A student at the Pratt Institute, New York has developed a lover’s kit concept which includes spray-on condoms and a remote controlled smart bra. Designed to make safe sex more enjoyable, creator Michelle Chu believes that the spray-on condom would be easier and more fun to put on than traditional rubbers.
The spray is housed in an aerosol-style can – meaning the gaseous latex condom can be simply sprayed on the penis. Chu believes the simplicity of the spray will lead to an increased number of people using the product – potentially improving safe sex statistics.
Dubbed Girlplay, the lover’s kit includes the spray-on condoms, a smart bra and remote-controlled condoms which can change their flavour and sensation at a touch of a button. Aimed at bold, daring women – the bra can be unhooked using the remoted control.
Chu explains the products’ aims on her website: "It produces a line of spray-on condoms that uses the latest technology to fit each and every size, for both male and female. These spray-on condoms are made for the perfect fit, and function like spray-on bandages in the marketplace today.
"They also come in a set called the Lover’s kit, which includes multiple parts like bras and remote controls to enhance our customers’ experience. We create revolutionary spray-on condoms that are perfect for today's fast-paced environment.”
The design is still in its concept stages, but Chu is confident it can shake-up an industry which she believes needs some refreshing.
However, this is not the first time that a spray-on condom has been mooted. In 2008, German sexual health teacher, Jan Vinzenz Krause, created a similar design. Inspired by the mechanics of a car wash, Krause’s invention was ultimately unsuccessful because of the three minute wait lovers had to undertake for the condom to dry.
A Chinese company have also made spray-on protection for women – producing a foam which acts as a barrier against semen. If successful, the Girlplay spray-on condom would become the first of its kind, designed for the penis.
It could be
a few years until the spray-on condom is available on the open market. For the
time being, the most popular option is the good old fashioned rubber condom.
