Adam Levine says his “fool proof” birth control method is pulling out

I just wanted to cover this story to comment on how stupid it is. As far as Adam Levine goes, I saw “The Voice” about twice last season and I didn’t have a strong opinion of him either way. He seemed decent and hardworking, but he wasn’t as likable as Blake Shelton. Also, I once saw Adam perform with Maroon 5 and he gave a good show, but I got the vibe that he was full of himself. He’s a rock star, after all. (They were opening for Matchbox 20 years ago and a date had tickets.)

Anyway Adam, 32, has been dating statuesque Victoria’s Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna, 25, for about two years. We’ve heard rumors that Adam was stepping out on her, but those were vague and never confirmed. In a joint appearance on Howard Stern recently, Adam revealed his birth control method with Anne, which he said was “foolproof” – pulling out. Uh, that’s not foolproof. OK Magazine has the details:

Leave it to Howard Stern to get the intimate details of his guests’ sex lives on The Howard Stern Show. This week, Howard asked Maroon 5’s frontman and judge of The Voice, Adam Levine, to share his birth-control method with his Victoria’s Secret girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna. And yes, he actually shared it.

Adam has been proudly dating Anne, 25, for two years now.

“This is the longest, most functional relationship I’ve ever been in,” he told Howard on his show. “I don’t want to screw it up.”

Anna reportedly came out of the green room to share her version of how she met Adam. The two met when Maroon 5 was hired to play at a party for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

“He thought I was a stuck-up b**** and I kind of thought he was a d***bag musician,” she explained.

But after getting drinks, they realized they got along.

Now, Adam and Anne are as close as a couple can get. At least, we hope so since they’re not exactly being very safe with their birth control.

In a TMI conversation, Adam revealed he uses “a fool-proof birth-control system,” the pull-out method.

“I didn’t start a band to get girls,” Adam said with a laugh. “I stayed in the band to get girls.”

[From OK!]

Well it’s not great advice to put out there as far as birth control goes, especially when we’re talking about a guy who is probably only in a monogamous relationship for appearance’s sake. I hope that he’s using condoms with any women he’s sleeping with on the side.

I did a tiny bit of google research, and there was a controversial recent report that claimed that, if done perfectly, withdrawal has a surprising 4 percent failure rate as opposed to condom’s 2 percent failure rate. The researcher also noted that two studies show that it’s not true that there is mobile sperm in pre-ejaculate, unless the man has had sex in the last two hours. So maybe withdrawal gets “a bad rap” as some claim, but it’s still not effective against sexually transmitted diseases, and it requires a lot of trust between partners. When it comes to Adam Levine, it sounds pretty selfish too.

Here’s some of Adam’s interview with Howard. He handles the question about Christina Aguilera gaining weight pretty well.

    Love the VS fashion show outfit. I wore that the other day to pick up the kids from school.

    He looks like a mouth breather.

    • AMANDA says:

      Ha ha I wore that too! You copy cat! He looks like a slob at a fashion show!

    • gg says:

      Sea monkey costume!

      He surely does need to keep his shirt on – what a conceited wimp.

    • Veruca says:

      … and in other news, the world established that Adam Levine is a total focking idiot. The weather today will be…

      • Andie B says:

        He is SO good looking, but extremely ‘up himself’ as we say in my country. I have felt for a long time that he is an idiot…confirmation received!

      • EFFEMINATE MANHO says:

        I don’t understand how anyone can find him hot or sexy. Sure his face is okay but he’s nothing special. He’s short, small framed, has small petite shoulders, he’s hairy, and he looks physically weaker than your average man. That wimpy petite look is a TURN OFF for most women. And his biotchy catty up-his-azz personality and whorey skanky ways just make it worse.

        I like tall muscular men like Jared Padelecki & Jensen Ackles from Supernatural or Chris Hemsworth & Chris Evans from The Avengers. These manly men are not only gorgeous but they have moral values and aren’t skanky sluhts.

    • Molly says:

      His talking voice is unbearably whiny and annoying. I don’t know how that woman stands him. Presumably money makes it sexier to her.

      I’m a little surprised. I thought for sure he wasn’t into women. Maybe he’s not. Maybe he makes himself be into women.

  2. Lis says:

    “…if done perfectly, withdrawal has a surprising 4 percent failure rate as opposed to condom’s 2 percent failure rate.”

    If done perfectly, of course.

    IIRC, if you compare how people actually use condoms, and how people actually use the “pulling out” method, the failure rates are pretty much the same.

    Eh, their bodies, their business.

    • ShazBot says:

      I know someone who is currently 8 months pregnant because the pull out is so effective. haha good luck with that Adam.

      • WillyNilly says:

        Sounds like he has slow swimmers. I too was pregnant from the pull out method.

        That 4% doesn’t account for premature…uh…you know where I’m going with this.

      • Jessie says:

        I’m 6 months pregnant, and the hubby pulled out AND I took the morning after pill for good measure. Yeah, it’s not foolproof!

      • cmc says:

        Pull-out method + fertility awareness is what we’re using now and it is working for us…but now reading this thread I’m rethinking it quite a bit.

        So, you ladies don’t/didn’t track your cycle to check when you were fertile/ovulating, or you did and got pregnant anyway? The way we do it, there’s about a week every month where we use condoms, pulling out the rest of the time.

      • ShazBot says:

        @cmc – I have a friend who did both counting cycle and pull out and her son is 2 and a half…

      • cmc says:


        Then she wasn’t doing it right. Not only can I actually feel it when I’m ovulating (it’s painful), but we have sex with a condom a few days before I’m expecting ovulation and extend to a few days after just to be safe.

        I agree that it’s not right for *everyone*, but I know and trust my partner and we’ve been doing this for years. For *just* pull-out method (used properly) to have a 96% success rate, and coupled with fertility awareness a bit more so, I find it a little alarmist that people automatically say it never works. You’re just only hearing about the 4% that failed- everyone else isn’t discussing their BC methods with you. I know I don’t talk about that kind of stuff with my friends either, so it’s very possible.

    • gg says:

      I’m sure all the Catholic families from the 70s with ten kids are all agreeing with him …

    • Tazina says:

      He’s obviously joking. Do the people on here believe everything they read and hear?

  3. Heather says:

    I’ve gotten knocked up with the pull out method. Took a few years, but yep.

    • Naye in VA says:

      Exactly, keep doing it and you’ll be a part of that 4%. Actually everyone i know who has been unintentionally pregnant was NOT using a condom (and i assume not counting on the Plan B) including myself. Condoms work wonders. just try em. I know i will be giving my daughter bucketfulls of condoms lol

      • Maguita says:

        Not to get all brand-y on you. But if sensitivity is issue, go for Japanese. Resistant, and extremely thin. Just go for the biggest size you can find though… Because their selling average… is anything but!

        Boy, did this thread get technical or what!

    • Jeneral says:

      Pulling out is as valid a theory for birth control as anything else — I don’t think it works as often (as evidenced by the research data), but if it works for the couple, all the more power to them.

      TMI Alert! My husband and I use the rhythm method as well as Adam’s Genius Plan and *luckily* we haven’t gotten pregnant in over 7 years. Of course, I’m not an idiot, and I don’t advocate what we do to others because I know it’s risky and if you don’t know your body REALLY well, will likely end in disaster.

      I’m also well aware that I could get pregnant, and I have back-up measures at the ready if that happened and we didn’t want a baby.

      If anyone uses this method with a guy they don’t know well, a guy who doesn’t know his own body, or they go into it actually thinking it’s “foolproof”, then I hope they’re prepared for the consequences.

      • Julie says:

        I don’t advocate this method for others, my husband and I have been using the pull-out method for 5 years and never got pregnant. I took birth control and was pregnant in two months WITH taking all the damn pills every morning at the same time.

      • kittles says:

        My boyfriend and I have been doing this for almost 6 years and I don’t take the pill and there has never been any issue for us. I think it totally depends on the man though, if he is a selfish f-ck who isn’t going to pull out and ‘accidentally’ keeps going then you have yourself an a**hole right there. If you have someone who you trust completely and who is aware of the consequences then you don’t have to worry, I know I never do.

  4. teehee says:

    I pity that woman.

    I loathe that man (and all of his type).

    • brin says:

      ITA. He’s repulsive.

      • smith says:

        Not to add fuel to the rumors (although, let’s be honest that’s why we’re all here) – isn’t it fairly common knowledge that he has the Herp? I thought he was outed along with Paris, Janet and a bunch of others when their perscriptions were posted on Smoking Gun.

        Wow I feel really dirty airing someone else’s very personal business but it’s apropos to the post so I’m going to give myself a pass.

        In closing – wrap that mutha up.

  5. Julie says:

    even with condoms you can have problems with semen on your hands if you are not careful. i guess most people nowadays forget that sex can lead to children.

    the chances is one thing. 4 percent is pretty low but what if you are in those 4 percents, eh? not cool.

    it also says “if done perfectly”. maybe he perfected his method on the road :)but chances are its never done perfectly. those sperms are tricky they want to get their job done.

    its good old murphys law. if you are in a loving relationship and have sex without protection and want children nothing will happen, if you screw a rockstar douche, use condoms and the pill, you will get pregnant.

    • Maguita says:

      “problems with semen on your hands”… no honey, they are talking about pancakes on your tummy here!

      Just kidding, could not take this guy seriously. Good thing it was Howard Stern, not some TV show kids watch!

    • chantal says:

      If you have semen on your hand then it’s too late or you are a kinky MF

  6. Katie says:

    I would absolutely die if my husband told the press about this! He certainly wouldnt’ have to worry about doing it perfectly because it would be a while before he did it at all!

  7. Tapioca says:

    I’m assuming he’s kidding, actually but nevermind.

    Maybe it works for them because his GF’s too thin to ovulate?

  8. Katie says:

    Pulling out is fool proof? Then how come I’m 4 months pregnant by my husband?! LOL!

  9. Asli says:


  10. Marianne says:

    I feel that maybe he was just kidding around.

    Then again who really knows.

    • Mari says:

      Some guys just can. Probably they know their bodies very well. I was once in a relationship where this boyfriend used this. He was already 40something and never had children using this method. I know that this method would not have worked with some other boyfriends.

  11. lil ole me says:

    She is OBVIOUSLY his beard!

  12. Kaboom says:

    Fool proof as in proves he’s a fool.

  13. sam says:

    My friend used pull out method. Her son is 2 now.

  14. Helvetica says:

    Well if the rumour and blind item are true and if he got herpes, that Anne girl will get it too.

    If i were her i’d insist, sock it up sir!

  15. D. says:

    I think we should start a pool on how soon we will see the headline, “Anne Vyalitsyna possibly knocked up by musician/failed puller-outer Adam Levine” on Celebitchy.

    I call dibs on March 2012.

  16. Marjalane says:

    Why have I not seen one comment that this was just TMI for so early in the morning? However- I did have a roommate once who’s boyfriend did the pull out, but because he thought it was “unclean” to do otherwise. I still do the dog head cock at that one.

    • lilred says:


    • Maguita says:

      “I still do the dog head cock at that one.”

      I’m not getting it..? Share the laugh if that’s a joke if you please. We all need it…

      Unless you “pulled” too early, and missed the punch line?

      • Marjalane says:

        No! The “dog head cock” is when you make the same look a dog does when he’s perplexed by something! Like, they cock their head to the side and look at you like they don’t get it! Obviously the word “cock” was not the right one for this thread! Funny-

      • Maguita says:

        Oh, thanks Marjalane!

        I really thought you were talking about some sort of sexual position… Or a new contraceptive method I’ve never heard about 🙂

  17. paola says:

    What’s with his super short trousers in that picture????? ewwww

  18. MCiMe says:

    I pity the fact none of you (much less the biased writer) cared to actually listen to their (lovely in many ways) interview together.
    Adam and Anne talked adamantedly about their things, and the pulling out thing was in no way an advice to anyone. They talked about birth control, the way they (and only them, without prescriptuons to nobody) handle the fact they are not up for babies nor marriage right now, but also said that in case she would get eventually pregnant (and that solves the fact they sure are aware the method might not be safe) they would surely sit down and decide what to do with it.
    They were so sweet there, and kidding back and forth in such an easy way, that I have a hard time believe they were faking a single word.
    The whole Stern thing was humourous, a bit dirty but truly lovely.
    They seemed completely sincere, in love enough to be that open without pre-made answers and in no way they were there to promote any habit, which none of them would anyway.
    That was stated.
    It’s their Life, which they were asked about.
    They gave insight to that, they were at Stern for it, and that place has a peculiar style of interviewing guests.
    You may dislike it, but many like that attitude and raw style.
    Adam and Anne are a very good couple, together for more than two years and there they talked about it in a surprisingly nice way, even being over the top (not really, if you follow regularly Stern, who clearly loved them).
    I get you don’t like Adam, but at least criticize him for facts and after hearing his whole speech, not by grabbing bites and pieces out of an hour long thing with no intention to actually follow or understand what he and Anne did really say.
    I wish them happiness.
    She surely seems his best possible match, and unlike you here, I think he’s a really good and talented person to be with, so I hope in the long run, when they will like to have babies, the whole pulling out thing can stop being practiced.
    They are stunningly beautiful so their kids would be amazingly gorgeous.
    Keep hating.
    They don’t care and I am happy they have a life not many can.

    • NYC_girl says:

      “… what to do with it.” ??? Really?

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @nyc, I know! Right? 😒

        How about taking the pill so they don’t have to “sit down and have a talk about what to do with it.”

      • Iggles says:

        Eh, to each their own.

        Not everyone wants to use the pill. I think condoms are cheaper and less intrusive.

        Personally, I’ve been on the pill before and I have no desire to go back on it again. It does mess with your hormones with some side effects that can suck, such as affecting libido and can even changing who you find attractive (studies have been done on this!). Also, if/when you want kids it can take up to a year until the hormones are fully out of your system and you can conceive.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @iggles, I’m SUPER aware of the side effects of birthcontrol. I’ve been on the pill, patch and depo shot. I agree that there are some troublesome side effects (in fact, my reproductive endocrinologist believes that 11 years on depo contributed to my PCOS and infertility). However, I happen to think that the benefits outweigh the risks. I’m also aware of the study to which you refer and that wouldn’t come into play if you begin taking the pill after you choose a partner. Perhaps I should have been more general and said they should practice more sensible birthcontrol (in the form of condoms, the pill etc), rather then decide what to do when she becomes pregnant. As a woman, I’m all for reproductive rights. However, I find it irresponsible when people use abortion as a form of birthcontrol.

    • Sophie says:

      I’m not going to lie, I didn’t read your entire post. Seriously, who has that much of an opinion on Adam Levine & his sperm? Anyway, you sound very young.

      • Maripily says:

        You didn’t read her whole post…just like you probably didn’t listen to the entire interview. Which was her point. How rude to comment on the length of a post. If she has a point she wants to get across, who are we to criticize if she does it in two sentences or twenty? Just skip over the long comments…maybe Twitter feeds are more your style 🙂

      • Sophie says:

        Lol! I’m sure you’re guilty of writing chapters on gossip blogs too. Why else would you get so defensive? To be fair, I went back & read her entire post and I stick with my previous comment only now I know for a fact that I was correct.

      • Sophie says:

        You’re wrong. I’m more than capable of reading long threads just as long as they don’t bore me to death about a wannabe rock star & his sperm. She goes on & on that they’re a great couple as if she knows them first hand. All I can think is, “why does she care so damn much about what we think?” The both of you need to settle down. It’s not that deep.

      • Johanna says:

        Sophie were you the one who posted on Dlisted about the piñatas?? Funny stuff. Also, you read my mind on the over post.

      • Erinn says:

        I love that you question why she has such an opinion on the story that was posted here- but you have such a strong opinion on her post. You say that they sound young, while at the same time sounding immature. Her post was not in the least bit offensive, and yet you are so quick to criticise her. Maybe you should calm down as well 🙂

      • Sophie says:

        @ Jo… I know nothing about a pinata but I am full of goodies 😉 Erinn… I never said her post was offensive & my original comment wasn’t intended to criticize her. I will admit that in the process of my honesty I did judge her age. Guilty! Quick, someone shoot me for being the first individual to be bitchy on a gossip blog.

    • LL says:

      I can wish them happiness, too.

      …while still finding them stupid.

    • Jerrica Benton says:

      They are both icky, especially that Adam Levine. SO tatted up and his close-set eyes….And the woman whoever she is with her small head and gigantic lips…other than being tall and thin she has nothing going for especially her lack of taste in men.

  19. Maya says:

    He just looks so scummy, like he needs a bath…or an autoclave.

  20. Dawn says:

    Now I expect this sort of talk from a high school boy but not a man of 32 or 33 (whatever he is). The only fool proof birth control is NO SEX. I guess Adam will find that out however by becoming a dad. Pull out indeed! But I still like the guy and find him strangely attractive, he has a great smile!

  21. ToastedSkin says:

    he was obviously kidding about it being fool proof. i like him, a bit cocky, but what rockstar isnt?

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, I took it as him joking around too. I really like Adam. He’s a bit cocky, but I find him entertaining. And hey, he’s in the entertainment business, so I’d say mission accomplished.

  22. ella says:

    pull and pray!

  23. Talie says:

    The whole interview with both of them is pretty interesting…that girl doesn’t like a fool who would get played easily.

  24. Calli P says:

    Too bad his dad didn’t.

  25. Quinn says:

    How effective is pulling out? Well, millions of Catholics can’t be wrong!!! 🙂

    • francesca says:

      Pulling Out is not a Catholic birth control method.

      • Quinn says:

        Trust me, as a Cathlolic, it’s been done by many…about as effective as the Rhythm method when practiced by the masses.

    • L says:

      Seriously. NFP is not the same thing as pulling out.

      It’s pretty labor intensive actually, with measuring basal temperature and cervical mucusus (it changes depending on your fertile cycle). It’s about taking the temperature at the same time in the morning every day before going to the bathroom and lots of other stuff.

      I take regular bc pills, but I had a friend do NFP for 7 years and who didn’t get pregnant during that time. Of course, we’re both married and not to rock stars who prob aren’t being faithful.

      Don’t get me started on the STD risks this model is taking.

    • Mari says:

      Do people really believe that Catholics really do not take the pill, use condoms, etc?
      Where do those catholics live?
      Where I am from, many do use contraception, some do not, for religious issuesor they do not like the side effects of the pill, etc.

    • Maguita says:

      Please stop talking about pulling out, before Santorum accuses you of mass murder. Or “child abandonment”.

  26. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    In retailland too much Maroon 5 – to me he sounds like a male Celine Dion, not good. Here is a photo – some ladies think he’s hot some not.

  27. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Ok this method does atually work for many people..but somebody should ask him how he prevents STI’s and the like…hmmmm

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      I’m thinking he doesn’t and maybe the “pull-out method” works so well because he’s passed something along that’s affected his partners reproductive system and she CAN’T get pregnant.

  28. embertine says:

    I would have thought Adam Levine’s foolproof method of contraception was his personality. God he makes my skin crawl.

    • The Truth Fairy says:


    • Jacqueline says:

      @ embertine: I love Jews. Married one and converted. But this one is one I dont like. I wont be having his kid for sure. I also hate douchebags. His songs and band isnt even that great. “I got the moves like Jagger.” No. He just has a big narcissistic head.

  29. Rhiley says:

    Stuck up bitch and douche bag musician= the perfect couple.

  30. Zorbitor says:

    He’s got the spooge like Jagger!

  31. D. says:

    OK, I read that researcher’s paper – that 4% figure is NOT based on a scientific study (e.g. a controlled experiment that involved recruiting a large sample of couples, assigning some to a control group, and the others to a “withdrawal method only” group, and tracking them over time to determine the pregnancy rates for both groups).

    That 4% figure is cobbled together from online surveys where women self-reported their use of contraceptives. In other words, it’s a completely unreliable figure (which is why this paper was not published in a legit, peer-reviewed scientific journal).

    Basically, the researcher’s main point is that many women like & use the withdrawal method, so family planning organizations should consider promoting it as an effective back-up that is best used in combination with another birth control method. Not by itself.

    But somehow the media managed to turn that into “Pulling out nearly as reliable as condoms!”

    TL;DR version: Withdrawal in combination with birth control, a diaphragm/sponge, etc. = good. Withdrawal as sole method of contraception = bad idea

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Thank you for that. Something seemed off about that number, but I didn’t take the time to look into it. I’m glad you cleared it up for those of us too lazy to google 😉

  32. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    But there is also the whole pre-ejaculation (I really hate that word. It’s so clinical and give me) and I mean even such a small amount can make that baby. Just ask my cousins.

    I cannot take birth control. My body is really sensitive to drugs and I honestly don’t trust pharmaceuticals all that much. When I got pregnant the second time, it wasn’t planned. We wanted more kids but not right then and there. I wanted the babies to be a little farther a part in age and just a chance to give my body a rest and get the hang of parenting. We took precaution but God was basically like screw you so, yeah. LOL

    • Girl says:

      Have you looked into Fertility Awareness Method (FAM)? Toni Weschler has a great book on the subject called Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

    • Girl says:

      Important to note that the 2% failure rate with perfect use jumps to close to 20% with typical use for both pregnancy and STI prevention when it comes to condoms.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:


        I know those statistics now! LOL.

        Honestly I never thought about it before hand just because I have only ever been with my husband and there was a time when I hadn’t wanted kids so I was on birth control but it just didn’t work. That stuff made me sick and fat. And then we just used the normal types of protection. I just always assumed if you wrapped it up. or wore a diaphragm, you were mostly good. And then when we stopped prevention, and I got pregnant right away. Like I know the date I conceived! LOL. And the second time around, I really thought we were doing well and being careful but sometimes you just can’t always be planning getting your groove on around ovulation dates LOL.

        I was young too, I felt I “knew” enough that I didn’t have to ask my OBGYN certain questions. My mom used to tell me that as a woman I needed to know everything about my body and I never cared about that until I had my kids. And I think strangely I adopted that attitude even more when my mom passed. I just did not care.

        Anyway, I am done. Two is enough for me. Do you know they would not let me get my tubes tied in PA because I was under 25 and didn’t have a girl (I have two boys)? I took my ass straight to NY and had the procedure done. I don’t seem myself settling down again, but I definitely knew that I didn’t want kids. So we have the right to abortion but not a right to have our shit snipped if we desire?

      • Lucky Charm says:

        @ The Original Victoria,
        When my cousin was 22, she and her husband decided they were done having kids (they had two, a girl and a boy). The doctor refused to tie her tubes because of her age. Never mind that she and her husband both agreed that they didn’t want more kids, the Dr. thought that she “might” change her mind one day in the future. This was in CA. Seriously, if you know that you don’t want children (or any more children) that is so much better to not have them than having unwanted kids because someone else dictated that you had to, or having an abortion.

      • Jacqueline says:

        @ TheOriginalVictoria: You cant get a tubal ligation because it is designed to keep poor people poor. The poor dont believe in abortions. The poor are also more responsible. They will step up to the plate and keep it. Thats everybody from poor blacks, to Latinos to poor whites. If you have a kid at the wrong age or one too many, it will just keep you poor. A lot of women wont go through an abortion. If your on welfare, the government owns you. You wont go forward in 18 years cus you’re still receiving. You wont work harder cus you will get used to the free money. Your kid will probably end up on welfare during his/her life as well. It will become a way of life. (Whites are the largest group on welfare and abortions.) Also an abortion traumatizes women so even if you have it done, it will effect your performance at work, home, society, earning potential etc. That is crazyness of it all. Its all designed to mess people up and keep the poor poor. You cant snip but you can have another and another or an abortion.

    Meh. He’s the one who’s going to have to pay for child support.

  34. lucy2 says:

    He seems like a d-bag idiot, but…I can’t help but like him on The Voice (I usually hate “reality” shows but for some reason do like that one). He seems to take it seriously and does a good job.

  35. Ravensdaughter says:

    TMI! Besides, anyone who has had sex ed knows that those little guys can still can get in there if they are close enough. As for as STD’s, they don’t care if ejaculation has occurred or not. @ Victoria-thanks for explaining the “other way” the swimmers can swim..
    Wear a condom, douchebag!

    I actually have a lot more respect for him after watching that video clip. He was very classy when Stern was pressing him on Christina’s weight gain.

    Yes, the pulling-out comment is TMI but Howard Stern’s show is all about TMI. Calm the F down people.

  38. JustaGirl says:

    I can’t use birth control, and my husband hates condoms so we use the withdrawal method (along with NFP somewhat). In 13 years of marriage, we’ve only ever gotten pregnant when we’ve tried.

    Of course, we’re monogamous and we understand there’s a chance for failure, and we’re perfectly okay with that! If we were sure no more kids would be in our future, one or both of us would take permanent measures.

    Anyway, it’s working for us, but to be honest, I’d be ecstatic for a happy little accident right now. =)

    • Erinn says:

      And that’s the thing. It doesn’t fail for everyone, but on this post it’s failed for a lot. Things happen, I guess. If you’re really careful, things can work out. Sometimes mistakes happen, but obviously you’re in a good place, and a ‘happy accident’ is okay if it happened. It depends a lot on how well a man knows his body… so some can manage to do this successfully, some can’t. Good for you though 🙂

      • JustaGirl says:

        Exactly. If my situation were different, I’d have to find something that would work or keep my legs shut. 😀 We’ve been fortunate it’s worked for us!

  39. GirlyGirl says:

    I met this guy in toronto

    He is a world-class douche while at the same time being a whiny little mamma’s boy.

  40. Stubbylove says:

    He gives me the pervy/ego-maniac vibe – not a good combo.

  41. ladybert62 says:

    I doubt any woman would fall for that line – get real buddy or start saving for child support!

    Those clothes are hideous!

  42. fabgrrl says:

    Maybe that is *his* birth control method. But the girlfriend could be using something else – pills, patch, depo, IUD, etc.

  43. gee_gee says:

    What a knob he is. If I was her, my foolproof method of birth control would be “not having sex with Adam Levine”.

  44. Stacy Dresden says:

    Wow. Great message, Adam! I have always thought this guy was a total d-bag. And Maroon 5 is probably one of the lamest bands in history!

  45. RocketMerry says:

    Speaking of sex and moronic “rockstars” with douchie tendencies that judge on music talent shows… there’s a blind revealed that I found absolutely shocking about Joel Madden cheating on Nicole Richie.
    I’m just putting it here, to make this news a bit interesting (Gosh, Levine is so boring…).

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Did he cheat with that chick that one of the Jonas brothers just dumped?

      • Lee says:

        yep. at least according to the blind. Delta Goodram. And I only even know who she is BECAUSE of the blind item. So whether it’s true or not, I guess it worked to her advantage…

  46. Roxy750 says:

    What’s with the highwaters? yikes… Don’t understand why models go for not so hot musicians that are scruffy

  47. Kimbob says:

    Well, at least their first thoughts about each other before meeting were pretty much spot on….LOL!

  48. aud says:

    I’m pretty sure he’s joking about it being foolproof.

    But I think it’s a fine method for a couple who don’t want a child right now, but also are prepared to handle one.

    That’s why my husband and I use it. We’d rather wait another 6-12 months, but if we end up with a baby we won’t be devastated.

    Anyone not prepared to handle a baby shouldn’t be using it, of course. Heck, they should be doubling up and using condoms and BC

  49. the original bellaluna says:

    I really hope he was joking. All we need is a bunch of gullible, horny teenagers trying to randomly practise the pull out method.

  50. Meanchick says:

    Okay. Does ‘pulling out’ prevent diseases? I think not. What a stupid and irresponsible thing to say whether it was a joke or not. He is the douchiest douche that ever douched a douche.

  51. Lee says:

    I mostly take offense at Adam Levine being described as a “Rock Star”.

  52. NM6804 says:

    Levine is Le Douche for me. That is all…

  53. chloe says:

    I thought he was good looking until he started speaking and his high pitched voice turned me off. I think it’s funny when a contestant picks someone besides him on the Voice, he sits there and pouts.
    I was watching E’s fashion police Grammys last week and they showed him and the Rancic chic said something about his smug face, I don’t think she cares for him.

  54. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    @Lucky…yeah I don’t get that. I honestly wanted my tubes tied at 19, that’s how serious I was about having no kids. IUDs, I don’t like because I’ve had girfriends who wound up getting bacterial infections and had fishy smelling issues and if their men were packing, they could feel it during sex. Hell no.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      My friend had a tubal ligation, and now has her period for 14+ days straight every month! Her doctor suggested either a partial hysterectomy or mirena.

      • Ruddyzookeeper says:

        I’m suprised your friend’s doc hasn’t talked to her about ablation. This would stop or at the very least lessen the length and severity. Sorry to butt in!

  55. hopperlea says:

    Count me in too for just having a baby due to the ‘pull-out method.’ Oh well shit happens and my little guy is a cutie. Now I say that, but in the beginning I was about to cut of my man’s balls.

  56. bluhare says:

    I could have sworn I read these two broke up.

  57. Peachy says:

    Am pulling out of this post… Feeling nauseous already!

  58. truetalk says:

    you mean no one else thinks d pull out method is cruel and unjust punishment?.

  59. twocents says:

    I’ve been with my husband for 12 years, he’s 41, and we usually use the pull-out method. I’ve never gotten pregnant this way. I trust him, he’s experienced and knows what he’s doing. We have a child, she was conceived when we purposely tried to get pregnant. I don’t think it’s for everyone, but I do believe the 4% failure rate of this birth control method.

  60. Lindy says:

    Hmmm… Unattractive (kind of pointy head, tries-too-hard stubble, awkwardly-spaced eyes). Horrendously bad attitude. Inability to keep it in his pants. Rather unoriginal, and in any case, nothing new or creative in recent memory.

    Yeah, thanks, Adam whoever. Bye now. Nobody gives a good goddamn about your ridiculous birth control TMI.

  61. BooRadleys says:

    For those pull out method users, what’s the cleanup process like? My girlfriend is on the pill to protect against pregnancy. I like to pull out for the visual effect from time-time…..she’s def not a fan of the.. well….messy cleanup. She said only porn chics do it because they get paid to. According to many posters pulling out is their choice of b/c. So obviously the end process isn’t an issue for them. Any suggestions on how I can get my girlfriend to feel comfortable and enjoy it?

    • Maguita says:

      Send her to Adam Levine. He might change her mind for you.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      @mags, over at D-Listed Adam claims they use a towel and he leaves it there for the maid to clean up 😳
      So even Adam Levine isn’t allowed to do THAT.

      @Boo, if she’s not comfortable with “the messy clean-up,” as you call it, perhaps you should just respect her wishes and do what she IS comfortable with. Some people feel like THAT is a sign of disrespect/domination or that it’s like a dog marking its territory.

    • NYC_girl says:

      I never had a problem with it and don’t find it offensive but you should clean her off afterwards. Have something nearby (towel? tshirt?). Probably a good idea not to aim for her face. If she really doesn’t like it, don’t do it. OR, just use a condom = no mess/no pregnancy. : )

  62. BooRadleys says:

    I can’t see myself “going in” after Levine….maybe Collin Farrell because that would be respectable.

  63. skuddles says:

    Maybe it’s just the flu but this headline turned my stomach – ICK!!

  64. NinaG says:

    I hope when you referred to the term “Rockstar” you were using that loosely. I would hardly describe Maroon 5 as Rock stars, not that they have not had some catchy toons…lol But I have always heard on the side that Adam Levine was a bit of a douche!

  65. Kate #2 says:

    You know, as a good feminist I applaud what birth control has done to free women from biological shackles. But it has to be said, it’s reversed Darwin. The stupider you are, the likelier to spread your genes far and wide.

  66. Feebee says:

    Okay so he uses the withdrawal method, what does she use?

    I really hope he’s joking… he was starting to grow on me after years of thinking he was just a douche.

  67. ZenB!tch says:

    I’ve always thought he was creepy and Maroon 5 was mundane.

    It’s odd because I normally have a thing for Jewish guys but not this one… UGH!

  68. deva says:

    I am laying in bed reading this while breastfeeding my ovulation tracking oopsie. I mean, third child.

  69. crtb says:

    Did he say what he uses so he wont catch a STD? I don’t think pulling out works for that.

  70. Jacqueline says:

    Pulling out has the worst guarantee. Let me explain basic reproduction:

    When a woman at her month’s fertlity peak, around the 11-14th day in her cycle, she is the most likeliest to fall pregnant. Men can sense fertility changes in a woman during each week of the monthly cycle. The day she is the most fertile she will be the most horniest and he will also be very sexually interested. That will most likely be THE night of conception. Even educated married people still overlook this factor! You dont have to have sex often to get pregnant, just do it at the right time. People of both genders actually do nothing to prevent pregnancy/abortion that it amazes me with the availability, choice and knowledge. The dumber the person, the more likely they will throw caution to the wind. (A college degree doesnt mean your intelligent either.)

    Pulling out even the most experienced man will fail at least a couple of times in his lifetime. She is very willing to get knocked up by him to live off the child support and have a fancy rich kid, and he is like the majority of men who think they have it in control. The night where she is super fertile, most wont be able to pull out or pull out fast enough.

    Its not rocket science. Nature is only about reproducing, surviving, and warfare. Nothing else. The rest is biology (behavior). (Genes arent that BIG of a deal as people think.) Some people are just too dumb to not get it or too confident to think it wont happen to them. 2nd and 3rd World poverty and teens I can understand but why abortions are so prevelent at 60% of all American women STILL amazes me! Self development (intelligence, curiosity, motivation, self-control, empathy, adaptibility) is THE greatest birth control. You WILL WANT to take care of yourself as you are aware of the dangers and how easy it occurs. (People who have abortions are no more responsible than people who have kids off welfare. They took the easy way out afterall.)

  71. Snowflake says:

    wow, so he doesn’t use a condom. And he’s a musician. who prob has slept around a lot. do you get where i’m going? what about diseases? you can get gov. assistance for a baby. what about the diseases you can catch?

  72. janie says:

    I don’t understand this woman’s style. She always looks like she’s about to flash us. Lots of women have great bodies and manage to cover up and still show off their assets.

  73. Chrissy says:

    I’m thinking he meant it sarcastically. Or maybe deep down he really wants to be a dad.

  74. B says:

    Ugh…he is cute, but clearly shallow swimmers. I used to work w/ Blake @ WBR. He is really the sweetest, truest good guy…

  75. Isa says:

    Did they really say they would sit down and decide what to do if she got pregnant? Um…if you’re not on board with an accidental pregnancy you should be doing a lot more than pulling out to prevent it!
    My second baby was created using this method as well me trying to keep track of my cycles. Determined little bugger he was!
    I obviously suck at knowing my body. Back to the pill I go! Crazy side effects and all.

  76. chantal says:

    Sex without a condom AND with a rock “star”! No wonder AIDS is still around…

  77. RhymesWithSilver says:

    Hardly anyone has mentioned IUDs. I got one recently and it’s great! If I didn’t know it was there, I *wouldn’t* know it was there. It was easy and painless for me, and is for most women. Something like 40% of women in some European countries have them and they have the highest satisfaction rate of any contraceptive. So don’t let the negative reports scare you- you can choose a hormone-free one that’s more effective than tubal ligation and way less likely to screw with your body than just about anything else. And no, your man should not be able to feel it unless there is something wrong or he’s imagining things- it’s INSIDE your uterus, and he is not. There are little strings that let you check it’s in properly, but if they’re the correct length, neither you nor he should feel them. Ask your gyno!

    • Isa says:

      Do you haved the copper one? My dr said it would make my period heavier.
      I have the Mirena. My husband could feel the strings poking him, it caused acne so bad it hurt to smile and I could feel it. I didn’t even realize I was in pain until it was removed and it was finally gone.

  78. Sophie says:

    That dude is so skeevy. I can’t stand to look at him.

    I hope she gets pregnant…and really, really fat!

    I just don’t buy this. Not a big Maroon 5 fan, but I have noticed that Adam is a hugely sarcastic guy. It’s got to be a joke.

    Liberty goes both ways. The government is not our daddy!!!! Women stand up! Men, stand up for women!

Then support this petition and tell local, state, and federal leaders that women don’t need a governmental daddy, they need health rights! We must protect health rights for every American citizen! If you sign, tell your friends to sign too. This is a very serious matter, as you very well know. I know you are busy but please sign one of them and show the radicals in this country they don’t have the power:

    this guy? nothing about appeals remotely attractive, but i guess there’s no accounting for taste. let’s just hope a dozen “pull out” babies don’t show up on his doorstep.

  83. TG says:

    You guys are hilareous on here. Thanks for the laughs of the day regarding this douche. And wouldn’t the pull out method be pure torture for both parties? I couldn’t imagine being in a situation like that. I am surprised that so many people actually use this method.
