The perforated condom certainly isn’t pleasant, but it is moral. Masturbation, on the other hand, is never moral. Why would you want to put immorality into your home? How does that make it less immoral?
And you apologize for “disgusting” but not “fanatical”?
Supposing a couple, who are suspecting infertility, having intercourse during a non-fertile time with a perforated confom. Is that really open-to-life? We’re kidding ourselves… aren’t we? :shrug:
This is the same argument many people use against NFP. The difference is in whether or not we are totally open to God’s work. Perforating the condom and only using it for fertility test purposes is putting your money where your mouth is: total, free, faithful, fruitful love, always, not just most of the time. You are leaving it up to God, even though you are working within His laws that would seem to prevent a pregnancy (infertile time of the month and low likelihood of any sperm making it through the hole in the condom).
If the Church allows us to give a semen sample for research, then I would hope they would allow us to masterbate to obtain the sample.
No, the Church does NOT allow masturbation for research. You are not allowed to masturbate for ANY reason, even allegedly “good” reasons like research or fertility testing.
P.S. Don’t get me wrong, I have no idea what the Church stance is on fertility tests. These are just my thoughts. :twocents:
The disclaimer should really go at the top, if you’re going to go so directly against Church teaching.
