Semen is an antidepressant. A study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior found that “not only were females who were having sex without condoms less depressed, but depressive symptoms and suicide attempts among females who used condoms were proportional to the consistency of condom use.” Semen contains a hormone called prostaglandin, and the female genital tract absorbs this hormone. The greater the amount absorbed, the lower the rate of depression. Condoms ruin this effect of sex by preventing semen from naturally entering a woman. Another effect of this hormone is to bond the couple to each other, especially the woman to her man. The same study found that women “needed” their partner and desired sex with him more than couples using condoms: “For females who did not use condoms, depression scores went up as the amount of time since their last sexual encounter increased.” In our current culture, where we are desperate to be loved and needed by another but instead find our sex-lives boring and unsatisfying, condoms aren’t helping.

Oh well, not so good for my own ego, but hey, score one for the Catholic Church, for once again, She points to the truth about who we are and what we are. You see, folks, if we really are created in God’s image, then there are certain facts about the “plumbing” and the “pleasure” of the sexual act. God knew what He was doing and He only asked that we play by the rules that He set up for us through nature and divine revelation. Most of us didn’t listen ’cause, you know, we thought we had the whole orgasm thing figured out. Well, it turns out that we didn’t. And those of us who didn’t play by the rules got played by the Devil instead.
Mr. Condom has ruined our society and ruined genuine love between the spouses…not to mention the sex that goes with it.
The Condom is nothing less than the Apple in the Garden for the 20th and 21st centuries. Promising all of the glory, ecstasy, and freedom, it has led to the exact opposite. Holy Mother Church warned us…not because She was prudish but because She knew what it would bring and what we would be losing out on.
And now the whole mess is about recognizing the Sad, the Sick, and the Suckers.
