3.0 out of 5 stars Perspective From Historical Interest November 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fair enough tract small tract of 76 pages(dead tree) but it is mostly of historical interest. It is a social essay not a sex manual but it is not self-righteous or overbearing in tone and the author comes out as pleasant in tone if somewhat overidealistic. It often deals with problems that have simply changed their emphasis as time went by. While sex and problems related to it will always be with us, the way we react changes, and I suspect no generation gets it right; she would certainly be as opposed to modern looseness as she was to post-victorian uptightness. The writer was in her time a noted feminist, which is to say a 1920's feminist, not a 2010 feminist. She however was not an ideologue like those who get wrapped up in political causes so often are and in fact is noted for her mercy and forbearance for everyone's point of view. She doesn't have the painful air of shrillness that make all moral questions into a tribal vendetta in the way all factions concerned sometimes treat them today.

What is interesting, is that though some of her concerns are dated in the since of being directed at the troubles of her time rather then ours a surprising number are remarkably similar. And the same arguments that were used then were often rehashed. More gently to be sure, but one can recognize them. Her urging of mercy on those who don't succeed in moral rectitude is noted. In some ways she is to idealistic; her demands for love in marriage are well taken but she fails to take account of how so often in history spouses normally never met each other before the ceremony(though she does touch lightly on the "mail order" solution to population disproportion).

It wasn't a great book. I thought it would be more intriguing and informative than it was but it really wasn't.
