Sex and Love, Presumably in that Order--veinglory


I recently bought a book published in 1917 called 'Woman: her Sex and Love Life' by William Robinson. And the final chapter, amongst others, gave me a little something to think about. I thought I would share an excerpt.

"It is my sincere belief--and I cherish the belief in spite of the horrible wretched war which seems to be shattering the very foundations of everything we hold dear ... that the time will come when the world will be practically free from pain and suffering. Almost all disease will be conquered, accidents will be rare, the fear of starvation or poverty or unemployment will no longer haunt men and women, and every infant born will be well-born and welcome ...

Yes I believe that the time will come when the world will be practically free from pain and suffering. But there is one exception. I do not believe that we will ever be able to entirely eliminate the tragedies of the heart ...

... it is the duty of everybody who loves mankind to study the various phases of human sexuality and help to spread sane and human ideas on the subject of Sex and Love."


So there you are. Go forth and spread.

(So tell me, what sane idea would you like to see spread in erotic romance writing?)
