DETERMINATION OF SEX

Sex is determined after conception has taken place. At an early stage of the embryo certain cells are set apart. These, later, form the sex glands. Modern research claims to have discovered the secret of absolutely determining sex in the human embryo, but even if these claims are valid they have not as yet met with any general application.

EARLY DEVELOPMENT

Some twelve days after conception, the female ovule or egg, which has been impregnated by the male spermatazoön, escapes from the ovary where it was impregnated, and entering a tube (Fallopian) gradually descends by means of it into the cavity of the womb or uterus.

This book gets points for the comic value of its outdated views on sexuality, to the point of misinformation about healthy sexuality. It was much more a Victorian social more protector that an education tool. The book offers some stunningly inaccurate facts about the human body and the nature of...more

Fascinating... except that at times upsetting... It's a book written in 1922 about sex. I imagine it was revolutionary in its time. Much of it is so false, it would make me laugh if it wasn't for the fact that I know people who still think and believe some of the horrible falsehoods.

This book made me laugh. When I began to read it I did not know when it was written and half way through I finally figured out that it was written during the "flapper" times. There is good advice in the beginning about being open with your children about sex and giving them simple truths. Later o...more

This book was nice to get some insight on how people thought back then but it is definitely dated...more

I gave Sex by Henry Stanton four stars. One might think that the title would deserve nothing less but the title has very little to do with the work itself. Published in 1922, the book is based on facts and or suppositions that are either bogus or incomplete. It was, in my opinion, very humorous a...more

Curiously old-fashioned but straight-forward book on sex ed. Did you know female masturbation causes small breasts? Now you do!

Archaic and Horrible

Humorous due to it's dated material, but an interesting look into the mentality concerning sex in the early 20th century. A rather nice reference for anyone interested in the study of the ever changing views on human sexuality.
