View Full Version : Are condom manufacturers trying to capture the gliding action?

I keep seeing ads for condoms and they're shaped like this:
with the end shaped the way it is to provide "natural movement." Is that just another word for gliding action?
Coincidence? Or are condom companies trying to incorporate foreskin technology into their designs? :cool:
Who knows. I've never encountered a specialty condom that worked as advertised. "Feels like nothing's there!" if by "nothing" you mean "a trash bag," but maybe in a couple years we'll see the public get more gliding-action-conscious and start to warm up to foreskins... for her pleasure.

For years now, I've told visitors to the NOCIRC booth at the Ann Arbor Street Art Fairs that ribbed and textured condoms are an attempt, on the part of the condom manufacturers, to put a cheap imitation of the gliding action of the foreskin into their products.
You see light bulbs light up inside their heads when you tell them this.
It's very good intactivist augumentation strategy.
Part of the problem we have in convincing the public that circumcision is an abomination is that many people just refuse to accept the idea that the "dear, sweet" doctor that they know and love would do something underhanded - something harmful that compromises their ability for intimate relations for life - to make a fast buck. The idea that manaufacturers of condoms would do something underhanded to replace it, however, immediately registers with them.

Have you thought of emailing a few condom companies? Im sure they would shine some light on this. Might even do it myself. I spent my life wondering how guys could use condoms, as I never felt anything using them. This makes me realise how circumcision would actually put people at risk of HIV, because most would not want to use them after being circumcised.
That diagram looks like they are designed for intact men, and many condoms I have used have usually been quite wide like that. I use condoms for masturbation, as they help protect me from friction sores. However, since I have been restoring, which has been only a few weeks, I dont seem to be having that problem anymore (touch wood). This could either be to do with the fact I have slightly looser skin, or with the manual tugging I have done, it has toughened up the skin, not sure which.
We need to find the answer to your question, I have no doubt that research has already been done somewhere

Of course, all the baggy-end designs are an effort to give some slinking as in natural sex. We discussed this regarding Trojan Ecstacy last year:
= = = = =
try this experiment. Use lots of water-based lube on the inside of a condom. He will feel his shaft sliding inside the slippery condom and you will feel motion from his penis but very little friction (until the condom slips off). This is a lot like what sex will feel like once he has ample slack.
Holy shit I just saw a commercial on Cable for Trojan Ecstasy condoms and this is EXACTLY what they do - SIMULATE SEX WITH A FORESKIN!

Ah, sorry, forgot to use the "search" function.
On another note: does anybody else think "foreskin technology" would make a sweet band name?

"Gliding Foreskin Technology" would turn even more heads, I think.

Also with a reference to the other thread (about an idea for a viral video), maybe someone could come up with a spoof condom specially for foreskinless cocks--complete with synthetic foreskin "For the natural feel--for him and her!!"
It should have a perfectly formed (latex!) prepuce, that rolls "just like the real thing--no more chafing!!"
If it was made funny instead of grisly or partisan, it would get way more views, and therefore be more likely to go viral. Give it a snappy name as well, and it could do some good with respect to publicity.
Of course, it would mean making a laughing stock not only of the practice, and its of proponents, but also the unfortunate infants that had it done yesterday, today, tomorrow. Might get pulled...but not before the furore (hopefully).
