October 29, (NaijaOnPoint Media) – A Malaysian gynaecologist, John Tang Ing Chinh, has invented what he says is the world’s first unisex condom.

Tang, who is a gynaecologist at medical supplies firm, Twin Catalyst, said the condom is made from a medical grade material usually used as a dressing for injuries and wounds.

He hopes the Wondaleaf Unisex Condom will empower people to take better control of their sexual health regardless of their sex or sexual orientation.

“It’s basically a regular condom with an adhesive covering. It’s a condom with an adhesive covering that attaches to the vagina or penis, as well as covering the adjacent area for extra protection.”

The adhesive is only applied to one side of the condom, he added, meaning it can be reversed and used by either sex.

Each box of Wondaleaf contains two condoms, and will cost 14.99 ringgit ($3.61 or about N1,500).

Tang makes the condoms using polyurethane, a material used in transparent wound dressings that is thin and flexible yet strong and waterproof.

“Once you put it on, you often don’t realise that it’s there”, he said, referring to dressings made from the material.

Tang said Wondaleaf has undergone several rounds of clinical research and testing and would be available commercially via the firm’s website this December.

“Based on the number of clinical trials we have conducted, I am quite optimistic that given time it will be a meaningful addition to the many contraceptive methods used in the prevention of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases,” Tang said.
