Self-Repairing Rubber

Well the smallest inventions tend to have the most lasting impact. Self repairing gloves,rubber bands,tires. Actually been trying to think how much rubber do I actually come in contact with day to day,Probably less then I think but if this can be applied to other matierials should be pretty impressive.
If I was witty, I'm sure you'd be laughing by now.

Natural rubber is far more common that most people tend to think.

So the condom will self repair upon any breaks... This is OK if the spermicide works. 
My brain just gets stuck on the idea of an infinitely reuseable condom, thou. :x
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

According to studies spermicide increases transmission of STDs because it damages all cells, not just sperm.

Do what you want on your own time... but I don't think there are condoms that fit horses... I also don't think you have to worry too much about a condom for a horse, unless other people are also using him.

I'm sure it would be, but I don't want those sort of details!
