Gynaecologist Invent World’s First Unisex Condom, To Be Sold Worldwide (Photos)

A gynecologist in Malaysia claims to have invented the world’s first unisex condom.

He claims that can be used by both men and women and is constructed of a medical-grade material that is commonly used to treat injuries and wounds.

The ‘Wondaleaf Unisex Condom,’ according to its inventor, will empower people to better control their sexual health regardless of their sex or sexual orientation.

‘It’s just a conventional condom with an adhesive covering,’ said John Tang Ing Chinh, a gynecologist at Twin Catalyst, a medical supply company.

‘It’s a condom with an adhesive covering that attaches to the vagina or penis, as well as covering the adjacent area for extra protection,’ Tang said.

The adhesive is only applied to one side of the condom, he added, meaning it can be reversed and used by either sex.

Each box of Wondaleaf contains two condoms, and will cost 14.99 ringgit (£2.63). The average price for a dozen condoms in Malaysia is 20-40 ringgit (£3.50 – £7.02).

Tang makes the condoms using polyurethane, a material used in transparent wound dressings that is thin and flexible yet strong and waterproof.

‘You often don’t realise it’s there after you put it on,’ he said of dressings created from the material.

Tang claimed the Wondaleaf had through multiple rounds of clinical study and testing and will be commercially accessible in December through the firm’s website.

‘I am fairly optimistic that, given time, it will be a meaningful complement to the various contraceptive methods used in the prevention of unplanned births and sexually transmitted diseases,’ Tang added.
