Researchers trying to create graphene condoms for greater pleasure
Melbourne: Scientists from the University of Manchester are trying to create thinner, stronger, safer and more pleasurable condoms, using world`s thinnest, strongest and most conductive material - graphene.
For the development of new composite nano-materials condoms, the research team has been awarded 100,000 dollars grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, News.com.au reported.
The research will be led by Dr. Aravind Vijayaraghavan at Manchester`s newly established National Graphene Institute.
Vijayaraghavan said that graphene will be tailored to enhance the natural sensation during intercourse while using a condom, which should encourage and promote condom use.
This will be achieved by combining the strength of graphene with the elasticity of latex to produce a new material, he said.
