Another one, beginning as far back as the days of the first Pharaoh, and mentioned in the book of Genesis,1 is the filthy, beastly and sinful crime of Onanism. It gets its name from Onan, the son of Judah and Shuah, and consists in drawing the penis out, just before ejaculation, thus "spilling the seed upon the ground." But the thing, we are told, which Onan did "displeased the Lord, wherefore he slew him;" and, like the Oneida method, it is so unsatisfactory and disappointing in its ending as to be both disgusting and hurtful.
