Raquel Welch comments on the effect "The Pill" has on Marriage and Relationships

Recently, hormonal contraception (a.k.a "The Pill") has turned 50 years old on Mother's Day. Some are celebrating all the great things about birth control, but Raquel Welch, a 1970's sex symbol, blames the pill on a reduction of morals and how it has led to, essentially, marriageless sex:

The Hollywood actress said the widespread use of oral contraceptives had led to a breakdown in sexual morality and fuelled the growth of rampant promiscuity among the young.

Miss Welch, 69, said the situation has grown so grave that "these days nobody seems able to keep it in their pants or honour a commitment."


[A] "significant and enduring" effect on women was the idea that they could have sex without any consequences - with the result that fewer today saw marriage as a "viable option."

"Seriously, folks, if an ageing sex symbol like me starts waving the red flag of caution over how low moral standards have plummeted, you know it's gotta be pretty bad."
