Our world has changed. But the condom hasn’t. Until now, if you believe adult toy company LELO.
It has made what it is claiming is the first major change to condom design in 70 years with the launch of the new LELO HEXTM.
The new condom, says LELO, is structurally different because it applies a unique hexagonal web throughout the latex, which means it looks and performs differently to any condom in the world today. (lelo.com)
After being in development since 2011 LELO has finally released more details on the condom, which “aims to change the way the world views safe sex.”
As LELO believes one way of encouraging safe sex and condom use is by making condoms more appealing to use, rather than more freely available, the LELO HEXTM has changed the structure of the condom for extra flexibility, and to mold to the skin for extra comfort. Its unique webbed texture also prevents slippage and combines both thinness and strength for sensitivity but with reduced breakage.
The new design is also being welcomed by actor Charlie Sheen, who can be found on the brand’s website encouraging condom use and supporting LELO HEXTM and their efforts to revolutionize the condom.
The condoms are available to pre-order now from LELO’s website at a reduced price of 12€ for a box of 12, giving those curious to try the new design 40% off the regular retail price.
HEXTM will start shipping on August 15, 2016.
