Especially water-based lubricant, however, may be absorbed by the body, write the researchers in order to Mark Grinstaff of Boston University in the journal "Open Science".
The study surveyed 33 men and women to establish the effectiveness of the self-lubricating condom, whether it actually worked, and whether the testers thought they were a better alternative to what is already on the market.
