Condoms that Spray On

Even in an innovative society, sex too often gets the "short end of the stick" when it comes to R&D. This innovation comes from a German inventor, Jan Vinzenz Krause, director of the Institute for Condom Consultancy:
"We thought why not come up with a condom that fits the man rather than vice versa? This would represent a revolution in the condom market," said Krause, whose institute gives sex education as well as providing advice on AIDS prevention and contraception.

The system works a bit like a car wash. The man puts his penis in a chamber and presses a button to start the jets of liquid latex, sucked from a detachable cartridge. The rubber dries in seconds and is later rolled off and discarded like a conventional condom.

The aim is for the process to take just 10 seconds but at present the latex drying time is around 20 to 25 seconds. "We're working to shorten that time," said Krause.

Presumably, the man's penis would need to be erect when he places it inside the latex application chamber. There is no word on whether Krause is working on a form of latex that tastes good or that incorporates nano-vibrators within its structure.

Still, this invention demonstrates a refreshing innovativeness in approaching sex and contraception that may bode well for the future. We hope that more inventors will get on board the sex innovation bandwagon.
