Most youths in Kenya are contracting STIs or causing unwanted pregnancies because of their displeasure in using condoms as a form of contraceptive.

However, Kenyans should start embracing the use of condoms more often to help reduce the spread of STIs and control the high rate of early pregnancies in the country.

Without proper lubrication, sex can turn out to be a painful nightmare.

Most normal condoms which have flooded the market do not address that issue. 

They are not enjoyable, and dry after a short period making them slip off during the action.

For that reason, the researchers from Boston University developed new types of condoms which are self-lubricating

The condoms have a lining which becomes slippery when it comes in contact with any moisture.

In the research published in the Royal Society Open Science Journal, the condoms can stay slippery for as long as possible, proving its efficiency and encouraging safe sex in the process.

According to the team, the introduction of the condoms to the public might encourage the culture of condoms usage, minimising contraction of STIs.

The team insists that partners would not require the personal lubricants during their “vacation” as the new condoms are more satisfying.

The self-lubricating condoms are waiting for approval from the Food and Drugs Administration before being fully presented for public use.
