Teeth that bite or mentality change?

Caution: The following article is very graphic in description. Reader discretion is advised.

Since I was a child, my Dad always tells me to be wary of strangers and do not accept anything offered by those who I don't know. And, it was the same drill until I was 19. (He had passed away when I was 19.). I used to roll my eyes at his caveat every time as a teen and tell him not to baby me. Now, I know that his fear has a very good reason.

Women have so much to fear. And, the fear and malaise is almost always inflicted by the Adam kind. We have to be fearful of the very persons who are supposed to protect us. From how many people should women run away for dear life and dignity from? From close relatives in the case of incest, from educators, from rogue men, from colleagues, from employers and the list is endless.

Rape happens even in countries where the women are covered from head or toe. It is not a sex thingy; it's a display of power like dogs pissing on walls to stake their territory.

Rape doesn't mean only forced intercourse; it is more than that. Rape is grossly compartmentalized. Are women not raped every day when we walk down the street and leered at? Are women not raped when we are considered as nothing more than sex objects, our rights, denied and we getting subject to oppression in a myriad of ways? 

It is only of late where women are venturing out to create a niche for themselves and show competence in a Man's World. These type of men will send women back into the kitchen and forestall the rightful progression of women. I am not succumbing to misandry. I know that there are many gentlemen out there who are repulsed by crimes against women.

Take a look at this.

Any idea of what is this and what is its purpose?

No idea?

I will tell you then.

Rape was becoming widespread in South Africa, so a medical technician, Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately got national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling him, "If only I had teeth down there."
Some time afterwards, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis got stuck in his zipper.
Ehlers merged both ideas and invented a product she called RAPEX. It resembles a tube with barbs inside. A woman inserts it into her vagina like a tampon, with an applicator and any man who tries to rape the woman impales his penis on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the RAPEX removed.
When critics complained that it is a medieval punishment, Ehlers tersely replied, "A medieval punishment for a medieval deed."

Yes, rape is a primitive deed, spanning cavemen times where a caveman would bang a cavewoman at his whim and fancy. Rape is not classified as a crime until recently in the history of mankind where human rights, women's rights and feminists surfaced in order to create a truly liberate, liberal and civilized society.

The question that arises and even necessitated here is whether our society today is truly liberate, liberal and civilized.

Rape is an ancient, tried and tested universal crime, the drawing of a distinction only being the frequency of this heinous, malicious deed committed around the world.

Rape has been used as a war tactic to subdue women because terrorizing a society's women is as good as disabling it and later, in due time, obliterate the whole society. This is true in African nations infested with civil war, Sri Lanka, Bosnia Herzegovina, Taliban, Khmer Rouge and whatnot. 

And, RAPEX is not a new tool designed to prevent rape. There is a folk tale of Vagina dentata which is Latin for toothed vagina. I read about this some time back when I was in high school and my memory got refreshed by the recent gang rape case in Delhi, India which sent India into insurgence, demanding justice. 

Vagina dentata describes a folk tale in which a woman's vagina is said to contain teeth, with the associated implication that sexual intercourse might result injury to the penis or castration.

This tale is told to discourage rape and coitus with strange women.

Now, let's look out at the benefits of RAPEX.

Once a rapist gets bit by RAPEX, he would be subject to unbearable pain and maybe even risk impotency. He has to go to an emergency room to remove the RAPEX. So, he can be immediately convicted of rape and be tried in the court of law. I'd shoot him in point blank range, rather.

Along with puberty talks in high school and the distribution of sanitary napkins, perhaps RAPEX should be distributed too. For that to happen, RAPEX should be mass produced like condom and make men aware of the existence of RAPEX and let them contemplate on being Rapexed. I can totally imagine a guy getting Rapexed! Sweet revenge!

It might deter rape and rapists but it is subject to moot. The practicality of RAPEX seems to be wanting.

In cases of gang rape, this tool may backfire. After the first goer rapist kena gigit, surely the others in aid and abet would be in cognizance of the vagina dentata and rape the girl more violently in provocation. After they are done with their sick business, they might clobber the girl savagely or even kill her.

The 23 years old medical student who was gang raped in a moving bus had resisted her aggressors and in order to make her docile and to put her in her place, an iron rod was rammed into her vagina which perforated her uterus, small intestines and big intestines. Later, they practically disemboweled her by pulling her insides out. Bone chilling as this is, RAPEX won't be of any help in similar scenarios of rape.

What if the rapist indulges in fingering and oral sex foremost and discovers the RAPEX lodged inside the woman's vagina? Maybe he would remove the anti rape kit and rape her more violently than what he initially had in mind. The removal of RAPEX maybe similar to the removal of tampons, I can't tell for sure.

There is a probability of RAPEX injuring the woman wearing it. It is, of cause a foreign object with the same purpose to a certain extent of chastity belts, the only difference being Vagina dentata being worn inside the body.

A chastity belt is a locking item of clothing designed to prevent sexual intercourse. They may be used to protect the wearer from rape or temptation. Some devices have been designed with additional features to prevent masturbation. Chastity belts have been created for both males and females ostensibly for the purpose of chastity.

Chastity belt is also not a new invention; it dates back to the age of the Crusades. When the knight left for the Holy lands, his Lady would wear a chastity belt to preserve her faithfulness to him. So much for matrimonial trust.

Other resources say that chastity belts were used in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance period, a hundred years after the final Crusade.

Recent developments of the chastity belt has been made but they are far and few in between and is not contained in up to times practicality.

Perhaps the most effective way to prevent sex crimes lies in a change in mindset. Males should be taught not to rape and to respect women, after all, they came from a woman's womb and exited through her vagina. Awareness and ethics remain to be the most powerful tool to curb rape anywhere.

In a domestic level, mindsets need to have a paradigm shift. Internalized patriarchal systems should be atoned, male supremacy, given to redundant practices. Instead of telling girls how to dress and not to stay out late, drill in the idea in guys that if a girl wears revealing clothes and stays out until late at night or is comfortable and amiable and enjoys male company is an invitation or even a validation to inflict hurt on her in any form and manifestation in order to subdue her or 'teach her a lesson'. The only lesson is, men should NOT RAPE. If her dressing provoked males to rape, then I should break those males' face because their temerity provoked me. Who gave the right for men to be women's moral police? So, she took the bus late at night so, she must not be a virgin and maybe even promiscuous and for that raping her is warranted. She taking the night bus home is  not the perversion, the perversion is in the mind of the rapists.

I have come across guys who think girls who has guys as friends are nothing but low life bitches and sluts and ought to be 'corrected'. And, it is here, in Malaysia. I don't know what or who gave them the right and authority to 'correct' girls, if you know what I mean. It is not the girls who need to be 'corrected'; If there is anything that demands to be 'corrected', it is the shitty mentality of such guys and this oppressing system. Chivalrous men's reputation gets defiled because of certain sick lots.

The orthodox notion that men are superior to women, men have rights which women should not have and men are women's conquerors contribute to rape, domestic abuse and sexual harassment. This has to change in order to prevent not only rape but all crimes against women.

And, then there is the factor of humiliation; thousands of rape cases go unreported and justice, denied for those who are victimized. If a woman is robbed and she surrenders herself to her assailants, not resisting batter in order to stay alive, no one blames her for being passive while terrorized. The scenario takes a cartwheel in the case of rape; a rape victim is asked why did she let them do it, why she did not resist and whether she enjoyed it.

As long as women are oppressed in varying ways, they will continue to be susceptible to rape. Mystifying rape needs to be stopped and it's existence around us must be acknowledged. Shrouding rape in secrecy should be stopped and rape should be seen as a violent crime in which the rapist is the cold blooded criminal.

Until the basis of the thought of underlying male supremacy that women are meant to be consigned into subjugation, until women cease to be regarded as the property of men, women will continue living in fear and constant insecurity of being ravaged with impunity. The only crime women are guilty of is being female. Nothing gets more unfair than that.


  1. i dont think this is a good idea.. i mean, do u have to insert that "thing" every single day?? Ouch!!
    How about in terms of hygiene??
    Also for virgins, that thing looks a lil too BIG!!
    Personally, I rather learn self-defence techniques compared to RAPEX...

  2. I share your exact opinion and logic. I just wrote about a possibility, not a surefire rape prevention. Even tampons are not advisable for virgins because the hymen gets stretched by the insertion of the tampon and the inner membrane might even rupture.

  3. That thing rapex is an evil contraption and must be made illegal to market it.What happens if the wife or girlfriend forgets to remove it when making love with her partner.It's going to cause immense pain to his manhood and he might become impotent(cannot sustain erection) resulting in the breakdown of marriage and relationship.As you know a penis is an integral part of a man and losing its function can cause a man to lose his self esteem and contemplate suicide.A better way to deter rape is by having special sex education classes for males only to learn about the female sexual organs and their functions so that they will learn to respect the female form and not bow down to lust or treat females as sex objects anymore.Apart from that ,religious and moral education should be provided.

    1. My article is a comparative one. I never mentioned that Rapex is the solution to rape anywhere in my article. It is a hypothetical and subjective statement. There are a multitude of ways to prevent or curb rape like women empowerment, male mentality change, education, strict and swift law authorization and whatnot. A combination of all of the above in my latter statement will contribute to dwindle rape and other sexual abuse.

  4. anon 1.25am. I agree with you on that Rapex thing.If a man gets injured in his willy,he won't be able to perform on bed and can't do routine habits such as wanking after watching porn.He will feel sexually incapacitated and vent his frustrations elsewhere and can be a danger to family and society.Another productive measure to deter rape is urging men to attend yoga classes where they can learn to control their sexual urges by balancing their chakra and reap other benefits to make them strong and healthy and inculcate a positive attitude on life.Hopefully with positive values embedded and a clear set of mind,they will initiate fucking a lady only with her consent and not forced entry.
