Today on Hub pages I read a hub which opined that having sex with a woman using contraceptives was akin to rape or as the author put it: "The truth is that contraception is perhaps the purest form of woman abuse. With it we take our pleasures from our partner and call it 'making love'. What a big lie! By comparison, at least the rapist doesn’t deceive the victim. There is no real love when we practice artificial birth control. We take and we give nothing." he then added that since homosexual relationships could not produce children thy were basically rape too.
