Strapping your pecker to an electric chair may not seem like the most ideal way to discover new heights of sexual pleasure, but a couple of researchers from Georgia Tech insist they will shock the world with this advancement in sex technology – it’s called the electric eel.

Answering to the call of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to create a new version of the condom, Fraz Peer and Andrew Quitmeyer have developed an electro-condom prototype designed to send mild electric signals through a man’s penis to make up for sensations typically lost by wearing the average, boring rubber.

Not only are these scientists hoping to have developed the next evolution of prophylactic, but they are trying to raise $10,000 on Indiegogo to see it to fruition… also launching a company that will work to develop more open-source sex tech of this kind.

“Our goal is to document and share designs for hacking existing devices as well as providing parts and kits for building new forms of sex toys. The mission of our work is to promote sexual empowerment through physical computing, education, and outreach,” according to the website.

No thanks -- we’ll take out chances with venereal disease.
