Birth Control Pills for Guys?

Okay, I just saw on the news something about birth control pills for guys. We are suppose to take it several hours before the deed and it will render our reproductive juices incapable of fertilization for several hours and then it wears off. I see this pill failing on many different levels.

My first argument is--it's to be taken several hours before intercourse (hehe, I said intercourse). Now, I don't know about any of the oily bo-hunks out there,but most guys don't know exactly when they will be getting some. I can only speak for myself--but I'm basically ready to go if given the chance (which hasn't happend in oh-so-long). Plus the unpredictive nature of the female--she may or may not have a headache. So even for married guys, knowing that you will be getting some either that day, or even that hour is not predictable. Correct me if I'm wrong.

That first was the biggest argument. The rest are just little arguments. In today's day and age--don't most guys want to protect themselves from disease and disaster, so therefore carry little trojans with them anyway? It's a pain in the butt to stop midway and dress your fighter up, but it's better than it getting some incurable rash--we already itch enough down there. Plus in sex education, our instructor said that one way our girlfriends can make it fun is for the chick to use her mouth to put the condom on. I like that option.

I'm hoping that maybe The Phoenix
might delve into this new phenomenon and explain the pharmacology of this new pill in simpler terms. I'm not getting how you can render someone infertile for a few hours, especially concerning the little swimmers. What are they just drugged up enough to slow down their swimming ability? Maybe I should have researched a little before I started this rant, so I don't look like I'm lost (which I never admit by the way. I don't like asking for directions--and I'm not lost, I do know where I am, I just don't know where the place I'm looking for is located).

Anyway, what do you guys think of this new birth control concept. Incidently, I heard it will be available in a few years.


  • Works for me as a married guy. Although I'll just be getting the old snip-snip very soon anyway... I hear your complaints from a single guy's perspective though.

  • There is absolutely no way I would ever take that. Something that would make me infertile, even if just for a few hours, is WAY too risky. I think most men would balk at this. There's no way we would want to put our boys in harms ways

    PS. turn off word verification

  • My humble opinion as a happily married gal: about bloody-well time! Unless, of course, it causes the man to have uncontrollable mood swings, limb-amputating blood clots and agonizing abdominal cramps.... why would anyone take something so dangerous?

    Oh wait. That's a few of the symptoms women have been dealing with for years. You'll forgive me for being less than sympathetic to boys whose only worry is rendering their little soldiers inept. :)

  • i understand the problem of knowing when you are having sex. so yes, this pill is useless. what you should have is a day to day pill like we do. take it at a certain time, every day of the year. it would be very convenient for people in more or less stable relationships. For one night stands or for short term relationships the condom is enough i think.

  • what colors does it come in? there is no way i would put a condom in my mouth.

    i think the pill for guys is weird, if it would render them useless for a day, that might work, what with the unpredictability of sex as you described..which i did not realize.

  • I chopped up the nutsack a couple years ago, so...I don't really care what the rest of you do with your dicks and your babies. ;)

  • I like the feeling of firing some hot liquid, I wouldn't want to stop that. (even if it goes into a condom, I still like to see if I blew a big load)

    Sorry if that was a little graphic.

  • I think some of these comments show why men can never be trusted to take the pill. Heaven forbid they're swimmers are rendered useless, even for a few hours. But when it's our turn, guys say go for it. I agree that it would be a problem to know every single time you're going to have sex so they definately need a pill that guys can take every day. Not that they would do it.

  • All I can say is I had more sex when I was single. Being married for 19 years and having teens in the house, put a damper on the whole intercourse idea. (there I said it too.. :)

    When you have kids saying things like... you could wait until we are a sleep or I don't want to here those springs... the mood is gone...

  • Yes your points are valid and probably the reason the pill will not work for dudes. I guess they would market it to married guys.

  • ok guys it must be ur turn to get fat and emotional now. LOL!

  • Yeah, you're right, the timeframe renders this pill useless.

    I've also heard of removable plugs inserted in the guys tubes so the sperm are blocked in. But I believe it is a surgical procedure.

  • I would wonder if taking the pill would jinx me.
