"The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is praising a small business in California called Origami Condoms which has invented a new condom designed to improve the anal sex sensation. The R.A.I. (Receptive Anal Intercourse) condom is unique for its drastic redesign of the traditional roll-on condom and it is, the company claims, the world's first to be specifically designed for this activity.
As the instructive (I must add kind of uncomfortable) video shows, the condom utilizes columns that expand and contract inside the body during intercourse.
Origami's website offers two advantages to using the R.A.I. condom instead of a traditional condom:
1. Easy insertion method that positions and anchors the condom internally
2. The tubular structure of the condom provides a natural internal liner for the penis in the internally lubricated condom.
3. The site also states that the condom is "intended to provide a receptive partner with the initiative to use a condom without negotiation."
Queerty notes that if the condoms are approved they could be in stores as soon as 2015. What do you think? Would you try it?
How and does it improve sexual sensation for both partners? Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola (TYT University) discuss here:
