A Condom That Tests for STDs Just Before Sex

Thursday, July 2, 2015

Just last week, I was joking with some colleagues about whether we could sell a stick of gum with our condoms that, when chewed, would turn a certain color to indicate whether or not you had an STD. It turns out, we were not the only ones with such idea and they ignored the gum and went right to the condom itself.

A group of teenagers from England’s Isaac Newton Academy have developed a condom that actually will change colors when it comes into contact with an STD. Moreover, the condom will become a different color when exposed to different STDs, ensuring an accurate diagnostic right before the moment…and one that will likely kill the moment!
