That's the idea that bubbles after different projects right now , the goal is reinventing the condom so as to improve or at least maintain , the pleasure in intimate relationships , rather than decrease , as we all appreciate what happens now .

A project conducted by researchers at the University of Tennessee , try thinner condoms manufactured with a material known as superelastomero , which can stretch more than rubber.

Another project , conducted by researchers at the University of Manchester, try to reinvent the prophylactic with a material called graphene with latex. The resulting material will be thinner , stronger, more elastic and perhaps more enjoyable.

Both projects have received $ 100,000 in funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation , under the challenge : " New Generation Condoms " . Defy The organization says that condoms have been around for about 400 years , but have been very little improvement in the past 50 years. The hope is that by getting more comfortable to use condoms , men are more willing to use them, which would reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
