Simple, Effective, 10-Year, Reversible Male Birth Control.

Every 15 year old boy in America should go get this.

10 years of awesome sex and no babies.

Unlimited, unprotected sex (with your loved one)? A New Sexual Revolution is Coming.

All the Sex you could ever want with none of the Unexpected Babies?

This Changes Everything:

“…With one little injection, this non-toxic jelly will sit there for 10+ years without you having to do anything else to not have babies. Set it and forget it. Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.

The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).

If this sounds awesome for you or your loved one, get the word out. Share this article. Or link. Or this link. Or this one. Or this one. Sign this petition. Do something! A revolutionary contraceptive like this needs all the support it can get.

UPDATE: A lot of people are asking to be kept in the loop. So here’s the clinical trial/mailing list sign-up from the Parsemus Foundation to get further information about this procedure’s development. And again, please fill out the short non-spam petition to get the procedure funded and keep buzz going.”

Read here for the full article.

Not sold, you crazy kid? Here are the other best, “greenest,” safest forms of birth control.

Can you afford it, gents?

“This calculator is useful… and scary.

‘Your baby’s first year will cost: $10,158.'”

Awesome Reddit comment challenging that $$$ figure:

“Mine came out to $4400. Yay for no child care. Also second hand clothes/toys ftw. That still seems high. I think I spent probably closer to $2500-$3000 for my first kid’s first year. We’re on our second, and we’re on pace for even half of that. Only costs at this point is formula, diapers, wipes, and toiletries. Routine doctor visits and vaccinations are covered 100% by insurance..

Figure you get back $1000 on taxes, cuts it a little more too, so not horrid so far.

Edit $105 a month on forumla is nuts. $40 for a giant can at Costco, and that lasts 3 weeks. Box of wipes is $20 there, and that’ll last 2 months. Bulk packs of diapers bring down that cost to about $40-$50 a month (plus pampers is generous with coupons, and has a rewards program that works out to about 2-4%). Between eBay and second hand stores we’ve got about the first 2 years of clothing for ~$150, so screw $60 a month.”


“I’d also make a note that kids ideally should be breastfeeding during their first year, so the estimated formula costs should be much less than that.”

On the other hand:

I have a 1 month old and these are the basic costs for my childs first year.

Total Birth costs(with insurance) – $3700 Daycare $800 @ 11 months – $8800

Total – $12,500

    re: prohibitive cost of infant formula, how about FREE breastmilk!

    but if men did this responsibly who would sell all those horrid women's birth control pills? Somebody would lose some major bucks no?

  4. Brent says:

    Wow, how far will people go to avoid responsibility? Pretty far I guess! My opinion is that coming up with new ways to avoid dealing with underlying psychological immaturity isn't going to help the young generation of men currently becoming sexually active. having trouble dealing with your sexual urges? Join the club – it's called 'the human race'! You've got a brain just like the rest of us, and you'll have to learn to use it like the rest of us. No amount of needles, pills, or quick fixes are going to help you with that one. Men having difficulty growing out of boy psychology need mentorship, guidance and education not needles. What we're seeing in society is symptomatic of much deeper issues and can only be dealt with at that deep level. I do really appreciate watching the human race persist in its folly though – keep it up team!

  5. hands of eye says:

    this should be given to every 14 year old on planet earth

    it would be the greenest thing you could do for the planet

    can't wait for this to be on the market. re:costs
    breastfeeding (if available, which it frequently isn't for various reasons)
    wipes (my friend just had a baby and they are only using one-use wipes when travelling. otherwise: wash-cloth.)
    Also: reusable diaper. they did the math and saved tons of money.

    Haha. Alright. His turn.

  8. William Roentgen says:

    Are you suggesting that it would be a good idea for these young men, still growing up, to have children while they themselves are not fully adult?

    Abstinence as a policy doesn't work; the statistics are clear that even in populations that wish to be abstinent, a substantive number still become sexual active. Wishing that these young men, who discover that their biology is much more powerful than they anticipated, actually have children is deeply sadistic towards them, their mates, and their children.

    To believe otherwise is to simply ignore reality because it doesn't match how you wish it to be. The research is clear.

    This sounds like it is a fantastic and comforting alternative to birth control for adults in healthy, monogamous relationships. It's good information and about time that we had a non-toxic alternative to the pill.

    I must say though, I feel the statement that "Every 15 year old boy in America should go get this." is somewhat irresponsible. Unfortunately, I think that most 15 year old boys (at least from what I can recall) are far more scared of babies that the array of STD's out there. It sounds like this form of birth control won't protect anyone from STD's anymore than the pill does. Ultimately, educating our teens above and beyond "birth control" is the key, but I would worry that without the fear of an unplanned pregnancy, unprotected sex among teens would skyrocket.

    Brent, thanks, Brother. I thought was the only Old World Fart on here. You are obviously way too mature for the American yoga movement. It's ALL about girl psychology – in fact, even the boys have it. I'm not even sure they've developed boy psychology yet.

    Needles and condoms. Haven't you heard? That's all you need for a happy adolescence – plus yoga, of course, but really sex is better. Oh, you will hear plenty of rhetoric about the need for "comprehensive sex education" blah blah blah. It's pure pablum. Any attempt to tell anyone anything, to guide in any way, is quickly dismissed as the oppressive jackboot of Christian "abstinence-only" education.

    Even so, like all proposed technological "fixes," in our corporate-dominated system they always end up being far more complicated than imagined. Nothing moves unless it squares with industry's needs, so there will likely be a lot of restrictions on how this eventually comes to be mainstreamed, if it's deemed, in the end, "safe."

    If they can figure out a way for this same jelly to add 2-3 inches to the male penis, while keeping vaginas smelling sweet, there may be a revolution, and no man, woman or child will be safe!

    Rest assured, women will be the big losers here, They always are. GO LINGAM. BEAT YONI.

    Consciousness about all our activities is optimal. This sounds like a good second choice…

  13. […] amendments, who try to require transvaginal ultrasounds prior to an abortion, and restrict access to birth control. But it’s not actually about abortion or birth […]
