`Anti-Rape Condom' Bites Back

South African doctor Sonnet Ehlers has created this `anti-rape condom' designed to latch onto a man's penis if he tries to force himself on a woman. It can
only be removed by a doctor, so the assailant has to automatically go to the hospital and 'fess up.

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A doctor in South Africa thinks she’s finally found a way to take a bite out of rape.

Dr. Sonnet Ehlers has invented “Rape-aXe,” an “anti-rape condom” that features razor-sharp, teeth- like barbs designed to sink into a man’s penis upon unwanted penetration.

Ehler says women wear the device like a tampon and if a man attempts to rape them, his penis becomes trapped in the latex. The rapist then can’t pee or walk without intense pain – worse than getting his privates caught in a zipper.

To add insult to injury, the condom can only be surgically removed by a doctor, so the man is “branded” and forced to confess his crime.

Ehler believes “Rape-aXe” gives women much-needed “armor” in dangerous situations. She recommends ladies wear it out at nightclubs, on blind dates, and when hiking alone – just in case.

As a trial, the doc is currently distributing 30,000 free anti-rape condoms all over South Africa.
