A Chinese company recently took the Guinness World Records for the world's thinnest latex condom. It comes in at 0.036 millimeters.
According to AFP, a press conference held this week in Hong Kong to announce that Guangzhou Daming United Rubber Products set this new world record. It was previously held by Japanese condom maker Okamoto with a 0.038mm latex condom, and it was a hard one to beat.
In comparison, the average human hair has a thickness of 0.06mm, and, for example, the Trojan Ultra Thin also measures around 0.06mm.
Late last year, another Japanese company, Sagami Rubber Industries, launched the world's thinnest polyurethane condoms, measuring a mere 0.01mm.
This is like a space race, but with thin rubber and erect penises.
