Oh early America, the land of opportunity. The home of thoughts free from religious persecution.
The birthplace of the idea that a baby born out of wedlock would be covered in hair. Wait, what?
Check out the story below!
You have to give Mr. William Salmon credit. People are much more likely to take sex advice from Greek philosopher Aristotle than a man named Salmon.
While the manual does suggest that women enjoy sex (scandalous!), it was best for women to wait for marriage because virginity was "the boast and pride of the fair sex".
Not quite as progressive would be Mr. Salmon's take on sex outside that between a man and a woman claiming that it was responsible for "world with confusion and debauchery, has brought diseases on the body, consumptions on estates, and eternal ruin to the soul, if not repented of."
Here I was just wondering where my estate caught consumption. Thanks William Salmon!
