The Daily Mail ^ | 10-9-12 | Anna Hodgekiss

Posted on 10/09/2012 12:55:02 PM PDT by trailhkr1

Scientists have found a way to stop sperm swimming, making the long-awaited male contraceptive pill a step closer to fruition. By ascertaining how to cut off the power supply that enables sperm to move, a man's wrigglers can now left twitching rather than swimming. The research, led by scientists at Monash University in Melbourne, may also provide clues on possible causes of male infertility.

Keep thinking of Woody Allen in “Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex” as a sperm ready to go and worrying if he’s going to be shot off in a homosexual encounter.

There’s always one who will “tread” until the danger is over. But 99% would be excellent.

Much better than the first male birth control pill. You put it in your shoe and it made you limp.

But a British study published in 2010 found that women didn’t trust men to take a contraceptive pill every day.

And how many men in the past with girlfriends ended up with a baby after the marriage minded girlfriend just "forgot" to take the pill.

Another option is a "dry ejaculation" pill that prevents sperm from being released on ejaculation. These paralyse certain muscles in the male reproductive system, causing a temporary block of the release of semen while having no adverse effects on libido, sexual performance or sensation, so the man still has an orgasm, but produces no fluid.

I don't care what they say, no fluid = less sensation.

Kind of like the ‘joke?’ that has a bunch of he swimmers doing workouts, exercises etc because ‘it’ is going to produce a winning kid. Joke ends with ‘them’ swimming back ‘upstream’ yelling BJ BJ go back.....etc...

I’ll say it here: within a year or two, there will be a lawsuit by some woman saying that the availability of this pill violates her reproductive rights. As in having EXCLUSIVE rights to determine whether pregnancy happens or continues.

it's an old joke, and a little reverse-sexist, but

Why does it take a million sperm to fertilize a single egg?

Hold the left mouse button down as you pass the mouse over the text between the brackets below [ ] for the answer.

[ Because they won't stop and ask for directions. ]

Or just feed the sperm within 30 minutes of sex, and they’ll get cramps.

Jus’ sayin’ ...

I don’t view ANY of my life as having been wasted (although I may have been wasted a time or two ...)

That has been my position for many years.

Once men are in 100% control, are 100% bullet proof on pregnancy, child support, etc, then females will find a way to regain sexual control, and that means tightening up supply and returning to a more traditional bartering system.

Hey..sperm are tough critters..they may yet learn to cope with this. I remember AFTER my vasectomy, THEN the doc tells me that they can survive for TWO MONTHS in the sperm duct...so we still had to continue birth control.

Of course, I also remember a good friend of mine, who had his vasectomy two years before mine, telling me that it didn't hurt one bit..that had his done in the morning, and went back to the office after lunch.

Boy oh boy...he sure got me with that one..

I admit I've had some ons's, some I now regret but have also had 3 long term girlfriends which I don't...learned from every one..and would have married any one of my past gf's if "needed"..I don't hang around or associate with sloots and all my past gf's had character and they would have told me up front (about diseases)..all of my gf's I met through being very close friends with first and are not bed jumpers.

SrS question though if the woman in the pic below came onto you and said she wanted a ONS with you either of you was married/in a relationship would you turn her down?? I'm weak I admit I would not turn her down and I doubt if 98% of unmarried males would and the 1% of those 2% would be gay males.

Wise! That should be men’s reaction to new reproductive treatments. That is where this is leading.

The population control mob doesn’t exactly have the same goals as human beings - flurishing and joyful life.
