Why on earth do Catholics believe *that*???
and since I'm promoting lately, I may as well pose a question...

this came up in one of the recent catholicism discussions, but was never really addressed.

what forms of affection are allowed, and what not allowed, during the abstaining period of NFP? I'm thinking a lot of people have the idea that anything goes, as long as it isn't intercourse (that could get you pregnant), and doesn't involve something artificial...

can't make you agree ;) just stating what I've read, have always been to the understanding of, and incidentally, makes sense to me.

a lot of people would disagre that condoms distort unity in any way, either, but that doesn't make their use licit.

the fact is, need/desire/want/whatever aside, sex also makes babies. I don't think it's my place to try to come up with loopholes to this fact. and that's what I feel an oral sex exception would be..

though I also feel, personally, that that by iteslf would be, well, not very unitive. I tend to think "embrace" when I think unity, and other things are just foreplay or what not.
