Super-Thin 0.01 Millimetre Condom Sells Out on Japanese Launch

By Gary Cutlack on at

A new form of condom is tearing it up in Japan, where a rubber specialist is now sellingĀ 0.01 millimetre condoms. And 0.01 millimetres is the thickness of the rubber, not the length of it, before you start disrespecting the Japanese male population.

The new super-thin variety is constructed from polyurethane rather than latex, with the amazing thickness half that of the brand's previous best 0.02mm option -- and significantly thinner than the leading brands we use (if we are lucky) over here.

It's been such a smash in Japan that the initial run, sold in a few Tokyo shops, has sold out. [Kotaku]
