Date Rape Drugs: How to Protect Yourself!
The issues of sexual assault and date rape are serious. Date rape is common on college campuses. It is present in the dating scene and also in everyday life. Date rape is the same as a rape that occurs with a stranger. The impact on the victim is the same. In fact in some cases it might be worse. On some level they trusted this person. It’s an unfortunate fact of life… Some people desire to pray on others. However, there are ways to keep this from happening to you!
While it may be impossible to eliminate date rape completely, there are solutions and proactive tools out there that can help mitigate this risk. One of these tools is called Undercover Colors, a nail polish that changes color when placed in a drink with a date rape drug! How great is that?! Their website describes the product. They state the following:
“wearable nail tech that identifies the presence of common date rape drugs in a variety of beverages through color change”.
Also, the company states the problem:
“One in 6 women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. This unthinkable problem has reached epidemic levels on college campuses”.
Undercover Colors is providing a unique answer to this problem.
And the solution is:
“The only perfect solution to drug induced sexual assault is ending it altogether. As we all work toward that ideal, Undercover Colors’ technology provides wearable protection at your fingertips. Simply dip your finger into a verified beverage and within seconds the presence of prevalent date rape drugs will be identified in color change”.
At this time, Undercover Colors is in the development stage of their product. Hopefully this modern technology will be available for everyone very soon! In the meantime, situational awareness is key! Don’t allow anyone to buy you a drink. Don’t leave your drink unattended. Also, if you feel unsafe, contact the bar manager or bartender immediately. Your life may depend on it!
