The Origami Condom is a Clever Alternative to Regular Prophylactics

We've seen a lot of clever condom designs since the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced their competition to design the better condom, but these origami condoms may be the most clever.

The origami condom design from the predictably called company ORIGAMI Condoms uses techniques that are normally used in the folded paper art form and brings it over to safer sex. The creators of the origami condom claim that their folded design not only is easier to put on than the normal design, but that the folded ridges cause increased stimulation for both partners. The designers have also come up with both male and female versions, as well as versions for the anus of both genders.

The origami condoms are currently being tested in clinical trials and likely a year or two away from commercial availability.
