Condoms With Handles Help Keep “The Mood”

According to Grove Medical, disruption of “the mood” is a main barrier to condom use. With their Sensis condoms with QuikStrips, the company tries to overcome this mental handicap by offering a new condom technology to protect the passion while practicing safer sex.

The QuikStrips are little handles on the side of the condom that work much like the pull-off tabs on a bandage, creating an application that helps to apply the condom quickly in the right way.

Presumed benefits include appropriate spacing at the reservoir, no touching of the condom as it’s being applied, and less chance of accidental inside-out-then-flip contamination.

Sensis Condoms with Quikstrips were introduced in the first quarter of 2009. A free sample can be ordered from the Sensis website for those living in the United States.

From the press release:

“The inspiration for Sensis with QuikStrips™ condoms was the lost opportunity for a passionate moment resulting from fumbling with a condom,” says R. Beau Thompson, founder of Grove Medical LLC. “That personal experience, plus a desire to help mitigate preventable diseases is our passion, and we hope it helps keep the passion for couples who use these condoms.”

Eat To Save Your Life: Another Half-True Diet Book
