An Outline of Sexual Morality   By: (1882-1965)

Book cover

In "An Outline of Sexual Morality" by Kenneth Ingram, the author delves into the intricate and often controversial topic of sexual ethics. Through a well-structured and thought-provoking approach, Ingram provides readers with a comprehensive overview of various perspectives on sexual morality, pushing readers to contemplate their own beliefs.

One commendable aspect of this book is the balanced treatment of the subject matter. Ingram skillfully offers a diverse range of viewpoints, from religious and cultural perspectives to secular and philosophical arguments. By doing so, he enables readers to explore different moral frameworks and prompts them to critically examine their own beliefs. No matter one's stance on sexual morality, this book encourages introspection and broadens understanding.

Moreover, Ingram's writing style is accessible and engaging. While the subject matter can be complex and sensitive, the author manages to present concepts in a clear and concise manner. This makes the book approachable for newcomers to the topic and prevents it from becoming alienating or overwhelming.

One notable strength of "An Outline of Sexual Morality" is the inclusion of real-life examples and case studies. This allows readers to connect theoretical concepts to practical situations, enhancing the book's impact and relevance. Additionally, Ingram cites a wide range of academic sources and studies, further bolstering the book's credibility and providing readers with additional resources for further exploration.

However, one potential limitation of this book is that it predominantly focuses on Western perspectives and primarily explores heterosexual relationships. While this may be due to the author's expertise or contextual relevance, an expanded discussion on diverse sexual identities and non-traditional relationships could have made the book more inclusive and comprehensive.

In conclusion, "An Outline of Sexual Morality" by Kenneth Ingram is a valuable resource for anyone interested in navigating the complex landscape of sexual ethics. With its well-rounded approach, accessible prose, and inclusion of real-world examples, the book invites readers to reflect on their own beliefs, challenging them to critically engage with this important facet of human experience. Although it could have benefited from broader inclusivity, this book is an insightful read that provides a solid foundation for discussions on sexual morality.

Author's Note

I am anxious to take this opportunity of thanking those friends who have helped me by valuable suggestion and criticism in correcting the proofs of this small book. In particular I desire to mention Canon Lacey and Dr. Griffin, and to apologize for the amount of time which I must have stolen from them.

Any honest inquiry into the Primal Instincts of humanity will necessarily lead to a clearer understanding of their nature, their functions, and their potentialities, and so will help to pave the way for the appearance of a healthier and happier race of men. The dictum "Learn to know yourself," inscribed on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, has never been of more vital importance, both individually and nationally, than it is to day, and the various schools of modern psychological thought, which are steadily opening up those hitherto scarcely explored regions whence flow the springs of human actions, are gradually clearing away the ignorance which has been the real cause of so much disease and distress...
