Yeah, I know. I couldn’t quite convince myself it wasn’t a joke, until a fair amount of Googling showed this same piece showing up on a number of news sites. Until now, I have my doubts, but here’s the deal. A man by the name of Hryhory Chausovsky, a scientist in Ukraine, claims to have invented a new type of condom that plays music during intercourse.
A miniature loudspeaker and motion sensor implanted in the condom’s upper cuff provides a range of musical tones during sex. Music volume depends on intensity of love-making and tone varies based on the sexual position.
The sound is said to be very primitive, similar to the way early cellphone ringtones would sound. He claims to have developed this both as a novelty item, and as a way to help love-making be more pleasurable. Testing has shown no danger of electric shock to users of the device, Chausovsky claimed.
We’re not certain love-making would be more pleasurable as a result of sounds emanating from our, parts, as they’re being put to use, but we’re willing to accept that there are people on this planet who’ll get a kick out of the strangest things.
