This is another of the volumes developed recently as a guide to the newly married in the technic of sex performances. The author has attempted to treat the subject with delicacy, but in his desire to make beautiful a matter that is essentially anatomic and physiologic he waxes lyrical. He gives accurate descriptions of the sex organs and pictures the love drama as a performance in which the male is primarily responsible for successful consummation. He discusses as usual the various postures and regions of excitation. The concluding chapters deal with the first night and various esthetic relationships. The book seems to be as good as any of those that have recently been made available for the purpose and not a great deal better.
