These books comprise a comprehensive manual of sex education, sexual health and midwifery, with some general health and 'wisdom' added, which was in its time one of the few resources for this kind of information. The attribution of authorship to Aristotle is spurious, and the work is often attributed to William Salmon, but it seems likely that it was the work of several anonymous authors.
