Choosing Condoms Based On What Vegetable Your Penis Looks Like Could Be The Future

Like them or not, condoms are pretty important. Offering a first line of defence against all sorts of nightmare-inducing nastiness.

That said, despite being an essential item, lots of men find them uncomfortable to wear or can’t put them on properly, usually down to the fact that they’ve bought the wrong size -what with condoms managing to slip down the penis during sex 13.1 per cent of the time. Which is not exactly safe.

In fact, the Indian Council of Medical Research discovered that 20 per cent of condoms fail to work properly at all simply because they’re not the right size.All pretty concerning considering that the majority of men never really check the size of our condoms before throwing them on.

Taiwanese design student Guan-Hao Pan is looking to change that and has come up with an inventive new range of condoms of differing shapes and sizes – themed around vegetables.

Which sounds bonkers, and slightly hilarious but the more you think about it, it’s not actually a terrible idea.

The idea allows you to choose your safe-sex accessory based around something that you’re already familiar with like say, a cucumber… or a banana.

The condoms come packaged into colourful tubes and are wrapped to look like slices of the specific fruit or veg. Currently they’re available in five different sizes with the biggest clocking in at an eye-watering five centimeters in diameter, right down to three centimeters.

Commenting on the project for Dezeen, Guan-Hao Pan said: "Studies show that more than 60 per cent of users choose a wrong size while shopping for condom. In addition to discomfort, wrong size selection increases the risk of slippage and rupture.

“A condom becomes less effective if it is the wrong size, worn on the wrong side, or its tip is not squeezed when worn. Each condom comes in a specially designed case with a rising tip, making it easy to remove the condom from the right side while squeezing the tip at the same time.”

It's certainly better than the usual foil packet struggle...
