This chapter argues that from the 1930s to the 1950s, it is probable that birth rates rose due to rising rates of coitus. Some aspects of the English experience are compared with American and Australian experiences regarding the use of contraception to reinforce the evidence for low rates of coitus in the first third of the 20th century.

Keywords:   fertility rates, contraception, birth control, coitus, birth rates
