BelfastTelegraph: Charlie Sheen is the new face of a fundraising campaign for a re-engineered condom.
The actor, who is HIV-positive, is backing a new condom called Lelo Hex in an effort to promote safe sex.
In a video for the campaign he said: “I think people associate the word condom with less pleasure. With less connection, you know?
“What may feel like five seconds of an inconvenience or a halted or thwarted moment can absolutely prevent a lifetime of potential grief and suffering.”
He added: “I don’t know why it hasn’t happened, but the condom has not changed for 70 years until right now.”
The Lelo Hex focuses on changing the structure of the latex, using hexagons in order to prevent breakage, reduce slippage and eliminate discomfort.
The campaign currently has 10% of the 10,000 backers it needs. MORE
