The libido-killing phrase "safe sex" just got a little hotter, thanks to a new hi-tech condom designed by Shengxi Chen, a biochemist at Arizona State University.
Chen's futuristic condom isn’t made from latex like traditional rubbers, but from a hydrophilic material that basically mimics human skin, so it doesn’t even feel like you're using a condom. When a condom makes you feel like you're hitting it bareback (but without the annoying STDs and surprise babies), you’re more likely to use it!
“Human skin has a lot of water; we call it hydrophilic. Most condoms are hydrophobic, but this material likes water,” he added. So yeah, while normal condoms just sit on your junk like a pair of ill-fitting jeans, the only thing you’ll feel with Chen’s new condom is the warm embrace of lady parts.
Even better, the material has 1.7 times more tensile strength than normal condoms, so you don’t have to worry about it breaking or anything, either. Isn’t that amazing? A barely-there condom that feels like the kiss of an angel, that won’t break even under the ‘roughest’ of conditions.
Currently, Chen is seeking funding in order to make this condom available to horndogs everywhere. “We are trying to put it to the market because I think that it is truly interesting. It’s better than the other condoms, and we don’t want this to just stay in the lab," he said.
We don’t want it to stay in the lab either, Chen.We need those condoms in our bedrooms.
