that the practice of masturbation has been abandoned." 

HISTORY XII.--Aged 24. Father and mother both living; the latter 

is of a better social standing than the father. He is much 

attached to his mother, and she gives him some sympathy. He has a 

brother who is normally attracted to women. He himself has never 

been attracted to women, and takes no interest in them nor in 

their society. 

 

At the age of 4 he first became conscious of an attraction for 

older males. From the ages of 11 and 19, at a large 

grammar-school, he had relationships with about one hundred boys. 

Needless to add, he considers homosexuality extremely common in 

schools. It was, however, the Oscar Wilde case which first opened 

his eyes to the wide prevalence of homosexuality, and he 

considers that the publicity of that case has done much, if not 

to increase homosexuality, at all events to make it more 

conspicuous and outspoken. 

 

He is now attracted to youths about 5 or 6 years younger than 

himself; they must be good-looking. He has never perverted a boy 

not already inclined to homosexuality. In his relationship he 

does not feel exclusively like a male or a female: sometimes one, 

sometimes the other. He is often liked, he says, because of his 

masculine character. 

 

He is fully developed and healthy, well over middle height, 

inclined to be plump, with full face and small moustache. He 

smokes many cigarettes and cannot get on without them. Though his 

manners are very slightly if at all feminine, he acknowledges 

many feminine ways. He is fond of jewelry, until lately always 

wore a bangle, and likes women's rings; he is very particular 

about fine ties, and uses very delicate women's handkerchiefs. He 

has always had a taste for music, and sings. He has a special 

predilection for green; it is the predominant color in the 

decoration of his room, and everything green appeals to him. He 

finds that the love of green (and also of violet and purple) is 

very widespread among his inverted friends.
