The lemon diaphram is actually quite ingenious at least from a primitive design standpoint.

Yeah, the crocodile shiat would probably be a deal breaker for me.

History's Greatest form of birth control:

In the 1950s, the idea spread that the carbonic acid in Coca-Cola killed sperm, the sugar exploded sperm cells and the carbonation of the drink forced the liquid into the vagina. So it became an after-sex douche: Women would shake up a bottle, insert it and let the soda fly.

I don't think I was supposed to get turned on by that...sorry.

Well since this is a birth control episode, it's as good of a place as any to ask; are there any developments on any upcoming birth control pills/shots/etc for men?

Being a brony is a pill or shot now? I thought it was just watching a TV show.

Apparently these were phased out by the army a couple years back:

Actually, these days those glasses are likely to get you laid by a cute hipster girl. We're through the looking glass, people.

I've always felt that being around children was the best form of birth control.
 
2014-04-29 08:09:11 PM  
So...dudes didn't figure out how to pull out until recently I guess.

They phased those in when Elvis Costello and Lisa Loeb brought hornrimmed glasses back into style.

Because we all know how well that works.

I know three women who ended up pregnant while using Nuvaring... is that just anecdotal, or is it a problem contraceptive?

What about blowjobs?

Not as bad as weasel testicles or Coke in the vagina.

FTA: "As we all know, spermicide isn't effective at stopping pregnancy once the seed is already inside the vagina, so steaming it never stood a chance. "

That's absolutely incorrect/wrong/misinformation since most spermicides are used inside the vagina.
Yep, article written by a man who has most likely never used spermicide.

What about tying a boy down and crushing his testicles? Did that make the list of worst forms of birth control? Cos they used to do that and it worked.

How about history's best form of birth control:  Silphium.  An uncultivatable plant, used into extinction by the Romans.
 
2014-04-29 10:29:46 PM  
Is "Having a Totalfark subscription" on that list?

Looks like failure rate is 9% for "typical use", which is pretty close to most bc pills, but much better than the 22% seem in the pull out method advocated above.
Iuds and implants have much better success rates, probably because they don't require as much user interaction.

This is a nice breakdown.

Did they forget the number one worst form of birth control?  I mean come on really?

Rhythm method ring a bell?  Hello?

Worst form? I'm tossing in Lo Estrin FE combined with losing over 70lbs.

Apparently, I'm fertile.

Yes but the spermicide is put in before the seed arrives, with the steaming method being described, the sperm is first put into the vagina and then the spermicide later and it's ineffective.

Lemon juice? Wouldn't that burn?

So there is actually historical proof of Pennyroyal Tea distilling the life out of people?

It's a problem when you pull out and it's wrapped around your dick.
