Twashtri took the woman back. 

 

But eight days later the man came again to the god and said: "My 

Lord, my life is very solitary since I returned this creature. I 

remember she danced before me, singing. I recall how she glanced 

at me from the corner of her eye, how she played with me, clung 

to me. Give her back to me," and Twashtri returned the woman to 

him. Three days only passed and Twashtri saw the man coming to 

him again. "My Lord," said he, "I do not understand exactly how 

it is, but I am sure that the woman causes me more annoyance 

than pleasure. I beg you to relieve me of her." 

 

But Twashtri cried: "Go your way and do the best you can." And 

the man cried: "I cannot live with her!" "Neither can you live 

without her!" replied Twashtri. 

 

And the man went away sorrowful, murmuring: "Woe is me, I can 

neither live with nor without her." 

 

 

 

 

PREFACE 

 

 

In the first chapter of this book I have shown, I believe 

convincingly, why sex knowledge is even more important for women than 

it is for men. I have examined carefully the books that have been 

written for girls and women, and I know that it is not bias, nor 

carping criticism, but strict honesty that forces me to say that I 

have not found one satisfactory girl's or woman's sex book. There are 

some excellent books for girls and women on general hygiene; but on 

sex hygiene, on the general manifestations of the sex instinct, on sex 

ethics--none. I have attempted to write such a book. Whether I have 

succeeded--fully, partially or not at all--is not for me to say, 

though I have my suspicions. But this I know: in writing this book I 

have been strictly honest with myself, from first page to last. 

Whether everything I have written is the truth, I do not know. But at 

least I believe that it is--or I would not have written it. And I can 

solemnly say that the book is free from any cant, hypocrisy, 

falsehood, exaggeration or compromise, nor has any attempt been made 

in any chapter to conciliate the stupid, the ignorant, the pervert, or 

the sexless. 

 

As in all my other books I have used plain, honest English. Not any 

plainer than necessary, but plain enough to avoid obscurity and 

misconception. 

 

Science and art are both necessary to human happiness. This is not the 

place to discuss the relative importance of the two. And, while I have 

no patience with art-for-art's-sake, I recognize that the scientist 

can not be put into a narrow channel and ordered to go into a certain 

definite direction. Scientific investigations which seemed aimless and 

useless have sometimes led to highly important results, and I would 

not disparage science for its own sake. It has its uses. Nevertheless
