suffering from the first results of his sin, neglects to adopt any 

measures for the cure of the disease. Not understanding its inveterate 

character, he labors under the delusion that it will cure itself in 

time. This is a fatal mistake. The diseased conditions induced by this 

vice never improve themselves. Their constant tendency is to increase 

in virulence and inveteracy. The necessity of taking prompt measures 

for relief is too apparent to need especial emphasis. 

 

 

TREATMENT OF SELF-ABUSE AND ITS EFFECTS. 

 

After having duly considered the causes and effects of this terrible 

evil, the question next in order for consideration is, How shall it 

be cured? When a person has, through ignorance or weakness, brought 

upon himself the terrible effects described, how shall he find relief 

from his ills, if restoration is possible? To the answer of these 

inquiries, most of the remaining pages of this work will be devoted. 

But before entering upon a description of methods of _cure_, a brief 

consideration of the subject of _prevention_ of the habit will be in 

order. 

 

 

PREVENTION OF SECRET VICE. 

 

For the rising generation, those yet innocent of the evil practices 

so abundant in this age of sensuality, how the evil habit may be 

prevented is the most important of all questions connected with this 

subject. This topic should be especially interesting to parents, for 

even those who are themselves sensual have seen enough of the evils 

of such a life to wish that their children may remain pure. There are, 

indeed, rare exceptions to this rule, for we sometimes learn of parents 

who have deliberately led their own children into vice, as though they 

desired to make them share their shame and damnation. 

 

Cultivate Chastity.--From earliest infancy all of those influences and 

agencies which cultivate chastity should be brought into active 

exercise. These we need not repeat here, having previously dwelt upon 

them so fully. The reader is recommended to re-peruse the portion of 

the work devoted to this subject, in connection with the present section. 

If parents have themselves indulged in this vice, they should use 

special care that all of the generative and gestative influences 

brought to bear upon their children are the purest possible, so that 

they may not inherit a predisposition to sin in this direction. 

 

Special care should be exercised to avoid corrupt servants and 

associates. Every servant not known to be pure should be suspected until 

proof of innocence has been established. They should be especially 

instructed of the evil arising from manipulation of the genitals even 

in infants, as they may do immense harm through simple ignorance. 

 

Timely Warning.--But, in spite of chaste surroundings and all other 

favorable circumstances, if the child is left in ignorance of his danger, 

he may yet fall a victim to the devices of servants or corrupt playmates, 

or may himself make a fatal discovery. Hence arises the duty of warning 

children of the evil before the habit has been formed. This is a duty
