View Full Version : The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men

Mind you, this reads like a ad so forgive me. But still, 10 years of BC? Would you try it?

Story Here. (http://techcitement.com/culture/the-best-birth-control-in-the-world-is-for-men/#.T3E2ntWiaSo)

If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.

The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years. A doctor applies some local anesthetic, makes a small pinhole in the base of the scrotum, reaches in with a pair of very thin forceps, and pulls out the small white vas deferens tube. Then, the doctor injects the polymer gel (called Vasalgel here in the US), pushes the vas deferens back inside, repeats the process for the other vas deferens, puts a Band-Aid over the small hole, and the man is on his way. If this all sounds incredibly simple and inexpensive, that’s because it is. The chemicals themselves cost less than the syringe used to administer them. But the science of what happens next is the really fascinating part.

The two common chemicals — styrene maleic anhydride and dimethyl sulfoxide — form a polymer that thickens over the next 72 hours, much like a pliable epoxy, but the purpose of these chemicals isn’t to harden and block the vas deferens. Instead, the polymer lines the wall of the vas deferens and allows sperm to flow freely down the middle (this prevents any pressure buildup), and because of the polymer’s pattern of negative/positive polarization, the sperm are torn apart through the polyelectrolytic effect. On a molecular level, it’s what supervillains envision will happen when they stick the good guy between two huge magnets and flip the switch.

With one little injection, this non-toxic jelly will sit there for 10+ years without you having to do anything else to not have babies. Set it and forget it. Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.

The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).

So in theory it's possible for one of those broken up sperms to make it to the egg and creates a Kvrdave like human being?

kvrdave's supersperm will not be stopped by mere magnetism.

I'm not sure I'm up for a procedure that involves puncturing the scrotum.

"When Martin Luther nailed his protest up to the church door in 1517, he may not have realised the full significance of what he was doing, but four hundred years later, thanks to him, my dear, I can wear whatever I want on my John Thomas. And Protestantism doesn't stop at the simple condom. Oh, no! I can get a RISUG injection if I want!"

now if they could just add this to beer, it would be perfect ;)

I had that same fear before getting a skintag cut off of mine. I was worried about the needle to balls thing too, but I didn't even feel it.

:lol: How did I get dragged into this?

The answer, of course, is by the scrotum. Fuckers.

Well that's a relief, and I'm also starting to think that you need an epic thread yourself.

It's not as epic as Dave's scrotum thread, but you can read about my bits here (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk/577724-skintag-scrotum.html?highlight=skintag+scrotum).

Ehh, come again?

How does this fight HIV?

How does this fight HIV?A new drug RISUG™ (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) presently undergoing clinical trials for its contraceptive effect in the male (because it disrupts the sperm acrosome by an electrical charge and pH lowering effects) has also antimicrobial action. The drug being a combination of styrene maleic anhydride (SMA) and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) on being injected into the lumen of the vas deferens produces styrene maleic acid thereby lowering pH; induces electrochemical action leading to a stable electrical charge generation; releases mandelic acid; and induces acrosome reaction in sperms with consequent release of hyaluronidase and sperm inactivation. Moreover, one time administration into the lumen of the vas gives long term action. All these phenomena very well match with the needs for HIV clearance of semen and hence RISUG is here proposed as a possible candidate material for the HIV inhibiting vas deferens implant when delivered in below contraceptive threshold dosage.

Ahhhh, magic. That makes more sense than words with more than 3 syllables.

It was taken from a page that is linked on the site that the OP provided.
