They also prevent pregnancy. Plus they are cheap. One major complaint is that they feel dry and uncomfortable.
A team of Boston University researchers has developed a self-lubricating condom to encourage more widespread condom use in order to prevent sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies. The team, composed of BU professors and graduate students — both current and former — published their findings Wednesday in the British scientific journal Royal Society Open Science. The study aimed to increase condom usage rates, especially in developing countries, said former BU student Ruiqing Xiao, who designed the lubrication-producing material.
We envision a world where engaging in safer sex is as second nature as wearing a seatbelt. Buckle up. It's not finished until it's perfect, and it's never really perfect. That's our motto for everything we've ever created.

Scientists have reportedly found a way to make condoms lubricate themselves when they come in contact with human skin. This could make sexual intercourse mode pleasurable, encouraging more people to use condoms, and thus reduce infections and unwanted pregnancies. Condoms have been around for a long time — there are references to condoms being used to avoid sexually-transmitted infections STIs as early as the 16th century.
A new self-lubricating latex could drive greater use of contraceptives, according to the team of scientists behind the invention. Researchers at Boston University have developed prophylactic sheaths from a specially treated membrane which becomes slick and slippery in the presence of natural bodily fluids. Unlike lubricants based on water or oils, the new latex developed by the team retains its lubrication almost indefinitely because it is hydrophilic and attracts water.
Volunteers separate condoms to give away during a free HIV testing event. Boston College is getting support from prominent Catholic universities in its efforts to stop a student group from giving away condoms on campus. According to the Boston Globe, officials at Catholic colleges and universities — including Notre Dame, Georgetown and Catholic University — say their policies are similar to that of Boston College, which threatened disciplinary action against students distributing condoms on school grounds.
After years of operating on campus without incident, the group, Boston College Students for Sexual Health, received a letter in March from the administration, ordering them to stop giving out free condoms and sexual health education kits to students. According to The New York Times, the letter explained that "the distribution of condoms is not congruent" with the values and traditions of Boston College:. While we understand that you may not be intentionally violating university policy, we do need to advise you that, should we receive any reports that you are, in fact, distributing condoms on campus, the matter would be referred to the student conduct office for disciplinary action by the university.
Condoms get a bad rap for being a bad wrap. Men often complain of discomfort, diminished sensation and poor fit. A recent federal study found only a third of American men use them. Now, changes by the Food and Drug Administration and industry-standards groups have opened the door to the condom equivalent of bespoke suits.
