Henry Stanton’s 1922 book Sex – Avoided Subjects Discussed in Plain English is intended as a frank (although conservative and moralistic) guide to human sexual behaviour and relationships. It is partly a self-help book, partly an attempt to relay the scientific knowledge of the day in relation to sex and reproduction in a way suitable for popular consumption.

1922 book means book was written in 1922 pinheads

(5 stars)

I'm just surprised some people can actually read. The book? A charming period piece. I love this stuff! Ignore the bozos... you knew the book's title would bring them out of the woodwork.

Informative and nice read or should I say listen

Some parts are vary crude and old in nature and values... Too old school and rigit at thought... Knowledge provided is nice and good.
