450. V. THAT WITH SOME MEN, LOVE OF THE SEX CANNOT WITHOUT HARMFUL RESULTS BE TOTALLY RESTRAINED FROM GOING FORTH INTO FORNICATION. It were vain to recount the harmful results which excessive repression of love of the sex may cause and effect with those who from superabundance labor with burning heat. With such men, this gives rise to certain diseases of the body and sicknesses of the mind, to say nothing of secret evils which are not to be named. It is otherwise with those whose love of the sex is so scanty that they are able to resist the urgings of its lust; and likewise with those who at the age of early manhood, thus at the first omens, are free to introduce themselves into a legitimate partnership of the bed without any loss of worldly fortune. This is the case with infants in heaven when they have grown to marriageable age; therefore, they do not know what fornication is. The same condition does not obtain on earth where matrimonies cannot be contracted until early manhood has passed. This is the case with many in governments where offices must be earned by long service and means must be acquired to support a house and family, it being only then that a worthy wife can be sought.
