has been previously indicated. 

 

_Constipation_ in females has the same tendency, though the dangers 

are not quite so great. The irritation is sufficient, however, to lead 

to excitement of the passions. 

 

_Intestinal worms_ often produce the same result in children. 

 

_Local uncleanliness_ is another very frequent cause which is often 

overlooked. The natural local secretions quickly become a source of 

great irritation if not removed by daily washing. Certain anatomical 

peculiarities sometimes exist in the male which greatly aggravate this 

difficulty, and for which circumcision, or an equivalent operation, 

is the remedy. 

 

_Irritation of the bladder_, producing incontinence of urine, is 

another enemy to chastity. It should receive prompt attention and 

treatment. In children, this irritability is indicated by wetting of 

the bed at night. In cases of this kind, allow the child little drink 

in the latter portion of the day. See that the bladder is emptied just 

before he goes to bed. Wake him once or twice during the night, and 

have him urinate. Use all possible means to remove the cause of 

irritation by giving him plenty of out-of-door exercise and a very 

simple, though nutritious, diet. Avoid meat, eggs, and condiments. 

 

Modern Modes of Life.--Aside from all of the causes already enumerated, 

there are many other conditions and circumstances, the result of modern 

habits of living, that tend directly toward the excitement of 

sensuality. Superheated rooms, sedentary employments, the development 

of the mental and nervous organizations at the expense of the muscular, 

the cramming system in schools, too long confinement of school-children 

in a sitting position, the allowance of too great freedom between the 

sexes in the young, the demoralizing influence of most varieties of 

public amusement, balls, church fairs, and other like influences too 

numerous to mention, all tend in the one direction, that of abnormal 

excitation and precocious development of the sexual functions. 

 

It is not an exaggeration to say that for one conforming to modern modes 

of living, eating, sleeping, and drinking, absolute chastity is next 

to an absolute impossibility. This would certainly be true without a 

special interposition of Providence; but Providence never works 

miracles to obviate the results of voluntary sin.
