RAPEX! It's the APEX of dick-mangling!

So I was idly Googling "vagina dentata" this morning* -- because that's what I do of a morning, I idly Google "vagina dentata" -- and I found this.

Now, I do not normally discuss any aspects of sexual assault in this space, for the same reason I do not go around swatting at wasp's nests with a sawed-off broom handle. But I do have to question the practicality of the thing -- as a critic in the article notes, you would have to wear it every minute of your life in anticipation of being raped, which strikes me as overpreparing a bit. As a deterrent, it seems like it's up there with putting your money in a balloon and keeping it up your ass.

But strictly from the product-marketing standpoint, I have to say bravo to the name RAPEX, which combines a high-tech, power-blast kind of feel with a jaunty, easy-to-remember brand image. Well done!

(SIDE NOTE: I seriously spent like 15 minutes trying to decide on an appropriate icon to use with this entry.)

*: It was research for an article. I swear this on Sigmund Freud's grave.
