“Business Insider” On The Kindara App, And How It Can Help You Kick “The Pill”

Kindara Co-founders Will Sacks and Kati Bicknell

Joe Six-Pack, here. I know how it’s all the rage to root for the artificial birth control team these days, what with the HHS Mandate promising folks “freedom” from having babies at no cost. You know, treating pregnancy like it is some kind of disease.

Not that Planned Parenthood couldn’t report some scary statistics for the number of abortions provided to women who were using the pill when they became pregnant, or anything.

I wrote a post way back when about how folks aren’t  ”black boxes,” and how the whole getting pregnant process could be easily explained (but isn’t, because cooties, or something). But nobody listens to me.  And the real head scratcher is why artificial hormones are reviled in beef and dairy products (Whole Foods, anyone?), and fawned over when it comes to feeding them to our moms, sisters, and daughters.

Teach our girls and boys about female fertility cycles? That smacks of science, or something.

Weird. [Read more...]

Video: The Economics Of Sex, Sex, Sex, And More Sex

Hmmmm. Intriguing.

Got ten minutes? That’s all it will take for the Austin Institute for the Study of Family and Culture to help us make sense of dating, mating, and baby making. Even the folks at Freakonomics found this worthwhile to share. 

Special guest appearance by the motivation changing, and soon to be ubiquitous (and free!), birth control pill.

Grab some popcorn, settle down with a favorite beverage,  and learn a little about the birds and the bees, and the costs associated with the same. Who wins and who loses. It’s all quite fascinating.

Ready? Roll tape.  [Read more...]

Your Must Read Post of the Day: Heather King on Pope Francis, Mercy, and Sex

I’ve shared the thoughts of Heather King in this space a time or two. Unlike me though, Heather is a gifted writer, and one who actually tossed everything from her former life away in order to pursue her writing vocation. Her conversion story is an inspiring example of God’s mercy at work.

The upshot? If you aren’t reading her blog Shirt of Flame, you should be. Consider her post on  Pope Francis today as Exhibit A in the case to convince you to read her blog (and her books!). [Read more...]

Obama and the Crass Roots Campaign

I thought the above was over the top. And then I saw this.

Our President approves of the following message… [Read more...]

Orgasm: The Alpha and the Omega of Our Politics? UPDATED

“Oh Frank, what’s with that headline? You’re really just too much. Calm yourself down man, and have a beer or something.”

Actually, there isn’t enough room on the headline to say much more. I could have said, “Sex Viewed Through the Lens of Secularism Drives Our Political Policies.” But that might have put you to sleep. [Read more...]

Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex, Sex and More Sex

Catholic style, which is to say, naturally. The Anchoress has a little link filled primer for those who still believe the celibate priests and nuns of the Catholic Church have no idea what they are talking about on this issue.

Most of the links are posts by the laity, you know; the types whom NPR can never seem to find when they are interviewing folks who are leaving mass. Like Joe Six-Pack.
