Ok This Is Crazy...


...


Can you guess what this is? Hmmmm...ok ok I'll tell you. It's rape protection for women and girls. It's actually called FemDefence, and it's just at the testing stages, not in production as of yet. So what do you ladies think of this grand idea? First, i guess, let me tell you how it works.


It is the size of a tampon, and from that info, I think you know what comes next. Yep, it gets inserted "down there". The spike I guess has "no way" of hurting the user, only the raper. But I would think that if you crossed your legs or rubbed them together...I don't know maybe the spike's really small but I mean do these guys (I bet they are men who invented this too haha) really think we'll put this thing up our woo-hoo's just in case? What if I forget? I mean, am I being to weird about this? I think this product is really strange, but in some ways it might work, like going home from a bar or on a late night out. I don't know, you decide because I'm torn.

it seems dangerous for the user...I mean what if it gets stuck or what if you do have your period then what? I think I prefer good old pepper spray, lot less complicated

This would obviously be way excessive just for a night at the bar, but in countries where women are in more danger of rape than the US, things like this (and more effectively, the Rapex condom--look it up) are really, really important. I don't think it's at all too extreme to be used to protect disenfranchised women from abuse or STDs.

this is where here, i seem uneducated, because after i posted this, i watched their commercial, and it had accents in it. i never even realized their target market could be for a different country altogether. thanks for your input.

hmm. honestly, i think it's a great idea, but hardly practical for this county, however it could be for other countries, and therefore a very good and practical idea.

I wanna see this tested somewhere...It looks interesting but I would be sooo scared!

They should market this product combining the words "tampon" and "impaler". The Impala-pon.

Um. That's really creepy. Maybe in different countries (I live in the US) where rape is a much larger problem? But. That sounds painful. And vaguely remsicent of a midevil torture device.
