CHAPTER FORTY-THREE 

 

ADVICE TO FRIGID WOMEN, PARTICULARLY WIVES 

 

Advice to Frigid Women--Attitude of Different Men Towards Frigid 

Wives--Orgasm a Subjective Feeling--A Justifiable Innocent 

Deception--The Case of a Demi-Mondaine. 

 

 

I wish to give you a piece of advice which is of extremely great 

importance to you. I hesitated somewhat before writing this chapter, 

but the welfare of so many women depends upon following this advice, 

and I have seen the lives of so many wives spoiled on account of not 

having followed it, that I decided to devote a few words to the 

subject. 

 

As you know, about one-third or one-quarter of all women (in other 

words, one out of every three or four) are sexually frigid. They 

either have little or no sexual desire, or if they do have, they 

experience no voluptuous sensation during the act, and never have an 

orgasm. If you are unmarried, well and good. But if you are married 

and happen to belong to the frigid type, then _don't inform your 

husband of the fact_. It may lead to great and permanent trouble. Some 

husbands don't care. Some are even glad if their wives are frigid. 

They can then consult their own wishes in the matter, they can have 

intercourse whenever they want and _the way they want_. They do not 

have to accommodate themselves to their wives' ways, they do not have 

to prolong the act until she gets the orgasm, etc. In short, some 

husbands consider a frigid wife a blessing, a God-sent treasure. But, 

as I mentioned several times before, in sexual matters every man is a 

law unto himself, and some men feel extremely bad and displeased when 

they find out that their wives have "no feeling." Some become furious, 

some become disgusted. Some lose all pleasure in intercourse, and some 

claim to be unable to have intercourse with any woman who is not 

properly responsive. Some begin to go to other women, while some 

threaten or demand a divorce (of course, such men cannot really love 

their wives; they may use their wives' frigidity as an _excuse_ to get 

rid of them). 

 

Now, a man has no way of knowing whether a woman has a feeling during 

the act or not, whether or no she enjoys it, whether or no she has an 

orgasm. These are subjective feelings, and the man cannot know them 

unless you tell him. If you belong to the independent kind, if you 

scorn simulation and deceit, if, as the price of being perfectly 

truthful, you are willing if necessary to part with your husband or 

give him a divorce, well and good. You are a free human being, and 

nobody has a right to tell you what to do with your body. But if you 

care for your husband, if you care for your home and perhaps children, 

and do not want any disruption, then the only thing for you to do is 

not to apprise your husband of your frigid condition. And it won't
