Condoms have basically been the same for seventy years. Of course, some companies added striations and dots to enhance pleasure, but none tried to improve the latex used in production. Now, LELO HEX condoms are trying to revolutionize the market of condoms, making sexual relations safe even for people suffering from STDs.
The porn industry has marketed sex toys and other pleasure-inducing devices, creating a market for them. However, their continuous refusal to wear a condom, among other things, has led to a significant drop in the use of the prevention method.
According to the CDC, approximately one million people contract an STI in a single day. Unfortunately, the rate of condom usage is declining faster than the awareness campaigns can reach the population.
The National Survey of Behavior and Sexual Health that was conducted by Indiana University found that only one in four vaginal sexual intercourse acts is protected.
Among the main reasons for the rapid decline in condom usage is the fact that people think that it “ruins the mood,” even though the time allocated for the action is under a minute. Another reason invoked by the people is the fact that men think that a condom reduces pleasure (a survey made by Trojan in 2014 showed that half of the women don’t feel at ease when engaging in sexual intercourse without a condom).
Other men are convinced that condoms affect the quality of the erection. Scientists have already proved this claim to be false.
Finally, the most dangerous mentality of them all is the “it won’t happen to me” conception when it comes to unplanned pregnancy and STIs.
Charlie Sheen explains it beautifully in this add for the new and improved LELO HEX Condoms.
The new LELO HEX condoms are more special than any other such products currently on the market because they come with a new design and new material.
They are built to be stronger, more efficient in protecting the users, while also offering them the freedom of movement and the tactile pleasure that they would have without using the prevention product.
Their structure is similar to that of a honeycomb, reminding wearers of the scales of a snake.
Their inventor, Filip Sedic, declared that “there is a reason why honeycombs are the shape they are, and why snake scales move the way they do. It’s because hexagons are strong, symmetrical, and tessellate perfectly. They’re one of the nature’s go-to shapes for anything needing to be at once lightweight, and incredibly strong.”
Even Graphene, the strongest material ever to be built is hexagonal-shaped, so maybe LELO HEX condoms are on to something. Either way, they are trying to make condoms cool again and reduce the alarming rate of STI infections.
