Love Made Me Lewd

“A vast majority of such poor girls [who are promised love and marriage by beaus who want only sex] make their way to houses of ill-fame and give themselves over to a life of prostitution. Hardly one of these women, if married by the man who brought her to this condition, would have failed to make a true and loving wife and mother…”

Conveniently, we can now blame our exes for all of our sexual mistakes! Hooray!

“Nature has devised a retribution for illicit intercourse in the form of venereal disease. If the parties observe fidelity to their marriage vows, venereal disease is experienced in wedlock only on very rare occasions, and then through some accidental infection, as from contact with some public utensil, as a public water closet, a public towel or a drinking cup…

So prevalent are these venereal diseases among lewd women, whether prostitutes or clandestines, that specialists in the field say: ‘All lewd women are diseased part of the time, and some lewd women are diseased all of the time.’

– Dr. Hall’s Sexual Knowledge


That’s right: Nature came up with venereal diseases because you’re a filthy slattern.

Now, where my crafters at? I think someone needs to stitch that last quote onto a sampler.
