Assessing the perceived benefits of a new condom wrapper/integrated applicator: an exploratory study.

Abstract:

:Errors and problems associated with male condom use are very prevalent and increase the likelihood of inconsistent and incomplete use, thereby compromising condom effectiveness. The aim of this study was to assess the perceived benefits of a new condom wrapper/integrated applicator designed to reduce barriers to condom use and lessen the likelihood of user errors and problems. After viewing videos depicting features of the wrapper/applicator, participants (N = 547; 62.9% male, M age = 29.2) completed online questionnaires. Most participants reported that the product would make condom application easier and quicker, make them more confident that condoms had been applied correctly and make sex more pleasurable and playful. The majority of participants who had recent experience of condom use errors/problems reported that the use of the product would likely prevent these issues from occurring. Reduced chance of condom damage, the design features of the wrapper and not having to touch the condom itself during application were perceived as particular benefits of the product. The findings suggest that the product might reduce the likelihood of a range of condom user errors and problems and enhance pleasure during condom-protected sex. Future larger-scale studies that involve participants physically testing the condom wrapper/applicator are warranted.
