Summary

An unusual treatise on sex education, dating back to 1922 in America. There is a strong bias towards abstinence and indeed there are threats of hellfire and brimstone as a result of, shall we say, 'interference'?

With its hectoring tone and finger wagging stance, it is alarming to think that this book was treated as a serious authority on the subject of sex and even more alarming that, even today, some of the points it makes are taken seriously in certain parts of the world.

We may listen with some amusement (and some horror) and even think some of the ideas quaint in the extreme, but the book has been reprinted in the USA recently, with no mention that current thinking on matters sexual may have moved on since 1922...
