I was watching a commercial about a new birth control pill called "Seasonique", I googled it & shortly after browsing through different sites about birth control methods I came across a very interesting discovery. Check it out. :D :D :D
What Is the Spray-on Condom?
Good ideas are usually explained in a few words. This condom will be sprayed on. In other words, you use a sort of a spray can, which will coat your penis in a rubber condom at the push of a button. Therefore it will fit all kinds of sizes and forms. It would allow you to be ready within a few seconds and the latex skin would be 0.040 mm to 0.015 mm thin. That is pretty thin when you compare it to the average of 0.060 mm in other condoms. [Source] Furthermore, the condom canít be damaged before use and youíll definitely put it on the right way.
All of this can result in better and safer sex. The spray-on condom fits perfectly, which means you wonít feel it (too much) and it wonít slip. This sounds like a serious leap forward for some, for sure. Now how far away from market-readiness are we at the moment?
The spray-on team is working on some technical issues, but they hope to be ready by early summer of 2008. One thing that might be crucial to the success of this product is the time it takes for the condom to be ready for use, which is directly connected with the time it takes till the latex is ready (vulcanization process). Testing and research should get this time down to around five to ten seconds (from around 20 seconds at the time).
Anyway, how much will people want to carry the can around? Or will it clearly become a home-based solution? Where and when you will be able to buy it remains to be seen. But if you are buying in online stores, you might be on the safe side.

Reality on TV, soon in Stores?
The idea of a spray-on condom is not really new. But certain issues like the vulcanization time and the absence of a reservoir tip make it difficult for such products to work. The same can be said for the german team working on this product right now. We will be watching any improvements closely, but after a short chat to the developer (4.12.) one thing is clear: the spray-on condom has to be considered just a product idea at the time.
