“an anti-rape female condom invented by sonette ehlers, a south african woman working as a blood technician with the south african blood transfusion service, during which time she met and treated many rape victims.

the device, known as ‘the rape-axe’, is a latex sheath embedded with shafts of sharp, inward-facing microscopic barbs that would be worn by a woman in her vagina like a tampon. if an attacker were to attempt vaginal rape, their penis would enter the latex sheath and be snagged by the barbs, causing the attacker pain during withdrawal and (ideally) giving the victim time to escape. the condom would remain attached to the attacker’s body when he withdrew and could only be removed surgically, which would alert hospital staff and police. this device could assist in the identification and prosecution of rapists.”link to article


this is awesome. it has to be surgically removed. hardy fuckin’ har. i’m curious as if women walk around wearing this thing daily “just in case”. or maybe they insert it before going to a college frat party or something. i kind of want to buy one just to support the cause.

How amazing is this anti-rape female condom? They should give these out for free, too. Like normal condoms, y’know.
