Are 'Testicle Baths' the Future of Male Contraception?


A german designer named Rebecca Weiss has created a device that can be used as contraception for men.

According to the Coso Contraception website, users are required to place their testicles inside the "testicle bath" before receiving an ultrasound to temporarily stop the formation of new sperm.

The contraceptive is "reversible," "hormone-free" and can be used at home. In order to stay temporarily infertile users are required to use the device every two months.

Rebecca says she created the device because she noticed there were limited male birth control options.

"When my partner and I were looking for an alternative method, we became aware of the lack of male contraceptives," she says, "this problem is not unique to me personally; it affects many others as well."

This week Rebecca won the James Dyson award, an international award that celebrates design and engineering.

However the prototype is still in the early stages and is currently in the process of further clinical studies and gaining government funding.
