I have received many letters from strangers asking me to
explain in simple and clear words what I think of the subject of
the story which I wrote under the title of the *Kreutzer Sonata*.
I shall try to do so, that is, in a few words to express, so far as
is possible, the essence of what I had intended to convey by my
story, and of the conclusions at which one may arrive from it. I wanted to say, *in the first place*, that in our society
there has formed itself a firm conviction, common to all classes
and supported by the false science, that sexual intercourse is
necessary for health.

I wanted to say, *in the first place*, that in our society
there has formed itself a firm conviction, common to all classes
and supported by the false science, that sexual intercourse is
necessary for health, and that, since marriage is not always
possible, sexual intercourse outside of matrimony, which does not
put men under any other obligations than that of monetary payment,
is quite natural and worthy of emulation.

this conviction has
become so general and deep-rooted that parents, by the advice of
doctors, arrange debauchery for their children; governments, whose
only meaning consists in the care for the moral well-being of its
citizens, establish debauchery, that is, regulate a whole class of
women, who are to perish bodily and morally, in order to satisfy
the imaginary needs of men, while unmarried men abandon themselves
to this debauchery with the calmest conscience.

And so I wanted to say that this is not good, because it is
not right that for the sake of the health of one class of people it
should be necessary to ruin the bodies and souls of another class,
just as it is not right that for the sake of health of one class of
people it should be necessary to drink the blood of others.
The natural conclusion from this, it seems to me, is that it
is not good to submit to this delusion and deception.

And, in
order not to submit, it is necessary, in the first place, not to
believe in this immoral doctrine, no matter by what imaginary
science it may be supported, and in the second, to understand that
such sexual intercourse, where people free themselves from its
possible consequences, from children, or shift the whole burden of
these consequences to the woman, or prevent the possibility of
childbirth, -- that such sexual intercourse is a transgression of
the simplest requirement of morality, that it is base, and that,
therefore, unmarried men, who do not wish to live basely, must not
do it.
