  SOME recent writings assume that the ignorant young couples are a thing of the remote, Victorian past that nowadays all honeymooners are thoroughly familiar with the best sex-manuals and know enough from talk with friends and personal experimentation to take all the anxiety and hazards out of the situation.   Perhaps- but extensive discussions with contemporary practitioners, family doctors and gynecologists indicate that this is still an area of enormous ignorance.   lack >   Joking and talking may be freer and easier, but the important factual information is still lack ing for far too many newly-married men and women.     Various factors in the setting can still be of great advantage in making the first intercourse a good rather than a bad memory for one or both.   Privacy must be highly assured both in time and place.   That is, locking the room or stateroom door gives privacy of location, but it is equally important to be sure there is time enough for an utterly unhurried fulfillment.
