>An early prototypical anti-rape female tampon was invented in late 2000 by Jaap Haumann, a South African man, for the purpose of preventing rape. Haumann's device was designed to resemble a tampon for ease of insertion, and consisted of a hard cylindrical plastic core containing a tensioned spring blade primed to slice when pressed against by the tip of a penis. Following activation, a portion of the tip of the penis would be removed, in effect performing a minor penectomy.

kek it's illegal to get one without permission from the police but I see that shops sell sprays that are basically weaker versions of the real pepper spray. So since they sell it I assume someone carries pepper spray but it's not something they announce to everyone.
