Coming Soon to a Drugstore Near You?

Male birth control. Y’know, aside from condoms.

I’ve been hearing about “the male pill” for as long as I can remember, so we’ll see if this time it’s really on the way, or just another tease.

Btw, I love this from the article to which Samhita links:

“It is time for men to have some control. I think it would empower men and deter some women out there from their nefarious plans,” says Brown. “Some women are out there to use men to get pregnant. This could deter women from doing this. An athlete or a singer is someone who could be a target and they could put a stop to that.”
You know what else would be awesome? If it deterred men from ever again invoking this argument.
