Men everywhere, rejoice! We finally have a new form of birth control that we’re 100% in control of. A new form of MALE BIRTH CONTROL! That means no more condoms, no more relying on HER to take her pill……or whatever it is she does so you both don’t get a “surprise”. That’s right, it’s here. It’s called…..umm…….
Although there are a panoply of options available for female contraception—hey there, pill! Hiya, IUD! What’s up, female condom that looks like those rainbow-colored inner tubes you used to crawl through during third-grade gym class!—researchers have been trying to develop a form of male birth control for years, to no avail.
It seems, however, that the future of male birth control has arrived in the form of Vasalgel, an injectable drug that blocks sperm from traveling to the penis.
Yes, Vasalgel! Oh happy day!
It’s a gel that you inject into your bathing suit parts so you shoot blanks instead of full rounds.
Basically, here’s how it works: The gel is injected into the vas deferens, the tube that delivers sperm from the testes to the penis. Vasalgel would essentially block sperm from traveling to the penis. In essence, the drug serves the same function as a traditional vasectomy, except without the pesky snip-snip involved. (Much like a vasectomy, the procedure will also likely be reversible.)
Inject? As in, a needle? Into our junk?
