"Rape-aXe" - Anti-rape condom

A South African doctor [Dr Sonnet Ehlers] has developed a new anti-rape female condom... The latex condom is inserted by the woman like a tampon, and features jagged rows of teeth-like hooks that latch onto an attacker's penis upon penetration. Once attached, only a doctor can remove the Rape-aXe...

"It hurts, he cannot pee and walk when it's on. If he tries to remove it, it will clasp tighter. However, it doesn't break the skin and there's no danger of fluid exposure."

Dr Ehlers said she consulted engineers, gynaecologists and psychologists during the device's development, and sold her house and car to help fund the project. It is expected to retail for around $2...

Critics have labelled it a "medieval device", something that Dr Ehlers agrees with.

Dr Ehlers rocks! Especially the bit about her selling her house and car.
