How many couples, especially young people, use interrupted coitus as a ‘contraceptive’ method
Many. Still too many: we are talking about 60% who have used it at least once. Often this behavior is dictated by the lack of information or by the heat of the moment or, again, by the idea that using some other method (such as a condom), takes away poetry from sexual intercourse. But how many actually know that it can be very deleterious I hold back
The so-called coitus interruptus, or even onanism, is that practice which, during a complete sexual intercourse, foresees the exit of the penis from the vagina before the man ejaculates. With this subterfuge it is believed that unwanted pregnancies can be avoided. But interrupted coitus brings with it numerous negative points. Both physically and emotionally. The 5 reasons why coitus should be avoided
There are several reasons why coitus should be avoided. Among the many, here are some fundamental ones
- It does not prevent pregnancy. It does not prevent them because it may happen that the male is unable to control ejaculation, and therefore the sperm (or part of it) is introduced into the vagina. Similarly, it is good to know that the pre-seminal fluid that comes out during arousal may contain spermatozoa collected in the urethra which, inevitably, can reach the egg to be fertilized.
- And more at risk than condoms. The failure rate of interrupted intercourse not performed adequately is about 17% (but it can be as high as 35%), compared to about 2% for condoms, according to a study published in The Journal of Sex Medicine. and led by Dr. Jenny A. Higgins and colleagues from the University of Wisconsin and Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health.
- But if it is done well. In the same study it emerged that, if done well, interrupted coitus has a risk of unwanted pregnancy equal to 4%, therefore almost similar to that of a condom or other method of contraception. Supporters of natural onanism believe that it is more natural and does not have the same side effects as the pill and company and does not expose to the risk of latex allergies.
- It does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). As it is easy to think, not using protection exposes you to the risk of contracting one of the many sexually transmitted diseases. The aforementioned researchers have indeed observed how this can cause infection with the dreaded HIV and other viruses, and then bacteria, fungi or parasites.
- In the end it takes away pleasure. One of the defects which is often not taken into account is that in the end the interrupted coitus steals the couple’s pleasure. She steals it from the male because he does not enjoy the climax of orgasm, as he has to break away from the woman abruptly and as soon as she feels that she is about to have it. And then, especially if he is precocious, he also takes away the pleasure from the woman who, perhaps, had not yet reached orgasm or, worse, was about to reach it.
Curiosity. Interrupted coitus is also called ‘leap of the quail’
. Interrupted coitus is also popularly known as ‘leap of the quail’. It is said thus taking a cue from the behavior that the little bird assumes when in danger. The quail, in fact, before crouching to hide from any predator, usually takes a leap to confuse it. Basically, making the quail jump would be a way to escape the danger: in this case of a pregnancy but, as we have seen, the dangers are many and more.
