EU recommendation for erection-enhancing Durex condoms

A range of Durex condoms promising to give men a firmer, larger and longer-lasting erection has been granted European Union (EU) backing.

Futura Medical has revealed its CSD500 condom - which will sell under the Durex name - had been recommended for European approval.

The prophylactic features a tip-based gel that, as proven in 2008 studies, serves to increase blood flow to the penis and to dilate arteries.

A CE mark approval would mean the product can be purchased in 29 European territories, as well as numerous other countries not positioned in the continent.

Futura Medical said that once an item receives such a recommendation, it is normally around four weeks before the full certification is granted.

One region the CSD500 could prove popular is eastern Europe, as recent figures from the National Statistics Office of Georgia revealed import of condoms in Georgia have been increasing every year, the Financial reported.
