Porcine Zona Pellucida Vaccine:
Why in the heck don't we (as humans) have this option? Yes, it wouldn't work for immunocompromised persons, and 90% is not incredibly excellent. Look at diaphragms, though. Success rates between 83% and 94%. Condoms are between 85% and 98% and withdrawl is between 72% and 96%.

Here's a table form of that info, presented as number of women who get pregnant out of every 100 using that method. A version of it is in every package of The Pill. The first time I read it I was shocked to see that withdrawal actually was so effective.

But! As I found out the hard way (har har har) condoms protect against more than just pregancy and STD's. Turns out my body is ultra-sensitive to sexual intercourse and I get UTI's when I don't make my partner use a condom. Condom = yes, and I have no problems. There are more issues with sex than pregnancy and AIDS. They're not as serious, but they still affect your life.

Urinating after intercourse didn't help?

Nope, because my body is special. And by that I mean my body is stupid. I had a choice: use condoms and never get a UTI or take antibiotics after intercourse and wait for my body to grow accustomed to them, get infections again, and go on increasingly higher doses/types of antibiotic until the bacteric on my body is so immune to antibiotics that I die of a sinus infection. Which would you choose?

Sinus infection, totally!

I mean: Latex!

(Because, if you don't die from a sinus infection, you get to live longer, which means you get to have more sex!)
