Breathable Condom   (+2, -5)  [vote for, against]
Similar marketing, similar untruths.

A lot of raincoat manufacturers out there tout ‘breathable’ materials that are allegedly waterproof as well. They seem mutually exclusive to me, both through logic and through experimentation.

I propose the breathable condom – constructed from any one of the dubious wonder-fabrics in question. Those dastardly raincoat manufacturers can put their money where their mouths are.

For her, if you can't find a scuba condom. [Cedar Park, Oct 15 2005]

Why not just a mesh condom?

The ultimate in comfort!
-- Cedar Park, Oct 14 2005

If I use these, does it mean I can give up my search for the woman who can breathe through her ears?
-- Ling, Oct 14 2005

Well if there is, I haven't found her yet.
-- Ling, Oct 14 2005

Texticle,you win the 2005 father of the birth-control breakthrough award.

I just made that up.

The "breathable" promise refers to water vapor being able to pass through the very small pores in the membrane, not to a liquid. (It's not the fact that something is sweat that makes it pass through, it's that it's evaporating.) If you are suffering from too much water vapour in your condom, you should seriously consider upgrading your equipment from the steam-powered model to a more environmentally sound electrical or hybrid.

No point in working up a sweat over all this.

Not yet honey. Just let it breathe.

You know, I think it might actually work. Not sure if you really need it, but I think it might work.

It may go some way to prevent suffocation due to misplaced condoms clinging to the face.

Oh, now this is an idea. Now EVERYTHING can be sticky!

Isn't Gore-Tex(tm) excessively friction-prone? Cloth on the outside or in? I guess it depends on what your inclinations are...

What were you doing when this popped into your head [Texticle]?
-- wagster, Oct 17 2005

do we need to know?

there should be some way of alerting an ambulance...
-- po, Oct 17 2005

Funnily enough I was thrashing about, gasping for air as a mislaid condom clung to my face.

I'm living one day at a time now.
-- Texticle, Oct 18 2005

So that's what I've been doing wrong.
