The publishers of this work offer no apology for presenting it to the readingpublic, since the wide prevalence of the evils which it exposes is sufficientwarrant for its publication. The subjects with which it deals are of vitalconsequence to the human race; and it is of the utmost importance thatevery effort should be made to dispel the gross ignorance which almostuniversally prevails, by the wide diffusion, in a proper manner, of information of the character contained in this volume.This book has been written not for the young only, nor for any single classof persons, but for all who are old enough to be capable of understandingand appreciating it. The prime object of its preparation has been to callattention to the great prevalence of sexual excesses of all kinds, and theheinous crimes resulting from some forms of sexual transgression, and topoint out the terrible results which inevitably follow the violation of sexuallaw.In order to make more clear and comprehensible the teachings of naturerespecting the laws regulating the sexual function, and the evils resultingfrom their violation, it has seemed necessary to preface the practical part of the subject by a concise description of the anatomy of reproduction. In thisportion of the work especial pains has been taken to avoid anything likeindelicacy of expression, yet it has not been deemed advisable to sacrificeperspicuity of ideas to any prudish notions of modesty. It is hoped that thereader will bear in mind that the language of science is always chaste initself, and that it is only through a corrupt imagination that it becomesinvested with impurity. The author has constantly endeavored to impartinformation in the most straightforward, simple, and concise manner.The work should be judiciously circulated, and to secure this the publisherswill take care to place it in the hands of agents competent to introduce itwith discretion; yet it may be read without injury by any one who issufficiently mature to understand it. Great care has been taken to excludefrom its pages those accounts of the habits of vicious persons, anddescriptions of the mechanical accessories of vice, with which many worksupon sexual subjects abound.
