They've Got Rhythm, As In Birth Control

Kiko's House will lift the lace curtain again today with yet another sex-related post, this one news of a new study showing that the Rhythm Method -- which rightfully seems to terrify a goodly number of women -- can be as effective as birth-control pills.

Repeat: The study was on the Rhythm Method, not more contemporary iterations of so-called Natural Family Planning.
The study's conclusion comes as something of a no-brainer to Your Faithful Correspondent, who once cohabitated with a gal who would never leave home without her basal body thermometer.

The Rhythm Method wasn't as convenient as popping pills that did strange thing to a woman's body or keeping one's leg's closed, but by cricky it worked, although there is that connection between being at one's most fertile and . . . er, randiness that requires some discipline.

And while you didn't ask, we didn't use condoms. So yes, it was all on her. Shame on me.
