2 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in rubber goods, and more particularly to a mechanical prophylactic or contraceptive device.

An object of this invention is to provide a mechanical prophylactic which is reinforced in the area contiguous to the end to be inserted into a body opening to prevent breaking in said area, and thereby afford greater protection against disease and achieve a higher degree of effectiveness as a preventative.

Another object of this invention is to provide a mechanical prophylactic adapted to be engaged about an injured extremity having highly sensitive nerve centers, which is provided with novel means to effectively cushion said injured extremity from contact with and further irritation by foreign objects.

A further object of this invention is to provide a mechanical prophylactic which is provided with novel means in the area contiguous to the end to be inserted into a body opening, which efiectively cushions the nerve centers in the male organ to thereby materially increase the period of copulation by the male prior to a spermatic emission.

A still further object of this invention is to provide a mechanical prophylactic which is relatively simple in structure and cheap to manufacture.

The above and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent upon a consideration of the following detailed description of the invention, when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a top plan view of the mechanical prophylactic of the present invention;

Figure 2 is a side elevational view, with parts broken away, of the mechanical prophylactic of the present invention;

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of the mechanical prophylactic shown in Figures 1 and 2;

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken substantially on the line 4-4 of Figure 2; and

Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view showing the detailed structure of the me chanical prophylactic of the prevent invention.

Referring now more particularly to the drawings, wherein like reference numerals have been used throughout the several views to designate like parts, there is shown the mechanical prophylactic of the present invention, generally designated by the reference numeral I0, which comprises an elongated sheath I l fabricated of a relatively thin rubber-containing material and having one end closed and shaped into an enlargedhead, designated by the reference numeral l2, and having the other end open and designated by the reference numeral l3.

Circumposed about the head l2 of the sheath II is a cap M which is fabricated of a relatively B. Mitchell,

thin rubber-containing material, and has its open end 15 secured exteriorly of the sheath H at a point adjacent to and spaced from the open end l3 of the sheath l I. The cap [4 is equally spaced from the walls of the head !2 of the sheath l I and cooperates with the latter to form a closed chamber I 6.

Interposed between the sheath H and the cap 14 and supported therebetween is a cushioning means I! which substantially fills the chamber l6 and comprises a filler fabricated of a uniform thickness of a sponge-like, rubber-containing material.

Although only one embodiment of the mechanical prophylactic of the present invention has been described, it is readily apparent that numerous modifications can be made without departing from the spirit of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.

What I claim is:

1. A mechanical prophylactic comprising an elongated sheath fabricated of a rubber-contaim ing material and having one end open, a cap fabricated of a rubber-containing material ciroumposed about said sheath and having its open end secured about said sheath at a point adjacent to and spaced from the open end of the latter, and cushioning means interposed between said sheath and cap and supported therebetween, said cushioning means comprising a filler fabricated of a uniform thickness of a sponge-like rubber-containing material.

2. A mechanical prophylactic comprising an elongated sheath fabricated of a relatively thin rubber-containing material and having one end closed and shaped into an enlarged head and having the other end open, a cap fabricated of a relatively thin rubber-containing material circumposed about the head of said sheath and having its open end secured at a point adjacent to and spaced from the open end of said sheath, said cap being equally spaced from said head and cooperating with the latter to form a closed chamber, and cushioning means filling said chamber and secured therein, said cushioning means comprising a filler fabricated of a uniform thickness of a sponge-like rubber-containing material.
