Vasagel discussed on A Voice for Men Radio

Thanks to James Huff and Robert O’Hara for their discussion on Vasagel. And you’ve got it right: Safe, effective, discreet and long-term contraception for men is THE game changer.

Once we’ve got it brought to market, the next step is for men to gain reproductive rights (we have none), then I’ll work toward mandatory paternity tests. If the father is mis- or un-named on the child’s birth certificate pursuant to a paternity test,  a man shall not be saddled with 18+ years of obligation unless he wilfully and contractually opts in as a surrogate father.

The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men

I’m currently taking steps to try to help bring this to market in Canada.

The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men

By . March 26, 2012, 11:25 AM CDT

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.

Easier than aiming magnets at your junk.

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).

If this sounds awesome for you or your loved one, get the word out. Share this article. Or link. Or this link. Or this one. Or this one. Sign this petition. Do something! A revolutionary contraceptive like this needs all the support it can get.

UPDATE: A lot of people are asking to be kept in the loop. So here’s the clinical trial/mailing list sign-up from the Parsemus Foundation to get further information about this procedure’s development. And again, please fill out the short non-spam petition to get the procedure funded and keep buzz going.

Schrödinger’s Rapist is the New Nigger

Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with fear, distrust, hatred, contempt, or intolerance on the basis of a person’s ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigotry

From a blog that I will not reward with a link.

Misandry isn’t real.

Seriously, fuck anyone who really thinks men are discriminated against any appreciable amount in our society. Goddamn.

MRAs are truly the scum of the earth.

Men who strive for equal rights in law, who struggle for equal dignity in culture and politics are “truly the scum of the earth”.

I’ve had enough of this. Let’s reverse the roles, how would this sit with you, dear Feminist?

Misogyny isn’t real.

Seriously, fuck anyone who really thinks women are discriminated against any appreciable amount in our society. Goddamn.

Feminists are truly the scum of the earth.

Is this truly the world you want to create?

Thought provoking: Swiss to vote on income for all

Thought provoking.

The question boils down to: “Will people become lazy and useless or will they become more productive and strive faster towards social improvement?”

The answer, should this plan be enacted will inform the world’s behaviour for the next thousand years, I’m sure.

I, for one, am very curious to see what the effects would be… as long as the experiment is done at their expense. :)

Pacific Rim: The ugliest and most skillfull Blowjob Ninja ever!

The best awful movie you’ll ever watch.

Allow yourself to experience adrenalin camp. This is the most awesome shitty movie ever. Don’t take it seriously. My only regret is to not have had hallucinogenics on my first viewing of this movie. It’s nearest and best competitor was the remake of The Blob. The sheer campy cliché of it all was heart-poundingly overpowering. I loved it. Your mileage may vary. Watching this movie was like an encounter from the most-skillful and ugliest blowjob ninja ever.

The Difference Between Male and Female Circumcision

The truth about male circumcision and female circumcision, from the point of view of surgical procedures. Many people try to argue that male genital mutilation is less of an affront to human dignity and respect because it is more common, or because “women have it worse” without understanding what circumcision is.

Chances are good that investing 5 minutes of your time will change the way you think of circumcision for life.
