Condoms Never FDA-Approved for Sodomy


By Dr. Judith ReismanBarbWire guest contributor

A class action lawsuit by AIDS victims and their loved ones would rock the world; a suit based on the fact that condom pushers have for years dispensed false, deceptive claims about how the product protects – or fails to protect – the health of sex participants. The reality is that condoms are manufactured and approved every day for natural, vaginal sex, not anal “sex.”  They are not effectively designed to protect from disease those people who engage in sodomy.

Such a lawsuit should target the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Planned Parenthood and a myriad of teachers and school systems, too many to count, that have taught that anal “sex” (traditionally termed “sodomy” or “buggery” under British-based legal codes) as not so different than natural coitus.

The result of a class action suit should be the requirement of a label, a la cigarette packs, that states: “This condom has never been approved by the FDA for penile/anal intercourse.”

Due to the lies that have told, people who practiced sodomy are under the tragically mistaken notion that a condom is effective protection from disease. Those who have believed this lie and have contracted AIDS or an STD (and the loved ones of those who’ve lost their lives) have a cause of legal action.

Take the Hawaii public schools, for instance. Republican Bob McDermott, a member of the Hawaii House of Representatives, cited a “federally funded sex education program currently in use in 12 of the state’s public schools … created by the University of Hawaii and Planned Parenthood … [that] defines the anus a ‘genital.’”

“Genitals are sexual reproductive organs,” McDermott told EAGnews, “and the a– isn’t that.”

According to a report McDermott authored, the curriculum, dubbed “The Pono Choices,” defines the term “oral sex” to include “mouth on genitalia,” with the anus included among “genitalia.”

McDermott points out that the curriculum states: “Both vaginal sex with a condom and anal sex with a condom are rated as low risk activities.”

The school program, more aptly named “Porno Choices,” diverges wildly from what the U.S. Food and Drug Administration studies have found regarding penile-rectal anal “sex.” In fact, the FDA, even after looking at AIDS studies for roughly 40 years, has NEVER – that is never, not ever – approved a condom for use in oral/anal or penile-rectal anal “sex.”

McDermott notes: “The Federal Drug Administration warns Americans, on its website, that anal sex is ‘simply too dangerous to practice.’” Pono Choices has received nearly $1 million in federal funding from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Advertisements for experimental anal condoms affirm that standard condoms were never tested or approved by the FDA. The ad reads:

“The standard rolled latex condoms have never been ‘tested or FDA approved for anal use.’”

To reach the market, the Origami Anal Condom must be reviewed by the World Health Organization, the C-Mark (EU) and the FDA to meet safety standards. After clinical trials this year to evaluate its performance and safety, it is expected to reach the market in late 2015, pending regulatory approvals.

The “CDC National AIDS Hotline Training Bulletin” dated April 27, 1995, contained the following from Consumer Reports magazine:

Some condom boxes specifically indicate they are designed for vaginal sex only. Are they not effective for anal sex? Which condoms should be used for anal sex?

For the most part, FDA has only evaluated data on condoms tested in vaginal sex. There have been several published studies and surveys which indicate condom breakage and slippage rates may be higher during anal sex. However, these studies are only retrospective. Whatever the breakage rate, it may be reduced by use of a water-based or silicone- based lubricant.

“Whatever the breakage rate?!” The Hawaii public schools’ recommendation of a prophylactic for activity for which it is not designed, without warning children that it is unreliable for protection, is shocking.

Even the CDC fact sheet does not warn that the condom is unapproved as safe for anal “sex,” but groups the activity with vaginal and oral sex.

Planned Parenthood implicitly and explicitly has promoted anal “sex” to children and adults for years.

“If you choose to have vaginal or anal intercourse, use condoms every time. They can reduce the risk of HPV. They are not as effective against HPV as they are against other infections such as chlamydia and HIV. But they greatly reduce the risk of HPV infection. …”

Parents in Hawaii should well remember those responsible for giving their children false information about protection from STDs and AIDS. If their children acquire deadly diseases as a result of this propaganda and the deliberate withholding of key information, not only should Hawaiian school districts be sued, but also everyone  in the Hawaiian schools who had a hand in disseminating this false information.

      You’re not a very bright person are you? For starters, this article only makes sense if you believe only gay men get AIDS and only gay men are having anal sex.

      • thisoldspouse

        I’m 100 times brighter than you, a fact hater.

        • Former Representative Elliott

          You’ve proven that, by your rhetoric, to be completely untrue.

        From the CDC’s FACT sheet (for thinking people only):

        Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) represent approximately 2% of the United States population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV. In 2010, young MSM (aged 13-24 years) accounted for 72% of new HIV infections among all persons aged 13 to 24, and 30% of new infections among all MSM. At the end of 2010, an estimated 489,121 (56%) persons living with an HIV diagnosis in the United States were MSM or MSM-IDU.

        Gay men are at increased risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), like syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, and CDC recommends that all sexually active MSM be tested annually for these infections.

        Is the CDC “homophobic?”

        • Rebecca Gardner

          Your reply has absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote.

    • Former Representative Elliott

      The right wing has indicated strongly that it is anti-science, anti-medicine. There is no doubt about it.

        It takes FAITH to believe something is a gazillion years old.

  • Halou

    Until such time as appropriate condoms are approved for the market (which the article says may happen as early as next year) then I would sooner tolerate people using flawed protection instead of no protection at all.

  • milwaukeeprogressiveexaminer

    There there might be a greater rate of STD infection among anal sex, does not logically make homosexuality bad. STDs can be cured, and I fully expect medical science to have vaccines for them. What will the arguments against gay rights be then? It’s very simple if someone does not want to have sex with someone of the same sex, don’t do it.

    • Martin Rizley

      Not all STDs can be cured. According to one source, at least four are incurable today: Hepatitis B, genital herpes, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which causes AIDS. Condoms can tear or inadvertently come off during sexual relations, so the individual engaging in promiscuous sexual relations who thinks that they are engaging in a ‘safe’ activity because they are using a condom is self-deceived. It shows how sin blinds the mind, for people to think that promiscuous sex is ever a ‘safe’ activity. That’s like saying Russian Roulette is a safe game because only chamber is loaded; the other six are empty. Since you have only a one in six likelihood of shooting your brains out, it’s a relatively ‘safe’ game to play. Yeah, right!

    Absolutely heartbreaking, and we thank you for bringing this inconvenient truth to our attention. As an aside, just like photos of dismembered babies expose the moral horror of what abortion really is, the soul-rending caption photo puts the lie to the happy, healthy gay lifestyle claim.
