in bed are also injurious for the same reason. 

 

In frequency, emissions will vary in different persons from an 

occasional one at long and irregular intervals to two or three a week, 

or several--as many as four in one case we have met--in a single night. 

 

The immediate effect of an emission will depend somewhat upon the 

frequency of occurrence and the condition of the individual. If very 

infrequent, and occurring in a comparatively robust person, after the 

seminal vesicles have become distended with seminal fluid, the 

immediate effect of an emission may be a sensation of temporary relief. 

This circumstance has led certain persons to suppose that emissions 

are natural and beneficial. This point will receive attention shortly. 

 

If the emissions are more frequent, or if they occur in a person of 

a naturally feeble constitution, the immediate effect is lassitude, 

languor, indisposition and often inability to perform severe mental 

or physical labor, melancholy, amounting often to despair and even 

leading to suicide, and an exaggeration of local irritation, and of 

all the morbid conditions to be noticed under the head of "General 

Effects." Headache, indigestion, weakness of the back and knees, 

disturbed circulation, dimness of vision, and loss of appetite, are 

only a few of these. 

 

Are Occasional Emissions Necessary or Harmless?--That an individual 

may suffer for years an involuntary seminal loss as frequently as once 

a month without apparently suffering very great injury, seems to be 

a settled fact with physicians of extensive experience, and is well 

confirmed by observation; yet there are those who suffer severely from 

losses no more frequent than this. But when seminal losses occur more 

frequently than once a month, they will certainly ultimate in great 

injury, even though immediate ill effects are not noticed, as in 

exceptional cases they may not be. If argument is necessary to sustain 

this position, as it hardly seems to be, we would refer to the fact 

that seminal losses do not occur in those who are, and always have been, 

continent both mentally and physically, when such rare individuals can 

be found. They occur the most rarely in those who the most nearly 

approach the standard of perfect chastity; so that whenever they occur, 

they may be taken as evidence of some form of sexual excess. This fact 

clearly shows that losses of this kind are not natural. 

 

Emission not Necessary to Health.--If it be argued that an occasional 

emission is necessary to relieve the overloaded seminal vesicles, we 

reply, the same argument has been used as an apology for unchastity; 

but it is equally worthless in both instances. It might be as well argued 

that vomiting is a necessary physiological and healthful act, and 

should occur with regularity, because a person may so overload his 

stomach as to make the act necessary as a remedial measure. Vomiting 

is a diseased action, a pathological process, and is occasioned by the 

voluntary transgression of the individual. Hence, it is as unnecessary
