This Condom Alternative Pumps Your Ejaculate Straight Back Into Your Scrotum

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

It's 2016, and male contraception still ultimately boils down to condoms and vasectomies. Lack of pleasure and surgery. Let’s face it, they’re not exactly terrific options. Researchers are experimenting with pills and injections, but it’s likely to be a while before safe substances are made commercially available.

That's why German inventor Clemens Bimek has created the Bimek SLV, a valve that attaches to your sperm ducts and diverts your baby-making cells away from your penis, back into the furry sack known as the scrotum. Are you squirming yet? There’s more. The Bimek SLV features a switch, which you can feel and flick through your skin. Valve open, valve closed. Infertility off, infertility on.

It’s made from peek optima, a popular material for implants, and the, ahem, installation procedure is said to take around half-an-hour. The Bimek SLV is currently involved in clinical trials, and Herr Clemens wants you to put your dangly bits on the line. [Ubergizmo]
