NYT: Withdrawal Method Finds Ally. Whehhhhhh.
"If the male partner withdraws before ejaculation every time a couple has vaginal intercourse, about 4 percent of couples will become pregnant over the course of a year."
Shouldn't that "If" be in 72 pt. type? What's the rate if the male partner doesn't pull out every time? If you're having sex correctly, pulling out should be the last thing anyone is thinking about. (At least that's what I'm told.)

Finally, we as a society should dispel the myth that pre-cum can impregnate a female. This is false. Pre-cum cannot impregnante anyone.
Condoms suck, it hasn't worked gentlemen. Let's admit they are an abject failure. I suggest we train our young men to control their ejaculations. I do it all the time, and then nut on her chest/back/ass.

it's crazy that the NYT reported those findings so uncritically. the most important unaddressed questions are the definitions of "typical" use and the rates of perfect versus typical. but hey! it's sexy time at the NYT!
