Scientific Advances on Contraceptive for Male

ThoughtsAblaze ThoughtsAblaze
I just stumbled upon this article at The New York Times and had to share: link

Considering procreation takes two people, I think it's great to see science approaching contraceptives from both a male and female perspective. Birth control for both parties could make sex even safer, and this would be helpful for women who can't use hormone-based birth control methods (such as me).

What do you think of this? Have any of you guys tried a contraceptive, or are you interested in it?

I had horrible luck with the hormone-based BC methods myself, and Alan always said he wished there was something he could take instead. Eventually he opted for a vasectomy, but that's not something that every man would be willing to do. I think it's brilliant that they are exploring other options besides just condoms for men, particularly since we now have a friend who's going to be a daddy because his wife lied about being on the pill. Theirs is a rocky relationship, so he's not as happy as he could be, ya know?

On a personal note, I remember back in high school thinking how it sucked that we girls were more responsible for birth control, when the boys did far more begging for booty than we did . So I can't help but feel pleased knowing that the responsibility might be more evenly weighted for future generations.

I'm totally down with it.

I don't think it would "jeopardize" my masculinity. If women have been the responsible ones for bc with The Pill and whatnot, why can't guys step up too?

Besides, do you know how many family court cases over baby-daddies would be out of the system if the guy could prove he was on birth control?
