The Federal Government Wants To Make Sure Your Condom Fits Just Right

Print Friendly and PDF

The federal government is spending $224,863 to test custom-fitted condoms and validate a self-reporting penis measurement system for commercial use.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded the grant with funding through July of 2014 to TheyFit, LLC of Covington, Georgia for the project: “Behavioral and Manufacturing Science to Commercially Develop Fitted Condoms.”

“We also seek to improve upon traditional self-report mechanisms of penis measurement by validating the TheyFit measuring tool,” says the grant description on the NIH website. “This would address an important research question regarding validated measures and supply information on whether users have sufficient proficiency to accurately determine their custom condom size.”

According to the grant description, the project also seeks to “conduct laboratory condom testing to increase the evidence base for adopting new draft international standards that establish a model of burst test standards allowing a broader range of condom sizes to be tested.”

Attempts by CNSNews.com to contact the study’s principal investigator, Dr. Michael Cecil, for more details on the study went unreturned.

The National Institutes of Health tell CNSNews.com, “Only by developing effective prevention and treatment strategies for health-injuring behaviors can we reduce the disease burden in the U.S. and thus, enhance health and lengthen life, which is the mission of the NIH.”

“The latex condom is an effective technology to reduce unintended pregnancy and the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and this project seeks to eliminate perceived barriers to condom use.”

theyfittypicalchart2_0The “Public Health Relevance Statement” of the grant states, “Having an expanded range of condom sizes made available is a promising strategy in increasing condom usage, particularly in high-risk populations.”

TheyFit has been offering their custom fitted condoms in the European Union for several years. The company website offers a downloadable penis measuring “FitKit” and sells 95 sizes of condoms.

    Why not cut the balls off the liberals. At least the ones like Obama. Then give them to the women like Michele.

    The gub-a-mint SHOULD be doing a survey on this since they may be using these condoms on us as soon as we start seeing the tax burden of Obamacare and all o the other Marxist initiatives that the Commucrats have put on us.

    This is why LIBERAL IGNORNCE GROWS they buy voters wit OUR tax dollars and are being let do it. We(Americans) need to STOP this STUPIDITY. How you ask well first throw out any politician who won’t support a stop to all such INGORANT waste of OUR money in all ways. Also throw out those who do not support certain budget changes like NO money to anything at a rate higher than that of inflation or the rate allowed to bills for Social Security and Military retiree pay increases of the coming year. That means NO large COLA for Benefit persons, NO big raises in spending on any program. Also no raises for Congress or even a paycheck unless they pass the budget bills cleanly and on time. That means no budget bill where everything is all lumped together like they normally pass these days. I mean how hard can it be to pass a bill on Military Spending without throwing on such things as welfare items??? I know DC works on trades but that should not be how they get all things done. Trade offs on some things might be OK but not on the IMPORTANT things. Next we need people in DC who won’t compromise on everything as a way to get things done. Congress did very little in 2013 law wise and that is a GREAT thing not a bad one as some MORONS think. Congress should be working little and be paid not on how much time they waste in DC but on how little time they spend there and how little work they do based on their DC job which should be only part, part time if that much. A temp Congress was what OUR founding Fathers wanted and they wee right about it being the BEST for America. Sadly that has become a LIE that Dems use to get their way now days. They LIE about how their work is needed when in FACT it is NOT NEEDED and they are needed even less than the work they do. Americans need to take back theirNation in the 2014 election by throwing out Dems and RINOS and return America to the Nation that America’s founding Fathers envisioned not the GARBAGE Nation Dems have created with their CONSTANT LIES and doing America dirty for their own pockets. Dems have DESTROYED America and Obammy has done most of it in his time infesting the White House than the Dem party has since it started trying to wipe out America at it’s founding.

    Who but the wicked antichrist would ever think of such a thing. These people’s minds are saturated with the thoughts of “SEX!” Involved is: baby murder, homosexuality legalizing, condoms. What next? Make them in all colors and shades, including printed with animals, flowers, the one you are using them with? There is no end end of evil these days connected with sex and Satan. That is what America has sent to DC to rule over us!!!

    • Cross Crafter

      God bless you Myrtle. I have been saying for years against these erectyle disfunction commercials that perhaps you have the the disfunction for a reason. STOP thinking of nothing but sex. Next thing will be pedophilia legalization.

    If you read the story carefully, they also want to determine if you have sufficient proficiency to accurately determine your custom condom size. They want to make sure you can measure your ‘winky’ correctly. A 1/4 of a million dollars for this ? I would not spend my money on such a stupid thing…..Oh, wait, that is my money !! I would think that someone in this ‘study’ would know that most little boys start measuring their winkies very early in life and I am sure as adults they could proficiently handle that task, if they wanted. Has the government looked into the Husky garbage back people, I am sure they could tell them how to make one that would never break. Sweat Nancy says there is not further place to cut spending in government………………..hhmmmmm, this makes me wonder if she is telling the truth (?),,,,,it would be funny as hell if this were not my current government and this country was not is such bad financial shape.

  • apen
