no bull... another weird Jehovah's Witness article about puberty
I should preface this by saying that the article was written in 1961, with the intention of instructing pubescent females about the workings of their bodies. However, there has never been a retraction of the ugliness in this article that equates the human female reproductive cycle with the bovine female reproductive cycle. What's sadder still, is that there are some JWs who still hold to these archaic and insulting views.

Questions from Readers (Watchtower, 12/15/1961, p. 767)
How can girls guard against temptation in this sex-crazy world?

When a girl reaches the age of puberty or physical maturity, her
body has developed in the matter of sex more than in the mind.
Young folks like to be together, first in groups, later in twos.
If they have not been instructed by their parents in regard to the
matter of sex, a boy and a girl are likely to become too familiar
and to engage in what is popularly called petting or necking. They
may practice this for a time and see no bad results. However, the
time will come when there will be great danger in such actions.
Why? In answer to this question, we can learn about nature and sex
from the bovine family of mammals, both wild and tame.

Large herds of cattle, both male and female, wander over the plains
feeding. Ordinarily the male or bull would not think of approaching
the female or cow for sex purposes. If he did approach he would not
receive a hearty welcome, but, rather, he might be gored by the cow's
horns. There is no petting or sex relations between bull and cow
permitted, because the female is not in physical condition to breed.
The bull seems to understand this and keeps in his own place. However,
when the female of the species is in condition to breed, she makes the
matter known. If there is no male in the herd, she will go elsewhere
looking for one and she is unsettled until she finds one and then is
bred by him. Now she is contented, and the end result is a calf. In
this connection it is interesting to note that the male animal has no
season at which he is not willing to engage in the breeding act.

If we humans would take a lesson from these creatures, we would learn
something of importance in matters of sex, as to its purpose and the
results of its operation.

As with a cow, when a young girl who has reached her puberty is in
physical condition to conceive and become pregnant, her sex emotions
are greatly aroused. If she has association with a boy, she is
inclined to think that it is the sweetness of the "boy friend" that
causes this delightful and new feeling, and so she becomes infatuated
with him. If the boy friend should become sexually aroused and lets
her know it and then she yields her body to the advances of the
amorous boy friend, she is likely to become pregnant as a result of
just one sex experience of this kind.

Some persons foolishly think that they know when it is "safe" to
have sex contact with those of the opposite sex and thus avoid
becoming pregnant, but this is a serious mistake on their part.
Even learned biologists do not know exactly when there is no danger
of conception for a woman. This is due to certain irregularities
in the case of various females.

When the ovum, that is, the egg cell from which the baby starts,
is at large or is on its way from the woman's ovary through her
Fallopian tube to the uterus, there it remains for an uncertain
length of time, which varies greatly with different females. Then
is the time when conception can take place if the ovum is met by a
male life sperm. During that same time the female is sexually
aroused and is ready for the sex act that at this time will cause
a baby to result. This bearing of children is the sole privilege
of the female. In fact, this is one main reason for creating the
female of the human species.

There are cases where a girl became pregnant as a result of one sex
interview with a boy. What a price for a girl, a virgin, to pay for
a few minutes of satisfied sex emotions! When persons start in
this dangerous and sinful course, they find it hard to overcome
future temptations. When a young, unmarried girl falls to the
temptation, the price she pays is terrible: shame, sorrow, a ruined
reputation, endless troubles, with the danger of being
disfellowshiped from a congregation if the girl is a dedicated
member. It is high time for girls to understand the make-up of
their bodies and its functions, especially with regard to sex.
Then if a girl understandingly takes care of herself while the ovum
is at large and is causing sex disturbance and cravings within her,
she will be able to act like a true lady of irreproachable morals
at all times. She will avoid the violating of her virginity and
the shame and conscience-stricken state due to this; and wisely she
will direct her young life so as to end up in the position of a
clean, happy wife and mother of legitimate children, jouneying to
the new world of righteousness, where there will be no sex problems
amid a sex-crazy population.

This is just one of many examples of "Ignorance Only" ™ sex education which among other horror stories has made the recent case of the three kidnapped women in Cleveland worse than it had to be. One of the girls reported feeling like a "used piece of chewing gum" because A-hole Castro raped her and hence she felt her life was over and there was no point in trying to escape. Parents who think that slut-shaming is a valid way of keeping "their" girls "pure" should ponder what these women went through in part because their religious upbringing gave them such a disgustingly distorted view of human sexuality.

Also, are these things not written by native English speakers? Or badly translated?

Talk about repression.

You'd think that the religious would embrace all parts of gwads not-so Great world, sex included...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

This author's native language is American English. This is not a translation. The author is verbally twisting himself in knots with weird euphemisms trying to sound uppity or smarter than he really is. Fifty years ago, when people were freaking out over the sexual revolution, it was an attempt at appearing to be über-proper, which in reality was an epic fail.

But, hey, what do I know? I'm at the mercy of my sex emotions and ova-at-large. Laughat

Lol, yeah. Some of the turns of phrase here are extremely awkward.

"Sex interview?" Is that like when you want a job in a porno and give a demonstration?

I don't understand this part, either:
Quote:If we humans would take a lesson from these creatures, we would learn
something of importance in matters of sex, as to its purpose and the
results of its operation.
Is he saying that, if a teen girl doesn't want sex, she should gore her boyfriend? Then he talks about the cow/bull mating, but they aren't married, so certainly JWs shouldn't be taking cues from them. He seems to be implying that everybody gets pregnant the first time, also.

RE: no bull... another weird Jehovah's Witness article about puberty
I also noted "sex emotion"...wow!

In Catholic school, when they split the boys and girls up...for the talk. Wouldn't want to inform one gender about the other ya know.

The boys were told that if they became aroused they should whack themselves on their member with a pencil till it went away. They were informed to always carry a pencil.

Of course, we were not supposed to reveal the details of the other gender's talk...but we girls just howled when we were finally informed why the boys all got new pencils that day. Anti-sex writing utensils.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

My favorite line:

interview with a boy.


What the hell is a sex interview?
