Gee, since I plan to have only two kids in this lifetime, I need to take
up some furious knitting.  Bring out the whip cream!

Like anything that is in a gray zone, the key is mindfulness.  Sure,
birth control is necessary for the prevention of unwanted births and for
allowing greater intimacy between man and woman.  However, the function
of sex is for bringing children into the world, and sexual desire exists
to push us to do the nasty.  Therefore, sexual desire is a secondary
factor in nature.  Loveless sex and addictive sex are of nothing but
purely base nature.  It's like eating cake.  Do I need cake if I have
other nourishment?  No.  But I gotta have it.  It's no sin to eat it.
I'd rather take the cake, admire it's creamy texture, think of the hard
work and finese involved in making the cake, take a slow bite into the
sweet texture, and be thankful that I have such a delicious cake to
eat.  Of course, whip cream on top would be nice.  However, instead of
taking a piece of cake, I take a whole cake, or maybe even two or more,
and stuff myself silly all day long, without even really pausing to
taste it, then I am no longer mindful and I am with an awful belly ache.
