IXü LLC announces it's been awarded a series of five U.S. Patents combining basic female condoms with extremely popular miniaturized electronic sex-toys, and it's making the technology available to the Bill Gates Foundation Condom Contest and other interested parties.
The combination of the two items creates a hi-tech hybrid condom that ‘works!’ extremely well during intercourse, according to an independent User Survey.
One could conceivably control "accessories" (e.g. vibe, pulse, sound, light, heat) on your smart condom from your smart phone.
The R&D company is now seeking strategic business partners to commercialize the technology. It believes the array of potential “smart” condoms fitted with miniaturized electronic sextoys perfectly addresses a Gates Foundation contest criteria: a new condom people would prefer to use - - even more than using no condom at all.
The pre-market User Survey results were not surprising to the researchers, considering the explosive popularity of adult sextoys today. Some are sold now in neighborhood drugstores, right next to the condoms.
The 50-couple User Survey was conducted with a prototype “combo-condom” over several intercourses. The survey tested a basic latex VA w.o.w. Feminine Condom, specially fitted with an adult-toy mini-vibrator device. The survey revealed the extraordinary orgasm-rate achieved by females - - after only the first use: 70%. By the fourth use, and perhaps as remarkable - - all 50 female participants achieved orgasm during intercourse: 100%.
Indeed, 82% of the User Survey female participants responded they would purchase the condom if it were available on the retail market.
IXü, is a small privately held company and maker of the #1 media-rated InSpiral male condom (e.g. Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan).
The company is interested in commercial and non-profit social group partnerships and new factory sourcing to begin bringing its condom technology to global markets. The company previously distributed its patented condoms to Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Boots, etc. http://www.inspiral.tv
The company claims with broad female condom patents now secured, the resultant variety of interactive condoms can stimulate any of the five senses.
The patents reveal condoms one can communicate and control (by wireless remote, smart phone, etc.), while the condoms perform various stimulating functions of vibe/pulse sensations; sound, heat and light emissions.
Various health-related agencies have previously reported that men prefer female condoms rather than male condoms. But making a female condom women preferred to use rather than male condoms has been a market-blocking issue.
“Perhaps this announcement will evoke an “aha!” moment from various governmental, non-profit or commercial entities who could promote this proven technology,” said an IXü spokesperson.
“This maybe the condom Gates and the safe-sex world is looking for - - and it’s ready to unveil,” said the company spokesperson. U.S. Patent #8485196 was received on July 16, 2013.
Results from the User Survey can be requested by contacting the company.
