Male contraceptive pill: Are SA men ready?

29 February 2012, 09:21

"Would men take a contraceptive pill?"


I recently  posted this question on an international online blog and the response I got was phenomenal. It seems that men, like the women of the 60's, are so ready for power over their own fertility. 85% of commentators thought it was a good idea.

Comments received from users were: "I would take it in a heartbeat",  "i'd take 100 a day, then keep 5 more in my pocket to eat in front of chicks to prove we dont need a condom" and "Finally! I think overall, women have proven that they cannot be trusted with this responsiblity".

Now the question is that, with South Africa's obvious gender issues, would South African men be as willing as the international men to take responsibility of their fertility? 

Would this technological innovation be successful in a South African context?
