The West is disappearing because of people who have disconnected sex from its God-given purpose.

There is no practical difference between using contraception and converting to Islam.

Thought you might want to see this. I thought the scientific reason for having sex was because it's fun, but I'm not a scientist.

higher levels of Immunoglobin A.

Immunoglobulin A is associated with mucosal surfaces and doesn't circulate much in the blood. One could theorize that its levels increase with sex because the mucosal surfaces (mouth, vagina, rectum, etc) are bombarded with more foreign antigens.
