SIBU: A Malaysian gynaecologist at medical supplies firm Twin Catalyst has invented a unisex condom, the first unisex condom in the world that can be worn by females or males.
“It’s a condom with an adhesive covering that attaches to the vagina or penis, as well as covering the adjacent area for extra protection,” said Dr John Tang Ing Chinh, the inventor of the new condom.
The condom, which will cost RM14.99 per box, can be reversed and used by either sex.
“Once you put it on, you often don’t realise that it’s there.
“It will be a meaningful addition to the many contraceptive methods used in the prevention of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases,” Tang told Reuters.
