Making A Better Condom

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Will $100K from Bill Gates help to create a super condom for the future? That’s the hope. But where could the condom possibly go from here? Laci looks at some of the wild ideas scientists are developing right now.

Read More:

“Develop the Next Generation of Condom”

“We are looking for a Next Generation Condom that significantly preserves or enhances pleasure, in order to improve uptake and regular use.”

“Reinventing The Condom”

“Quite simply, condoms save lives. But if condoms are so marvelous, why are we seeking ideas for the Next Generation of Condoms in our current Round of Grand Challenges Explorations?”

“Finally, the Bacon Condom Has Arrived”

“More than most other products, condoms seem to arouse people’s creative ingenuity.”


A Durban-based company will take up the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s challenge to design a ‘next generation condom’.”

“Drug-Eluting Fibers for HIV-1 Inhibition and Contraception”

“Multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) that simultaneously prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unintended pregnancy are a global health priority.”

A condom that stays in a vagina for a few days? I don't have a vagina, but that sounds uncomfortable.

Why is she always squinting?

How about better fitting condoms? Or custom made? Not all penises are the same size and shape. That would be a nice innovation instead of the one design in different sizes for all.

I once knew a girl who chewed condoms…
Lets just say she wasn't the sanest of people.

The  biggest problem with condoms for some people is they hurt or are horribly uncomfortable to wear. The "one size fits all" mentality just doesn't work. Even the more custom sized ones are terrible. Why don't we have custom fit condoms? We get our suits tailored, why not our condoms?

Condommade of seamen oh wait

Melvin Luna September 11, 2014 - 3:46 AM

What about that one condom that they are trying to make where the material actually feels like skin, that way the pleasure wont be taken away.

If they want guys to always reach for a condom before engaging in sex, then why not add something to the lubricant that acts like a stimulant for "longer, stronger, erections"? I'm not sure exactly what that added substance would be, or how it would work (vasodilator or vasoconstrictor, or both?)  but there must be people out there who know the physiological aspects of ED. I'm sure I don't understand the physiological aspects, or the psychological either.

they should make a condom that is a spray and it taste like jolly ranchers and then it hardens like candy then when your done to get the Condom off use baby oil

If you want a really sturdy, thin, and sensitive condom, make it out of graphene.
