    "...The “product“ is a kind of protection against rape, somewhat similar to a tampon in that it’s user carries it inserted into her vagina. The basic idea is that the woman carries the protective device in her vagina. In it there is a sharp pin which has a penetrating effect on the perpetrator’s penis in the event of a rape. The construction is such that the pin still cannot injure the bearer."

    need I say more?

    cannot injure the bearer my a**!

    Hmm, now to play psychologist.

    Wouldn't getting jabbed make a rapist really, really angry? I mean, rape is a power thing, and if women resist in any way, doesn't that increase the chances of getting seriously beaten/killed by a rapist? Seems like this device can potentially cause more damage to the user (both by her own using of it and the rapist's reaction to it) rather than the rapist.

    But then again, what do I know?

    That's a valid point.

    Then again, when my one-year-old daugther whacks me in the stuff, I find I'm pretty well paralyzed for a while, so I imagine that would be a whole new world of pain.

    I've heard of something like this before- didn't geishas used to have a similar product for protection?

    Whoa. I think I'll take front row seat before the fireworks start.

  5. if things get really bad the girl could always take it out real quick and stab the guy in the face or something. Imagine the shame on the guys face as he walks into a hospital and has to explain why the reason hes blind in one eye is because he was stabbed by a tampon.

    OK I showed this to my significant other. Her response was that the darn thing is likely to do more damage to the girl than the rapist. All she has to do is sit down and OUCHHHHH!.

    She also offers this advice to any girl who finds herself in this situation. Call "Fire, Fire" as loud as you can. Calling for help is useless because no-one will want to know about it. Everyone comes running when they hear "Fire".

    +1 Sit down in the wrong way, and it seems like a girl could easily harm the labia or her inner thigh.

    Looks just the tiniest bit scary...I'm not sure who'd be worse off if it actually came into use, though.

    I don't see how the device could harm the wearer. Its worn internally and is essentially a sealed container that contains a barbed needle. You'd have to be sitting down awfully hard to have this hurt you.

    It reminds me of something I read in a sci-fi book, basically the same thing only the needle was loaded with a fast acting tranquilizer...

    For everyone commenting on it hurting the bearer as well... that isn't a picture of the actual thing.

    ...I don't think.
  10. I can picture cruel girls going to bars with them with the intention of picking up guys just to hurt them

    Sounds like a great way to ensure you pick up an STD from your rapist.

    I agree. The site looks fake to me.
  16. havent read that particuler article, but there is such a device.

    it was designed in Africa, to try and lower the amount of rape that takes place there.

    It has a pressure bad, so that when its "touched" - BANG. blade to the penii! as i understood, the article explained the woman *would* experience pain, and be injured, however the rapist would likely to be worse off - and moreso likely to have learned his lesson...

    will do some digging later. :)
