LESSON III 

 

PHYSIOLOGY OF THE FEMALE SEX ORGANISM 

 

 

In the preceding lesson you have been shown "just what" each one of the 

sex organs of the woman IS. In the present lesson you will be shown 

"just what" each of these organs DOES--what its functions and offices 

are. The preceding lesson dealt with the ANATOMY of these organs; the 

present lesson will deal with the PHYSIOLOGY thereof. 

 

Beginning with the Ovaries, the fundamental and basic sex organs of the 

woman, you will have explained to you the wonderful processes performed 

by each of these organs in turn. 

 

THE OVARIES. The Ovaries in the woman are akin to the testicles in the 

man. Without the Ovaries there would be no ova or eggs, and without the 

ova there would be possible no reproductive purposes, and therefore no 

office for the sex organs at all, for reproduction is the fundamental 

office, function, and purpose of the entire sexual organism. 

 

In our consideration of the office, purposes, and functions of the 

Ovaries, however, we must not overlook a certain secondary phase of such 

functioning. While it is true that the primary purpose of both the 

testicles of the male, and the Ovaries of the female, is that of 

providing SEED from which the offspring of the individual may be 

produced, it is likewise true that there exists a secondary purpose 

which may be called the "individual" purpose as contrasted with the 

"racial" and primary one. 

 

This secondary or "individual" purpose of the Ovaries is that of 

manufacturing certain secretions which are absorbed by the blood of the 

woman, and which play an important part in her physical and mental 

well-being and activities. These secretions begin before puberty in the 

woman, and continue after her menopause; whereas the manufacture of the 

ova begins only at puberty, and ceases with the menopause, keeping pace 

with the manifestation of menstruation in its beginning and its ending. 

 

Nature provides these chemical secretions from the Ovaries for the 

purpose of giving the woman her characteristic physical form and 

contour, her form, her breasts, her long hair, her broad pelvis, her 

soft voice, and other secondary sex characteristics; and also of 

providing for the normal development of the other sex organs. As a proof 

of this statement, science shows us that if a woman's ovaries are 

completely removed there is usually a consequent atrophy or "drying up" 

of the Uterus and the Vagina, and often even of the Vulva. Moreover, the 

presence of this internal secretion manifests in arousing and 

maintaining in the woman her normal sexual desire, and her normal
