CHAPTER VI. 

 

SEXUAL INTERCOURSE--ITS LAWS AND 

CONDITIONS--ITS USE AND ABUSE. 

 

 

There is an increasing and alarming prevalence of nervous ailments and 

complicated disorders that could be traced to have their sole origin 

from this source. Hypochondria, in its various phases, results from 

the premature and unnatural waste of the seminal fluid. Then speedily 

ensues a lack of natural heat, a deficiency of vital power, and 

consequently indigestion, melancholy, languor, and dejection ensue; 

the victim becomes enervated and spiritless, loses the very attributes 

of man, and premature old age soon follows. 

 

 

IT IS A PREVALENT ERROR 

 

that it is necessary for the semen to be ejected at certain times from 

the body; that its retention is incompatible with sound health and 

vigor of body and mind. This is a very fallacious idea. The seminal 

fluid is too precious--nature bestows too much care in its elaboration 

for it to be wasted in this unproductive manner. It is intended, when 

not used for the purpose of procreation, to be reabsorbed again into 

the system, giving vigor of body, elasticity and strength to the mind, 

making the individual strong, active, and self-reliant. When kept as 

nature intended, it is a perpetual fountain of life and energy--a 

vital force which acts in every direction, a motive power which 

infuses manhood into every organ of the brain and every fiber of the 

body. 

 

 

THE LAW OF SEXUAL MORALITY 

 

for childhood is one of utter negation of sex. Every child should be 

kept pure and free from amative excitement and the least amative 

indulgence, which is unnatural and doubly hurtful. No language is 

strong enough to express the evils of amative excitement and unnatural 

indulgence before the age of puberty; and the dangers are so great 

that I see no way so safe as 

 

 

THOROUGH INSTRUCTION 

 

regarding them at the earliest age. A child may be taught, simply as a 

matter of science, as one learns botany, all that is needful to know, 

and such knowledge may protect it from the most terrible evils. 

 

The law for childhood is perfect purity, which cannot be too carefully 

guarded and protected by parents, teachers, and all caretakers. The 

law for youth is perfect continence--a pure vestalate alike in both 

sexes. No indulgence is required by one more than the other--for both 

nature has made the same provision. The natures of both are alike, and 

any--the least--exercise of the amative function is an injury to one 

as to the other. 

 

 

MEN EXPECT 

 

that women shall come to them in marriage chaste and pure from the 

least defilement. Women have a right to expect the same of their 

husbands. Here the sexes are upon a perfect equality. 

 

On this subject, Dr. Carpenter (physiological works) has written like
