children, we will grant permission to the marriage in the vast 

majority of cases. The subject of venereal disease and marriage will 

be further discussed in separate chapters. 

 

Venereal disease, I have to repeat, is terrible enough in itself, 

without any exaggeration, without picturing it in too black colors. 

And it is necessary that people should not have too black an idea of 

it. It is necessary that they know that there are thousands and tens 

of thousands of patients who suffered with gonorrhea or syphilis and 

who were perfectly cured, who married, and whose wives remained 

perfectly well, and who gave birth to perfectly healthy untainted 

children. 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN 

 

VENEREAL PROPHYLAXIS 

 

Necessity for Douching Before and After Suspicious Intercourse-- 

Formulae for Douches--Precautions Against Non-venereal Sources of 

Infection--Syphilis Transmitted by Dentist's Instruments-- 

Manicurists and Syphilis--Promiscuous Kissing a Source of 

Syphilitic Infection. 

 

 

In his book, _Sex Knowledge for Men_, the author treated the subject 

of prevention of venereal disease very thoroughly. Men need this 

knowledge. As men _will_ indulge in illicit relations, we must teach 

them to guard themselves against venereal infection. We must do it not 

only for their own sake, but for the sake of their wives and children. 

For, infection in the man may mean infection in his wife and children. 

But as women readers of this book are not likely to indulge in 

promiscuous relations with strangers, a detailed discussion of the 

subject would be out of place. 

 

I will merely say, that where the woman has a suspicion that her 

husband is in an infectious state, she should abstain from relations 

with him until she is sure that he is safe. But where for some reason 

a suspicions intercourse is indulged in, the woman should use an 

antiseptic douche _before_ and _after_ intercourse. Where it is 

inconvenient to use a douche both before and after, a douche after 

will have to suffice, but it is much safer and surer to use the douche 

both before and after. When you use a douche there is always some of 

the solution left in the vagina and that destroys wholly or in part 

the infective germs. The following makes an effective douche: Dissolve 

a tablet of bichloride (they come on the market of the weight of about 

7-1/2 grains) in two quarts of water--hot, lukewarm or cold. Use before 

intercourse a small amount--about a pint or half a pint, and use the 

balance after intercourse. Instead of the bichloride you may use a 

tablespoonful of carbolic acid, or two tablets of chinosol, or a 

tablespoonful of lysol, or two tablespoonfuls of boric acid. 

 

Instead of the douche an antiseptic jelly in a collapsible tin tube
