So this…invention… is called the Sensis sheath.  It’s a strap-on condom that, as far as I’ve been able to research, is being marketed for those who are too drunk to be able to put on a standard condom.  I guess it’s easier to pull the straps to slide the condom on, rather than simply putting your fingers around the penis to slide it up.

Now, I have a few thoughts about this.  Not the least is that if you’re so drunk you can’t put a condom on you probably shouldn’t be having sex anyway.  If you frequently have sex with people when you’re drunk perhaps you need to look at your drinking habits and/or your behavior while drinking.

At the same time, if you are aware of this behavior and are taking measures to be protected, then that’s good!  I wish more people would be prepared like that.  Reduce unplanned pregnancies, reduce the spread of some venereal diseases and so forth.

This is one of those things that, in my opinion, is both “too much” and a good thing.  I mean, the idea that someone is so drunk they need a strap on condom just proves that they shouldn’t be having sex.  However, if they’re that determined to have sex at least there’s something out there to help them be protected during it.

What are your thoughts about the strap on condom??

 

EDIT –

After some thought and discussion with other’s it’s come to my thought (and others as the comment shows) is that this could really help persons with disabilities.  If you have dexterity issues, or other issues using your fingers or hands, then this little invention is something that could really help you use condoms, which is a very important thing.

So in this sense, major kudos to the inventor of this product.  I sincerely hope it gets marketing so that those who need it can use it.

    I think it’s a good thing.

    If you’re too drunk to be able top put on a regular condom, you could quite easily be too drunk to know you’re too drunk to make any proper decisions anyway :-)

    These condoms will also be awesome for disabled people & those without full use of their hands, who would otherwise struggle to put one on.

    Andy it’s funny you mentioned that it’d help people with disabilities. I was just about to edit my post to add that!

    That is so funny. Maybe it is for small guys, not drunk guys. Anyhow if it helps promote safer sex the mass produce them.

    About a year or so ago, the company was doing a promotion and I got one of these condoms for free in the mail. They really aren’t “strap-on condoms”. Or, at least, they’re not what I would consider a “strap-on condom”.

    Those little tabs do make it easier to put a condom on (especially since I’m the one that does it for my spoiled husband and I have nails that could easily puncture a condom), but they pull off, once you have the condom on properly. If this condom were truly a “strap-on condom”, to me, it would have to actually tie around the waist somehow and stay on that way. This? It’s just a condom with pull tabs.

    I don’t mean to pick. It’s just that I thought this was something entirely different when I saw the title, not just a Sensis condom.

    OH that’s so interesting! I looked all over and found basically no information about these things and I’m glad that you spoke up.

    So the straps just pop off then, huh? Yea. Totally not strap-on! LOL

    Yeah. Basically, you hold a tab in each hand to keep the condom open and pull down to unroll it onto the penis. Afterward, the little tabs pop off. Of course, the top of the condom still needs to be pinched when putting it on to allow space for semen, so your partner will have to do that.

    If I remember correctly, the sample one I received was lubricated. So, the little pull tabs kept my hands free of lubricant.
