    Wait...what?

    "Due to cultural and socioeconomic factors, women often are unable to negotiate the use of protection with their partner"


    Seriously...is that the nice way of saying rape!?

    I think its more along the lines of "don't have one? can't afford it? well, ok. Just this once..."

    They don't want to ruin their chances of getting lucky, so they take unnecessary risks to attain some little bit of happiness in a crappy existence known as modern Africa.

    I assume it means the woman wants protection, the guy is unwilling, the woman gives in so they have unprotected sex.

    On another note - "stealth condom"? Is that so they don't see you coming? :p

    Unfortunately that could be, among other things such as mental pressure and unavailability or even affordability of condoms.


    I think this sounds like a really good idea. Of course even more so if this technology is affordable.
