“Teeth” on female condom to fight rape…

Dr. Sonnet Ehlers, a South African doctor, has invented a new female condom, the Rape-aXe. With teeth-like-hooks, it will grab on to a penis during penetration and can only be removed by a doctor.

 

“It hurts, he cannot pee and walk when it’s on,” she said. “If he tries to remove it, it will clasp even tighter… however, it doesn’t break the skin, and there’s no danger of fluid exposure.” (Dr. Ehlers)
