Another Option for Women

In a recent article addressing safer sex practices, [“Sex@mit.edu -- Tips for a Safe and Enjoyable Sex Life”, October 1] author Cristina Roussel comments that “if the guy refuses to wear a condom women have a lot of options.” Yet she forgets the most important option: simply refusing, in turn, to have sex with him. Any guy who is so disrespectful of his partner’s body and health as to put that partner -- male or female -- at risk in such a way has no business having sex with anyone, regardless of what alternate methods of birth control a female partner, in that case, may be using.
