Its property-precepts about 'purity' or sex-fear, and its hostility to free courtship and love-choice, halt boys and girls in an infantile stage of development and doom them to inwardly compulsive careers of celibacy, or prostitution and prostitution-patronage, to marriages made tragic by sexual impotence and frigidity or the compromise-expedient of polite adultery." ; vii, 428 pages.
