Rape me? I’ll Bite Your Dick Off!

A new invention in South Africa aims to take the violence of rape to the rapists themselves:

“Shaped like a female condom and worn internally, its hollow interior is lined with 25 razor-sharp teeth, which fasten on to an attacker’s penis if he attempts penetration.”

Some people – including women’s campaigners – have criticised the device for being “vengeful”. Well, as its inventor, Sonette Ehlers, has said, it’s “a medieval device for a medieval deed”. If any rapist finds himself hopping with pain as a result – as well as facing the fact that the only way to remove the device is said to be a highly awkward and incriminating hospital visit – that seems just fine to me. Yes, it’s vengeful. Yes, it hurts rapists. Oh well.

Rape is one fucked up crime.  I do wonder however what’s gonna happen when the first Serority chick puts one in so that she won’t get raped at a club, but then meets some guy she actually likes, and while drunk, decides to sleep with him (common occurrence I’d say on most college campuses).  Then when the heat of passion is about to be consummated, the shark teeth do their dirty work on a guy who thinks he has consent.

I smell a law suit, and a lot of penis pain.
