Bill Gates Campaigning For a Better Condom?
The man is never stopping. But who would have thought he would have gone from building the best computer in the world to world's best condom.
Yup, Bill Gates has pledged that is going to reinvent the condom. A better baby blocker than the one you currently use (suddenly, every man in the world's attention is grabbed).
Interesting you say. You ask: How so?
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is offering a $100,000 grant to anyone who can develop this next best condom. The foundation's latest goal is global health issues, and they want a condom that significantly preserves or enhances pleasure, in order to "improve uptake and regular use".
I do have to say the reasoning behind this is great, obviously. Imagine the 34 million people in the world are living with HIV and about half of them don't know they're infected. The foundation is said to want "something that will lead men and women outside of a committed relationship to stop and think twice before having unprotected sex".
And they want it done fast. If anyone could accomplish this...oddly enough, it's Bill Gates.
