ABSTRACT
The article discusses the concept of sexuality. The author argues that concepts of relationships between the sexes do vary from one era to another. As to the relations of the sexes, eroticism had been driven out by sexuality. Woman was no longer an ideal, a higher being, a fairy-tale come true, but a means of enjoyment. The author also asserts that animal appetite without erotic imagination or playfulness soon becomes boring and meaningless; but its consequences to the person and to the commonwealth are not diminished by the dullness of gratified desire.
