 New Male Birth Control Device is an Implant With On/Off Switch

More recent studies looked to stop the flow of sperm entirely during intercourse. Though research has been making progress in many ways, the methods are still merely thoughts.

However, thanks to German scientists Clemens Bimek, the solution may have been found. The device is essentially an on-off switch for the penis.

It simply redirects semen back into the testicles. The benefit of the Bimek SLV is the ease of turning it on and off. A life changing decision can be made or not made with the flick of a switch.

"Male contraception quite often means getting a vasectomy," the device's creators said. "It's a difficult decision to make. What if you're not quite finished planning your family? With us, there's no need to ask this question. The Bimek SLV allows you to be sterile when you want to. The switch that toggles your fertility is controlled by you. You decide."

The procedure for implant the Bimek is expected to take under 30 minutes.
