often of false-knowledge, untruthful ideas concerning matters of the 

most serious import. It is sad enough to think how such persons may work 

results harmful to themselves, but it is even sadder still to realize 

that these same ignorant young women must eventually gain their real 

knowledge through sad experience--experience paid for not only by 

themselves but also by their children. It is a hard saying, but a true 

one, that the knowledge of many young wives and mothers is to be gained 

by experience paid for by their (as yet) unborn children. 

 

The writer of the present work is one of the rapidly growing number of 

thinking persons who believe that the time has come to educate the race 

concerning the importance of sane instruction concerning the functions 

of sex. He, and those who think as he does, believe that the time has 

come to "Turn on the Light!" They believe that the importance of the 

subject will be realized by all intelligent persons, once that their 

attention is directed to the subject, and once they have considered it 

apart from the old prejudices and distorted customs. When public opinion 

on this subject is reformed, then will the taboo fall away from the body 

of truth; then will the subject take its place among the "respectable" 

topics which may be considered, discussed, and taught, without loss of 

caste or prestige. 

 

In a few decades, perhaps even much sooner, it will be regarded as quite 

reprehensible to permit young persons to enter into the relationship of 

marriage without a sane, practical knowledge of their own reproductive 

organism and the functions thereof, and of their physiological duties to 

themselves, to their companions in marriage, and to their children born 

or to be born. We may even see the practical application of the somewhat 

startling prophecy of Newell Dwight Hillis, D. D., who said: "The State 

that makes a man study two years before a license as druggist is given; 

that makes a young lawyer or doctor study three years before being 

permitted to practice; ought to ask the young man or young woman to pass 

an equally rigid examination before license is given to found an 

American home, and set up an American family." 

 

While the information above alluded to should be given alike to the 

young husband and the young wife, it cannot be doubted that the latter 

is the one of the pair who is most in need of this kind of instruction. 

While both the young man and the young woman require this instruction, 

the need is the greater in the case of the young woman, by the very 

nature of the case. The sex functions and processes play a much more
