Is there a source for the second paragraph? Contraception has been around for over 100 years and the 1800's where not known as a time of abstinence. The average Victoria male in London had on average over 50 extra marital liaisons a year and there were even brothels in parliament at the time. --Commandment9 21:13, 30 April 2007 (EDT)
I'd just edited the paragraph for that very reason, to say that promiscuity increased as a result of the invention of oral contraceptives, leading to the sexual revolution.
However, the page seems to have been instantly deleted. I wonder why? --Emmeline 13:55, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
