Teenagers are taught to be safe and wear a rubber before they do the deed in order to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancies and STDs. One group of teens in Britain has come up with a way to know for certain if a man has an STD with a condom that glows in the dark if he has the clap or the herpes. It’s sort of like that dye that turns blue in a swimming pool if someone pees and you know it’s not safe to take a dip.
The fluorescent jimmy hat works when molecules in the latex attach to an STD bacteria causing it to glow. They call this boner killing system S.T.EYE- or sexually transmitted eye- which sounds f’ing horrifying like you could grow an eyeball on the tip of your penis.
Three students from the Isaac Newton Academy, Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali and Chirag Shah came up with the condom concept as part of a science fair, TeenTech London. Of the prototype prophylactic, Ali said;
“We wanted to make something that made detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before, so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the often-scary procedures at the doctors.”
The bright pecker ponchos will also glow different colors for different diseases. So instead of taking a trip to the doctor to find out what that bump is on his johnson, a man and his hookup can forego a night of passion to sit down together to use the color coded Trojans to identify his STD. The condom will glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes and blue for syphilis. No word on what happens if you have all three at the same time, but hopefully when you wrap that rascal your penis won’t look like the laser show from Pink Floyd’s The Wall.
The teens are working to find a condom manufacturer to distribute their bright idea and already have some interest. Which brings us to our:
