point of view than the father of Bridget C, who kicked his daughter 

out penniless into the street, where he had to see her afterwards 

powdered and painted soliciting men and boys? The mother died of a 

broken heart, and the father, unable to bear the constant, daily 

repeated disgrace, became an incorrigible drunkard. 

 

Fathers and mothers! So bring up your daughters, so guard them and 

protect them, that the misfortune of an illegitimate pregnancy may not 

befall them. But if the misfortune has befallen them, then stand by 

them! Do not desert them then in these dark hours, the darkest hours 

in a girl's life. Do not kick them--they are down enough. Stand by 

them, and they will become good women and you will have their eternal 

gratitude. If you do not stand by them, you are worse than the beasts 

of the jungle and deserve their eternal curse. You are unworthy to be, 

or to be called, parents, for you are devoid of the least spark of 

that sacred feeling called Parental Love, a feeling which 

unfortunately in only too many parents is replaced by nothing but the 

most sordid, most brutal egotism.

SEXUAL RELATIONS DURING MENSTRUATION 

 

Heightened Sexual Appetite of Many Women During 

Menstruation--Sexual Intercourse During Menstrual Period--When 

Intercourse May be Permitted--Injection Before Coitus During 

Menstruation--Fallacy of Ancient Idea of Injuriousness. 

 

 

This may seem to some a strange and superfluous question, a question 

which would never present itself. Still the laity would be surprised 

if it learned how frequently nowadays that question is presented to 

the physician who specializes in sex matters. Some husbands come to 

the physician complaining that the menses are the only period during 

which their wives demand sex relations, and ask if something cannot be 

done to cure them of what they consider an abnormal desire. 

 

Biologically considered, the desire on the woman's part for sex 

relations during the menses should not seem strange or abnormal, for 

we must bear in mind that menstruation bears a certain analogy to the 

rut in animals. And animals permit intercourse at no time except 

during the rut. 

 

Recent investigations have disclosed to fact that the number of women 

whose sexual appetite is _heightened_ during the time immediately 

preceding, during, and following the menses, is quite considerable. 

And there is also a smaller percentage of women who experience the 

desire _at no other time except_ during the menses. 

 

Speaking generally, relations during the menses should be discouraged. 

There are several reasons for it. The first reason, which need not be 

gone into in detail, is an esthetic one. The second reason is that 

intercourse during menstruation may in some cases lead to congestion
