You can also put on Scroguard (TM) hours before the main event... so you can avoid awkward interruptions!
But perhaps not awkward questions.

Interestingly it also fits most standard vacuum cleaner attachments.

Past a certain level of prophylaxis maybe it's just better to fuck robots.

For the locked out and disappointed:

The video on Youtube is "age-restricted" and requires a Google login. The embed on the Scroguard website doesn't.

You are not missing much, it looks like a very low budget version of the tiawanese tv company's stuff.

Yeah, I'm sure a quick rinse in the sink is gonna kill those viruses, and that this thing isn't going to be crawling with them after several reuses, spreading them worse than ever...

Nothing says venereal disease like a stiff, hairless, sterile 3D model from 1997 with no genitals.

I'm disturbed by the not-anatomically-correct models used to advertise this thing. Perhaps the real target market for this product is Ken doll fetishists?

I thought Scroguard was a small town in South Wales. Oh, how wrong I was.

Oh god, I hope not. Nobody should have to watch that thing, let alone remember it.

It seems like payment for this should only be accepted in Linden dollars.

Also, was "Crotchguard" already taken, or were they advised that 3M might sue them?

"scrotumblue" should, er, cover it, no?

if your scrotum has been blue for over 4 hours please consult your doctor immediately

So many thoughts. Wearing it, sweatily, for hours in advance. What your partner's response would be to the surprise of latex underpants with a penis hole. Just how awkward that interruption would be. How any hair anywhere would be caught and pulled. What this could possibly prevent, especially with the wash-and-reuse scenario.

I beg to differ. Gay porn was a sea of shiny shaved twinkie nightmares in 1997 (in keeping with the horror standard set by the atrocious eighties). I've been making sacrifices to the mighty Baal for decades to get bush back, to say nothing of balls that look like balls are supposed to look instead of like some sort of ostrich leather coin purse.

So is this really a real thing? I still can't work it out. It can't possibly be a real thing, can it?

Scrogard T-shirts would be cool.
posted by surplus at 3:42 PM on November 3, 2014


They might make more money off the t-shirts. The creators of the Scroguard could be playing nth-dimensional chess with a mastery of multi-layered irony.

I would buy this in a heartbeat if they carried the joke through to having fully realized packaging with display graphics and instruction manuals and manufacturer's rebates and cross-promotions for other kooky shit, but because my search for "scroguard unboxing" came up with nada it's too expensive for what would likely turn out to be a poorly realized gag.

Also it's "sold out" (according to other YouTube reaction vids) so I'm pretty sure the product itself doesn't exist.

Some excellent questions from the FAQ...

What does Scroguard™ smell like?

My Scroguard™ arrived a bit sticky. Is this normal?

Who are Scroguard™’s competitors?

Whomever made this video was probably huffing "Crotchguard".
posted by Catblack at 7:08 PM on November 3, 2014


This looks almost exactly like a latex strapon harness. I'll let you Google that on your own.

if nothing else I hope that this catapults the usage of "scro" as a slang term for "scrotum" into the mainstream

And what if you and/or your partner decides it's time for a little assplay? What then? HUH?!?!?!

Have you seen the product reviews? They're almost as good as the infomercial.

"A couple of years after I became active in the H community, I dated a guy who had one of the most severe cases of OCD I have personally seen. While he had been diagnosed with both HSV and HPV, and posed a much greater threat to me, than I did to him, he still acted like sex was a monumental risk to him. I had not realized his “phobia” of sex until we had dated for a while and the relationship took a natural, intimate turn.
The first time we were intimate, he acted like I had the plague and that his only objective was for him to get in, get off and get in the shower. I kid you not!
...
When I received a Scroguard in the mail, as a review sample, my thoughts immediately turned to that boyfriend from SO long ago."

this reminds me of the recent question about keeping hand sanitizer next to the bed for sexy times

If you really wanted to be sure that the untrustworthy person you're for some reason having intimate carnal knowledge of won't inflict any of their bodily flora and ejecta upon you, you'd do like I do and fully rhino-line your entire body.

Also if you wore it backwards it would make a sort of poop nozzle / crap fountain.

you know, when plastic woman pulled the pants off plastic man to reveal the scro-thing, my mind just went into overdrive imagining the dialogue there.

I mean, I would start laughing hysterical nervous laughter, but just imagine what Dorothy Parker might say.

It needs to have a port on the back for anal sex. Then you could get groups of people going and form human scrotipedes.
