New Condom Concept for Anal Intercourse Developed by Strata Various Product Design
Inventor, Daniel Resnic, began an 18 mo, Phase 1 Feasibility & Acceptability Study of a new condom concept, the ORIGAMI R.A.I. (receptive anal intercourse) Condom, the first condom ever designed and tested for receptive anal intercourse. The company will develop the device, conduct preclinical testing, and conduct a User Preference Study and a Couples Acceptability & Performance Study.
This is the first condom ever designed and tested for receptive anal intercourse. The new condom concept is intended to be more attractive and more pleasurable for both partners. 'The ORIGAMI R.A.I. Condom has a 'no-fumble' method of insertion that is quick and easy to use, according to the inventor.
Extensive R&D will cost several million dollars. The company anticipates the ORIGAMI R.A.I. Condom will eventually set a new global standard and become the preferred condom for BOTH men and women, which could surpass male condom sales for A.I. use, 3 to 1 by 2022. The study PI is the inventor, Daniel Resnic. The ultimate goal is STD prevention, which will be subsequently considered in a Phase II Study.
The inventor's objectives are two-fold; to place emphasis on pleasure while simultaneously improving safety. The custom designed material was preclinically tested for biocompatibility and showed zero viral permeability to the Phi-X174 bacteriophage, one of the smallest known viruses. In contrast, a leading brand of a male latex condom was tested with 5% viral permeability.
Following successful Phase I results, additional feasibility studies in other regions of the world will be conducted while the company pursues Phase II research for FDA review.
