Jerry: In answer to your question: There are absolutely no sexual practices
and instruction suitable for pre-pubescent children. Except perhaps for that
information and investigation that goes on between themselves. No adult, no
matter what the pretense has any business interfering in pre-pubertal
sexuality. It causes nothing but trouble for the children (ask your friend
the Professor of Abnormal Psych) As to pubertal children, of course they
require information , but that's what they have parents for! One can talk to
young people about sex but "demonstration" (as per CWL's practices) are
totally out of order. Today we have certain new problems that didn't exist
in the early part of the century and that is we have to teach young people
about HPB. But none of this requires having sex with them! His behaviour
with very young children means that CWL was not simply a delusional
schizophrenic, but criminally insane as well.
