Testimony of a French Physician.--A French author of considerable 

note,[19] remarks on the same subject:-- 

 

"Nothing costs the economy so much as the production of semen and its 

forced ejaculation. It has been calculated that an ounce of semen was 

equivalent to forty ounces of blood.... Semen is the essence of the 

whole individual. Hence, Fernel has said, 'Totus homo semen est.' It 

is the balm of life.... That which gives life is intended for its 

preservation." 

 

[Footnote 19: Parise.] 

 

It may be questioned, perhaps, whether physiology will sustain to the 

fullest extent all the statements made in the last quotation; but 

perhaps physiology does not appreciate so fully as does pathology the 

worth of the most vital of all fluids, and the fearful results which 

follow its useless expenditure. 

 

Continence of Trainers.--"The moderns who are training are well aware 

that sexual indulgence wholly unfits them for great feats of strength, 

and the captain of a boat strictly forbids his crew anything of the 

sort just previous to a match. Some trainers have gone so far as to 

assure me that they can discover by a man's style of pulling whether 

he has committed such a breach of discipline over night, and have not 

scrupled to attribute the occasional loss of matches to this 

cause."[20] 

 

[Footnote 20: Acton.] 

 

A Cause of Throat Disease.--The disease known as "_clergyman's sore 

throat_" is believed by many eminent physicians to have its chief origin 

in excessive venery. It is well known that sexual abuse is a very potent 

cause of throat diseases. This view is supported by the following from 

the pen of the learned Dr. X. Bourgeois:-- 

 

"We ought not, then, to be surprised that the physiological act, 

requiring so great an expenditure of vitality, must be injurious in 

the highest degree, when it is reiterated abusively. To engender is 

to give a portion of one's life. Does not he who is prodigal of himself 

precipitate his own ruin? A peculiar character of the diseases which 

have their origin in venereal excesses and masturbation is chronicity." 

 

"Individual predispositions, acquired or hereditary, engender for each 

a series of peculiar ills. In some, the debility bears upon the 

pulmonary organs. Hence results the dry cough, prolonged hoarseness, 

stitch in the side, spitting of blood, and finally phthisis. How many 

examples are there of young debauchees who have been devoured by this 

cruel disease!... It is, of all the grave maladies, the one which 

venereal abuses provoke the most frequently. Portal, Bayle, Louis, say 

this distinctly." 

 

A Cause of Consumption.--This fatal disease finds a large share of its 

victims among those addicted to sexual excesses, either of an illicit 

nature or within the marriage pale, for the physical effects are 

essentially identical. This cause is especially active and fatal with 

sedentary persons, but is sufficiently powerful to undermine the 

constitution under the most favorable circumstances, as the following 

case illustrates:-- 

 

The patient was a young man of twenty-two, large, muscular, and well
