How many women who are having sex with guys they don't really know would trust, "hey honey, no need for a condom, I'm on the pill?"

Like, zero???

I could see this working for married couples but not anyone else.
The pill isnít for a womanís peace of mind, itís for the males.

Thats what guys want...lots of casual sex without the inconvenience or risk of a pregnancy!
I support that. I hope they do come up with something as effective as female bc pills. I hope men would take it. It would solve a lot of problems

I do think there would be a decent percentage that would use it. The more common place it becomes, more will do so. A great thing. I think like some women, there is a percentage of men who wonít bother, preferring to gamble, thumb their nose at what society norms are.

Awhile back I did some reading on RISUG and other experimental male BC. The surveys showed that almost half of the men stated they would not use it. Although some of these BC methods have been developed for years (1970) and are patented there hasn't been much progress getting them on the market due to low interest both physically and financially.

Dont you think it odd. Men would definitely benefit, men still control most of the $$$.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the research for the female hormonal bc pill began in 1951, clinical trials began in 1956 and it was approved by FDA as an oral contraceptive by 1960. By 1963 2.3 million were taking it although still illegal in 6 states. And it was largely funded by a woman. It took 13 years from development to market for the female bc pill. For the male bc, almost 50 years and still not on the market.

Between child support and government handouts-some see it as a way to avoid little things like working for a living. Granted, that is a pretty small percentage, but not non-existent. Good to see that men might have the same access to simple, convenient contraception that women do.
So what? You will always have your small fringe groups no matter what the issue and the only place you will hear them screaming is by searching the internet for their websites and blogs. The real issue is the MRM? Why are they not financing, advocating and pushing for research and marketing. Why aren't they participating in clinical trials. It is men themselves that are preventing the progress of the male bc pill and other forms of male bc. More reliable male bc options would indeed reduce if not prevent any woman looking for getting knocked up as a meal plan. That and men being more discriminating in whom they choose to have sex with.

True, but it's the man who may be on the hook for 18-22 years of child support if she decides to keep the baby yet wants nothing else to do with the father.

Good news Scooby!
