Pros Compatible with oil-based lubricants; greater protection is provided for the external genitalia of both partners; it can be cleaned and re-used up to 10 times without compromising its structural integrity
Cons The device was not enthusiastically adopted after its 1988 launch, given its high cost—$0.72—the skill required to properly deploy it and the rustling sound the material imparted while in use
