Condom with teeth invented in South Africa to prevent rape

This is the condom with teeth. It is called the Rape-aXe. It is a condom specifically made to protect women from rape. It is inserted like a tampon, and won’t hurt the female, only her attacker. When the man thrusts into her, the condom clasps down and can only be removed surgically. It was invented by South African doctor Dr. Sonnet Ehlers, and it was inspired when the Dr. treated a rape victim who said sadly, ‘If only i had teeth down there.’ The condom is being given out in South Africa, and to women in the military.

Makes me think of the movie Teeth.

CNN article wrote:Women take drastic measures to prevent rape in South Africa, Ehlers said, with some wearing extra tight biker shorts and others inserting razor blades wrapped in sponges in their private parts.
In a society where women feel they have to take measures like inserting sponge-wrapped razor blades into themselves, this is quite an improvement. It is sad that there are places on this planet where women are that afraid.

I agree ... but don't think this is the answer.

The old legend of vagina dentata springs to life...

I suspect the reality for a women using it would be being beaten to death, one way or another...

Hasn't this thing been out for years?

It won't work; women will just be killed for trying to defend themselves. But it's an improvement in the sponge razor thing.

It has...it came out in 2007, and hasn't had any success because it's not comfortable to wear, and is cost prohibitive.
