"sinned" before she knew him. And unless the husband is a broad-minded 

man and loves her truly and unless she made a clean breast of 

everything to him before marriage, her life is continuous torture. But 

even if the girl escaped pregnancy, the mere finding out that she had 

an illicit experience deprives her of social standing, or makes her a 

social outcast and entirely destroys or greatly minimizes her chances 

of ever marrying and establishing a home of her own. She must remain a 

lonely wanderer to the end of her days. 

 

The enormous difference in the results of a misstep in a boy and a 

girl is clearly seen, and for this reason alone, if for no other, sex 

instruction is of more importance to the girl than it is to the boy. 

 

But there are other important reasons, and one of them is beautifully 

and truthfully expressed by Byron in his two well-known lines. 

 

Man's love is of man's life a thing apart, 

'Tis woman's whole existence. 

 

Yes, love is a woman's whole life. 

 

Some modern women might object to this. They might say that this was 

true of the woman of the past, who was excluded from all other avenues 

of human activity. The woman of the present day has other interests 

besides those of Love. But I claim that this is true of only a small 

percentage of women; and in even this small minority of women, social, 

scientific and artistic activities cannot take the place of love; no 

matter how busy and successful these women may be, they will tell you 

if you enjoy their confidence that they are unhappy, if their love 

life is unsatisfactory. Nothing, nothing can fill the void made by the 

lack of love. The various activities may help to cover up the void, to 

protect it from strange eyes, they cannot fill it. For essentially 

woman is made for love. Not exclusively, but essentially, and a woman 

who has had no love in her life has been a failure. The few exceptions 

that may be mentioned only emphasize the rule. 

 

But not only psychically is a woman's love and sex life more important 

than a man's, physically she is also much more cognizant of her sex 

and much more hampered by the manifestation of her sex nature than 

man is. To take but one function, menstruation. From the age 13 or 14 

to the age of forty-five or fifty it is a monthly reminder to woman 

that she is a woman, that she is a creature of sex; and, while to many 

women this periodically recurring function is only a source of some 

annoyance or discomfort, to a great number it is a cause of pain, 

headache, suffering, or complete disability. Man has no such 

phenomenon to annoy him practically his whole life. 

 

But more important are the results of love-union, of sex relations. A 

man after a sexual relation is just as free as he was before. A woman,
