A force-sensitive sound-playing condom comprising: a condom body
(10) having a distal end and a proximal end, and a miniature
force-sensitive sound-playing unit (14) attached to the condom at its
proximal end. The proximal end of the condom is made in the form of
a semirigid rim (12) having a lower part with an opening (16)
coinciding with the cavity of the condom, and an upper part extending
radially upwardly from the body of the condom and supporting the
sound-playing unit (14). The latter contains a chip-controlled
piezoelectric sound transducer which plays a melody or voiced
message when during intercouse the contacts (28 and 30) of the
sound-playing unit (14) are closed and the transducer is activated.
