This chapter examines the School of Sexual Prophylaxis inside the Dispensary, where brothel girls study to be good prostitutes. In this school, they are first introduced to the status of women in society and the prostitution trade. If they want to become a good prostitute, the most important thing to understand is hygiene because if they are unclean, they will disastrously spread venereal diseases to their race. As such, they are taught methods for washing the face, hair, and hands, bathing, washing the sexual organs, and douching. They also study about the anatomical description of the male and female sexual organs, pregnancy and childbirth, venereal diseases and their symptoms, and useful methods for treating these diseases.

Keywords:   School of Sexual Prophylaxis, Dispensary, prostitution, sexual hygiene, venereal diseases, sexual anatomy, pregnancy, childbirth
