INDEX OF AUTHORS

distinguish genuine from spurious inverts,[134] enumerates three classes 

of the latter: (1) those who practise homosexuality for purposes of gain, 

more especially male prostitutes and blackmailers; (2) persons who, from 

motives of pity, good nature, friendship, etc., allow themselves to be the 

objects of homosexual desire; (3) normal persons who, when excluded from 

the society of the opposite sex, as in schools, barracks, on board ship, 

or in prison, have sexual relations with persons of their own sex. Now 

Hirschfeld clearly realizes that the mere sexual act is no proof of the 

direction of the sexual impulse; it may be rendered possible by mechanical 

irritation (as by the stimulation of a full bladder) and in women without 

any stimulation at all; such cases can have little psychological 

significance. Moreover, he seems to admit that some subdivisions of his 

first class are true inverts. He further mentions that some 75 per cent. 

of the individuals included in these classes are between 15 and 25 years 

of age, that is to say, that they have scarcely emerged from the period 

when we have reason to believe that, in a large number of individuals at 

all events, the sexual impulse is not yet definitely differentiated; so 

that neither its homosexual nor its heterosexual tendencies can properly 

be regarded as spurious.
