Riassunto: Dr. Bernhard Stern spent 5 years in the Orient gathering data for this book. Conferring with famous oriental physicians, priests and students of folk-lore in the Turkish capital, and then on numerous distant journeys into the interior of the European and Asiatic Orient, all reports bearing on the contents of this book which were in any manner obtainable.
There are chapters on “Love Potions”, Eunuchs, Marriage in Islam, The Wives of the Prophet Mohammed, Divorce and Widows, Adultery, The Power of Women in the Sultan’s Harem and The Sex Act and many more.
"All great literature touches nakedly and sanely on the central facts of life . . . We must always protest against the absurd confusion whereby nakedness of speech is regarded as equivalent to immorality. . .
"If the conquest of sexual desire were the first and last consideration of life, it would be more reasonable to prohibit clothing than to prohibit nakedness . . The spiritual value of nakedness . . . is a part of natural hygiene in the widest sense, a high and special aspect of the purifying ennobling function of beauty. . . .
"It is the ADULT who needs education in this matter - and in so many matters of sexual enlightenment - more than the child. . . .
"If there were a due regard of familiarity with the natural organs and functions of the opposite sex, ninety per cent of the indecent acts of youths with girl children would disappear. . . . The prurience and prudery which have poisoned sexual life in the past are alike rendered impossible."
Dr. Havelock Ellis
