The rubber, the cock sock, the goalie, the love glove, the salami sling. No matter how many adorable monikers it gets, no one really likes a condom very much.

But that all might be about to change, at least for dudes. Durex has a new condom out that promises to enhance erections with a gel inside the tip that contains Zanifil. The over-the-counter drug boosts blood flow in the penis, which leads to firmer, larger, and longer-lasting erections for men who might find that condoms dampen their enthusiasm for doing the deed.

Zanifil is frighteningly based on the chemical nitroglycerin, which relaxes the muscles in blood-vessel walls, therby increasing blood flow—which actually makes sense because that's how it helps people not have heart attacks. Zanifil also employs a delivery system that allows medicine to permeate the skin quickly.

And there's something to look forward to! Futura, the company that makes Zanifil, is also making a topical spray that helps delay ejaculation, which should be available in the United States next year. It's all around good news today for penises.
