Introducing the GALACTIC CAP

So this guy came up with a way to have more enjoyable sex. However if you watch the video you'll see this really only designed to prevent pregnancy.

Oh and read the comments funny as hell....most uninformed people on earth.

I saw this a couple days ago.  The animated application was cute but still a bit concerning. The thought of something 'glued' or otherwise adhered to a 'sensitive' area of my body......well.........you get the picture.  It's right up there with the zipper scene in "There's Something About Mary". I don't think they have a shrapnel friendly version for the PA contingency, either.

You have to wonder what type of glue would hold it on for days and the chemical solution required to remove it.  Not a pleasant thought.  It could work, if it has that glue, you get on those picture hangers, that you can pull off to remove the hanger.  Better living through chemistry.

You HAVE seen or used those picture hangers??

I have yet to get one to work correctly.  You're either tugging away on that small thing and stretching it out so far that it snaps **OR** you wind up ripping a piece of the paint on the wall right off.  Either way - not something I would want to go to the emergency room with.  "Excuse me - can you (a) get this off?  or (b) re-attach this?"

I know they are crap, I was just suggesting a similar approach, with glue that actually works, for these caps.  I don't care how they design them, the thought of glue + penis head is just plain wrong.

What about those of us who have a powerful shot?  Will it stay on, or be lost to never been seen again?   ;)

I like the idea and hope he gets funding.  We know many guys who would use this, who wouldn't use a regular condom-- if it worked well.  So, good for him.  Well, unless that adhesive removed sensitive skin, even if you couldn't tell it was removing it at the time.  It would seem repetitive use could make the tip lose sensitivity.  But, who knows.  Guess that's what's the testing is for.  If true (no reason to doubt) that he got this idea after a friend contracted HIV, then I applaud him for trying to do something, even if it fails.

OhEmGee! We had a WW a few years ago (think it was in the FuseTalk days) who kept asking us about a DIY thing like this. He hated condoms and wanted to know if he cut the tip off one and super-glued it to the head of his dick, if it would prevent him getting infected. I kid you not.

Wonder if it's the same guy?

what happens if you have to take a leak?

this glue, is there some sort of solvent to release it, or do you just rip it off like a bandaid? (i'm thinking i'd be real careful of the shorthairs here)

 ::) hmmmummmm.. yeah well, out with it, i'm uncircumcised, there, now yall know. exactly what part of the happy turtle are they wanting me to glue this thing to?

glue?! seriously? somebody is gonna get some glue down in the shaft and its gonna cause some real problems

i think i'll pass

Damn!! I lost the bet!!  But thank's for the clarification.

Apparently, this glue is/was already FDA approved for 'something'. Just the term "glue" infers some type of permanancy.  In everything that I've seen on this it gives details on how you apply it, how the system works, how you remove the 'cap' - but nowhere does it mention ANYTHING about the glue and how this is supposed to exist without being inundated with lint, hair and whatever else and then (most importantly) how you get rid of this glue cap once your DONE!

What happens when you need to take a piss break after a couple of hours?  Just seems like so much work.

I saw it on Huffington Post filed under 'Weird Things for Down There' a few months back. Now it's everywhere and selling. I guess if you can make something different for your parts, someone will buy it!

I would wonder how this thing compensates for expansion and retraction once glued. I suppose timing is everything.
