The FDA noted that they will also “help reduce the risk of pregnancy and the transmission of STIs during vaginal intercourse.”

“Before today’s authorization, the FDA had not cleared or approved condoms specifically indicated for anal intercourse,” the agency said.

“While today’s authorization underscores the public health importance of condoms tested and labeled specifically for anal intercourse, all other FDA-cleared condoms can continue to be used for contraception and STI prevention,” the FDA added.

The risk of transmitting an STI during anal sex is higher than during vaginal intercourse, according to experts.

One Male Condom will come in standard, thin and fitted.

It failure rate for anal intercourse was just 0.68 percent, studies show.

Davin Wedel, president and founder of Global Protection Corp, owner of the ONE and myONE Condom brands, said it was a “landmark shift.”

He added: “This landmark shift demonstrates that when researchers, advocates, and companies come together, we can create a lasting impact in public health efforts.

“I think most people would be surprised to know that condoms are not approved for anal sex.

“With this new designation from the FDA, people will have more confidence using condoms for anal sex.”

Dr. Aaron Siegler at Emory University led research into the condom.

He said: “There have been over 300 condoms approved for use with vaginal sex data, and never before has a condom been approved based on anal sex data.

“This is despite two-thirds of HIV transmission in the United States being linked to anal sex.

“Having condoms tested and approved for anal sex will allow users to have confidence in using condoms to prevent HIV transmission.”

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
