Boldly stating that their new product is the "future of foreplay", Durex Australia claim that 'Fundawear' allows for "touch to be transferred over the internet."
Deploying technology normally used to make a mobile phone vibrate, actuators wired into the under garments are remotely stimulated via a smartphone app, according to videos uploaded to Durex Australia's YouTube channel.
Apparently part of the condom manafacturers drive to improve what they describe as "the ultimate pleasure", the hi-tech underwear is claimed to be the latest offering from the company's 'durexperiment' team.
Aimed at allowing those in long distance relationships to "tease, tickle and tantalise even when apart", Durex's Australian branch posted footage of young couple Nick and Dani trialling the sensorious smalls on YouTube.
According to the dedicated Fundawear Facebook page, other similarly unabashed couples can still sign up to get involved in the testing stage.
Speaking about the innovative underwear, Ben Moir, technical director of the project, said: "After the laughter had stopped, we knew it was going to be an awesome project."
"People will want this," he added.
