Excerpt

ishment, clothing and protection under the parental roof for a period varying from eighteen to twenty years, or even longer.

c. =Support and Protection of Weaker Members of Society.=--Young animals are supported and protected because they are unable to support and protect themselves. If they were not thus cared for the race would become extinct. Now, there are certain individuals, orphans for example, who have, through some accident, been deprived of their natural support and protection. If these weaker members of society, not yet able to support and protect themselves, were not provided for, they would perish and become thus lost to the race. From the time of primeval man to the present, these weaker individuals of society who have been deprived of their natural protectors, have been cared for by the stronger members of society and afforded such support and protection as they may need to make them independent. In a similar way the sick and defective members of society are cared for by the strong. Thus

Don't listen to the above review. Of course this book is out-dated, it was published in 1911! Anyways, here's my review: This is a surprizingly good book! Yes, it is a little out-dated, but what can you expect from a book published in 1911? It's a good book for looking into the mind of psychologists from the early 20th century. Don't expect this book to give you the most recent scientific advice. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book for anybody who is interested in the history of sexuality or psychology.

This book should not be in Science, except possibly as an example of how far medical science has progressed from the time of this book (1911). The book is basically a warning to young Christian men to not masturbate or have sex before marriage, and to only have sex a couple times a month at most after marriage. Oh yeah, and also to not have sex with your wife for one year after first learning she is pregnant.
The author tries to give sciencey-sounding reasons for the above, but almost nothing is traceable to actual medical science, instead it is all based on (flawed) arguments of one type or another, typically arguments from authority. It is full of very out-dated assumptions about 'the fairer sex' and marriage.
Some of his 'facts' are just plain wrong, for example he thinks women are most likely to get pregnant either just before or just after menstruation, when in fact it is closer to the opposite-- loosely speaking, pregnancy is most likely if coitus occurs during ovulation, which is typically at the opposite end of the cycle (approx. 2 weeks after/before her 'period').
