Before there was Faces of Meth… there was, uh, Faces of Masturbation.  ”The above is an illustration of D.S. Burton of Harris, Pa., before the habits of secret vice had begun to tell on him.  The illustration on the following page shows the same young man three years later, taken when he had become an inveterate victim of the vice.  The doctor’s opinion was:  ’If this young man escapes the asylum he and his parents will be fortunate.’  The instructions in this volume will save many a young man from swelling the list of the unfortunates that are in the asylums all over the country.”

Swelling the list, huh?
