One of the most common reasons people hate using condoms (bar the total buzz kill) is because they simply don’t allow you to feel as much pleasure when having sex compared to doing the deed without them.
That could all be about to change thanks to the University of Wollongong in Australia, who are working on developing a condom that replaces the latex with a new material, something dubbed a tough hydrogel, that will still protect against diseases and pregnancy, but will allow wearers to feel far more pleasure.
Doctor Robert Gorkin spoke about his hopes for the condom and claimed:
We’ll be able to look at brain activity to see whether it really feels better than latex,
If you make them so pleasurable that people can’t wait to put them on, then more people will use them, and we can hopefully stop the spread of disease. It’s as simple as that.
The skin like condom is still in the very early stages of development, so will not be hitting shelves (or d*cks) just yet, but with Gorkin now working with the Swinburne University of Technology, we are hoping for some progress very soon!
