STATES CHRONICLE – LELO, a manufacturer of luxury sex toys, released a new product after seven years in development – the LELO HEX condom.
LELO firmly believes that current-day condoms are outdated and feel like a sore subject of conversation. Surveys reveal that the rates of which people are using condoms are declining. Currently, in the United States, 75 percent of all acts of intercourse are unprotected in any way.
In order to promote their new product, LELO is also starting a campaign which will span over the following two months. It is called “HEX Appeal” and it will allow its backers to order and receive the LELO HEX condoms before any other clients.
Also, for the duration of the HEX Appeal campaign, anyone can order a LELO Hex 12-pack for $12. Once the campaign ends, the definitive price of the LELO HEX 12-pack with be $19.90.
“We did this because people need to be having great, safe sex today, not ten years from now.” – Filip Sedic, LELO Founder and inventor of LELO HEX.
The end product of a seven-year-long development cycle, a LELO HEX condom, is composed of a thin and resilient internal hexagonal web. The web sums up 350 individuals latex hexagons and became the namesake of the condoms.
The condoms’ design is inspired by Graphene (a resistant and modern material, also known for its hexagonal molecules), and is meant to be “strong, symmetrical, and tessellate perfectly.” On numerous accounts, the hexagon was demonstrated one of nature’s most light-but-strong shapes.
The hexagonal web was designed to be applied internally to the condom because it intends to grip to the wearer and prevent internal friction or slipping.
The interior web is also meant to mold tightly to the wearer, enhancing overall sensitivity and giving a more natural feeling than standard condoms regularly do.
The separate hexagonal chambers will keep any damage localized. Pressure or tension created by damage taken within the surface of one hexagon will, by geometrical design, be uniformly split to the hexagon’s tips. For the LELO HEX condoms, this translates into an exponentially decreased chance of tearing or ripping.
The LELO HEX condom line is currently promoted by Charlie Sheen, who in 2015 announced he was HIV positive. Sheen has since then been an advocate for sexual health.
