ORIGAMI Condoms Founder Danny Resnic Explains His Quest To Reinvent The Condom

Danny Resnic is on a mission to create the "next generation condom."

The founder of ORIGAMI Condoms joined HuffPost Live's Nancy Redd on Wednesday to describe his quest for a better condom, for which he won a prize from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

"In 1993, I experienced a broken condom and wound up with an HIV diagnosis, and it occurred to me that the condom hadn't changed in almost 100 years, and we've been dealing with an old, rolled condom," Resnic said. "It's way overdue for a change."

Resnic said that because "condoms were designed for protection but they were never really designed for pleasure," he wanted to invent something that works seamlessly with the natural mechanics of sex.

"We've changed the way condoms work. We've changed the mechanical aspect of it, and it is an active condom. It moves with the body's motion and creates sensation on the inside of the condom instead of trying to transfer sensation from the outside," Resnic explained.
