Anti Rape Female Condom By RAPEX

Anti Rape Female Condom By RAPEX.

What is RAPEX Anti Rape Female Condom?

RAPEXTM is a new product that was developed to empower women to defend themselves against rapists. RAPEXTM is a device used by women to prevent rape and to identify the rapist. The RAPEXTM prototype was launched on 31 August 2005, at Kleinmond, Cape Province, South Africa.

Extract From Wikipedia :

The anti-rape female condom (also known as The Bailer) was invented by Sonette Ehlers, a South African woman for the purpose of preventing rape.

The device is a latex sheath held firm by shafts of sharp, inward-facing microscopic barbs that would be worn by a woman in her vagina like a tampon. Should an attacker attempt vaginal rape, the penis would penetrate the latex and be bailed by the barbs, causing the attacker pain and (ideally) giving the victim time to escape. The condom would remain bailed to the attacker's body and could be removed only surgically, which would, hypothetically, alert hospital staff and police.

The Rapex would also act as a preventative measure if an attacker had any sexually transmitted diseases

The device was unveiled on August 31, 2005 in South Africa. Mass production was scheduled to begin in April 2007.[1]

Critics, women included, have objected to Ehlers's invention as "medieval" and "vengeful, horrible, and disgusting" and oppose its planned sale in drugstores.[2]

It is like we are going back to the days where women were forced to wear chastity belts. It is a terrifying thought that women are being made to adapt to rape by wearing these devices ... Women would have to wear this every minute of their lives on the off-chance that they would be raped.

Lisa Vetten (Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation, South Africa)

Others, refer to it simply as a "Vaginal Bear Trap," as it inflicts severe pain on the attacker. Since the wearer of the condom exhibits no visible signals that she is using the condom, there is no visible deterrence for a prospective attacker, which adds to criticisms that the device is vindictive.

This concern for the well-being of a violent rapist has garnered even harsher responses from proponents of the device. However, the device has furthermore caused concern that it could be worn for consensual sex as part of a malicious act of revenge or cruelty.

Others fear that use of the device would enrage an attacker and further jeopardize the victim.[3]

Some contend that a would-be-rapist could feel with his fingers before entering the vagina, use a dildo to remove it, or demand oral and/or anal sex instead.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I wear it?

Should you have to travel long distances alone, on a train, working late, going out on a date with someone you don't know too well, going to clubs, or in any situation that you might not feel comfortable or even just not sure.

Is it possible for a rapist to see if a woman is wearing RAPEX?

Absolutely not! It fits behind the labia and has no strings or anything protruding.

How is RAPEX inserted and removed?

It is inserted with an applicator like a tampon, and removed with the same applicator.

Can't the device disappear into the body?

Not at all. It fits into the vagina and cannot go past the cervix. Nor can it vanish into the bloodstream or anywhere else.

Does this mean I cannot have sex with my husband or partner?

Yes you can, but you will not wear it when you are with your husband or partner in bed, unless you are in a violent relationship and you do get raped by your husband or partner. The choice is then yours whether to wear it or not.

WTF? Some chick leaves it inside of her because she is feeling a little vengeful. Another chick leaves it in her because she forgot it inside of her upsloping abyss. And some guy thinks it is a toy on jackass.
