Sex: Avoided Subjects Discussed in Plain English (version 2)

Book cover
By:

Henry Stanton was appalled at the shocking lack of information given to young people about sex and reproduction in his time. He felt this was a crime that needed to be fixed and so he wrote this book explaining sex for young and old. Ignorance of basic reproductive processes he felt led to experimentation that then led to sin, crime and prostitution. While this book is definitely not written in what I would call Plain English, contains some very questionable 'facts' about masturbation and menstruation and might seem very moralistic and dogmatic to our current society, he does hold out high ideas for all in affairs of self respect, love and marriage. If nothing else, this is a delightful peek into the thoughts of almost all people our very recent country's past

Reviews (Rated: 4 Stars - 3 reviews)

Reviewer: - June 11, 2014
May be dated, but has some pretty good ideas and approaches, even if the facts are sometimes incorrect. Interestingly, the author mentions a theory that seems like an early ruminations on epigenetics.
Reviewer: - May 7, 2014
The previous reviewer is dead on. The medical beliefs of the time would be laughed at today. This was really interesting.
Reviewer: - June 1, 2013
Very funny to read how perceptions on sex and other *taboo* topics have remained the same or changed. Very quick read and good for some laughs. Some ideas should remain to this day.
