The Right Attitude, Exhibit A

… from an Anglican clergyman to Stopes after he had read Married Love: “Once or twice a year, possibly four times, I find heaven in her unspeakable sweet joy.” He wrote of his wife, “can it be oftener? Can it be fairly regular? I am afraid too often I bore her and that ends by boring me inexplicably. Single lust is a feasible squibb. I want fireworks!”
