Almost any writer on sex would write such a chapter today, but few indeed would have been the hardy souls who would have exposed themselves to storms of lay and professional criticism as did Dr. Worcester by boldly stating in 1899 what even in 1934 has not had universal acceptance: that sex is inherently decent and not indecent, that girls as well as boys should know about sex, and that each sex should know something about the other."
