    Remote male birth control being tested

    A remote-controlled contraceptive implant for men stops and starts the flow of sperm with the push of a button, similar to locking a car with a key.

    A man would use the remote control to open the valve and allow the sperm to pass through when he and his partner wanted to conceive.

    I would only want to use it if it made the "boop-boop" noise my car makes.

    Re: Remote male birth control being tested

    My luck I'd get "locked out" and lose my keys. I wonder if I could just stop by a dealership and get them to reset that for me.

    On a related note---I'm all for an easy and effective male contraceptive. My wife thinks I'm going to get clipped when the time comes. She's funny.

    You're funny if you think it's not going to happen.

    We'll get to it, as soon as we get past the important stuff. Our brilliant scientists will not rest until every man can get it up.

    Re: Remote male birth control being tested

    I knew I should have held out for a better option.

    My question is how do you know if it is open or closed?

    Re: Remote male birth control being tested

    What if it short circuts and starts to go up and then back down, up and then back down. That could create quite a mess.

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Remote male birth control being tested

    Could somebody "hack" into your remote and open and close your valve without you knowing? That would suck.

    On a side note the High Performance Fun Radio Control Boat in the ad on this page looks like fun.
