Razor-Sharp Barbs Await Rapists in Female Condom

June 21, 2010

(ChattahBox)—The chance of becoming raped in South Africa is so great that women are known to alter their attire to make an attack more difficult, such as donning tight-fitting bike shorts. In extreme cases, women literally booby trap their vaginas with razor blades. A South African female doctor, frustrated with the vast numbers of helpless rape victims, decided to provide women with another weapon in their arsenal; an armed and dangerous female condom fitted with razor-sharp teeth that latch on to an attacker’s penis. Like a Chinese finger trap, the more the rapist attempts to remove the barbed condom, the tighter it becomes.

South African Dr. Sonnet Ehlers, calls her female condom with teeth, Rape-aXe. And she is currently distributing them at venues hosting the World Cup soccer games.

Rape-aXe is described on its website as an aid in rape prevention and prosecution:

“The Rape-aXe system consists of a latex sheath, which contains razor-sharp barbs. The device is worn in her vagina like a tampon. When the attacker attempts vaginal penetration the barbs attach themselves to the penis, causing great discomfort. The device must be surgically removed, which will result in the positive identification of the attacker and subsequent arrest.”

Societal norms, lack of health care for poor women and no DNA testing resources, contributes to a very low criminal prosecution rate for rapists. In fact, South Africa has one of the highest rape rates in the world.

Ehers suggests that women wear the armed condom on blind dates or other instances when they feel at risk. “The ideal situation would be for a woman to wear this when she’s going out on some kind of blind date … or to an area she’s not comfortable with,” she said.

Critics of Rape-aXe, are concerned that the product would enrage rapists and put victims’ lives at risk. But Ehers believes her barbed condom would make men think twice before raping a women.

    FOOLISHMENT at the every level!!!!!

    should women insert a second device in their rectum, as well?!!!!

    1. pass it out at the World Cup with International News advertising!!!
    2. now potential rapists know about the product and check for it prior to insertion. suppose they use about 12 inches of broom handle to check?!!!!
    3. then they remove it and rape anyway.

    Now comes the horror…..

    1. the rapist puts his finger on the end and pushes it back through the middle turning it inside-out putting the “teeth” on the outside.
    2. then he re-inserts it back where he found it
    3. the anti-rape device is turned into a torture/punishment device added to the horror of rape (vagina or rectum!!!!!)
    4. the rape victim has to go to the good Dr. (inventor?) to have the device removed!

    This is bulls…t invented and advertised by idiots!!!!
