Method of birth control popularized by Alice B. Stockham in Karezza: Ethics of Marriage
(1896) which was based upon male continence (Coitus Reservatus
) whereby the male does not ejaculate during vaginal intercourse, and ideally, withdraws after detumescence. Karezza was chiefly employed as a technique to heighten sensual and spiritual awareness and enable lovers to secure a closer bond. Sanger included an analysis of the Karezza method in her 1915 pamphlet Magnetation Methods of Birth Control
