The Anti-Rape condom

As if that femdefence thing didn't make male readers cringe enough, here comes a woman who actually invented an Anti-Rape condom that is even more cringe worthy. "Nothing has ever been done to help a woman so that she does not get raped and I thought it was high time," Sonette Ehlers, 57, said of the "rapex", a device worn like a tampon that has sparked controversy in a country used to daily reports of violent crime. [...] Ehlers said the "rapex" hooks onto the rapist's skin, allowing the victim time to escape and helping to identify perpetrators. "He will obviously be too pre-occupied at this stage," she told reporters in Kleinmond, a small holiday village about 100km (60 miles) east of Cape Town. "I promise you he is going to be too sore. He will go straight to hospital." The device, made of latex and held firm by shafts of sharp barbs, can only be removed from the man through surgery which will alert hospital staff, and ultimately, the police, she said. Ouchies.

You ARE the best!
Get a franchise. Plenty of women around my block would happily use one as a countermeasure to their husbands viagrakicks.

Hmm.. but, in order for it to work, doesn't the woman need to be "penetrated" first? And, well, hasn't she already been raped at that point?

I think it is more like a rape revenge device, rather than a preventative :p

I pity the husband of the wife that forgets she's wearing it.. OUCH!!!

How about men just stop raping women? Gee. What a concept.

Steve in Boston:

You find something wrong with rape revenge?

Brenda: Yes, in a perfect world...

Chimera: My God, NO, I do not find anything wrong with rape revenge, in fact, I think adding deadly poison to the barbs would be an improvement, or better yet, instead of barbs, make it a mini-guillotine.

I was just pointing out that the name "Anti-Rape Condom" was not correct... sheesh :)

Steve: LOL. But "anti-rape" sounds so much more politically correct -- making it much more socially acceptable -- than "rape revenge," which sounds like entrapment. (Which it might be, but we're not going to tell "them" that...right?)

I'll call it whatever it takes to get it on the market -- soon!

My first thought was "Great, this could really work!

Then I thought about how a woman could frame ya for rape. Maybe a jealous one that thought ya cheated on her. Or just tsome psycho that hates men. . . .sorta like the AIDS dudes that intentionally spread the virus.

Now I'm really scared!

Chimera: It stinks that everything has to be "PC" these days.. I prefer the old days, tell it like it is, and deal with it if your "feelings" get hurt.

TheWiz: Yep, Thank God I'm married to the greatest woman in the world :) I'd hate to be a single guy, on the dating scene with stuff like that about.. I guess a pre-sex inspection will soon be as common as those AIDS/HIV Free certificates I've been hearing about.. Very sad days we live in :(
