Self-lubricating condom lasts 1,000 thrusts

Warning: Slippery when wet.

Scientists at Boston University have developed a futuristic super-condom that forms its own lube and lasts for up to “1,000 thrusts.”

The research team was one of 11 that received $100,000 grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2013 to improve on classic prophylactics.

The self-lubricating design is the latest to emerge from the contest, with a study published Wednesday in the Royal Society Open Science journal that hints at the sheath’s promise.

When the condom is exposed to water or moist environments — including those in human orifices — hydrophilic polymers react to make the surface slick.

Unlike traditional condoms that lose lube during friction, this version continues to get slippery with exposure to moisture. It’ll more than outlast most users — a typical romp in the sack takes just 100 to 500 thrusts, according to Vice.

The long-lasting wonder may also serve the competition’s larger goal of reducing unwanted pregnancies and curbing the spread of STIs around the world: Compared with regular condoms, the self-slicking version creates less friction, which reduces the odds of breakage. And when a small group of men and women were asked to touch the condom and rate their impressions, 73 percent said they preferred the auto-lubing rubber to traditional condoms (both lubed and unlubed).

Indeed, some respondents who said they “never” use condoms said they would use this one if it were made available to them.
