Don't think I'd trust dp to take the pill!!!
Plus he'd never have time to go to the docs and sort it out!!!

No I don't think Id trust dh to take pil either. I'm terrible remembering to take mine so have needed to have the coil fitted. Now something like that for men I would possibly trust.

just some of the comments that cought my eye

"The women’s sexual liberation movement was more about creating a matriarchy than anything else."

"Over the years, I have worked with thousands of men who, in my opinion, were raped. “Rape” is the act of forcing one’s reproductive capacity on another person. But law only recognizes this act when a man does it via physical force and violence. "

"So we have it. Despite having the most effective birth control methods available in the history of womankind, women have taken reproductive advantage of men in astonishing numbers. The really sick part is that society blames this all on men, who have very little control over contraception at all. "

Erm...what about the condom? Unless there is an allergy issue then why not use a condom? No contraception is 100% effective (except abstinence ) but if a man is certain he doesn't want children yet then this will reduce the chances surely?

As for whether I would trust dh to take the male pill - yes I would. He's far better at remembering to take pills than I am. If he was happy to take it then I would support him in that decision.

but supposing the man "trusts" the woman and she betrays his trust by "raping him" ( as per the definition in the article)?
