Just the same penalty as murdering, coveting your neighbor's ass, or not going to church)....you can put your 12 kids to bed and then you and your spouse can do anything and everything. As long as it ends up P in V. If not, you have sinned. It must end up P in V. Oh, go ahead and muck about with temperature taking and mucous sniffing and calendars, but any sex must end up P in V. Pornography and self-abuse are wrong-o, because any heating up of the sex organs must end in the chance the woman can get knocked up.
The Catholic Church does teach that sexual relations should ideally culminate in the particular act you mention, yes. It doesn't teach that you will "burn in hell", necessarily, for violating that one of its teachings, or for that matter for violating any of its other teachings. The Catholic Church has never made any dogmatic
pronouncements, as far as I know, about how many people are going to hell, or whether any particular person happens to be there. (Possibly Judas, but then, Jesus Himself came very close to implying that Judas was in hell, so that's not really on the church). As far as I know, you can be a Catholic in good standing and believe that hell is empty
