Sexual Freedom and Venereal Disease
Morton
1971

This old fashioned discussion of sexual hygiene practices reads more academic than other commentary. Old fashioned views on women (and their relative “cleanliness”) are driving most the discussion, but in general the whole sex before marriage discussion is relatively mild and less judgmental than other publications of the time.

Of course the data are irrelvent to today’s researcher or student. Other library collections might consider this a collectible item, but public libraries can safely send this one off to an archive.
