  1. She is not sick.  Stop jacking your wife up on hormones.
  2. Freedom.  It is dumb to let a little pill control your wife.
  3. All.  Nothing says “I love you” better than actions that say “I desire your complete goodness, fertility included.”
  4. Counter-culture.  Planned Parenthood will think you are crazy; this is a good thing.
  5. Adventure.  So many pay lots of money for extreme experiences like Tough Mudders or sky diving; natural bio-tracking encourages looking at life as an adventure inside your own home.
  6. Self-control.  Tough?  Yes.  Impossible?  No.  You are more than the sum of your sexual urges.
  7. Humility.  Trust me, when you are fighting the urge to abuse yourself, you realize how weak you may be and how much you need grace.
  8. Common sense.  A stomach digests.  Lungs help you breath.  The tongue tastes and helps you speak.  The marital act is designed for unity AND procreation; it is not rocket science to know this.
  9. Fulfilled.  Yea, you know that emptiness is-this-all-there-is-to-sex feeling after contracepted un-intercourse?  It goes away over time when you re-familiarize yourself with the mystery of the human person and how sex is such a great gift when shared completely and totally free.
  10. Obedience.  The Church says it is wrong.  Why take advice from some old white guy in Rome?  Well, he leans on 2000 years of history, a global mindset, and is the Vicar of Christ.  I might ask you, “Why take the advice from some MTV sex symbol that thinks he knows better than 2000 years of tradition?”
