I have just learned that original reports on Dingo's well being were inaccurate. When the condom he was wearing at the time exploded, he suffered damage to his urethral sphincter. This required casting of the area. A spray on plaster cast was applied, to demobilize the penis. While convalescing at his home in San Clemente an idea was born, he thought why not a spray on condom? Dingo said the product is aimed to help people enjoy better and safer sex lives.
"We're trying to develop the perfect condom for men that's suited to every size of penis," he said. "We're very serious."
Dingo's team (spray-it on-dude) is developing a type of spray can into which the man inserts his penis first. At the push of a button it is then coated in a rubber condom.
"It works by spraying on latex from nozzles on all sides," he said. "We call it the '360 degree procedure' -- once round and from top to bottom. It's a bit like a car wash."
Dingo said the plan is to make the product ready for use in about five seconds. He said it would function more effectively as a contraceptive because it would fit better and not slip.
However, before the new condom can be sold in shops, the firm must ensure that the latex is evenly spread when sprayed, as well as optimize the vulcanization process.
Dingo hopes the high tech condom, which will be available in different strengths and colors, will on the market by 2008.
He said the spray can would likely cost some $20 as a one-off purchase. The latex cartridges -- sufficient for up to 20 applications -- would cost roughly $10, he said.
Dingo said he had hit upon the idea when considering the difficulties some people faced using condoms, and drew inspiration from spray-on plaster cast he is now wearing.
