    • 2002, Colin Jones, The Great Nation, Penguin 2003, p. 351:
      Yet in the event, population continued to grow – even though signs began to appear that coitus interruptus was beginning to be used systematically to reduce family size.
    • 2003, Lucy Atkins, The Guardian, 7 Oct 2003:
      We have come some way since sheep's bladder condoms but male contraceptive options are still pretty basic. Not counting one Chinese invention - a small electronic device worn in the underpants, which causes infertility for a month after a current is switched on briefly - it is still down to the old favourites: abstinence, coitus interruptus, condoms or vasectomy.
