Hi, guys —

My wife has a serious case of Vulvodynia and has had it for ten years. The doctors say there is no cure. Although we cannot have sexual intercourse, we get intimate in other ways.

In all cases, I release outside of the womb because of her condition.

  • Is it a sin to have pleasure in this manner?

Dear Anonymous Al,

Thanks for the question.

We have answered similar questions to yours and believe the appended postings will address all the issues involved in your question.

Most, if not, all the time, I categorize questions of your type under the Life and Family section on the left navigation bar in the knowledge base. There are only six pages, so you may want to take a few minutes to read through them all. This is the first page.

Make sure you check out the NaPro Technology web site at
