What the shit, science people? I want peace of mind. I want a clean, yet morally disgusting, dick. I want a kid-free environment. Where's my hocus-pocus condom? Because let me tell you what, if some rando at the bar and I go home and she's all like "Don't worry, I got this. I just put in one of those magic condoms, we're all good. (Brings her voice down to a whisper) So blow it inside me." The only thing I'm blowing inside her is a fart in her goddamn mouth because I've seen people get burned before by the old "trust me, I'm on the pill" gag and the results are not hilarious.
According to Washington.edu:
A University of Washington team has developed a versatile platform to simultaneously offer contraception and prevent HIV. Electrically spun cloth with nanometer-sized fibers can dissolve to release drugs, providing a platform for cheap, discrete and reversible protection.
The electrospun fibers can release chemicals or they can physically block sperm, as shown here.
“Our dream is to create a product women can use to protect themselves from HIV infection and unintended pregnancy,” said corresponding author Kim Woodrow, a UW assistant professor of bioengineering. “We have the drugs to do that. It’s really about delivering them in a way that makes them more potent, and allows a woman to want to use it.”
They first dissolved polymers approved by the Food and Drug Administration and antiretroviral drugs used to treat HIV to create a gooey solution that passes through a syringe. As the stream encounters the electric field it stretches to create thin fibers measuring 100 to several thousand nanometers that whip through the air and eventually stick to a collecting plate (one nanometer is about one 25-millionth of an inch). The final material is a stretchy fabric that can physically block sperm or release chemical contraceptives and antivirals.
“This method allows controlled release of multiple compounds,” Ball said. “We were able to tune the fibers to have different release properties.”
One of the fabrics they made dissolves within minutes, potentially offering users immediate, discrete protection against unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
Another dissolves gradually over a few days, providing an option for sustained delivery, more like the birth-control pill, to provide contraception and guard against HIV.
“At the time of sex, are people going to actually use it? That’s where having multiple options really comes into play,” Krogstad said. “Depending on cultural background and personal preferences, certain populations may differ in terms of what form of technology makes the most sense for them.”
1. All these dissolving chemicals don't exactly sound safe and how would she have sex while the used scumbag disintegrates inside her? Is she now on the 15-day DL till that thing vanishes into thin air and eats all the cum, because where the hell does that go?
2. You see, even these scientists are questioning (last paragraph above) if chicks are going to use it because they know how deceitful a woman can be, especially if she wants something like a life-long commitment. For all we know she stuffed some Reynold's Wrap up there and is trying to pass it off as a condom. But if you were to make this product for a man -- and you figured out a way for it not to take DAYS to dissolve off his dick -- I'd argue that knowing he couldn't get STD's or kids (the kicker with us is eliminating both) he would use it religiously...or at least with ugly chicks that look extra filthy.
