Male birth control. It seems like a dream come true, because nobody likes taking a shower with a raincoat on, and we all know girls have enough trouble remembering which pair of shoes they wore today let alone whether or not they took their magic pill.

So we’re set, right? Not quite. There’s just one catch. Male birth control, or RISUG (Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance), is literally a pain in the balls.

It’s a very simple procedure that takes about 15 minutes and lasts up to 10 years. And it can even be reversed if you randomly lose your mind and decide you want to have a child.

Here is a brief overview of the process and how it works:

A doctor applies some local anesthetic, makes a small pinhole in the base of the scrotum, reaches in with a pair of very thin forceps, and pulls out the small white vas deferens tube. Then, the doctor injects the polymer gel (called Vasalgel here in the US), pushes the vas deferens back inside, repeats the process for the other vas deferens, puts a Band-Aid over the small hole, and the man is on his way.

So basically, you can still bust, but the stuff you bust won’t contain any of that baby-making stuff. Any difference in sensation is unknown as of now.

What stops the sperm from coming out is known as the polyelectrolytic effect. The polymer gel tears the sperm apart as they climb out of your balls. The aforementioned reversal can be done with an injection of water and baking soda in the same spot.

But don’t get too excited. Odds are, you won’t see RISUG make its move in America anytime soon because the chemicals in the injection aren’t expensive enough to make doctors any money in exchange for their use. Yes, that’s f*cked up. We know.

Honestly though, until they invent a pill that we can take that will have the same effect, don’t go traveling overseas looking for a random doctor to put a hole in your sack. I mean, how good could sex possibly be without the thrill of pulling out anyway?
