Designer Creates Condom Wrapper That Can Be Opened With One Hand
By Anthea Quay, 06 Sep 2012
To help sustain the ‘mood’ without the awkward fumbling with a wrapper, London-based designer Ben Pawle redesigned the condom packaging, so that users can open one at a click of their fingers.
Called the ‘One-Handed Condom Wrapper’, the foil packaging can be easily opened for the condom to be applied with the use of a single hand.
Pawle said in a statement that it was “designed to be easily opened, boosting feelings of confidence, allowing the individual to perform and sustain a mood with the awkward distraction of a difficult wrapper”.
Initially, the easy-open condom wrapper was not to make safe sex that little bit smoother, but for a healthcare care project ‘Preserving Human Dignity’, concerning Hemiplegia—a stroke of the womb with debilitating mental and physical effects.
The One-Handed Condom Wrapper aims to provide an inclusively designed intervention that reduces indignity, so that users would use a condom, and prevent potential Hemiplegia cases.
