  • Little. I agree that a functional one with limited side-effects would lead to fewer unplanned pregnancies but large picture it would probably be a very minor shift that might not even be statistically important or entirely offset by the amount of guys going "Condom? Oh uh, I got the pill earlier! Yeah!" (Even if they did not).

    That said it would allow both parties to take precautions and feel safe-ish without condoms. Thus solving some trust issues (if there were any). Condoms would remain norm due to stds etc.

    Wasn't there a male pill years ago? It just had some issues like permanent impotence which made guys say no?

  • It most likely will make already low testosterone men lower, and just blow away and play with dolls. However, it has possibly been already launched hidden in the vaccine as the side effects are beginning to surface and if it also makes women infertile, well then you can go at it with no repercussions at all except you may be dead already from it. Say it was so as you projected, I wouldn’t expect women to trust men to use it. The women that don’t use anything and let a man put in, aren’t relying on him pulling out but rather want to get pregnant, been there done that all too many times. However, if a guy doesn’t give a sht about his potential sterility from taking some more “trusted big phama” unknowns, and accidently meet one of my ex-s holding him in, it might give him a good false sense of security. You may as well just get a vasectomy, rather.

    Bottom line: Not a damn thing.

  • Depend on its purpose. If it’s meant to prevent ejaculation all together then there’s no point. Half the half is the ultimate reward. If it’s meant to make sperm cells dormant and incapable of fertilization then it could be something to think about.

    Personally I couldn’t care much for having that pill invented when the funding could be used for something better. Especially because there’s so many other options out there than just the pill.

  • Outside of a relationship nothing.

    as a girl would have to be exceptionally gullible.

    ’I don’t need a condom babes, I’m on the pill ain’t i’

    even in a relationship, it would be hard to trust someone to take a pill that has no real physical impact on them if they forget.

    For some it will be good, especially where the girl is allergic to oral contraceptives.

    it’s also a double braces type of thing.

  • Sadly very little, as guys will simply forget to take it daily and on time.

  • No man would willing take it. It’s only use would be for a totalitarian dictator to control sexual reproduction by force/mandate. It’s a population management tool, so if you are like China with the previous one child policy, you can genocide a particular group of people by dropping their fertility levels below replacement levels and generate a larger population of males that are discontent to be used as cannon fodder in a large war.

  • Nothing because I bet most men wouldn't take it

  • Being promiscuous, men don't want to make babies, or want women to have full control of it. There is already a pill to prevent HIV for those at higher risk, and that works well. So definitely less unwanted and likely less pressure on women to have their own birth control.

  • I wouldn't trust them...

    • The guy claiming to be on them I mean
