Sex – Avoided Subjects Discussed in Plain English

Sex – Avoided Subjects Discussed in Plain English by Henry Stanton
By: (1805-1887)

Henry Stanton’s 1922 book Sex – Avoided Subjects Discussed in Plain English is intended as a frank (although consevative and moralistic) guide to human sexual behaviour and relationships. It is partly a self-help book, partly an attempt to relay the scientific knowledge of the day in relation to sex and reproduction in a way suitable for popular consumption.

Reviews (Rated: 4 Stars - 3 reviews)

Reviewer: - June 11, 2014
May be dated, but has some pretty good ideas and approaches, even if the facts are sometimes incorrect. Interestingly, the author mentions a theory that seems like an early ruminations on epigenetics.

The previous reviewer is dead on. The medical beliefs of the time would be laughed at today. This was really interesting.
Reviewer: - June 1, 2013
Very funny to read how perceptions on sex and other *taboo* topics have remained the same or changed. Very quick read and good for some laughs. Some ideas should remain to this day.
