having no other end but pleasure. Concerning which our best rule is, 

that although in this, as in eating and drinking, there is an appetite 

to be satisfied, which cannot be done without pleasing that desire, 

yet since that desire and satisfaction were intended by nature for other 

ends, they should never be separated from those ends." 

 

"It is a sad truth that many married persons, thinking that the 

flood-gates of liberty are set wide open, without measures or 

restraints (so they sail in the channel), have felt the final rewards 

of intemperance and lust by their unlawful using of lawful permissions. 

Only let each of them be temperate, and both of them modest."[17] 

 

[Footnote 17: Jeremy Taylor.] 

 

Says another writer very emphatically, "It is a common belief that a 

man and woman, because they are legally united in marriage, are 

privileged to the unbridled exercises of amativeness. This is wrong. 

Nature, in the exercise of her laws, recognizes no human enactments, 

and is as prompt to punish any infringement of her laws in those who 

are legally married, as in those out of the bonds. Excessive indulgence 

between the married produces as great and lasting evil effects as in 

the single man or woman, and is nothing more or less than legalized 

prostitution." 

 

 

Results of Excesses.--The sad results of excessive indulgences are seen 

on every hand. Numerous ailments attributed to overwork, 

constitutional disease, or hereditary predisposition, know no other 

cause and need no other explanation. 

 

_Effects upon Husbands_.--No doubt the principal blame in this matter 

properly falls upon the husband; but it cannot be said that he is the 

greatest sufferer; however, his punishment is severe enough to clearly 

indicate the enormity of the transgression, and to warn him to a 

reformation of his habits. The following is a quotation from an eminent 

medical authority:-- 

 

"But any warning against sexual dangers would be very incomplete if 

it did not extend to the excesses so often committed by married persons 

in ignorance of their ill effects. Too frequent emissions of the 

life-giving fluid, and too frequent excitement of the nervous system 

are, as we have seen, in themselves most destructive. The result is 

the same within the marriage bond as without it. The married man who 

thinks that because he is a married man he can commit no excess, however 

often the act of sexual congress is repeated, will suffer as certainly 

and as seriously as the unmarried debauchee who acts on the same 

principle in his indulgences--perhaps more certainly from his very 

ignorance, and from his not taking those precautions and following 

those rules which a career of vice is apt to teach the sensualist. Many 

a man has, until his marriage, lived a most continent life; so has his 

wife. As soon as they are wedded, intercourse is indulged in night after 

night, neither party having any idea that these repeated sexual acts 

are excesses which the system of neither can bear, and which to the 

man, at least, are absolute ruin. The practice is continued till health
