This is our first experimental run at a “Sex News” format. If we work out the kinks (giggity), it may become either something we do every couple episodes or even a spin-off show.
See the bottom of the post for links to all the news articles discussed in this episode.
Please take a few moments to fill out a demographic survey to support the show by helping us get the best sponsors, and also make sure we have advertising that’s most likely to be relevant to you. The request for an email address is TOTALLY OPTIONAL, so feel free to NOT provide your email if you prefer. Also, please remember that this is a demographic tool provided by a vanilla establishment, and as such is not particularly flush with the range of options that our listeners would expect from a survey we actually created.

An Indian scientist named Sujoy Guha is perfecting a form of birth control that, mark my words, will change our relationship with sexuality for the better.
Since the first Pharoahs wrapped their cocks with lamb skin, the condom has been the only really practical method of male birth control. Condoms suck. We all know they suck.
Sadly, for women, female birth control can suck even worse. Any time you go fucking around with someone’s hormone levels you’re risking side-effects, and every available form of female birth control has them. Some women’s bodies simply can’t tolerate hormonal birth control. For many others the side effects are intolerable and unreasonable.
This creates a great many guys in monogamous relationships who are wrapping their dicks just to avoid pregnancy, with no reason to worry about diseases. Well, it looks like a real option for male birth control might be coming to a urologist near you within a few years.
Guha’s procedure is called RISUG (Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance), and it promises a new era for male contraception. Unlike a vasectomy, nothing gets snipped or tied and and it’s 100% reversible. Unlike all chemical or hormonal methods, it doesn’t fuck with the guys sperm production or body chemistry.
RISUG coats the inside of the vas deferens (sperm pipeline) with a nontoxic compound that basically tells the little guys to stop swimming. A second injection can clear it out and return your swimmers to their former glory. So far, among hundreds of patients in clinical trials, the procedure has been 100% effective without a single adverse reaction or side effect. This sounds like the real deal.
The best part: as a contraceptive procedure, I believe insurance companies in the U.S. will have to cover it; meaning a whole lot of American women will be able to stop fucking with their hormone levels without any fear of an unplanned pregnancy.
That, my friends, is progress.
