9780002559218: Once a Week Is Ample: Or, the Moderately Sensual Victorians Guide to Restraint of the Passions

Sex, or conjugal or carnal relations, were not something the Victorians openly applauded. Delicate, private, embarassing - it was all too often a subject to be whispered about furtively in shadowy corners. If you had to do it, it had to be done quietly. And women didn't do it at all. It was a subject so senstive, even Debrett was challenged. This text aims to save many a young fellow from the blast and blight of a befouled manhood, wrecked by the wretched blunderings of ignorant youth.

Review:

'I am glad to commend it. The short chapters, full of physiological truths, will be read by young males without awakening a prurient thought.' 'It is written reverently but very plainly and, I believe, will save a multitude of young men from evils unspeakable.' 'An admirable course of instruction for the most intimate of relations.'
