Well its about time we heard about more promising birth control options for gentlemen.  Check out this article to learn about a birth control gel that is currently being studied.  Of course the gel won't do anything to ward of sexually transmitted infections, but I like the idea of women and men being able to do more to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Experts are still researching this very question. So far they know it reduces the chance of pregnancy, but the gel hasn't existed long enough for long term study. I'm wondering what they'll consider "long term study" though.

And you know what else I wonder? How come it is a gel and not a pill or shot? That seemed like an interesting way to administer it.
