After marriage we practised all sorts of fancy coitus, _coitus reservatus_, etc., and rarely passed twenty-four hours without two conjunctions, until she got far on in the family way, and our play had to cease for a while.
Innocent marital coitus is transformed into 80s amateur porn, hot dogs get upgraded into lobster tails, nights out to dinner evolve into gut-busting flesh carnivals, and low-speed family cruises on the lake turn into high-speed water-skiing trials.
One should never engage in coitus, he writes, if they are "phlegmatic, nor if they are replete with wine or drunk; nor when they emerge from the bath, nor if they have diarrhea, nor after a bleeding, nor after hard work."
Hence the spilling of semen for any nonprocreative purpose -- in coitus interruptus (Gen. 38: 1-11), male homosexual acts, or male masturbation -- was considered tantamount to abortion or murder.
It is true that in coitus woman has but a slight external secretion, and that principally of mucus.
Liverpudlians have a phrase, "getting off at Edge Hill" one stop before Lime Street, which is a euphemism for coitus interruptus.
