Can an Electric Eel Enhance Your Sexual Experience?
Last March, Bill and Melinda Gates challenged innovators worldwide to invent the “Next Generation Condom” — one that wouldn’t diminish the quality of sensations felt during sex. Notable entries include a condom made from collagen derived from beef tendon claiming to approximate human skin, and a condom that actually tightens during intercourse. But none of these really give the jolt some may be looking for.
Last week, Georgia Tech students Firaz Peer and Andrew Quitmeyer introduced their “Electric Eel” condom on IndieGogo, which they describe as an “open-source digital condom prototype using electrodes and soft-circuitry.” In laymen’s terms, it supplies mild vibrations — a “digital” rather than “physical” enhancement to the standard condom, as the creators put it.

It’s well know that battery operated devices can be a woman’s best friend, but the words “voltage,” “circuitry,” and “electricity are rather terrifying to anyone with a vulva.
