As a downside for me as a husband who has practiced NFP with my wife, I have noticed that after the charted periods of abstinence, I have less “control” over my ejaculations than during the periods before we began NFP. It seems that after a few weeks of no sex (or even longer, depending on circumstances), when we do finally engage in intercourse, I hardly need any foreplay in order to climax :blush:. On one occasion, I even had an unintended “oops” moment, where I wasn’t even able to complete the act inside my wife. After these periods of abstinence - not surprisingly- I’m ready to jump my wife, and let's say the sight of her in very little clothing gets me pretty excited and quickens the process a lot faster than either of us would like. Before NFP, I was very good about control, so I trace it back to abstinence.
I obviously don’t do porn or masturbation, so after the abstinence periods, I don’t have a lot of control and am too ready to have relations. The quick releases interrupt our intimacy, for sure. Any others out there who have found this issue a result of NFP? Not in any way knocking NFP, btw.
