Document Summary

Even in today"s advanced culture, people still blush when they talk about sex. People are embarrassed by their own sexuality. People are interested in sex because it is necessary, but there are cultural constraints (e. g. religious books) Kellogg was a prude; he thought sex was morally disgusting. He believed people shouldn"t want sex, enjoy it, or do anything sexually that cannot lead to reproduction. He had a clinic where he would treat people for their sexual interests in horrible ways. He put acid on women"s clitorises and believed in painful circumcision to discourage people from having sex. If you really hurt men"s penises, they won"t want to masturbate anymore. To prevent masturbation, silver sutures were applied to prevent erection. He prescribed people a plain and healthy diet with two meals a day to prevent any desire to have sex, hence kellogg"s corn flakes. He believed that sex and the attitude toward it was at the root of the problem.
