such demands from married people living in the same house and perhaps 

occupying the same bed? It must be borne in mind that as soon as the 

wife has reached the menopause all relations must cease, because she 

can no longer become pregnant, and intercourse without a probable or 

possible pregnancy is a sin. Also remember that no matter how 

beautiful, young and passionate the wife may be, if she has some 

little trouble which makes pregnancy impossible, sex relations must be 

absolutely abstained from. And of course if the husband or wife is 

sterile, all relations must be renounced forever, no matter how strong 

the libido may be in one or both. 

 

It is strange that Nature did not act according to the formula of our 

sex fanatics; no pregnancy, no intercourse. If she had meant it to be 

that way, she would have abolished sexual desire in woman immediately 

after the menopause. Unfortunately this is not the case. For we know 

that the sexual libido in women after the menopause is often and for 

several years stronger than before. Why? Nor has Nature abolished the 

sexual instinct and the passionate desire for sex relations in all 

those men and women who are for some reason or other sterile, or 

otherwise so defective that no child can result from the union. 

 

As I stated at the beginning, it is a waste of time to _argue_ the 

matter. Those who believe that sex relations are for racial purposes 

only, are welcome to their belief, and are welcome to live up to it. 

(How few of them do, though, honestly and consistently?) We must 

reiterate our opinion that the sex instinct has other high purposes 

besides that of perpetuating the race, and sex relations may and 

should be indulged in as often as they are conducive to man's and 

woman's physical, mental and spiritual health. No iron-clad rules can 

be laid down as to the frequency. For some people three times a year 

may be sufficient, others may require relations three times a month 

(the best for the average) and still others may not be satisfied with 

less than three times a week. The human _libido sexualis_ cannot be 

put into an iron mould, and you should pay no attention to religious 

fanatics who are ignorant of physiology and psychology and who can 

only blunder and bungle up things.

VAGINISMUS 

 

Vaginismus--Dyspareunia--Difference Between Vaginismus and 

Dyspareunia--Adherent Clitoris a Cause of Masturbation and 

Convulsions. 

 

 

By the term vaginismus we understand a painful spasm or contraction of 

the vaginal orifice which makes intercourse very difficult, or 

impossible. 

 

Certain cases of vaginismus, or rather false vaginismus, may be due to 

laceration or inflammation of the vaginal orifice, but in genuine
