Have you ever heard of P'sang before?

The idea of the local condom brand was birthed a few years ago, when its founders came together, wanting to introduce to introduce something fresh and innovative to the local condom market.

They worked tirelessly with the world's best condom manufacturer for 18 months before coming up with P'sang, designed to be the most comfortable condom brand for young adults in Southeast Asia. Since then, they have come up with products such as P'sang Ori, P'sang 1+1+1, P'sang Asian Fit, P'sang Zer0, and more!

Recently, P'sang has also been visiting institutions like Taylor's College and UOW Malaysia KDU University College, to teach young adults the proper way to wear condoms during sexual intercourse

With events conducted in collaboration with Rexagon and supported by Malaysia AIDS Council (MAC) and Jejaka Malaysia, the local condom brand hopes that more young adults will understand the importance of wearing condoms correctly to effectively prevent the transmission of HIV.

According to a 2019 study from the Malaysian Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities (MJSSH), 49% of sexually active students were unaware that condoms can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Plus, a study from the Malaysian Journal of Pharmacy revealed that only 8.5% of university student respondents have adequate knowledge of contraception methods.

These statistics just go to show that early sexual education for Malaysian youths before they become sexually active is necessary, so they can make informed choices about their sexual health.

In fact, some of the findings during these events were that many youths did not know how to wear a condom, or were wearing it wrong the entire time

According to P'sang, the biggest problem with condoms is that it's hard to determine which side is the correct way up when first opened, especially in the dark.  

Thankfully, they have come up with an ingenious way around this — using buttercup packaging to replace the traditional tin foil! This simple design makes it so much easier to peel the condom out with just one hand, so you can get straight into the action. ;)

The innovative buttercup design also allows the condom to always be right side up, so you'll never wear it on the wrong side again!  

Available in either 3-pack or 12-pack boxes, you can also say goodbye to that awful rubber smell that condoms usually have, as some variants come with pleasant scents such as banana and strawberry.

You can also rest assured that P'sang's condoms have undergone strict quality inspection, including 100% electronic testing, water leakage tests, and tests for bursting

Made with the industry's highest ISO 4074:2015 production specifications and with high-cost natural latex materials, this new generation of condoms may just be what you've been looking for.

What's also great is once you've ordered them from P'sang's website, your purchases will be shipped out in discreet plain packaging, allowing you to purchase with confidence while maintaining your privacy. <3
