The idea should work for both vaginal and anal sex. The proposed condoms would not be great for oral sex, but they would be a heck of a lot better than what we have now are.
The best the industry has come up with so far is the thinner Avanti polyurethane (plastic) condom. It is more impervious to oils and vaseline, but does not improve sensation all that much. The original version broke four times more frequently than the latex condom. It was replaced with a thicker version, that was stronger but more sensation-deadening.
You eventually have to yank the plug out to stop the ejaculation — too much of a Good Thing™. Sometimes it can be difficult to remove. The urethra can feel a little raw for a day or so afterward. Lord knows what it does to the poor ejaculatory muscles!
This is not quite as safe as a regular condom, but it protects the main entry point in the penis for HIV, and it prevents both precum and semen from escaping, thus protecting the person being screwed, either vaginally or anally. In the long run, at least for circumcised males, it would save more lives because people would find fewer excuses not to use it.
The balloon could be quite thick and strong making it safe for repeated, rough anal sex. The thickness does little to detract from sensations since only the very tip of the penis is inside it. It should not be too hard to arrange that any bending of the balloon would be reflected internally to specifically stimulate the tip.
You must be very careful when gluing the condom on that it completely covers the urethral opening. Perhaps the condom could have a centering guide that fits into the urethra to ensure it is completely covered.
IT may need small fins to help hold it in place.
It could have a short tube covering the very tip-end of the penis with a very thin flexible rounded plastic (about 1/2" in diameter, counting the tube) to avoid it getting pushed too far inside, and also to prevent the penis from being injured during the bulb-puncturing. The thin plastic tip would act as an extra stimulation point for the partner.
The real drawback is what side-effects it might have with repeated use. Doubtless less severe side-effects than repeated bareback sex, however!
I emailed the Lifestyles people. They said they were not interested. I snail mailed Durex, and the mail came back undeliverable since the address on Durex condoms is incomplete. I emailed the Durex people as well. The emailed me back that "Whilst we have looked at this type of contraceptive device in the past and rejected it, we are always looking to see how we can adapt technology for new products.". They did not elaborate on why they rejected the idea.
