New condom requires just one hand to put on

More about:

Too much trouble and too little sensation is how many men feel about condoms. It was also how Dutch engineer Adrian Tunovic felt, but he decided to do something about it. And he came up with the Wingman.

As the name suggests, the condom has little wing devices and the makers claim it only take two seconds – and one hand – to put on. It’s a simple matter of holding the wings and unrolling. Because there’s no need to touch the actual condom there’s much less chance of tearing it. That means it can be thinner than conventional condoms, so there’s less loss of sensation.

Interested consumers in Africa can contact Wingman via their website.

I think this is brilliant. I hope this type of condom is effective. Good to know about this one.
