"Perhaps, if they were to examine their conscience, sincerely, they would have to acknowledge they have read a sensuous novel, perused an immoral magazine, or looked at improper pictures! Poor souls, can they truly and logically complain that a flood of muck threatens to engulf them when they themselves opened the dikes of a poisonous ocean?.....
"`I am no longer a child,' says a young woman, `and I know life; therefore, I have the desire and the right to know it even better.' But the poor thing does not realize that her language is the language of Eve, face to face with the forbidden fruit; and does she think perhaps that to know love and experience life it is necessary to examine all its abuses and deformities?
"In the same way, a young man says, `I am no longer a child, and at my age sensuous descriptions no longer mean anything.' Is he sure of this? If true, this would be an indication of unconscious perversion resulting from reading already indulged in, like certain legends of Mithridates, King of Pontus, who grew, prepared and experimented with poisonous herbs to which he wished to become immune; hence, the word mithridatism."
