DESIGN YOUR DREAM BIRTH CONTROL AND SAFER SEX METHODS!
Here's your chance to get crafty, creative, and overstep any limitations imposed upon us by sexuality-reality to design and describe your fantasy birth control method!
With all the various birth control options available (with more and more being invented), you're bound to find one that works for you. If you're still looking for The One (birth control method) for you, we invite you to play (Birth Control) Bingo with us and invite a buddy or two, namely The Buddy System. And if your best laid plans fail while you are, well, getting laid, we've got you covered, too, with Emergency Contraception. Still, for all the options out there, I believe there's still a lot to be left desired of birth control.
What do you think? Your fantasy birth control could be an improvement upon a current option or it could be something entirely new. Whether you're female, male or something else all together, please describe and design your ideal safer sex-contraceptive equipment and method!
[I personally wish I could fend off STIs and unwanted pregnancies with mind control; however, just as abstinence education may be a well-intended-but-huge-failure, I think I'll stick to reality for now. But where there's a will, there's a way, and maybe one day your BC dream may become a reality!]
I want to be able to basically have a little switch where I can close or leave open the opening to my cervix during sex, or one where I can open or close my fallopian tubes for a given month to either let out an egg if I want a pregnancy, or keep the egg from being released.

I want the same birth control options as now, but all flavoured like milk chocolate with hazelnuts in where possible.
As I haven't had any partnered sex yet, I can't really contribute much to this thread, I just know I want chocolate. Milk chocolate. With hazelnuts in.
More seriously, I would like a pill that you can take without it taking away your actual desire to engage in sexual activity or ability to orgasm, and that doesn't give you headaches. I would like for spermicides to not upset one's genital PH balance (which causes thrush), and I would like condoms that vibrate and have attachments... dreams are fun aren't they. Not like those disturbing nightmares I have where meerkats take over the world and make dogs stand on their hind legs more often than is comfortable, and then genetically engineered tomatoes fling themselves at political protesters in a suicidal manner.
If you could fend off STIs with mind control, you might be able to induce them with mind control...
