“Mutual masturbation.” That is how author and Notre Dame professor, Charles Rice describes contraceptive sex in his book, Fifty Questions on Natural Law (Ignatius Press: San Francisco, 1995, pg. 254). This seems like a crude assessment. Why would he say this? As Professor Rice describes in his book, contraceptive sex disrupts and even contradicts the […][click to continue...]
The Church has laid out time and again that couples ought to practice a period of abstinence within marriage, only if they have a grave (or serious) reason.
