Want Electrifying Sex? Look No Further Than This ‘Electric Condom’ Gadget

An electric condom in early stages of development just might take safe sex from analog to digital.
Last March, Bill and Melinda Gates challenged innovators worldwide to invent the “Next Generation Condom” — one that wouldn’t diminish the quality of sensations felt during sexNotable entries included a condom made from collagen derived from beef tendon claiming to approximate human skin, and a condom that actually tightens during intercourse. But none of these really give the jolt some may be looking for.

Last week, Georgia Tech students Firaz Peer and Andrew Quitmeyer introduced their “Electric Eel” condom on IndieGogo, which they describe as an “open-source digital condom prototype using electrodes and soft-circuitry.” In laymen’s terms, it supplies mild vibrations — a “digital” rather than “physical” enhancement to the standard condom, as the creators put it.
While battery-operated devices can be a woman’s best friend, the words “voltage,” circuitry” and “electricity” are rather terrifying to anyone with a vulva. But for men, the threadlike electrodes running throughout the condom, concentrated in the underside of the shaft, provide the type of stimulation condom-less sex can’t.
