NIH Spends $400K To Figure Out Why Men Don’t Like Condoms

The National Institutes of Health has given 3,500 to researchers at Indiana University’s Kinsey Institute to figure out why men don’t like to wear condoms. The institute will also study why men have trouble using condoms and investigate “penile erection and sensitivity during condom application.” “The project aims to understand the relationship between condom application and loss of erections and decreased sensation, including the role of condom skills and performance anxiety, and to find new ways to improve condom use among those who experience such problems,” reads the abstract from Drs. Erick Janssen and Stephanie Sanders, both of the Kinsey Institute.
