Another Australian University Researches the Next Generation of Condoms

Posted by Kenny Condom on Mar 22, 2016

If you regularly buy condoms in Australia, you will probably be happy with this bit of news. Australia is conducting more and better research to develop the “next generation” of condoms than anywhere else in the world.

Australian University Researches the Next Generation of Condoms

The latest research is being done at Wollongong University and Swinburne University. We recently covered the new hydrogel material being developed at Wollongong University. But now, it’s even better as Dr Joseph Ciorciari, a cognitive neuroscientist at Swinburne University, is conducting research into the “pleasure attributes” of the new material.

Subjects in the research were given a “touch test” in which they were asked to touch five different materials. One was the hydrogel material and the others were various types of latex, both lubricated and non-lubricated. Subjects were asked to run three fingers over the material up to 80 times from right to left.

The subjects, who were hooked up to electroencephalogram (EEG) machines, were then assessed for “hot spots” of activity in their brains. These “hot spots” helped determine if there was a strong emotional response to any of the materials.

Only one material produced an EEG “hot spot” near the right front of the brain: the hydrogel. It also had a high “perceptual novelty response,” an indicator of “I want to feel more of that.” According to Dr Ciorciari, touching the hydrogel is “like...touching someone...covered in lubricant.”

Hydrogel condoms are promising for increasing pleasure for both sexes but they are even more promising because they can be infused with antiviral and antibacterial chemicals on both the inside and the outside.
