There's a trust issue, here. Women often seem to mutter about whether or not they can trust men to apply proper contraception, given the man has less of a stake in the consequences of accidental pregnancy. Me, I see it the other way round — if there is an accidental pregnancy, the woman ultimately gets to choose whether or not to terminate, and the man has to live with the consequences of her decision.
My having such an attitude probably typifies my complete lack of paternal instinct — I doubt I'd find it very easy to regard a cell cluster as in any sense my baby, nor even actually a newborn child. Unless that ever changes, I feel my sprogging would be really dumb.
So, anyway, I'd be most comfortable if I was sure in my own mind I couldn't accidentally get someone pregnant. If a condom alone is insufficient, I'd prefer that I took further sterilisation measures myself. Failing that, it would be a case of how much I trusted my girlfriend, I guess…
