Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, “If only I had teeth down there.”
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his pants zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called Rapex. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the Rapex removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, “A medieval device for a medieval deed.”

Ya know…who ever invented this should make a fortune in the Middle East!!!
Hey! How about Detroit and Chicago!
How about Minnesota! Lot of Obama’s sons from Somalia.
Add in the USA, Germany, France, Australia…Hell, get Wal-Mart to pick up the product…every woman everywhere could have one!
Great Idea!!! That’ll teach ’em! Instant Karma for the rapist! Where can I get some?
Every woman in the Middle East should have one.
Especially there! But I think they should be available anywhere and fo all women. I have heard of women in their late 70’s getting raped…..it doesn’t matter how old or young! Rape is not about sex…it’s about violence against women.
That is just sooo sick!
Now That is a deterrent!!! I hope that however invented this gets wealthy! They deserve it!!!
