Just Say YES! to Sex Education

This Washington Post article, about UMD Human Sexuality professor Robin Sawyer, has my heart all a-twitter. How totally awesome. I kind of want to be this man.

A young man asks Sawyer about timing intercourse around a woman's menstrual cycle, the so-called rhythm method of birth control. Sawyer resists the urge to ask what decade the young man is living in.

"What do you call the woman who uses 'natural' family planning?" he responds. "Mommy."

Not that I'm knocking the rhythm method -- if you're a mature settled adult willing to work hard at your contraception, good for you. Not for me, though.
