THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE FEMALE SEX ORGANS 

 

Function of the Ovaries--Internal Secretion of the 

Ovaries--Function of the Internal Secretion--Number of Ova in the 

Ovaries--The Graafian Follicles--Ovulation--Corpora 

Lutea--Function of the Fallopian Tubes--Function of the 

Vagina--Functions of the Vulva, Clitoris and Mons 

Veneris--Function of the Breasts--Besides Secreting Milk Breast 

Has Sexual Function--The Orgasm--Pollutions in Women--Secondary 

Sex Characters--Differences Between Woman and Man. 

 

 

The importance of an organ depends upon its _function_, upon what it 

does, and not so much upon what it is. It is important to know the 

size, structure and location of an organ, but it is still more 

important to know its function; in other words, for our purpose it is 

more important to know the _physiology_ than the anatomy of the sex 

organs. 

 

 

SUBCHAPTER A 

 

FUNCTION OF THE OVARIES 

 

Like the testicles in man, so the ovaries in woman are the essential 

sexual organs. They are the fundamental organs, without which the 

other sexual organs are useless. Also like the testicles in man, the 

ovaries have two distinct functions, manufacturing two distinct 

substances. One function is to manufacture eggs; this, called the 

ooegenetic or egg-producing function, is its _racial_ function; without 

it the race could not perpetuate itself. But the ovary has also an 

_individual_ function. Besides the ova, the ovary manufactures what we 

call an _internal_ secretion which is absorbed by the blood, and which 

is of the greatest importance to the woman herself. While the 

manufacture of ova begins only at puberty, with menstruation, and 

closes at the menopause, the manufacture of the internal secretion 

lasts throughout the woman's entire life. This secretion, which 

consists of various chemical substances, has a tremendous influence 

not only on the development of the woman's body, but also on her 

feelings. 

 

First of all it is necessary for the development of the woman's 

special characteristics, or _secondary sexual characters_. Without 

that internal secretion of the ovaries, a woman would look more or 

less like a man; she would not develop her beautiful rounded form, her 

pretty long hair, her breasts, her broad pelvis, her feminine voice, 

etc. _Second_, the secretion is necessary to the proper development of 

her other sexual organs; if the ovaries are cut out, then the uterus 

and the vagina and even the vulva shrivel up. _Third_, it is that 

internal secretion that excites in woman sexual desire and makes her 

enjoy relations with the male sex. If the ovaries are cut away, 

particularly if it is done early in life, the woman has no sexual 

desire and no enjoyment. _Fourth_, it contributes to the general 

health, wellbeing, energy, and mental alertness of the woman.
