Dr. Sonnet Ehlers has invented Rape-axe, a female device with jagged hooks that latch onto a man’s penis during penetration.

The doctor is distributing 30,000 of these condoms in South Africa during this year’s World Cup.

“It hurts,” Ehlers told CNN. “He cannot pee and walk when it’s on. If he tries to remove it, it will clasp even tighter.”

South Africa has one of the highest rape rates in the world, according to Human Rights Watch. It is also believed that 16 percent of the population is living with HIV. Rape-axe is inserted like a tampon and when embedded to a man the device can only be removed by a doctor.

Interesting device, to say the least.

Found by William Tildesley.

  1. Xandris says:

    As awesome as this device sounds. It wont stop the initial penetration. It will also likely result in the man attmepting the rape to assault further/possibly kill the victim. OR, he may be in such pain that he wont be able to do anything at all. I cant wait to hear of the first case of this being used successfully.

  2. Gary, the dangerous infidel says:

    They should be able to get an endorsement for this device from John Wayne Bobbit, who had to learn his lesson a different way.

  3. Lou says:

    She is the AntiChrist.

  4. RTaylor says:

    I don’t think a fellow will be in a fighting mood with a damn lamprey clamped onto him. Now later on payback might be hell. They learn to check for it first, then the victim is toast.

  5. sargasso_c says:

    In a country where the prime minister has a rape indictment.

  6. Hatman says:

    It would also be a good way to frame someone for rape.

  7. scooter says:

    This will only work until the rapists start checking for the device. then I think there will be more violence with the rapes.

    It is a great idea but I don’t think it will work well in practice.

    My only other comment is OWIE, OWIE.

    Not that the rapist doesn’t deserve it.

  10. Skeptic says:

    Finally a snatch that lives up to it’s name.

  11. Buzz says:

    What part of “so I killed the bitch” does this prevent?

  12. deowll says:

    So your wife, lover, girl friend decide they don’t like you any more. This might be a way to get the point across.

  13. sargasso_c says:

    #12. with this on, it is unlikely any man could walk let alone present a physical threat.

  14. diane says:

    ummm……so, how does a woman get the thing OUT?

  15. Animby says:

    Freud’s “vagina dentata” realized.
    A whole new era of psychoanalysis begins.

  16. bryan forst says:

    I agree with all the comments about the limitations of this device wrt revenge after it has been removed.

    One solution would be training girls and women in unarmed and armed close defense combat. Put a few rapist thugs in the hospital or under ground and see what affect that has.

    Pretty improbable the situation would be worse than it is.

  17. Gary, the dangerous infidel says:

    #16 Animby, I’d never heard of “vagina dentata” until now. Normally a peaceful sleeper, my risk of nightmares has increased exponentially.


    Of course, the idea presents new opportunity as well…

    #18 Wikipedia!!! :O

    lets try this

    #19, Yikes! Suddenly vampires don’t seem so scary.

  20. bobbo, int'l pastry chef and student of Freud says:

    Freud is well known for making shit up. Everything was sex, sex, sex-and then what with being uncomfortable with women, “projecting” vanginal dentata was an easy call.

    Still, he broke the ice and opened up a whole new way to think about the human condition. Start with Freud, but never end there. Still relatively new is the whole field of Darwinian Psychology. Best to take a little bit from all the theories.

  21. Ah_Yea says:

    Yes, this is a very good way to get her killed.

    If rape is epidemic in South Africa, that implies women are held in very little regard. So she traps a rapist with one of these things, and what happens?

    A) The rapist claims she is a prostitute, and get off free.
    B) He blows two holes in her head, to make her an example.

    The whole situation has now gone from bad to worse.

    If you really want this to stop, don’t hand out nasty little sex toys, give her a .45

  22. lion-o says:

    These will become popular, i feel bad for girlfriends who want to get back at ex boyfirends. U know they will use this on them to get them back for that one time he cheated on her in their past. Wow!

  23. chuck says:

    Could be popular with the fetish crowd.
    Where can I get one?

  24. Maricopa says:

    Wonder how long before some thoughtful rapist turns one inside out and slips it on?

    Man! I’m sorry I thought of that.

  25. Glenn E. says:

    So this woman doctor invented this thing. Obviously in violation of her Hippocratic Oath, “first, do no harm”. Creating a “bear trap” for men’s private part, certain falls under the description of pain and suffering. Even though it’s intended to stop rapists. It can’t be 100% certain that’s the only ones who will be victimized. Unscrupulous women, out to make some easy cash as fake hookers. And then use these things to cut the act off short of advertised.

    Let’s face it, no device is ever going to be foolproof or not misused. The reason they have so high a rate of rape in that country, is due to the judicial system there. And these devices are more likely to get the women who use them, into more trouble, than the men who get “trapped” by them. And a certain women doctor a lot of death threats, I imagine. At some point, these things will simply just be banned. They’ll be harder to get in that country, than condoms. And probably end up costing more than most women there, can afford.

  26. Luc says:

    Is that designed to be used in the anus as well? It had better be.

  27. BigBoyBC says:

    This device will only encourage a rapist to commit a more violent criminal act, including dismemberment or murder.

  28. Tippis says:

    There are a number of criticisms that this thing has raised. The most common one has already been mentioned: that chances are this will commonly elevate “just” a rape into severe physical violence.

    A more troubling thing, though, is that it risks further shifting the blame towards the victims: “What? You didn’t wear your anti-rape condom? Then you obviously wanted it, so it wasn’t rape!” We already see this logic related to clothing, behaviour, and so on, and it only serves to weaken the position of women in general.

  29. Frankenwad says:

    South Africa. Right. These will sell big – everywhere but. So, it’s time for an enterprising outfit to come up with a slip-on sleeve with a thick sillyputty attachment to capture and clog this device. While I certainly don’t want to defend rapists, this just isn’t right. Chemical castration would be more humane. This device is potentially more permanently damaging than normal sexual penetration would cause a woman, and it won’t prevent the passing of an STD. This is a revenge device, and must be legally treated as one.

    Hopefully this isn’t real. But real or not it just serves to kick up more distrust between the sexes. Solves alot of problems this does.
