Somewhere in the world right now, there is a man who is about to make a lady pregnant unintentionally. Reason? When the man’s ‘switch’ goes on and he’s got to tremble, the man has to tremble!

I know some of you can pose the inevitable question, “Kwani he doesn’t know that sex can lead to a pregnancy?”

Frankly, the truth is we actually don’t.

This is why some German nerd may be onto something with the discovery of the ultimate switch.

Have you heard of Bimek SLV; the so-called sperm switch? The device apparently allows men to block sperm from mixing with semen before ejaculation. So, a man can actually do what he has to do without fear or worry that he’ll be adding another digit to the world’s population.

Bimek SLV is reputed to offer men the freedom to decide whether to have a child with just the push of a button. The beauty of it is that you don’t have to resort to the permanent option of vasectomy.

The company that manufactures this tiny gadget may easily have its way with the European market where liberalism is the norm.

One thing is for sure though, while the gadget can prevent pregnancy, it offers no defence against sexually transmitted infections.

And you may still need a condom to keep your health; which may still not be 100 per cent effective.
