The sex tech industry is trying to sell products that help people have safer sex, and we're here for it.

A company called Lorals just got the FDA's approval to sell latex underwear that it claims protects against STDs. According to The New York Times, the product creates a seal on the inside of the thigh using stretchy material.

According to Lorals, the panties have one big advantage over other safer sex alternatives: they protect against bodily fluid transfer with more visual and sensory appeal than condoms or dental dams.

Lorals says their undies increase, not decrease, their sensation to the vagina.

Lorals are made to help anyone and everyone say yes to maximizing pleasure.

There is something that is a little off. Lorals had to submit research and proof of efficiency to the government along with their approval application, like condoms, which the FDA considers to be Class II medical devices. The FDA did not do any human trials of their own and relied on Loral's data.

There are real risks associated with these products. Sexperts aren't particularly fond of condoms that can cause skin irritation and give you infections.

There are going to be pain points with any sexual wellbeing product, because every person is different, not exactly the kind of argument you would find on the company.

That doesn't mean underwear aren't cool. Imagine being able to provide oral sex to your partner after years of not being able due to cancer, as one source told the NYT.

The more choices people have the less likely they are to get an STD.

We shouldn't have to rely on marketing copy from a startup alone. The FDA should make sure the undies are safe to use and effective for everyone.
