Male Birth Control: Get Out of the Bag

Condoms are front and center when it comes to preventing your cock from falling off or, worse, you ending up six feet under. However, once you lock in a safe pussy, all you have to worry about is accidentally knocking her up. She may be adverse to the pill or inserted sperm barriers and so, your only choice would be condoms again or pulling out (and you know how risky that is). Well, soon you may be able to take matters into your own hands (besides jerking off) and use one of these up and coming male birth control methods.


RISUG stands for Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance and works by injecting a special polymer gel called Vasalgel into the vas deferens, which is the tube that carries sperm from the testicles. Do not worry, the injection is virtually painless and the entire procedure only takes about ten minutes. The polymer lines the tube walls and zaps the sperm passing through killing it before it can make a screaming, pooping, dribbling, demanding baby. The polymer is easily flushed out by injecting a special solvent; otherwise the procedure lasts six to fifteen years and is already available in India with expectations to come to the U.S. by 2015.

Pill It

Forty years in the making and it looks like men may soon have the option to pop a pill so they do not pop the baby making goo. Edinburgh University’s Centre for Reproductive Biology has been able to ‘crack the code’ of how to keep sperm at the starting gate without compromising testosterone levels. This was possible by discovering a vital gene called Katnali1 that is responsible for supporting healthy sperm development. The male contraceptive pill would block this gene stopping mature sperm from making it up and out. This research is still being tweaked but may be very close to consumer availability in the near future.

The Patch

Results of a new study funded by the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development consist of a hormone gel containing testosterone and progestin called Nesterone. Progestin is a synthetic formula that mimics the female hormone progesterone which has been found to increase testosterone contraceptive results in men. The gel is administered through a transdermal patch applied to the leg or arm where it is slowly absorbed through the skin. There are minimal side effects according to Dr. Christina Wang, a lead investigator at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at UCLA Medical Center who states, “This is the first time that testosterone and Nestorone have been applied to the skin together to deliver adequate amounts of hormones that suppress sperm production.”

It still may be a few years away but in due time male birth control should become a reality and it will not be unusual for men to climb on top of their woman, woody at the ready, and hear something like, “Honey? Did you take your pill?”
