I just read this article and like to share what i learned If somebody already posted this, kindly delete at once. Here's the complete info:

In 1980s, when researcher Deborah Anderson of Harvard Medical School's birth- control laboratory discovered that "Coca Cola douches" were being used as a type of contraception at the all-girl Catholic boarding school she had attended in Puerto Rico, she decided to test it.

For the study, Anderson, medical student Sharee Umpierre and gynaecologist, Joe Hill mixed four different types of Coke with sperm in test tubes.

A minute later, they found that all sperm were dead in the Diet Coke, however, 41pct were still swimming in the just-introduced New Coke.

"Coca-Cola douches had become a part of contraceptive folklore during the 1950s and 1960s, when other birth-control methods were hard to come by," New Scientist quoted Anderson, as saying.

"It was believed that the carbonic acid in Coke killed sperm, and the method came with its own 'shake and shoot applicator'" - the classic Coke bottle," she added.



This is one of stufies that have been awarded the 2008 Ig Nobel prize.

Maybe a prolonged period of time would leave you infertile.

No, It needs to be shot in the vagina after the guy shoots his cum inside her.

It's true, since carbonic acid kills sperm cells.

Coke would've been perfect, but the problem is the effectivity of coke relies hugely upon the shoot range of Coke, once the sperm cells are in the uterus, Not even Coke can reach them, they'd prolly hear the coke rush in the vagina, but there is no chance that the coke can reach them then.

nno it doesn't work like that if coke kills the sperm it doesn't kill the sperm count so even if you drink coke it doesn't kill the amount it can reproduce

So, we all need: a girl, can of Coke, hotel room, and a water gun to test it out for sure?

It is already proven, the reason why it really isn't effective is because Coke doesn't act like a homing missile that chases sperm cells, It can kill yes, But chase or follow? No.
