Scroguard Condom Covers Your Whole Pelvis For Reasons We Can't Quite Fathom

A couple of weeks ago this would have seemed like the creation of an insanely paranoid clean-freak, but in light of the continuing Ebola outbreak, maybe they're on to something...

No wait, scrub that, this is ridiculous.

The catchily-titled 'Scroguard' is for those men who think a regular condom is simply not enough and demand full-pelvic protection from the object of your passions.


Which begs the question why are you sleeping with someone whose nether-regions you have such little faith in?

  • Casual sex partners and committed couples who want peace of mind.

  • Men with a high sex drive who enjoy sexual variety.

  • Couples and individuals who love to swing.
