A G-string condom designed by medical students in Guangzhou is now going into mass production, thanks to a recent two million yuan investment from a venture capital firm based in Guangdong province.
The contraption, dubbed “The Guardian of Love”, was created by a team of six students—five women and one man—at Guangzhou’s Southern Medical University.
It functions as a strap-on base and uses a detachable condom that screws tightly into place. It was designed to better prevent pregnancy and STD transmission by reducing semen leakage and fluid exchange.
In November of last year, The Nanfang reported that the students had just registered a business and were applying for a patent for their creation. The team, which calls itself “Eastern Resurgence”, said that the condom uses a soluble lubricant flavored with Chinese herbs.
Here’s a rough sketch of the product:
1. The G-string. 2. The condom. 3. Vertical streaks. 4. Anti-slip micro-capsules. 5. Sack for the testicles 6. Elastic
The Guangdong Yuezheng Investment Management Ltd of Dongguan (har, har) was so confident in The Guardian’s potential that they invested two million big ones in the design and plan to produce a first batch of 10,000 condoms.
