HISTORY X.--A.H., aged 62. Belongs to a family which cannot be 

regarded as healthy, but there is no insanity among near 

relations. Father a very virile man of high character and good 

intelligence, but not sound physical health. Mother was 

high-strung and nervous, but possessed of indomitable courage and 

very affectionate; she lived very happily with her husband. She 

became a chronic invalid and died of consumption. A.H. was a 

seven months' child, the third in the family, who were born very 

rapidly, so that there is only three years difference in the ages 

of the first and third children. A.H. believes that one of his 

brothers, who has never married and prefers men to women, is also 

inverted, though not to the same degree as himself, and he also 

suspects that a relation of his mother's may have been an invert. 

Sister, who resembles the father in character, is married, but is 

spoken of as a woman's woman rather than a man's woman. The 

family generally are considered proud and reserved, but of 

superior mental endowment. 

 

In early life A.H. was delicate and his studies were often 

interrupted by illness. Though living under happy conditions he 

was shy and nervous, often depressed. In later life his health 

has been up to the average, and he has usually been able to 

conceal his mental doubts and diffidence. 

 

As a child he played with dolls and made girls his companions 

until an age when he grew conscious that his conduct was unusual 

and became ashamed, while his father seemed troubled about him. 

He regards himself as having been a very childish child. 

 

His conscious sexual life began between the ages of 8 and 10. He 

was playing in the garden when he saw a manservant who had long 

been with the family, standing at the door of a shed with his 

penis exposed and erect. The boy had never seen anything of the 

kind before, but felt great delight in the exhibition and moved 

shyly toward the man, who retreated into the shed. The boy 

followed and was allowed to caress and play with the penis until 

ejaculation took place, the man replying, in reply to the child's 

innocent inquiries, that it "felt good." This experience was 

frequently repeated with the same man, and the boy confided in a 

boy friend, with whom he tried to ascertain by personal 

experience what the "good feeling" was like, but they were too 

young to derive any pleasure from the attempt beyond the joy of 

what was instinctively felt to be "eating forbidden fruit." 

 

From this period his sexual tendencies began to become fixed and 

self-conscious. He has never at any period of life had a moment's 

conscious sexual attraction toward a person of the opposite sex. 

His warmest friendships have, indeed, been with women and much, 

perhaps most, of the happiness he has enjoyed has been furnished 

by those friendships. But passion has only been aroused by 

persons of his own sex, generally by men much younger than 

himself. He feels shy and uncomfortable in the presence of men 

of his own age. But even at his present age, a touch of a man or 

boy may cause the liveliest gratification. 

 

Shortly after the incident in boyhood, already narrated, A.H. 

induced a little boy companion to go to a quiet spot, where, at 

A.H.'s suggestion, each placed the other's penis in his mouth by 

turns. A.H. had never heard of such a proceeding. It was a 

natural instinct. He began to masturbate at an early age. But he 

soon found a companion to share his passion. An older man, 

especially, married and with a family, became his accomplice on 

every possible opportunity, and they would manipulate each other. 

At the age of 21, _fellatio_ began to be practised with this man. 

It became a lifelong practice, and the preferred method of sexual 

gratification. He likes best to have it performed on himself, but 

he has never asked anyone to do for him what he would not himself 

do for the other if desired. There has never been _pedicatio_. 

The penis, it may be added, is of good size, and the testicles 

rather large.
