If you build a better condom, will men use it? And no, that's not a trick question. In one of those “Gee, I feel so lame not knowing about this already” stories, the other Times (the one in New York) reported this week that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded prizes of $100,000 each to 11 winners in its contest to create a condom that men actually might, you know, put on before having sex. (Ladies, insert your own joke/bad experience/harrumph here.) I'm glad to read some good news about condoms because they've getting a bad, well, rap here in L.A. recently -- being blamed for, among other things, chasing away the porn industry from our fair city.
