    Lightbulb Blocking Sperm: Advances

    My friends and I had a huge discussion about birth control this weekend.

    M who was visiting from China, was telling us that most families there use IUD because of the effectiveness in an environment that mandates family size.

    An informal poll among those present revealed most of us aren’t huge fans of condoms (though I AM a fan of preventing unwanted pregnancies and avoiding STD’s so if condoms work for you: whohoo!) and thus, we were fascinated by a scientist friend’s explanation of the potential offered by RISUG.

    It’s up to a couple to negotiate who is responsible for birth control, but RISUG may prove to be a great tool for men to have in their arsenal. It: allows for sensation, has minimal side effects (so far) and is easy to reverse (thus far in testing on animals) without prompting the anti-immune response that vasectomy reversal can.

    This will only go forward with public support, so {if you wish} take a look into it and see what you think? Is it something you are potentially in favour of?

    Do you think it’s a good thing for a guy to be responsible for his own birth control? Or do you think that should fall more under the women’s purview?

    As someone who hates condoms, I support what these scientists are doing. Although it might never come up for me. XD The only downside is that it's injected, which is...kind of painful, or it sounds that way at least. If they could make pads of it that could work better.


    As to your question, I don't see why they shouldn't be looking out for it, and the fact of the matter is that you generally want to avoid accidental pregnancy. Why not have two people looking out for it instead of one?

    As a side note, how would you be able to tell if the guy was lying?
    Does he get a free "YES I'VE BEEN PLUGGED!" ID card with Smart-Chip(TM) that he can flash when a new lady love needs reassured?

    (I mean, the large inequity is that when BC fails, the woman takes the first and direct brunt of it... so typically she makes sure she's on BC if she doesn't want to entertain conception.)

    I didn't read all the site. I suppose it wouldn't hurt in any way to ejaculate without it being able to go anywhere? or does fluid creation become minimized over time?

    The woman buys it herself and makes the guy inject it in front of her.

    I don't think there's much direct experience of the sensations you're referring to, but my guess is no, since it's similar to edging (masturbating and stopping right before you ejaculate) and that never hurt me.

    One of the reasons I am SO in favour of this method @Totenkindly, is that ejaculation is still possible.

    Mmmmm to edging @The Mask but edging with eventual release is amazing and as stated above, this would allow for that.

    I posted about this months ago. At that time, success rates had been 100% in trials with male gorillas.

    Glad people are interested in the topic now, at least.
    chaotic good.

    fuck around and find out.

    Not sure if it was before my time or I missed it

    Love that you valued it enough to post it. I am a bit shocked it isn't more well known! The trials have gone so well, with concerning factors being resolved. It would allow for more sexual freedom and enjoyment while also leaving family options flexible. Win win! (Of course the human trials are still important before declaring it a 'sure thing').

    This could be potentially revolutionary, if affordable and enough men seek this treatment.

    Women have been the limiting factor in reproduction of the species, and therefore in maintaining the ultimate leverage in relationships. Now the tables may be leveled a bit in that regard.

    I looked through the threads you've started to merge it with this one and I didn't see any titles that seemed to be on this topic. Feel free to send me a link.

    Was probably in my blog or a semi-off topic rambling in some other thread. I'm not worried about it, the same information has been shared here, so it'd be redundant now.
