It is so thin you would not even feel it is there as you get set to make the experience more pleasurable for both.


A Chinese company has created the world's thinnest latex condom.

The so-called Aoni condom measures just 0.036 millimetres in thickness, beating the previous record-holder Okamoto of Japan.

The ultra-thin condom has been manufactured by Guangzhou Daming United Rubber Products, a China-based company that produces roughly 200 million condoms annually.

Currently, Aoni is available only in Asia.

Victor Chan, who led the project, said the design process for the thin but durable Aoni condom was challenging.

"It was quite tricky. It took a lot of work to arrange the right mix and fine-tune the ingredients to give us the right performance," Chan was quoted as saying by The Province.

Chan is also working on developing a vibrating condom that targets a woman's G-spot and a sanitising condom that is coated in silver nanoparticles.

Innovations in condom technology have gained momentum lately.

Last year, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation pledged funding for research into the development of new condoms that are more pleasurable to wear.

The initiative aims to lower rates of unplanned pregnancies and reduce the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases by making improvements to condoms and encouraging more people to use them, added the report.
