result of custom and education." 

 

[60] Goncourt, _Histoire de la Societe Francaise pendant le Directoire_, 

p. 422. Clothes became so gauze-like, and receded to such an extent from 

the limbs, that for a time the chemise was discarded as an awkward and 

antiquated garment.

[62] In the rural districts of Hanover, Pastor Grashoff states, "even when 

natural necessities are performed with the greatest possible freedom, 

there is no offence to modesty, in rural opinion." But he makes a 

statement which is both contradictory and false, when he adds that 

"modesty is, to the country man in general, a foreign idea." 

(_Geschlechtlich-Sittliche Verhaeltnisse im Deutsche Reiche_, vol. ii, p. 

45.) 

 

[63] It is frequently stated that prostitutes are devoid of modesty, but 

this is incorrect; they possess a partial and diminished modesty which, 

for a considerable period still remains genuine (see e.g., Reuss, _La 

Prostitution_, p. 58). Lombroso and Ferrero (_La Donna_, p. 540) refer to 

the objection of prostitutes to be examined during the monthly periods as 

often greater than that of respectable women. Again, Callari states 

("Prostituzione in Sicilia," _Archivio di Psichiatria_, 1903, p. 205), 

that Sicilian prostitutes can only with difficulty be persuaded to expose 

themselves naked in the practice of their profession. Aretino long since 

remarked (in _La Pippa_) that no women so detest gratuitous _decolletage_ 

as prostitutes. When prostitutes do not possess modesty, they frequently 

simulate it, and Ferriani remarks (in his _Delinquenti Minorenni_) that of 

ninety-seven minors (mostly females) accused of offences against public 

decency, seventy-five simulated a modesty which, in his opinion, they were 

entirely without.
