Fast Condoms on Sale in South Africa

November 15, 2006

The new Pronto condom, whose promoters say can be put on in just one second thanks to special packaging, is now on sale in South Africa. The condom's designer, Willem van Rensburg, noted that low condom use is a major factor in the nation's AIDS epidemic and that many people report condoms are difficult to use. "People find it's a passion-killer, and they're willing to take their chances," he said. "By the time the condom is on, the mood is halfway out the window." "If you're slow, it'll take you three seconds. You can really do it in one," Roelf Mulder, van Rensburg's former business partner, said of the new condom. So far, Pronto condoms are available only in South Africa.
