Now you’re putting victims in a Salem witch trial sort of double-bind. According to Akins, it wouldn’t have been rape if she got pregnant, because would me she enjoyed or welcomed it. And, if she doesn’t get pregnant, well, by the USC standard it sounds like it wasn’t rape.
THey used to teach such...now it’s all about being okay to use the bathroom of either sex, or suing the school for such privilege, or not knowing what the gender of the person is until the nperson tells us which gender...along with other nonsense...
“Doesn’t SexEd 101 teach that it is possible to get pregnant without an orgasm? Healthy sperm cells can survive in the pre-ejactulant lubricant which is secreted almost every time a guy gets a hard on.”
That’s actually incorrect. What you’re describing is a commonly believed myth that is based on a kernel of misunderstood biological truth.
Sperm is NOT secreted in pre-ejaculatory fluid. There are many studies on this over the last 20 years or so, and in every one I have seen NO sperm was detected in pre-ejaculatory fluid. Chemical assays of pre-ejaculatory fluid demonstrate an absence of chemical markers associated with sperm, and numerous studies have failed to locate sperm in said fluid.
Here’s a quick link to one of the more modern ones: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12762415
Now, keep in mind, it IS possible for sperm-containing ejaculate from a prior orgasm to linger within the urethra for a short while, until urination occurs, but pre-ejaculatory fluid is absent of sperm.
I believe part of the reason that myth is so enduring is that it offers an easy, quick, understandable explanation for why coitus interruptus is generally not an effective method of birth control under patterns of normal use.
The reality though is more complicated - the coitus interruptus method suffers from the facts that immediate re-insertion after orgasm can result in pregnancy, that coitus interruptus requires conscious effort by one or both parties to cease intercourse around the time that rational thought becomes decreasingly likely, it also requires judgement to be made about how near an approaching orgasm may be, and also suffers from the fact quite a lot of men may experience some form of premature ejaculation at some point in their lives.
It’s a lot easier just to belt out a little medical “white-lie” to the teenagers.
