Spray Me Baby, One More Time

The Grave Digger
Have you ever thought to yourself, I wish that my condoms were custom fit to my body?

Wish no more. German sex educators are developing a spray-on condom tailor-made for all sizes.

The Institute for Condom Consultancy, a Singen-based practice that offers advice on condom use, is at the forefront of the research, with a team lead by Jan Vinzenz Krause ( The concept: the man first inserts his penis into a spray can. With the push of a button, it is coated in a rubber condom.
It works by spraying on latex from nozzles on all sides," [Krause] said. "We call it the '360 degree procedure' -- once round and from top to bottom. It's a bit like a car wash."
(Link, courtesey Reuters). Krause estimates the product will be available in 2008, and will cost about 20 euro ($26) per can. The latex cartridges, which have approximately 20 uses, would cost around 10 euro.

In light of World Aids Day, I can certainly appreciate the efforts to make safe sex even safer, by preventing slippage and perhaps a relatively simple application process. Yet I can't help but wonder how seamlessly one can incorporate a spray can into the perfect romantic moment.
