Oh, Eric Flint

I get that your characters have traveled back in time to the 1600s. It's neat. I get that, since they've been there for several years now, there isn't so much in the way of reliable birth control, and people are taking that into account. Useful detail.

But there are a whole lot of ways to sexually satisfy yourself and your partner that don't end in pregnancy. I mean, yes, oral sex etc is still sex for the purposes of disease, and down-time characters might not be as aware of the alternatives to intercourse, but when your modern-born character's deal is "I don't want to get pregnant so we're not going to third base!"...

...well, there's either some cognitive dissonance there or I feel really sorry for whoever you're involved with.
