Durex delivers cybersex to the masses

Durex Australia has launched a campaign for what it calls the ‘future of foreplay’ with the company to release what it call ‘fundawear’ or fun underwear.

The campaign, created by Havas Worldwide Australia, is designed around the idea of allowing ‘touch to be transferred on the internet’.

A Youtube video of Australian couple “Nick and Dani” using the underwear has already garnered 70,000 views in just two days.

The campaign from the leading condom manufacturer Durex is built around the idea of ‘connecting when you’re apart’ and allows couples to use a mobile app to activate sensors on the underwear which simulate human touch.

Britain’s Daily Telegraph quotes Ben Moir, technical director of the project, who said: “After the laughter had stopped, we knew it was going to be an awesome project.”

“People will want this,” he added.

Durex is offering the chance for people to get their own ‘fundawear’ through its Facebook page.

  2. Well, I suppose this is the ultimate in both contraception and prophylactics, from the company which has been providing both for decades.

    If they carry on like this, brothels as we know them …… or as I have been told by those who claim to know them and I have no reason to doubt them :o)……. will be out of business in no time.
