morals; then I learnt otherwise. I must say I became about this 

time a _sensual pig_. I knew how dangerous these places were on 

account of the police and blackmailers, but that gave the hunt a 

double zest. At this time I led a double life and was always 

watching and analyzing myself. I had to do with heaps of men of 

all classes. I was often offered money, but that I would on no 

condition accept. To pay or to be paid kills every sort of erotic 

feeling in me and always has done so. I once wished to experiment 

with myself. I was offered a small sum of money by a former 

schoolmaster. I accepted this just to see how it would affect me. 

The next moment I threw the money as far away as possible. Then I 

saw I had none of the prostitute nature in me. I was simply 

overwhelmed with sensuality. I considered I was a criminal and 

wished to see in how many ways my nature had the criminal 

instinct. I wanted to see if I could become a thief. I stole a 

silver button in a shop where antiquities were sold, but I went 

to the shop the same day again and returned the button, without 

the people knowing. I found I could not become a thief. Then the 

question came. Why had I felt a criminal since my seventh year? 

Was it my fault? If not, whose fault was it? Not till I studied 

Freud's psychoanalytical system did I get a clear insight into my 

own character. 

 

"When I was 20 years of age I met a gentleman one night in a 

heavy snow-storm. We walked and talked and understood each other. 

He belonged to one of Sweden's first aristocratic families. He 

was extremely refined. He asked me to his rooms. We undressed and 

lay down. He had a very beautiful head and a still more beautiful 

body. I think that all my erotic feelings were numbed by looking 

at his beautiful body. To me anything sensual would have been 

sacrilege, I thought, and I can remember the feeling of awe which 

came over me. He was them 20 years of age, but his hair was quite 

white. First he did not understand, and then he was very gentle 

to me. I kept perfectly chaste for three whole months after the 

sight of his body. We saw each other often. Eight years later we 

met for the last time. He suffered much from melancholia. At that 

time I prevented him from committing suicide. This winter, 

however, he shot himself. 

 

"At the age of 22 my sister introduced me to a charming, 

intelligent and refined, half-English, half-Swedish painter. We 

'recognized' each other at once, though we had never seen each 

other before, and even knew each other's characters to the 

smallest traits. My parents liked him better than any friend I 

had ever had. My sister and he were from the first like sister 

and brother. The first evening in my home he and I kissed each 

other. The women were mad about him. Later I found many men were 

too. I was three weeks his senior. He had his own rooms. I have 

never felt any such wonderful harmony as when our naked bodies 

mingled. It was like floating in ether. With him it was the only 

time I had been active in _fellatio_. We were much together, 

though not much physically, for he had many love affairs with 

women. What I loved was the way he would cut off all advances of 

men, I was his 'little brother' and so he calls me to this day. 

He is now married in America, and the father of a pretty little 

daughter. We are the best of friends to this day. 

 

"The two years in Copenhagen were some of the happiest I have 

spent, though nearly the whole time I was in physical pain. In 

Austria I found, among the Tyrolese peasants, that the 

Englishmen, who come there in winter for sports and in the summer 

for mountain climbing, have demoralized the young male peasants 

with money. Homosexual intercourse is easy to get if you are 

willing to pay the price,--larger in season, less out of season. 

 

"In Italy it is merely a question of money or passion, but 

everything in love there is quite transient. 

 

"In Bavaria I found the love and peace 'which passeth all
