Angle 2: The Abstract Negatives of Contraception (in light of authentic intimacy)
All contraceptives work to either interrupt the sexual act itself (withdrawal), alter your body's natural functions (hormonal methods and sterilization), or by literally blocking the flow of your body's natural design (barrier methods).
