To The Man Who Put Tabasco Sauce In A Condom, You Deserve Better

To The Man Who Put Tabasco Sauce In A Condom, You Deserve Better

Why one man shouldn't be at fault for protecting himself.

Recently I was listening to Heather McDonald's "Juicy Scoop" podcast and she brought up "sperm stealing."

When those words came out of my speaker I laughed; of course, I've heard of people stealing sperm... who hasn't seen Gone Girl, You're the Worst or Jane the Virgin? Seriously. Now I am very behind in the podcast but I jump around to hear who I want because she has such a wide variety of guests. So this topic may be old to you, but new to me.

But in real life, it's something you never want to hear about. But what did one guy do to stop this piracy of seamen? Put Tabasco sauce in the condom before he threw it away. In this case, it was a random hookup, this was not a woman he was going to marry OR bare any children with. He had heard from a friend of these women who would do the deed, run to the bathroom and then get the used condom to try and get pregnant. The past victims to these women were wealthy men who were just in the city for the night, never expecting to leave with a baby on the way.

So, back to the story.

One night he meets a woman and they hit it off, they get intimate throughout the night, which eventually leads to them going "home" with each other (a close by hotel), and have consensual sex; after he goes to the bathroom to freshen up he realizes that he doesn't want to be that person who is trapped in a pregnancy so he does what any man would do. He looks in the bathroom closet, pushes the four pack of toilet paper over and grabs his favorite condiment... Tabasco... He puts a few drops in the condom and then throws it away.

After returning to the bedroom, the girl then gets up to also "freshen up" up in the bathroom.


Now I personally don't know what was going on in this mans head but maybe he was sitting there, with his readers, dim lamp, a nice book and a little grin. Or maybe he was thinking, "This girl wouldn't do that, it was just a precaution."


A few minutes pass and the man hears a loud scream from the bathroom. He runs in there to find her crying, holding her privates and if it were me, in the shower trying like hell to calm the burning. The man took her to the hospital probably hoping to never see her again, but he did... When her lawyers called him to inform him that he is being sued by the woman because her uterus was affected by the tabasco sauce... obviously. They are saying that because the sperm was thrown away, and in the trash that is was no longer his property and she was free to do what she wants with it.

I haven't been able to find out if the woman won the lawsuit or not so I'm going to say what I think should happen. THIS WOMAN SHOULD BE IN JAIL and the man shouldn't even have to worry about it.

Here's the breakdown:

This woman is young, attractive, and probably very smart. She went into with the mindset that she was going to impregnate herself, trap him, and make him pay child support because he had money.

This in itself should be illegal.

The man put tabasco sauce in his used condom and threw it away.

The keyword here being HIS. It came from his body, it, before and after, belongs to him; so why can't he do what he wants with it.

She tried to impregnate herself with the condom.

WELLLLLLLL this goes back to the illegal aspect. How is it legal to do this?! It's not like they were married and it was the only way they could have a baby, this man wore a condom to prevent STDs and pregnancy.

Now she's suing him.

HOW?! He didn't tell you to go in there and get the sperm.


The whole, "Condom doesn't belong to him after he throws it away," is a bunch of crap.

I'm sorry but when in those 10 minutes did the condom magically belong to her? Was there a ritual, a custody battle? Well, I guess not, because she didn't get pregnant. And thank God for that.

But what about the people who were successful and are now forcing these men to raise the kids? Why is it that they are all getting away with that but when a man goes to protect his guys, he ruined this girls chance at being a mother.

Why I Spend So Much Time With My Boyfriend

And I love it!

Many people think that spending too much time with your significant other is a bad thing. I think that wanting to spend time with them is a blessing. Don't get me wrong, we do not spend every waking minute together. We make sure that we save time for our friends and family, but in the end, we cherish our time together.

He brings out the best in me. When I first met my boyfriend, I knew he was something special. I didn't know what it was, but I knew that it would be important someday. I found out that when I am with him, I am an all-around happier person. I look at things in different ways, and I now know a whole new world of people. He has helped me overcome obstacles that have been holding me back for quite some time.

We enjoy each others company. I can't even begin to tell you how many times we have just sat in silence simply knowing that you are in the company of someone who loves you is comforting. He makes things that would usually be boring a lot more fun. When we do homework together, he makes the work seem like it's not work, and things like a simple trip to Walmart ends up being a comedy show.

We are best friends. Many people say that they are best friends with their significant other. For us, it's true. I can tell him anything. There is no hiding things in our relationship; we come right out and say what we want to say.

He pushes me to succeed. Whether it is with weight loss or homework, he holds me accountable. When I start a new workout, he keeps me on track to be whom I want to be. We make sure that we put homework before going out and that helps us in the long run. Giving up that pizza can be easy when you are spending time with someone you love.

He makes life seem not so hard. College can be hard and make life difficult. It seems that I always have something new happening or another meeting to attend. When I get stressed or overwhelmed, he makes sure that I take the time to put into perspective what really matters and focus on that. And when that fails, we go get McDonald's.

He supports me. He has never once told me that one of my ideas was stupid or out of reach. Whenever something new comes up that I think would be exciting, he is the first one to rally behind me and let me know that it is a good idea (even if it's not).

I love him. Love is a strong word, but I can honestly say I have never felt like this before. Between everything that he does for me, I do just as much for him simply because I love seeing him happy. Spending so much time together isn't hard to do because we love each other. If somewhere down the road we decide to split ways, I will still love him and he will still love me. That will never go away.

Is Social Media Killing Romance?

In a modern era filled with technology, are the communication outlets we rely on destroying our ability to connect?

I have always been a girl that has been stereotypically obsessed with romance novels and movies. Honestly, I enjoy the concept of romance in and of itself. I have always dreamed of a passionate, deep romance of my own complete with a meet-cute, dates, and affection. However, it seems as though the concept of romance has skewed dramatically as social media continues to flourish.

So many romance movies are shifting to acknowledge how time-consuming social media is in teenagers lives. Even so, social media seems to be such a minuscule part of the relationships while, in reality, social media outlets tend to be a major form of communication in our society.

It seems as though our entire lives are digital and relationships are no exceptions. Meeting people the "old fashioned way" is almost obsolete now thanks to dating apps and other mediums of communication. We seem to be taking away the basis of relationships; intimacy and connection.

Additionally, social media has been detrimental, especially pertaining to self-esteem and self-image. Social media allow self-scrutinization to become the norm. Comparison is almost a reflex while scrolling through social media so why would romance and relationships be any different? Social media can create ridiculous expectations for relationships. Apps like Instagram are a media for sharing the best of your life, so everyone seems to have a perfect life on there. These expectations and comparisons seem to be a deteriorating factor for relationships.

Another phenomenon that I have noticed, thanks to social media, is that meeting people is easier than ever. This is not a bad thing per se. However, since it is so easy, it seems that all the effort is gone. Flirting with someone who "slid into your DMs" is exponentially easier than flirting with someone in real life. Apps like Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram are simple methods to communicate and therefore, our communication has become simple.

Hookup culture is another thing that has become increasingly popular with the rise of social media. According to statistics, correlation does not imply causation but, at least to me, it seems that there are entirely too many aspects in common for them to not be related. Since communication is exponentially easier, so have "booty calls." Late night texts. or "snaps" have diminished the chase and allowed for actual relationships to be foreign to our generation.

In conclusion, social media has provided us with an unbelievable amount of benefits. However, it also may be draining our generation of connection and emotion. It seems as though social media has driven us into an age of simplicity and complacency.
