They’re Putting Viagra in Condoms???

by Laura Whitehorn

Technically, no. But a new line of condoms is being lined with a Viagra-like gel to increase blood flow and banish erectile dysfunction. Condoms successfully reduce the risk of HIV if used properly, which may be difficult if a man cannot get (or stay) hard. Erectile dysfunction caused by ill-fitting or incorrectly applied condoms or by a stop in the action makes it tougher for some men to practice safer sex. The CSD500 latex condom, a.k.a. the “Viagra condom,” is awaiting regulatory approval in Europe. Next stop, stateside? Here’s hoping.
