Failed Condom Technologies: The Condom Applicator Slingshot Gun

May 23, 2013 by Justin Lehmiller

“Nothing fascinates male human beings like guns and sex, so you must see the huge potential this has.”

Yesterday, I posted a story about the Origami condom, an innovation in condom technology that may ultimately change the future of safe and pleasurable sex. The collapsible prophylactic has received praise from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is offering a $100,000 grant to anyone with credible plans to develop a condom that more people would be willing to use. The makers of the Origami condom aren’t the only ones trying to reinvent safe-sex, though. Today, I bring you the Condom Applicator Slingshot Gun, a trigger-activated piece of technology designed to apply your condom as quickly as possible.

I think the video below pretty much speaks for itself–the device looks painful, splintery, and not incredibly precise. So, it’s probably not going to receive any grants or wind up on the shelf at your local sex shop. But, boy, is this video fun to watch. Enjoy!
