Move over, Viagra -- A new erection-enhancing condom developed for Durex could boost performance in the bedroom.
Researchers at a biotech firm in the United Kingdom developed the condom, which contains a gel to increase blood flow -- helping men maintain a firmer erection for longer.

CBS News reporter David Freeman writes some are calling CSD500 the Viagra of condoms -- posing a potential threat to sales of other condoms on the market. But Freeman focused more on the possible health effects than the sales impact.
“Dr. Irwin Goldstein told CBS News...they will have to be proven to be safe and effective compared to oral PDE 5 inhibitors, a reference to Viagra and similar medications for erectile dysfunction. And it would be important to make sure that the drug does not pass from the condom to the woman."
The Wall Street Journal is one step ahead of CBS--reporting the condom developers found a way for the drug-infused lubricant to only affect the condom wearer. And that’s not the only aspect of this condom Katherine Hobson set straight.
“The product has been compared to Pfizer’s Viagra in condom form; that’s not exactly accurate, since it’s intended not for men with erectile dysfunction in general, but those who specifically have difficulties keeping an erection when using a condom.”
But Portfolio**** didn’t waste time talking to doctors or medical experts... its blogger went straight to THE expert, condum guro Adam Glickman of CONDOMania. Glickman discussed what he says would be the real triumph of CSD500 -- getting more people to use condoms.

“The bottom line is protection, said Glickman...Such an innovation as the one under consideration could only help in that quest. At the end of the day, I am not how much that ‘drug’ will actually enhance sexual performance...What's important is that it is one more step in the process to 'normalize' condoms.”
If approved by European regulators, CSD500 will hit shelves at the end of the year.
As of now there is no official report on whether the new condom will come to the United States.
