and, needless to say, has now become a matter of the utmost 

indifference to me. 

 

"From 19 to 22 I attended a professional school in a large city, 

remote from my home, where I was an utter stranger. During these 

years I devoted myself to my professional studies and to music 

with much diligence. I took an active part in all student life 

and problems save only that of the 'eternal feminine.' 

 

"Frequently I have been out with a crowd of 'the boys' when they 

headed for a brothel, and have been the only one to turn back or 

to remain on the sidewalk as the door closed behind my last 

companion. I say this not in self-praise, but in the same spirit 

of accuracy which has prompted me to put down everything 

concerning this greatest mystery of our natures as I have 

experienced it and worked it out. 

 

"It was during these three years at school that I placed upon 

myself the most stringent and effective curbs to my sex nature. I 

somehow never could 'get my own consent' to go to a brothel or 

stay with a 'soiled dove,' for I had by this time firmly resolved 

that I would bring to my wife, whoever she might turn out to be, 

a clean body at least. I limited myself in my autoexcitement to 

one emission a week and on one or two occasions went two weeks 

without inducing an emission. Spontaneous nocturnal emissions 

were quite common during these years. I cannot state just how 

frequent they were, but perhaps one a week would be a fair 

average. 

 

"Shortly after graduation at the age of 22 I became engaged to 

the woman who is now my wife. (She was 17 at the time of our 

engagement, brunette, well developed, and with a wisdom and charm 

that have held me a willing captive for ten years and no prospect 

of escape!) 

 

"With our engagement began for each of us that divine and 

mysterious unfolding of the nature of one to the nature of the 

other. Our engagement lasted two years and a half and, ignorant 

as we both were, I am sure that it was none too long. Never shall 

I forget the surprise I felt--to say nothing of the delight--when 

I discovered that my sweetheart was as anxious to find out the 

uttermost facts about me as I was to explore the divine mystery 

of her sweet body. 

 

"We lived in different towns and I used to spend Sundays at her 

home. I slept in a room adjoining that occupied by my betrothed 

and a friend. There was a transom with clear glass over the door 

which connected these two rooms, and to have stood upon the foot 

of the bed and looked through this transom would have been the 

easiest thing in the world, and was such an opportunity as I 

would have given years of my life to have obtained in my 

adolescence; but now that the chance was afforded me to freely 

spy upon the chamber of my future bride my soul revolted, for the 

feeling was upon me that not until it was revealed to me because 

she could no longer bear to keep it concealed from me would I 

look upon the blessed vision of her maiden loveliness. Nor was I 

disappointed, for gradually we became acquainted with each 

other's bodies, and this gradual unveiling of each to the other 

led, during the last months of our engagement, to mutual manual 

manipulations, excitement and gratification. Intercourse did not 

take place until the second night after our marriage, and our 

first baby was born nine months and three days after our 

marriage, though my wife was ten days past the cessation of her 

period at the time of my first entering. 

 

"Since marriage I have made it my first duty to study my wife's 

inclinations and desires with regard to our sexual relations, and 

can say that now, after seven years of married life, and after 

she has borne me two sons, we are enjoying a fullness of
