Here is another book of advice to the lovelorn in modern dress. Its author has put under his name on the title page sixteen lines of description of himself which indicate that he ought to know what he is talking about. The book follows standard lines in its descriptions of the tissues involved in sex and their functions. It attempts to explain psychosexual development but must perforce get into the terminology of freudian concepts. In his suggestions as to sexual initiation following marriage the author becomes lyrical without abusing the facts. There are chapters on marriage adjustment and pregnancy which follow standard lines and a final chapter on planned parenthood which tells most of what is now known on birth control.
