From Jezebel: Stephen Colbert Reveals His Genius Plan to Start Giving Men Transurethral Ultrasounds

By Juliana Jiménez

For all the fans of the transvaginal ultrasound bill, we bring you the sequel, surely it will be just as popular!

Although we do know these two don’t require the same amount of discomfort… Maybe the equivalent would be inserting your penis in a cold, metallic, all-seeying robot vagina? Yes, that seems more adequate.

Yet, it’s not quite the same… there is something inherently “invasive” in how women experience sex, as Simone de Beauvoir says in The Second Sex, because a foreign object is intruding into your very being, whereas for the man the penis is an extension of the being.

In any case, Colbert is spot on about the whole “potential human being” with the sperm and the male birth control pill. And let’s remember gals and guys, it’s been “50 YEARS” since the female birth control pill was made available to the public. And we’re still talking about it like it’s a huge deal. Like it’s still the 1950s.
