“Dear Baby Jesus, please allow the Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance injection pass FDA regulation. I know you are busy deciding on the outcome of sports and awards ceremonies, but it would be super freaking awesome if you could help us out with a birth control option for men.

The brightest, shiniest bit about this method of birth control? It lasts for 10 years!
