Popular? A male birther control pill would be phenomenal!

/ female birther control, as well

I don't know if it will be popular, I just think it's unlikely. It is far easier to regulate the manufacture of one ovum a month than ten million sperm a day.

And then the whole STD thing, too.

Beyond it's obvious use of removing one of the negative factors discouraging free love, It is nice that men can protect themselves from accidental pregnancy and the expense of paying for a child they are allowed to see once a month.

I'm in favor of this new drug.

The "Male" Pill will help reduce unwanted pregnancies for couples devoted to each other. The "Double Whammy", a condom with a male pill chaser will help prevent unwanted pregnancies and STD. Nothing is fool proof and two is better than one!!!!

True story: A company in California had a male birth control pill developed but market studies indicated that women would not trust men to take it so they dropped it. Makes sense since the woman is the one who gets pregnant. Women want to be in charge of their own consequences.

My guess is that the male pill may lead to a new uptick in STD diseases. SOME men have been careful to use condoms or other simliar birth control methods to avoid liability and support issues if his partner were to become pregnant; and as a side benefit a means of preventing STD's. With the male pill, the need for condoms, etc., will not seem so appealing, and increase the likliehood of not using any protections from STD spread.

Still won't prevent STD's....

The best birth control is to just keep it in your pants. Have enough respect for youself and not stick it where it doesn't belong. Just be smart, you don't need to constantly be looking for a pill to solve your problems.

Only to those who also carry man bags and use mousse' and make up. Real men just say no to un-solicited sex.

Depends on the side effects.

I think a safe, effective male birth control pill--in contrast to the female birth control pill--would be 100% funded by taxpayer dollars, and available free, for the asking, at grocery stores, convenience stores, bars, nightclubs, restaurants, sports bars, hospitals, libraries, auto dealerships, movie theaters, and flower shops.
