This article might not have much to do with bareback porn or bareback sex, but when I read about a new type of condom being developed, I figured that some safer sex porn studios might want to use such a condom to make their videos appear bareback. An inventor based in southern California has designed a revolutionary condom called Galactic Cap that fits on the glans of the penis, leaving the coronal ridge and shaft exposed to help men enjoy more pleasure while trying to practice safer sex.
It’s important to point out that this invention is still in its early stages of development and needs to pass FDA approval before it can be introduced into the market for consumers to use. At the moment the product is seeking investors so it can be tested and a case put forward to the FDA to seek approval for use as a sexual health device. I’m sure this invention will generate loads of interest and discussion, since it’s such a dramatic change to the regular condom design.
The Galactic Cap consists of two parts, a base which sticks to the glans of the penis through a u-shaped polyurethane adhesive film and a cap which sticks to the base. The adhesive base can be applied to the penis several days before sex and the adhesive film still allows guys to shower, urinate and enjoy normal bodily functions while attached. When a guy intends to have sex, he simply attaches the cap, with a reservoir that’s reported to be stronger than a regular condom to catch the semen at the time of ejaculation.
We may see interest from the condom studios who will want to make their scenes appear bareback by using such a product as the Galactic Cap to satisfy the demand from viewers who enjoy watching bareback porn. This type of condom may help to make scenes appear bareback, but the scenes won’t be bareback because the guys using these devices will still be wearing a condom and this device will prevent guys from breeding their loads inside other guys. This device could potentially be a explored by studios if the product is approved for use, but I believe that it’s important for studios to ensure they are upfront about the use of such a device so they don’t mislead viewers who think they are actually watching bareback porn.
The Galactic Cap appears to focus on some key areas, such as preventing pregnancy, which obviously is not an issue for men having sex with men and for preventing the exchange of bodily fluids, which is aimed at reducing the transmission of HIV. If this product is approved, users will need to be aware it will not stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections that can spread through skin-on-skin contact, such as genital herpes. I also wonder about the level of sensation by using this device, because most of the head of the penis is still covered by the adhesive film base and the cap, which may feel thicker than a standard condom, plus the feeling of the film may impede on the sensation. I also wonder how easily the adhesive film can be removed from the glans of the penis comfortably and without causing irritation or damage to the skin.
Once the trials commence, more information relating to the pros and cons can be revealed. I might try the device to see how it feels for research purposes, but I wouldn’t plan on using this device on a regular basis, as breeding is something I enjoy during bareback sex. This device may be useful to guys who want to maximize their pleasure whilst trying to have safer sex, so there might be a use for this type of condom, but those using it need to know that it will not protect from every sexually transmitted infection. It will be interesting to follow the progress of this development and if this condom does receive approval, how well it’s received. I encourage your thoughts on the Galactic Cap condom below to see what you think.
