Once we have a material that is strong, safe and potentially more pleasurable we will need to move from a situation of ‘having to’ wear a condom to ‘wanting to’ use one.

There’s a new prophylactic in the condom game that’s supposed to feel like skin. Okay, we’ve all heard that one before, but the difference with this one is that it’s made out of a whole new material called hydrogel. Hydrogel condoms are still in the trial phase, but fortunately there are some pretty awesome condoms out there already, if you know where to look.
We’re all busy and juggling lots of responsibilities. While some FAMs require daily charting, there are some tools that can simplify using fertility awareness for birth control. For example, the iCycleBeadsTM app, based on the Standard Days Method, asks a woman to enter her period start date and then alerts her to her fertile days. During those days, women can use a condom or avoid vaginal sex.
We all want to get laid. But our constant need to stay connected is preventing us from actually connecting (in bed).

The secret is to use your technology addiction for the good. Chivalry has evolved.
“Apps That Will Get You Laid,” by Dan Rosenbaum on The Bold Italic, January 18th, 2013.
Why not pull that phone out and use it to charm the pants off your date instead of using it to rudely browse Facebook? Dan Rosenbaum has some excellent suggestions for how to use apps on your smartphone to “become a digital gentleman or gentle lady.” There are even apps that will help you set the mood if you make it past the date stage—and of course we have some tips for that too.

Hmmm… Would try it?
Long distance relationships just got a whole lot sexier.
Is this the best combination of sex and technology yet? Durex is working on a line of undergarments (Fundawear—badum-ching!) that vibrate when activated by mobile phone. That’s right, remote-operated vibrating underwear are in development.
They’re not available for purchase yet, but it looks like the Aussies will be the first to give this product a go. (Gives new meaning to the land down under…)
