can of deodorant would do the job if sprayed in there eyes, all she would need is 20 seconds to get a headstart or help


Anti-perspirent is actually better for the job, the type that powders.

Dunno if this is mentioned but at my uni they give out these "rape alarm" things to the girls during freshers. I can say that those are effective detterents, the sound is excruciatingly loud and bound to attract attention I know this from having fooling around with my flatmates rape alarm (not knowing what it was), and then accidently pulling the toggle, lol.

could also try and collect her in the car as often as physically possible and avoid the situation alltogether. avoidance is the best way if its possible.

im not sure a taser would be all that great, i think youve only got one shot and if you miss then youve had it.

i think self defence classes you can forget, i dont think women can easily defend themself agaisnt a hyper aggressive male, i know we would like to think they can, but realistically they cant, on average.


^^^^^^^^ At last someone with a bit of common sense

I am not comfortable with this thread at all

I am not a self defence expert like the majority on here - but I do know that a *moderatelty* effective weapon in the hands of somebody that is not 100% commited to using it forcefully , accurately and wholeheartedly is very likely to be making a situation much worse for themselves

Some great ideas on here - but I suggest a few of you visit the real world occasionally
