• The Future of Condoms



    In March 2013, Bill Gates launched a campaign called the “Condom Challenge“.

    The current problem with condoms is that they have been pretty much the same for hundreds of years. To ensure that lives are saved by having safer sex, the Gates Foundation offered a grant worth $100,000 to anyone who could come up with a sexy new redesign for condoms. After reviewing 500 submissions, the Gates Foundation has found 11 grant-worthy proposals for a new condom.

    In other words, say goodbye to those regular, old condoms you hate so much because sexy, new condoms are coming very soon!

    Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for development of all the new condom designs to be underway before we can know more about them. But the Gates Foundation did reveal two new designs they are currently funding. Want to know more?¬† Continue Reading

  • Origami Condoms

    So long latex!

    So long latex!

    The adult industry is ready to take on Measure B, the L.A. county mandate forcing all adult performers to wear condoms. It’s going to be a long, hard fight. Luckily, the adult industry is well equipped to handle things long and hard.

    One of the reasons that the industry is fighting Measure B is because latex condoms can be hazardous to performers. I know, it’s confusing. Condoms do “protect” performers from all the regular sex-related hazards (infection & pregnancy) but they aren’t practical for comfort. Think about the worst your skin has ever been chafed and then put it on your labia.

    Doesn’t sound like fun, right?

    But the problem isn’t just Measure B, it’s the latex condom itself. Don’t be fooled by gimmicks like “ribbed for her pleasure” or “banana flavored”, there have been too few developments in condom-design in recent years. They’ve been pretty much the same since the 1920’s. I mean, how come I can Google the closest gas station to buy condoms on my goddamn phone but I can’t even get the damn things on!?

    Condoms need a breakthrough. The good news? It may have already happened with Origami Condoms.
