activity of the generative organs, and so great an increase in the supply 

of the reproductive elements, that conception in the healthy human female 

may be said to be possible almost at any time during the reproductive 

period." 

 

"People of sense and reflection are most apt to have violent and constant 

passions," wrote Mary Wollstonecraft, "and to be preyed on by them."[229] 

It is that fact which leads to the greater importance of sexual phenomena 

among the civilized as compared to savages. The conditions of civilization 

increase the sexual instinct, which consequently tends to be more 

intimately connected with moral feelings. Morality is bound up with the 

development of the sexual instinct. The more casual and periodic character 

of the impulse in animals, since it involves greater sexual indifference, 

tends to favor a loose tie between the sexes, and hence is not favorable 

to the development of morals as we understand morals. In man the 

ever-present impulse of sex, idealizing each sex to the other sex, draws 

men and women together and holds them together. Foolish and ignorant 

persons may deplore the full development which the sexual instinct has 

reached in civilized man; to a finer insight that development is seen to 

be indissolubly linked with all that is most poignant and most difficult, 

indeed, but also all that is best, in human life as we know it.

1902), "are continually exercised in a severe struggle for existence, do 

not under domestication compete so closely with one another for the less 

needed nutriment. Hence, organs like the reproductive glands, which are 

not so directly implicated in self-preservation, are able to avail 

themselves of more food."
