In another (puts on booming significant sound effect) Great Moment In Condom History, according to AVN the FDA has approved a new type of female condom. Called the FC2 this new condom is made with nitrile instead of the previous FC’s polyurethane. There are two benefits to the material switch:
- Nitrile is 30% cheaper than polyurethane, so there will be a marked drop in price from the previous $2.80-4.00 per female condom.
- Nitrile is significantly less squeaky than polyurethane says the ladies at Akimbo.
Yup, I can see how being less squeaky could be an asset in a condom. Unless you’re doing it with a clown, in which case – tell them to keep the nose on.
