New Anti-Rape CondomPage 1 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
Now this I love. As a father of 3 girls, I'm really looking to see if this is something they can have access to as they date.

It's a condom for females, that is inserted like a tampon, only it has hooks in it that if a male attepts to penetrate, basically as soon as the head makes it past the hooks, they sink in deep & cause excruciating pain. Now, the male obviously will jerk out quickly and if he attempts to remove it himself, the hooks are designed to just sink deeper into the flesh. In the end, he has to go to the hospital to have it removed.

This anti-rape condom is called Rape-aXe and was designed by a doctor in South Africa to help combat rampant rape there. It's currently being distributed at the FIFA games and looking for world-wide distribution soon.

As a father, I love this thing. It means that if you mess with my girls there will be instantaneous consequences. As a man I love it because it means it will be incredibly easy to identify a rapist, both at the time of the crime and most likely forever after since it will end up deforming his member should he attempt to remove it himself. However, I did see a YouTube video about it that mentioned the down side.

Should a man be cheating on his wife and she discovered it, she could get even with one last offer of sex.

So, what is everyone's input on this? Good, bad, indifferent.

Edit: I'd add in a link to the news releases on it, but not sure that's allowed. If you google it you will find it though.

Since it's designed to be worn like a tampon I'd say it's probably designed to be worn 24/7. And you have to remember, it was designed by a female doc in Africa, where the potential for rape is massive. Not sure it's visible from the outside, probably not which means most guys won't know it exists until it's to late.

Not sure how she pulls it out, but he can only get it out by going to the doctor.

As far as the device being effective goes, yes it is traumatic for a woman to be raped, this won't reduce that trauma, but it will cause the rape to run a shorter time frame. Any guy who has ever accidentally zipped his member up in his pants while going commando can tell you, at the moment something begins to hurt the guy, he's done until it's resolved.

As far as the guy goes, there is one way to get it out, that is to go to the hospital and have it removed. Now, if a guy comes in with a Rape aXe condom on, bleeding and in excruciating pain the hospital should immediately recognize what it is and notify authorities. From there, the cops can then either have him admit he pissed off his wife/girlfriend or find the victim (who's probably called the cops if she's still alive) and thus have a conviction.

Beyond that, I do see this effective for another reason, consider it the scarlet letter of a rapist. This thing is going to leave scars, that means when you ladies see a guy with the scars who's trying to seduce you, you'll know what type of guy he really is. They say sex offenders are mentally sick and can't be cured, so instead when they commit I say we just mark 'em with this really great tool.

Also note, the article I've found in reference to this device states there is no risk of body fluid transfers. I find that hard to believe, at least 100%, I'd assume it carries with it the same risks as a condom.

And for those who state to raise my girls proper and not worry about it. I do raise them proper, shelter and protect them as much as I can, but we also know bad things happen to good people for absolutely no reason. And as far as scaring the boys they date goes, well, let's just say you should see my gun collection and huntin' tropies.

For crying out loud a can of wasp spray is legal, stings like mad, shoots about 20 feet, can be ignited, and is a heck of a way to scare off an @zz.

Love it! Just when I thought I'd learned it all in these forums, I get a good safefy tip. Sweet.

So... a woman's supposed to put this contraption inside her, and it's got hooks in it ? And carry it around in there all the time ?

This isn't the 1st. such anti-rape invention that anyone has come up with.
Needless to say, most women are squeamish about having sharp metal objects
in their vagina's.

women should just choose good men,men they trust, simple
rape is a crime of violence, having this device would only get the woman killed, that is my opinion

This has been around for years. I remember reading about it a few years ago, but it doesn't really get much attention in the civilized world where rape isn't much of a problem. Women don't want to walk around with that in them on the one in a million off-chance they'll run into a thug on the street.

As a father, I love this thing. It means that if you mess with my girls there will be instantaneous consequences.

Maybe teach your daughters about life, love, abstinence, safe-sex, self-confidence and the ability to be free-thinking, well-adjusted young women instead of trying to use "devices" for their safety. And don't you think it is their choice, not your insistence, that would be a better idea? Had my father suggested that I be in fear of rape to a degree of using insert-able items to injure said hypothetical rapist, I would have likely carried a sense of fear around that would have made me much less capable of making safe/sane decisions for my self and my own safety. Option to discuss? I guess if that's the way you want to do it. Glorifying this thing? Bad idea in my opinion. Like someone else said: Good way to get yourself killed when said rapist's do-ha is in a vice grip, bloodied and battered. Nothing like making a violent criminal hostile. Oy!! JMO

1. The "condom" does not get affixed permanently into the woman. It is inserted and more or less rests inside of her. When the male inserts his penis, as the head clears the main part of the device the damage is done. Any male who suddenly has dozens of hooks in his member is going to instantly jerk backwards from the pain and in the movement the "condom" slides out of the woman, this means the woman is free of the rapist and the "condom" is instead affixed onto the male.

2. Have you ever gotten your member stuck in a zipper? Seriously, have you? If your a guy then the answer is pretty much a yes, at some point in your life this happens. The pain of just the tip getting pinched is about a 4. Now, imagine dozens of hooks in your member, the pain is going to be substantially higher. The first and initial reaction of the rapist is going to be to get this thing off, which means he will attempt to jerk it off. Not a good idea as the hooks are designed to drive deeper as the device is pulled away. This means more pain.

3. The hooks cause puncture wounds, puncture wounds do not bleed much when the item puncturing them is still in the wound, the skin creates a seal around it and the condom holds any fluids that do leak out.

4. Keep in mind, the female knows she has this, she knows if he penetrates it will attach itself and that is all she needs. Once the male pulls away the majority of instances the female has been able to escape due to the window of opportunity it creates.

For those who tell me to raise my daughters correctly, to teach them about love, abstinence, safe-sex, self-confidence and the ability to be free thinking, I and their mother do. At the ages of 6 & 8 my two oldest already know that when they break a rule and are disciplined, they are the sole reason for it. We work hard to raise them in a safe environment and keep as many bad things as we can away from them. But the reality of the situation is that date rape does happen, rapes do happen. No amount of teaching them can prevent these things and this is the reason devices like this exist.

And for those who say, well it's a good way to get yourself killed, I ask you: Have you ever lived through a rape yourself? Have you ever had to testify after being raped at a trial? I don't know the numbers, but I'm pretty sure a large number of raped women are also murdered, a large number of rapists never get caught or go free because the women simply can not testify, it's to traumatic. Any device that opens a door for my daughters to escape is worth the potential risks that already exist. If a woman is being raped I'm pretty sure the chances of her being murdered are extremely high at that moment.

At least this devices can create a window of opportunity for escape, it's most likely going to have the woman's DNA all over the outside of it and the damage it does forces the male to seek medical attention somewhere, which automatically pegs him as a rapist, I'm sure we can get a law passed requiring hospitals to report any incidents of this device being set off. And how many rapists do you know that walk around with a cucumber or whatever? We all know that most criminals aren't smart enough to carry something around or even think about this device being in use.

I personally, am all for it.

Wow, some of these comments are pretty worrying. Rapists don't walk around with the word tattooed on their foreheads. Most often they're family members, coworkers, lovers, friends, ect. People that you thought you could trust, at least enough to not rape you.

And the thought that rape is a rare occurrence in the "civilized world" is just laughable.

1 in 6 American women and 1 in 33 American men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

God dammit, I knew some screwball would seize on that and completely miss the point.

Do you realize what you're saying? The snag insert was created because in third-world countries, being raped is an everyday worry. Not the "elderly family member betraying your trust and convincing you to submit", but a "strange men could jump out of nowhere and wrestle you to the ground and brutalize you". Not a "there is a something-teen percent chance this could happen in my lifetime", but a "there is a good chance this could happen to me today". These are societies where men are told that they can cure HIV if they have sex with a virgin. When you look at something like this objectively, rape is relatively extremely rare in first-world countries. In the United States or Canada, you can walk down a dark alley on a daily basis and feel a little uncomfortable because you're afraid of the dark. In countries this product was designed for, that is an experience you very well might not even survive.

In first world countries we have a rule of law vehemently opposed to rape (and in favor of the woman's word), and there is a social stigma for rapists (they very well not survive incarceration because even the worst convicts don't approve). Merely being accused of rape in the West can ruin a man's life. In developing countries, it is a part of life growing up for young women, and often a young man accused of rape may go free because someone may decide the girl was "asking for it". When you read an article about a product designed for an African country, and see someone comparing it to a first-world country saying it isn't appropriate because rape is rather rare here (and of a completely different nature), actually stop and think about what is being said, instead of jumping on your soapbox and crying foul because someone tickled an emotional response in you.

People, I swear...

yeah, I can see girls/women having this in, and ;forgetting ' about it or forgetting to take it out before getting passionate with their boyfriend or husband..nice.

have heard of women forgetting they have a tampon in before getting at it and having that shoved in deep by their partner;s penis so assume this could work that way too.

like people with home-protection guns, half of them have a better chance of shooting a family member or themselves than a burglar or some such.

VV


That's more like "people who live with people with home-protection guns who don't secure their weapons from unauthorized use".


which is probably a good percentage of them?

Should a man be cheating on his wife and she discovered it, she could get even with one last offer of sex.

Wouldn't that be considered some sort of assault?

So . . . what? A woman is supposed to walk around all the time with one of these things inside of her? I mean, rape isn't something you know is going to happen to you ahead of time. I think it's pretty bizarre. I think if I were living in, say, Rwanda when all the sh*t was going down and women were being raped wholesale then yeah . . . except then the guy would probably be so p*ssed he'd cut your head off, which is what happened to hundreds of thousands of people.

I don't think it's a very good idea. Carry a can of hot pepper spray in your hand if you don't feel safe.

Yes........lived through a rape.
Yes........ testified at trial
Wanna know why?
I wasn't stupid enough to enrage my rapist to the point of him killing me.
Sure......some kill after the rape.......but guess what?......that was their intentions to start with.
Rape isn't about sex......it is about control.
Take away his inability to control you sexually.......he will look for another way to control you.
Not all rapists are murderers.....but this device could very well turn a rapist into a murderer.
Hell........hooks in your penis could turn any man into a murderer!


I personally, am all for it.

So stick one up your rear and tell us how that works out for ya!
As you might have noticed.....not one vagina owner here has agreed with it.
(only exceptions is if we were to move to a country where we faced a daily risk)

I understand the need to protect your daughters.......but a better way would be to
have them trained by professionals on how to react to a sexual assualt.

rape is grossly exagerated, i do not think half of the so called rape in north america is real, its used all to often by women that have sex with men, women that sleep around, only to have the man go away after he gets what he wants, the woman feels used and cries rape
as for africa , i know i lived there african women are all too ready to have sex with anybody, rape in africa is fiction

All of this is nothing but speculative fantasizing.
Burglar alarm companies make a fortune selling people on a fantasy
about keeping their homes safe. The gun companies make money selling
a fantasy about self protection.
In actuality, simple common sense and very inexpensive precautions will
keep you safer than thousands of dollars of guns, phony alarm systems and impractical rape prevention devices .

By the way..... what's a woman to do when she's on her period and she really
needs a tampon there ?
Should she risk going out into the dangerous world, or abscond herself at home
for a week ?

Ever noticed, under the guise of protection, there's always an unspoken subliminal
motive of more subjugation of women ?

rape is a crime of violence, afican women are promiscuous, its there culture, plain and simple, just loke not bathing, the average sub saharan person uses 50 liters a day, in canada we use over 300
its the western religious missionaries that are trying to stop the natural, and cultural promiscuity found in the african woman

rape in africa is fictionn
from post # 41

in your esteemed 'wisdom', is this also true when it is rape of a 8 or 9 or 10 year old, girl or boy, as often done by the 'guerilla fighters' of Africa ?

so you've been in Africa, I doubt you've been in the midst of fighting or guerrilla action in the Sudan, Somalia, Sierra Leone, or other garden spots like them..being in Africa for a week or 2 hardly gives you all-knowing wisdom as you seem to think.. or even if it were 10 years , which I doubt. You seem to have this attitude that because you have traveled to a number of countries to as you claim, you have this all-knowing, detailed, omniscient knowledge about everything in every one of them - or is it just the aryan thing?

perhaps too bad it wasn't YOU that was gang-raped and you might have a different opinion..

i lived and worked for a human rights organization, for half a year
if you really would have lived there you would be agreeing with me
africans are have all kinds of sex, whenever they feel like it
it has nothing to do with me being white, its there culture, and there culture, even if different then my own, is a culture, we in the west should learn to accept them as they are, and not try and impose our western ideas on them

^^

so like I asked, this applies equally to the rape of 8 -year olds in your opinion?

because, 7, 8 & 9 year olds get raped in Africa (& elsewhere for that matter, even in Europe & N. America) -you can't pass that off as a 'cultural' issue

if that's their 'culture', that culture should die

the 8 year olds really want the sex? (according to you) ?

sounds sick to me man, that's what pedo's always argue.."she (7 year old girl) "came on to me, man"..

afican women are promiscuous

Promiscuous or not, if she doesn't want it, it's still rape. Even if she did want it with 30 other guys. Your posting here is idiotic (and I'm referring to more than your appalling spelling). I don't care what group you worked for and where you did it. You could be an African woman and I wouldn't care. The statistics are clear, and they beyond a doubt transcend what you have seen with your own eyes, no matter who you are. Rape is an enormous problem in sub-Saharan African countries. And it doesn't matter how promiscuous the woman is, rape is still rape.


Aint no frakin way I'm sticking anything with teeth up in my hoo hoo.

I got a gun and I aint afraid to use it.

I like your style.

^^ good point, the 'promiscuous' argument as advanced by some (one) is scary

same guy spouts off all the time about how N. American women are all not into./not good at sex.. methinks the heart of a racist, aryan beats deep inside

this guy probably thought he had the 'divine right' to stick his willy into any African woman he chose to do so... and because of the 'culture of promiscuity' it was all right

they "really wanted it"..'no means yes sometimes'?

"cultural superiority" ?
