It might sound awkward to some when people talk about intimacy. They need to be responsible enough to face the consequences of unsafe intercourse. Fortunately, a Malaysian gynecologist invented a unisex condom, a first in the world.
John Tang Ing Chinh created the Wondaleaf Unisex Condom. It’s a one-size-fits-all condom that can replace other condoms. It would greatly benefit those who have allergies to latex condoms.
“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. Once you put it on, you often don’t realize that it’s there,” Tang said.
Tang hopes that over time it will become a significant addition to the several contraceptive methods. People usually come up with these approaches to prevent STDs and unexpected pregnancies. It will enable people better manage their sexual health no matter what their gender is or sexual orientation.
Wondaleaf Unisex Condom Components
This condom consists of polyurethane with a thickness of 0.03 millimeters. It’s a medical-grade material usually found in medical gloves or dressings.
The Wondaleaf Unisex Condom is safer because it covers the entire genitalia. It will prevent sexually-transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
Users need to apply the adhesive to one side of the condom. It’s reversible, and either a male or female can use it. The Wondaleaf Unisex Condom is thin and flexible. At the same time, it’s incredibly strong and waterproof.
According to the United Nations (UN), condoms and tubal ligations are the most commonly used worldwide because they are effective. The World Health Organization (WHO) noted that condoms are the best contraceptive because they can prevent the spread of STDs and pregnancy.
Unisex Condom Clinical Research
The condom went through several stages of clinical study and testing. People can check the result on Wondaleaf’s website by December.
Currently, this product that Tang created together with his company Twin Catalyst is only available in Malaysia.
