A liquid condom? What the heck?

China has approved and now is selling liquid condoms.

This condom (unlike its predecessor) is designed for female rather than male usage. The condom-in-a-can is essentially an foam spray that the manufacturer claims forms a physical membrane inside the vagina, protecting it from infection, acting as a barrier to pregnancy and providing a lubricating effect.

This is also more than ‘functional’ than a traditional condom. It can effectively kill gynaecological disease pathogens such as staphylococcus aureus, Candida, coliform bacillus, and can prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

“It can remain in the vagina for a long time without destroying the vagina's chemical balance," the company adds. "Daily use of this product can help maintain genital hygiene and prevent infection by pathogens". Click here to read the full article.
