A Condom that Kills HIV and Herpes Could Be Available Within Months. MONTHS!
These stories chocked full of hope about outstanding advancements in sexual health usually come with “years” tacked onto the end of them. But not this one. Not this story about a condom that can actually kill HIV, HPV and Herpes. Oh, no. This condom could be available in months.
Per Daily Mail:
A new condom designed to kill the HIV virus could be available to buy within months, after key regulatory approval.
Tests have shown the VivaGel condom is effective in deactivating 99.9 per cent of HIV, herpes and human papilloma virus cases.
Australian bio-tech firm Starpharma has developed the antiviral Viva Gel, the active ingredient designed to tackle sexually transmitted infections, in the condom’s lubricant.
The product has now received a receipt of Conformity of Assessment Certification by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration – a similar certificate to the CE mark in Europe – paving the way for mass production.
It means the condom, the first of its kind, should be available to buy in the coming months.
Here’s the thing: Condoms are already supposed to help stave off these horrible atrocities as it is, and yet, a lot of people still don’t use them. Are we to believe total assurance that nothing bad can happen to your junk will cause people to wrap it up more than fear already does?
Shit, it might.
People do like guarantees.
Side Note: I bet prostitutes see a 100% increase in business once these things become mainstream. The thought of fucking a prostitute will go from being “ew, that’s gross” to “eh, what’s the worst that can happen?”
