Sales of Spray-On Condom Remain Flaccid

We posted about spray-on condom when it was invented by a German sex-health educator named Jan Vinzenz Krause. Now, over a year and a half later, the sales of the spray-on condom - unfortunately - haven't, um, firmed up:

The prototype, which began testing last year, consists of a hard plastic tube with nozzles that spray liquid latex from all directions, much like the water jets in the tunnel of a car wash. According to Krause, there are numerous advantages to his spray-on condom. "The condom fits 100% perfectly, so the safety is much higher than a standard condom's, and it feels more natural."

But there are some stumbling blocks. The men who tested the spray-on condom had a few hesitations, Krause says. Some were "a little bit afraid to use the tube" and would only try it on their fingers. Others worried that the mechanism, which hisses as it sprays, might ruin the mood.

But the most serious problem with the design — which is what has kept the product off the market thus far — is that the latex takes too long to dry. Liquid latex currently takes two to three minutes to vulcanize, making it impractical. "For people to buy it," Krause says, "it needs to be ready in five to 10 seconds."

See if you could title this post a little better ...

By the time your condom dries, your partner has finished without you :P

No thicker tubes? No curved tubes? Only guys with specific equipment can use it. Besides, we have enough castration anxiety without putting our genitals into a machine

There would be a danger that you'd miss a spot, causing the condom to leak and become useless. Also, mess, delay in drying, you can't carry a can around with you in your purse or pocket, etc etc. Who gave this guy capital? It's just a gimmick product that ignores the reasons the current product is designed so.

I was gonna ask the same thing. So what happens to the stuff when the guy orgasms.... Is it gonna just burst through, or I dunno.... I just can't imagine where it would go if it's a really tight fit or something o_O
