The author doesn’t come right out and say it. But it seems plausible enough. Men who are circumcised and therefore desensitized dislike condoms because, well, they lose their erections due to desensitization. A need without a product until now.
It’s been dubbed the “Viagra condom,” but that’s not entirely accurate. The new product is lined with a vasodilating gel, which increases blood flow to the penis and helps maintain erection. But unlike the pill, it’s not designed for men who have erectile dysfunction; rather, it’s meant for men who have trouble keeping erections specifically while using a condom.
Africa could become a huge market with the circumcision juggernaut steamrolling men by inducing circumcision envy and foreskin panic. If a circumcision doesn’t kill African men’s erections, the truth that they still have to wear condoms will. No worries. The NGOs now have a solution. No wonder fighting AIDS is so expensive.
