theodp (442580) writes "GeekWire reports that the Gates Foundation needs your help to design the next-gen rubber to help prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancy. As part of the foundation’s Grand Challenges Explorations initiative, people who have ideas to improve the use and effectiveness of condoms are encouraged to apply for a research grant, ideally to create a condom 'that men would prefer to no condom.' Last July, Melinda Gates pledged $560 million for contraception initiatives to address the health and social problems brought on by high rates of unplanned pregnancy."
