Anti-Rape Condom Aims to Stop Attacks

    Anti-Rape Condom Aims to Stop Attacks

    KLEINMOND, South Africa (Reuters) - A South African inventor unveiled a new anti-rape female condom on Wednesday that hooks onto an attacker's penis and aims to cut one of the highest rates of sexual assault in the world.
    ADVERTISEMENT

    "Nothing has ever been done to help a woman so that she does not get raped and I thought it was high time," Sonette Ehlers, 57, said of the "rapex", a device worn like a tampon that has sparked controversy in a country used to daily reports of violent crime.

    Police statistics show more than 50,000 rapes are reported every year, while experts say the real figure could be four times that as they say most rapes of acquaintances or children are never reported.

    Ehlers said the "rapex" hooks onto the rapist's skin, allowing the victim time to escape and helping to identify perpetrators.

    "He will obviously be too pre-occupied at this stage," she told reporters in Kleinmond, a small holiday village about 100km (60 miles) east of Cape Town. "I promise you he is going to be too sore. He will go straight to hospital."

    The device, made of latex and held firm by shafts of sharp barbs, can only be removed from the man through surgery which will alert hospital staff, and ultimately, the police, she said.

    It also reduces the chances of a woman falling pregnant or contracting
    AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases from the attacker by acting in the same way as a female condom.

    South Africa has more people with
    HIV/AIDS than any other country, with one in nine of its 45 million population infected.

    Ehlers, who showed off a prototype on Wednesday, said women had tried it for comfort and it had been tested on a plastic male model but not yet on a live man. Production was planned to start next year.

    But the "rapex" has raised fears amongst anti-rape activists that it could escalate violence against women.

    "If a victim is wearing such a device it may enrage the attacker further and possibly result in more harm being caused," said Sam Waterhouse, advocacy co-ordinator for Rape Crisis.

    Other critics say the condom is mediaeval and barbaric -- an accusation Ehlers says should be directed rather at the act of rape.

    "This is not about vengeance ... but the deed, that is what I hate," she said.

    shit like this is like condoms...only effective when used.

    how many of the 12oz ladies would be willing to wear one of these every single day?

    doesn't really seem realistic here. I'm sure Africa is a different story...but still...every day...just in case.

    if i was living in africa, under the conditions that most of the women there experience, i would wear one everyday. we dont really have the type of threat that they do...

    imagine: you really have nothing but your body, and no one to protect you. the bodies of these women are constantly threatened to be invaded by these disease-carrying beasts.

    granted, women in the united states have that problem as well, but not to the extent or degree that women in africa do.

    that little contraption is a damn good idea.

    That one was a joke though, this one is a real product.




    Since this is a yahoo news article, the actual message has nothing to do with rape prevention or this product. The message is this:

    It kind of goes alone with their looting articles from the day before.
