There seem to be plenty of articles about this lately, including the latest linked off of Drudge:
British scientists have developed a revolutionary pill that men could take as a one-off contraceptive just before a date.
The tablet would prevent a man from being able to impregnate a woman, but within a few hours his fertility would return to normal.
This would make it much more acceptable to men than other 'male pills' under development, which alter hormone levels and have to be taken over the long term.
Believe me, the last thing I need to worry about is altering my hormone levels. Any more hormonal changes in me, and I'm liable to start watching Lifetime Television. The story of my thirties so far is how I went from a rock to a wuss-- I don't need any more help in my downward slide.
Apparently, the aforementioned pill works by preventing ejaculation. Personally, I'd prefer a pill that *promotes* ejaculation, but I'm an odd duck that way.
But if this pill keeps me from getting random chicks pregnant-- or, ummm, my girlfriend, yeah-- then it's quite the gift.
Hell, if I had my way, I'd brick and mortar her cervix while I wrapped my +2 Staff of Sexual Healing in Kevlar.
Because there are only two things in life that scare me, and one of them is a surprise visit from the stork.
