Description

On Prostitution in Algeria
By the doctor A. Bertherand
Chief Doctor of the army

First section—Retrospective view—on prostitution among the natives

The plurality of wives, a dogma of the Koran; social inferiority, because of the ignorance in which religious law condemns the female sex, confined to a narrow rut of habitual idleness or menial studies; the common ease of divorce, the promiscuous mixing of slaves and legitimate wives in the sanctuary of the family, all these sad conditions of domestic life could not fail, under the hot climate and exciting Algerian sky, to upon up a wide relaxation of morals and prostitution.
