Do you like sex? YEAH!
Are you not as keen on HIV? YEAH!
Great, because assistant professor at Texas A&M University Mahua Choudhury, PhD may forever alter the world of safe sex with a rubberless condom.
Choudhury's condom, made from a durable, elastic, water-based polymer called hydrogel (used in contact lenses), is infused with flavonoids, aka natural, plant-based antioxidants.
The flavonoids are essential in the event a condom breaks as they prevent the AIDS virus from reproducing upon release.
In an interview with Daily Mail, Choudhury insisted if the condom is developed properly, “it will revolutionize the HIV prevention initiative,” which is something we can all support.
We are not only making a novel material for condoms to prevent the HIV infection, but we are also aiming to eradicate this infection if possible… it could be a life-saving thing.
Flavonoids do more than keep humans safe and healthy. The antioxidants increase blood flow, relaxing smooth muscles and maintaining high nitric-oxide levels. This allows the condoms' wearers to get and stay aroused.
The new wonder contraceptive is still six months of testing away from being available to eager customers, but if all goes well, this product will be a revolutionary one.
