Second counselor J. Reuben Clark warns the women of the Relief Society general conference against "self-pollution," prostitution, and "homosexuality, which, it is tragic to say, is found among both sexes." He cautions LDS women against allowing homosexually oriented males to use them as male-substitutes in dating or marriage: "I wonder if you girls have ever reflected on the thought that was in the mind of the man who first began to praise you for your boyish figures." Clark also tells the ladies, "I forebear to more than mention that abomination of filth and loathsomeness of the ancients-carnal knowledge with beasts." The Relief Society magazine publishes this talk in full.
