fake dick

for females to avert rape
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

a synthetic look alike of a penis that can be stuck over the vagina whenever women feel unsafe.

the rapists would be turned down the moment they see the penis...in fact she should voluntarily show it off even before the rapist forcefully strips her

plus if she pretends to be a 'he' with some well rehearsed body language that should be enough to save her in that moment.

upgraded version: the soft fake dick is inflatable and she can use it as a dildo :)

       Erm, the trans community already has a high incidence of being murdered, so it would be going from a dangerous situation to much more dangerous one.

       Better to show them a real gun.

       Okay, so this is what I thought it would be...   

       I really doubt it would work even once.

       How about a real dick from the last guy who tried it.

       The best rape prevention techniques differ according to who's compiled the statistics. I've made two summary examples to demonstrate the contrast:   

       FBI (2009):
1. Martial arts training, esp. Brazilian Ju-Jitsu or Krav Maga.
2. Education and awareness (i.e. avoid Central Park at night, don't go to parties if you don't know and trust the host, don't date anyone ever, etc.)
3. Stun guns/pepper spray

       AMA (current):
1. Education and awareness.
2. Avoidance (i.e. never leave your home or answer the doorbell).
3. Rape whistles/car alarm key fobs

       I found no mention of penile prostheses.

       How did they collect statistics on how many rapes have been prevented by education or avoidance? Poll women who haven't been raped and ask why?
DIYMatt, Nov 08 2013

       This is a gross oversimplification of the actual language they use, but the FBI compiles statistics from 1st-degree attempted rape and sexual assault cases in all 50 States and Puerto Rico. The AMA do not cite their sources.

       old school chastity belt would probably work better

       Of course the best rape prevent method is the old aim-and-squeeze technique of self defense. Nothing says "I'm not in the mood." like a 38 slug to the chest.
