what use have all the lectures, books, and maternal injunctions been to 

her? * * * I believe that the sex instinct can be stimulated 

artificially beyond the natural needs, and among the artificial 

stimulants of the sex instinct alcohol occupies the first place. And 

bear in mind that alcohol produces even a stronger effect upon women, in 

exciting the sexual passion, than it does on men. Women are more easily 

upset by stimulants and narcotics, and that is the reason why it is more 

dangerous for women to drink than it is for men. It is impossible to 

give statistics and exact or even approximate figures. But there is no 

question in my mind, in the mind of any careful investigator, that if 

alcoholic beverages could be eliminated, the number of cases of venereal 

infection would be diminished by about one-half. And what is true of 

venereal disease is also true of the seduction of young girls. Alcohol 

is the most efficient weapon that either the refined Don Juan or the 

vulgar pimp has in his possession." 

 

Our advice to the woman who is asked to drink liquor when in the company 

of a man outside of her immediate family circle is emphatically this:

have had the advantage of intelligent maternal advice, it is a fact 

known to all physicians that many mothers permit their young daughters 

to enter into the stage of puberty, with the accompanying menstrual 

flow, without having first instructed the daughter as to the meaning and 

character of this phenomenon of her nature, and without having given 

her advice concerning the proper care of herself during this period. 

 

Physicians constantly experience cases in which the young girl to whom 

the first menstrual flow having come, without previous knowledge on her 

part, has supposed it to be the result of a wound, or of a diseased 

condition, and has attempted to stop the flow by the application of cold 

water. Even where a partial knowledge has been attained by the girl, she 

is found to lack the knowledge of the proper hygienic care of herself 

during the period. The mothers in such cases are criminally negligent, 

and have alluded a false modesty or prudery to interfere with a natural 

and necessary maternal duty. 

 

The approach of the first menstruation is often accompanied by unusual 

physical, mental and emotional changes in the young girl. Her nervous 

system is affected, and she is apt to become irritable or morbid, or 

even somewhat "flighty." Her appetite may become irregular, and there is
