Summary:
"Reproduction is nature's paramount work; because to all else what foundation is to house-its sine qua non. It has its science, or natural laws, prescribed modus operandi, and instrumentalities. Gender is its master workman, and Nature's "male and female" arrangement, with its governing laws, her chosen "ways and means" of originating all life: which growth completes. Sexuality, its laws, facts, conditions, right action, improvement, etc., thus becomes the master problem, as yet unsolved, of every individual of the whole family of man; because on it depend the number, and the primal attributes, of all human beings, throughout all time and eternity; and of all other terrestrial productions. To originate life, and predetermine character, and thereby govern whatever appertains to man and Nature, is its infinitely exalted mission. This renders it the great motor wheel of all mundane productions, throughout all their functions. "Males and females," with all their specialties and interrelations, it creates, and employs in executing all these mighty results. Love, their mutual attraction, that highest and holiest, most sacred and fervent human emotion, religion scarcely excepted, is its all potential means, and just as antecedent and prerequisite to it as morning to noon. These all-glorious truths it has taught him, he here teaches readers. Find their echoes away down throughout all the interior recesses of human nature. Its subject-matter subdivides itself naturally into nine Parts, as follows: Gender, or sexuality; Love; Conjugal and parental adaptations; Courtship; Married life; Maternity; Rearing and governing children; and finally, Sexual ailments and restorations"--Preface.
