After sexual intercourse, all women experience "Flowback." This "Flowback" causes a woman to have dried and or invisible traces of semen in her undergarments long after every sexual encounter.

Ha-hah!

So, you can check on your husband's fidelity by looking for his sperm in his unmentionables?

It isn't safe to masturbate ever again gents.

Except for the ones that used a condom.

On Sunday morning he left the house and told you he was going to play golf. Then, when he came home and took a shower, you grabbed his underwear and did the test. If you detected semen, what is he going to say?

"You did WHAT with my underwear, you fucking psycho?"

Well, you know, if you just keep your wife and daughter locked in the basement all the time, you don't have to worry about semen that isn't yours in their undies!

Waitasec, how does a potentially jilted husband not know that it's not his own semen that he's detected on his lovely's panties? I can't imagine that this $49.95 test includes DNA comparison technology. Useless rubbish.

...invisible traces of dried semen can easily be detected for up to 2 years or even longer.

Sure. "I know she's been cheating. The semen couldn't be mine, because we haven't had sex in three years."

i would hope that if your significant other is having unprotected sex with a man, that the cheating itself shouldn't bee too high up on your list of concerns.

safe sex, people! safe sex!

...and i guess you ought to have not had sex with your SO for up to two years, since that's how long it's detectable. lame.

This isn't just creepy, it's a waste of money. You can detect semen residue with a $5 black light. Doesn't anyone here watch local news segments about filthy hotel rooms?

If your mate has -really- been sleeping around, you'll also want the optional Seaman Detection Kit. It detects unique chemical signatures found in military khaki and winter blue uniforms. For an additional $60, the Platinum model detects parrot feathers and comes with a UV light to find peg marks on your floor.

“Check Mate” jeez, who’s the paranoid freak who comes up with these names. Like there’s some intricate machiavellian drama going on within your home, but this product will - in the manner of a grandmaster strategist - manipulate and trap your spouse or daughter into chastity. Ha ha! You can’t have sex without me knowing about it! Acknowlege my victory!

"My father used CheckMate to test my panties for semen residue and learned that I was having sex with my boyfriend, so he disowned me. At that point, I figured that since my father knew I was sexually active, I may as well make the best of the situation. That's how I began my lucrative career in hard-core pornography. Thanks, CheckMate!"

2 years? bah, read on....
"Some studies have shown traces of semen remaining on unwashed material for almost 40 years!"

And it gets better, they have a "how to catch a cheater" section-

Place a digital voice recorder in the glove box of his car. It will allow you to listen to both his cell phone and in-car conversations. Sure, it's a violation of his privacy, but hey, he is violating your trust!

I don't care if she's having sex. But, if it goes positive, that means, as mentioned above, she's having unprotected sex.

That, as her parent, I would be interested in.

Jesus. It's not like trace amounts semen in a dude's drawers is a binary state, had-sex or didn't-have-sex. You dribble before you shoot, and all that. I'd even go so far as to say it would be near impossible to find a pair of undies that have been worn for a day that didn't contain trace amounts. We are guys, we get turned on by just about anything.

I find the following wording exceedingly creepy:
the infidelity of a cheating spouse or of a sexually active teen.
So, a sexually active teen is by definition "cheating"? Is she cheating on her parents, then? On God?
posted by treepour at 12:49 PM on June 12, 2007


Actually I heard that Hollywood is making an updated version of Othello and the checkmate [TM] is the device that Iago uses to supposedly prove Desdemona's infidelity. Of course we the audience know that it's actually his own spoo. The masturbation scene of the golf course is ripe with symbolism.

And when you confront her with the fact that you've been "sniffing" her underpants for semen, you expect her reaction would be... what?

I hope you have a good criminal defense attorney ("Yes, sir. Now, please explain again exactly what you were doing with your daughter's panties?") and a lot of money for therapy. She'll need some couch time after you "CheckMate" her.

You could, you know, just ask her. Or check if she needs some condoms, and offer to buy them if she's a bit too inhibited or something. I mean, speaking theoretically and all.

I gotta tell this story...

A coworker of mine owns a piece of rural property that was once part of a larger parcel. The previous owner had built two houses on it, reasonable close together, and when the property was split up the houses also were.

In rural areas with poor drainage and clay, it's common to use a 'septic lagoon', which really is a piss (and other liquids) pond. The two houses share one, based on their original single-owner, and part of the deal for splitting the land.

One day my coworker decides to meet up with his neighbour to do a quick inspection of fencing, etc. They find a few condoms floating on the surface.

"Heh heh. Lookie there!" exclaims the neighbour.

My coworker responds.

"Well, I'm snipped. I don't use them. You're a long-haul trucker, with a wife and two daughters at home."

The neighbours face falls, and he's extremely perturbed. Does he assume that his wife is cheating? His daughters are screwing at home? His wife is allowing his daughters to screw at home?

I wish I was listening in on dinner conversation that evening.

I hope you have a good criminal defense attorney

There's always Al Stokke, the defense attorney who's appeared in a couple of Metafilter threads in recent months. The right to test one's daughter's panties for semen traces seems like a cause he could get behind.
posted by jayder at 11:14 PM on June 12, 2007


I'm not sure what planet some of you live on, but a parent most certainly has the right to inspect their child's undergarments. For heaven's sake, in 99% of households one of the parents would launder them.

Good criminal defense attorney? Please, dial down the drama about 200%.

As I said at first, I realize that it could come across as creepy, but still, given the chances for pregnancy and for venereal disease, I think it might be worth considering if you had a daughter.

It's not like you'd have to take the panties into a family discussion and lay them on the dining room table. You could simply say "I know you're having sex, and I suspect you're having unprotected sex. Here are the consequences of that, and here is what you can do to protect yourself."

How is that some sort of whackjob approach that would require your daughter to have years of therapy and possible criminal investigation into your home?

Some people are so reactionary around here it makes discussion of any topic almost impossible.

You could simply say "I know you're having sex, and I suspect you're having unprotected sex. Here are the consequences of that, and here is what you can do to protect yourself."

And when she says "No, I'm not", what's your next move? At some point if you want to move beyond the idea that you're merely paranoid about your daughter's sex life, you'll have to provide the "proof". And at that point, many people would think you've traversed the line between "concerned father" and "pervert".

And you think the comment about criminal prosecution is high drama? Keep in mind that in most states, Child Protective Services (or the equivalent) have a mandate to intervene first, and ask questions later. If you're testing your daughter's panties for sperm, and your daughter or someone else in the family brings that to their attention (probably in an extremely pissed off state), I can guarantee you that authorities are going to be asking what else you might possibly be doing. In this day and age, it really isn't a stretch.

Asking your daughter about her sex life is one thing. Testing her underwear for sperm residue is on the otherside of creepy, and just a bad idea all the way around.
posted by mstefan at 9:49 AM on June 13, 2007


I can understand wanting to know if your underage daughter is having sex.

But a parent with any sense of their teenage daughter's personal dignity would not decide, "I need to find out if sperm is oozing out of my teenaged daughter's vagina."

But if parents are going to pursue such a pathetic investigation, maybe the company that makes these tests can add a feature that tests the skid-marks for drug residue.
