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, 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.
