New Erection-boosting Condom Awaits Approval

A new erection-enhancing condom, informally dubbed “the Viagra condom,” is awaiting regulatory approval in Europe and could appear on the shelves of European pharmacies and supermarkets by the end of the year, The Wall Street Journal reports. The product is licensed to SSL International, the owner of Durex, the world’s top-selling condom brand. The new condom uses a gel that contains an agent designed to boost blood flow without degrading latex. The new condom specifically targets men who have difficulty maintaining an erection while wearing a condom.

This is a brilliant idea. However, much effort would have been put in the aspect of improved sensation for both parties in the act. Most people tend to shun from condom use due to reduced sensation as compared to maintaining an erection while wearing a condom. All in all, its a product in its own category

when will this condom come to Nigeria, ineresting development.

interesting development, but it would be more productive to research n market a condom that's far more pleasurable while remaining strong n unbroken. if the gel contained within is a Caverject/TriMix style compound with progesterone and/or other involuntary vasodilators, an Rx will be needed to purchase it in the USA. if it's a Viagra-type PDE-5 inhibitor, then lack-of-sensation remains a weakness...Viagra can't ensure erection if one is no longer sexually aroused. glad for the innovation tho.
