INDEX OF AUTHORS

mother's family, and especially a maternal uncle who had a strong 

feeling for beauty of form, were more akin to him in this 

respect. 

 

His earliest recollections show an attraction for males. At 

children's parties he incurred his father's anger by kissing 

other small boys, and his feelings grew in intensity with years. 

He has never practised self-abuse, and seldom had erotic dreams; 

when they do occur they are about males. 

 

His physical feeling for women is one of absolute indifference. 

He admires beautiful women in the same way as one admires 

beautiful scenery. At the same time he likes to talk with clever 

women, and has formed many friendships with frank, pure, and 

cultivated English girls, for whom he has the utmost admiration 

and respect. Marriage is impossible, because physical pleasure 

with women is impossible; he has tried, but cannot obtain, the 

slightest sexual feeling or excitement. 

 

He especially admires youths (though they must not be immature) 

from 16 or 17 to about 25. The type which physically appeals to 

him most, and to which he appeals, is fair, smooth-skinned, 

gentle, rather girlish and effeminate, with the effeminacy of the 

_ingenue_, not the _cocotte_. His favorite to attract him must be 

submissive and womanly; he likes to be the man and the master. On 

this point he adds: "The great passion of my life is an 

exception, and stands on an utterly different level. It realizes 

an ideal of marriage in which neither is master, but both share a 

joint empire, and in which tyranny would be equally painful to 

both. But this friendship and love is for an equal, a year 

younger than myself, and does not preclude other and less 

creditable _liaisons, physical_ constancy being impossible to men 

of our caliber." 

 

_Pedicatio_ is the satisfaction he prefers, provided he takes the 

active, never the passive, role. He is handsome, with broad 

shoulders, good figure, and somewhat classic type of face, with 

fine blue eyes. He likes boating and skating, though not cricket 

or football, and is usually ready for fun, but has, at the same 

time, a taste for reading. 

 

He has no moral feelings on these matters; he regards them as 

outside ethics, mere matters of temperament and social feeling. 

If England were underpopulated he thinks he might possibly feel 

some slight pangs of remorse; but, as things are, he feels that 

in prostituting males rather than females he is doing a 

meritorious action. 

 

HISTORY XIX.--T.N. His history is given in his own words. 

 

"From the time of my earliest imaginings I have always been 

attached by strength in men and often thought about being carried 

off by big warriors and living with them in caves and elsewhere. 

When about 7 a young man used to show me his penis and handle 

mine occasionally. At private boarding school masturbation was 

fairly frequent and I suppose I was initiated about 12 or 13. 

After leaving I occasionally indulged, but nothing happened until 

I was about 20, except that I was often attracted by strong, 

well-built young men of good character; a man who was not honest 

and good-hearted had no attraction. At 20 I was much attached to 

a young man of my own age. He was engaged. This did not prevent 

him on one occasion endeavoring playfully and with his brother to 

obtain access to my person. I successfully resisted, although if 

_he_ only had been present I should not have done so, but 

welcomed the attempt, and I have often regretted I did not let 

him know this. But I had a dim idea that my penis was somewhat 

undeveloped and this made me shy. Circumstances separated us. 

About two years later I was crossing the Channel when I engaged 

in conversation with a man about eight years older, who was one 

of our travelling party. I think the attraction was a case of 

love at sight, certainly on my side. A few nights later he had so 

arranged that we shared a bedroom, and he very soon came over to 

me and tenderly handled my person. I reciprocated and I look back
