ABSTRACT
The article reports that during the past few years more has been accomplished in the field of sex education in the United States than previously in this century. This can be inferred from the authors' experience in presenting courses in sex education in the high schools of Lansing, Michigan, during the past seven years. The physiology of both sexes is presented and the dual function of gonadal activity is emphasized. Menstruation is considered in some detail, as are the phenomena of nocturnal emission, masturbation, and normal intercourse.
