Charlie Sheen is the new face of a fundraising campaign for a re-engineered condom.
The 50-year-old actor , who is HIV-positive, is backing a new condom called Lelo Hex in an effort to promote safe sex.
In a video for the campaign he said: "I think people associate the word condom with less pleasure. With less connection, you know?
He added: "I don't know why it hasn't happened, but the condom has not changed for 70 years until right now."
The Lelo Hex focuses on changing the structure of the latex, using hexagons in order to prevent breakage, reduce slippage and eliminate discomfort.
The campaign currently has 10 per cent of the 10,000 backers it needs.
On safe sex, the former Two and a Half Men star said: "It's a dialogue that people don't want to have, it's uncomfortable, it's awkward.
Sheen said it was his aim to turn something "so completely negative and life destructive" into positive change.
On life after his diagnosis, the star said: "Things that are most different, things I address health-wise, things not only can't I do any more but I choose not to, so there's great change there."
He added: "There's an odd combination now, people still want to be like me and want to experience my life but there's a little detail that they want no part of so they can avoid that by using this."
