CONCLUDING REMARKS

the sulphur they usually fail to muster up the courage. For one clerk 

who succumbs to the houris of the pave, there are five hundred who 

succumb to lack of means, the warnings of the sex hygienists, and their 

own depressing consciences. For one "clubman"--i.e., bagman or suburban 

vestryman--who invades the women's shops, engages the affection of some 

innocent miss, lures her into infamy and then sells her to the Italians, 

there are one thousand who never get any further than asking the price 

of cologne water and discharging a few furtive winks. And for one 

husband of the Nordic race who maintains a blonde chorus girl in 

oriental luxury around the corner, there are ten thousand who are as 

true to their wives, year in and year out, as so many convicts in 

the death-house, and would be no more capable of any such loathsome 

malpractice, even in the face of free opportunity, than they would be of 

cutting off the ears of their young. 

 

I am sorry to blow up so much romance. In particular, I am sorry for the 

suffragettes who specialize in the double standard, for when they get 

into pantaloons at last, and have the new freedom, they will discover 

to their sorrow that they have been pursuing a chimera--that there is 

really no such animal as the male anarchist they have been denouncing 

and envying--that the wholesale fornication of man, at least under 

Christian democracy, has little more actual existence than honest 

advertising or sound cooking. They have followed the porno maniacs in 

embracing a piece of buncombe, and when the day of deliverance comes it 

will turn to ashes in their arms. 

 

Their error, as I say, lies in overestimating the courage and enterprise 

of man. They themselves, barring mere physical valour, a quality in 

which the average man is far exceeded by the average jackal or wolf, 

have more of both. If the consequences, to a man, of the slightest 

descent from virginity were one-tenth as swift and barbarous as the 

consequences to a young girl in like case, it would take a division of 

infantry to dredge up a single male flouter of that lex talionis in 

the whole western world. As things stand today, even with the odds so 

greatly in his favour, the average male hesitates and is thus not lost. 

Turn to the statistics of the vice crusaders if you doubt it. They show 

that the weekly receipts of female recruits upon the wharves of sin 

are always more than the demand; that more young women enter upon the 

vermilion career than can make respectable livings at it; that the
