Rapists Beware

This little device is a pretty ingenious contraption.
The Rape-aXe is a latex tube outfitted with a row of inward facing barbs meant to latch onto anything that entered.

In case it's not clear to some people as you how it would work: It would be placed inside a woman's vagina and when a would-be rapist inserted his penis, it would latch on and cause some serious pain.

They theory is that once the male is stunned (and probably screaming) the woman could get away. As the device is only surgically removable, the attacker would have to visit a medical facility, and thus be identified and turned in to the authorities.

It was invented in South Africa and, as far as I can tell, is only available there for the time being.
While inexcusable anywhere, that region has outrageously high rates of rape and abuse.
If it works as advertised, hopefully it will get wider attention and distribution in all high-risk areas around the world.

P.S. Gentlemen take note: Foreplay is not only fun, it will help prevent unfortunate surprises.
