Gives "Don't fuck with me." new meaning

Rape Trap
the condom-like device bristling with internal hooks designed to snare rapists ... hooks onto a rapist during penetration and must be surgically removed ... the rape trap would be so painful for a rapist that it would disable him immediately, enabling his victim to escape; but would cause no long-term physical damage and could not injure the woman.

Some women's activists call the device regressive, putting the onus on women to address a male problem ... it "goes back to the concept of chastity belts" and would incite injured rapists to kill their victims.

This is no chastity belt. I would not want to keep a volunatry tool from all women simply because we would rather change the behavior of some men. I worry about inciting violence, but if it truly is extremely painful, it would give the vitim time to get away.
