New eco-friendly condom hits shop shelves

Being green is important these days, regardless of whether it's in or out of the bedroom - and now anyone keen on having some fun between the sheets while doing their bit for the environment can, thanks to the Envy Ultra Thin Condom.

Introduced by US-based biotech company Vystar Corporation, this latest development in the prophylactics market is apparently made using fewer pigments, dyes and perfume additives, the Independent reports.

However, eco-friendliness aside, there are other added benefits, such as being increasingly safe to use for anyone with allergies to natural rubber latex.

Those who previously relied on lambskin condoms or synthetic contraceptives made from polyisophrene are sure to be glad there's another product on shop shelves. Hooray!

Of course, they won't be able to take advantage of the Mega Big Boy, manufactured by Japanese organisation Okamoto and featured in an article, but at 1.8 inches in diameter, it's not likely that many men out there will have a serious interest in such a product.
