Sperm blocker: Researchers who have been developing the Intra Vas Device are expected to announce test results showing "substantial equivalence to traditional vasectomy methods" in a study of 90 men. The device — a set of removable plugs — blocks sperm in the vas deferens, the tube that's cut in a vasectomy. Further research is needed to find whether fertility returns after the plugs are removed.

Testosterone-like pill: A drug called "selective androgen receptor modulator," or SARM, is being tested on humans as an osteoporosis and muscle-wasting treatment. It also shows promise as a male pill, researchers said. A similar drug taken orally reduces sperm counts in rabbits.

Nonhormonal pill: Research shows a non-hormonal compound called CDB-4022 prevents monkey sperm from swimming to their destination. Upon stopping treatment, fertility returned completely in 16 weeks, according to researchers at the University of Pittsburgh. But the safety of the drug still needs to be tested.

"You'll never have all men interested" in new contraceptive methods, Lissner said. "But attitudes have really changed — studies consistently show a majority of men would consider it."

I do like all good Catholics do, just pull out! :smilewide:

It`s interesting that a religion (of which I am a member) that has had SOOOO many problems with the clergy will probably get angry at this.

In today`s context, this is highly appropriate. It means WE CONTROL this aspect of the sexual contract. Just tonight, I was in my rental car and was channel surfing ... and I got the syndicated Delilah who gets calls from sappy women ... and unbelievably so, from sappy men. This total loser told her that his wife, in the last month of her pregnancy, bolts and he has no idea of her whereabouts. Evidently, the stupid mofo was a sperm donor and God knows where this white trash chick will go raise this kid...the worst would be with some lesbian or something and that he would have to shell out the cash.

This is great in that sex could get back to being recreational. Just kidding. That means the only remaining wild card would be STDs.

Bring on male birth control, I say!

Comcast already provides a sperm blocker for my email, why would I want a pill for it?

From the way you "act" and post, I would say NO... at least, not ones that you've helped produce. Plus, the thought of you reproducing is :scared: Edited by trinacriabob

It seems to me the American male has been DE-BALLED enough in this SOFT culture we have today!! "Did you take your pill today my little pet?"-Asked the women. "Yes dear."The whiped modern man responded comtinueing. "Can we do it now?" Do you have a condom and will you respect me afterwords and still see me as an equal?" She then asked as he bows his head and she gives him the LOVE contract. "Yes dear." He replies meakly. "Sign it here that you will respect me and do what I tell you and I will allow you to do your discusting thing if you must!" She then tells him. "Yes dear." He responds.

and then at the last minute, change your mind and give her the necklace she dreams of. don't need contraception for that.
