<quoted text>That is true. Churches have 2 rules: 1. No sex before marriage. 2. No masturbation. It is like being told to stop breathing. In fact, masturbation is a safety valve to release tension. ADVICE: If you are in a church try to stick to the rules. If you cannot, then go to another church - many are now understanding of the single person's predicament. Meanwhile, do not feel bad about doing it. It is natural. Make it last and enjoy.-- Roger G. Boschman, Therapist.

I have 3 children and I used to think BC was a sin.....but very soon after my first child I started looking around (I've always lived in the country in south Florida) and I saw friends from high school who were always getting pregnant even tho they couldn't afford even raising one child let alone 3 or 4 or 5 or even (like one of my best friends Rhonda) 7.

Don't get me wrong I think having children is wonderful and is one of the most important parts of being a woman.....I even have the urge to get pregnant with a 4th from time to time...

But I think its more of a sin to keep having kids you can't care for and can't provide for then it is to use birth control. We shouldn't stop having sex, but we also shouldn't be getting knocked up all the time either.

Women control the births. It's up to the women of the world to make the decisions of whether they want to bring a child into the world or not.
Whether they get abortions, use birth control or just abstain from sex is up to them. They try to keep abortions to a minimum as they can be dangerous and more costly. Plus there is the psychological factor that affects the happiness of a lot of women with abortions. But in the end, it's up to them. They have the baby making equipment, not men.
Watch Owebama try to regulate women soon. It's coming. No formula for you!!!!!! Just wait. If he's elected he will do anything he wants to. Think. As Aretha says. Think.
BIRTH CONTROL:The best way today is condom. Women have the power to refuse sex if a condom is not used. If condom is present, man will wear it.-- Roger G. Boschman, Therapist.

No one is suggesting that bc be banned or anything like that. The problem is when you have idiots like Fluke suggesting that insurance companies be forced to cover bc no matter what. Insurance companies are business' and they have the right to cover or not cover whatever they choose. You have the right to get a policy that covers what you want and to not use the companies that don't cover what is important to you. But it is wrong when our government tells a private industry what they have to provide to their cusomers. The government should NOT be taking over private business' and dictating what they must do. If you think it's ok for them to do this with insurance companies just remember that at one point in time it was impossible to imagine our government taking over any private business and forcing them to provide what the government dictates, and just because they may not be taking over everything.....yet....it doesn't mean that this is their limit on business takeovers. It could be yours or any other business tomorrow.
Taking bc is a choice....and no business should be forced by our government to provide a product to all customers because it something they choose to take.

Turn off the Fox....and get your head out of your ass. Birth Control is a fact of life and has saved this country and many others, unwanted pregnancies. God almighty, wake the f--- up.

One time, on the EWTN Q&A forum, a fanatical priest said something about a man shouldn't receive communion if he'd experienced a nocturnal emission the night before. I wrote to him saying I thought that was absurd, unless sex really IS dirty. God gave that to males for a purpose. Same with masturbation - I have never thought that was a sin...little kids do it and learn to do it on their own. Again, it's there for a purpose. God wants us to be fruitful and multiply but the pope objects, what a joke!

My preferred method was always just the pull out method but after a few guys saying they "Couldn't manage to pull out on time" after we had finished and also some guys pulling out ONLY AFTER they had started cumming meaning they had already shot once or twice inside me.

I had to go on the pill as anytime something like that happened it was too much worrying about if I did get pregnant.

I don't like condoms as sex feels so much better natural and now that I'm on the pill I really do LOVE the feeling of the guy finishing inside me

Aw Shucks thank you Hey Pal.

So which part would it be that is laced with an attempt at sardonic wit? The part where you show "pity for my poor soul" or where you wish me "only true happiness and joy", if that is the case you have quite a mean and vicious streak.

Firstly I should point out however, I am a godless heathen i.e. not a member of any religion. So soul is a rather meaningless term, unless your attacking my soul and the ability to dance and feel the music. If that's the case your gonna have a fight on your hands and it'll come in the form of interpretative dance, so get those shoes on.

Secondly I would like to also point out that unlike so many people in this world, the way I measure my own happiness and joy is by how happy and joyful my life actually is. Not by how others define it. It really is a shame more people can't be like this as it would stop all these people trying to be and act like all these "celebs" but that is their choice.

Hey Pal, you do realize that we are in fact a sexual species and not just for procreative purposes. SEX IS FUN as is MASTURBATION and if it isn't, you clearly aren't doing it right.

Please Everyone remember "The unexamined life is not worth living and the unlived life is not worth examining." If it isn't worth examining then what possible value can it hold so Please, do that which makes you smile, gives you joy. One of the MANY things that does this for me is SEX, I also like crochet and playing tennis, so do what you LOVE.

Also please make others smile too, it provides an Instant karmic repayment, just from the sheer joy of making that person smile.

In my opinion: 1) Men and women have a basic right to have consensual sex, for pleasure, with other consenting adult humans. That right carries with it the responsibility to deal with the consequences of their sexual activities, whether those consequences include pregnancies, STD's, or relationship problems. 2) Birth control that prevents an egg from being fertilized is legal and moral. 3) The cost of birth control should be borne by the parties who are using it, just like toothpaste or deodorant. 4) Once a human egg is fertilized it is a human life and must be protected and nurtured. Abortion is not birth control any more than killing is life control. Abortion is the taking of an innocent human life.
