faculties (I had begun to experience physical languor and 

depression), and certain religious scruples, the result of my 

early training, took hold of me. For the first time I became 

conscious that the ardors I felt toward my own sex were a 

diversion of the sex-instinct itself, and to my astonishment and 

consternation I found by chance the practices I had already 

indulged in definitely denounced in the Bible as an abomination. 

From that moment began a struggle which lasted for years. I made 

a final breach with my former intimate, and thereupon a long 

dispute took place between the conflicting influences that strove 

for possession of my body. For a time I broke off the habit of 

masturbation, but I could not so easily rid myself of the mental 

indulgence, which was now almost an essential sedative for 

inducing sleep. At this time a visit to the seaside, where, for 

the first time, I was able to see men bathing in complete nudity, 

frankly, in the full light of day, plunged me again for a time 

headforemost into imaginative amours, and my scruples and 

resolutions were flung to the winds. But, on the whole, I had now 

entered a stage which, for want of a better term, I must describe 

as the emotionally moral. To whatever depth of indulgence I 

descended I carried a sense of obliquity with me; I believed that 

I was a rebel from a law, natural and divine, of which yet no 

instinct had been implanted in me. I still held unquestioned the 

truth of the religion I had been brought up in, and my whole 

life, every thought of my brain, every impulse of my body, were 

in direct antagonism to the will of God. At times physical desire 

broke down these barriers, but I practised considerable restraint 

physically, though not mentally, and made great efforts to 

conquer my aversion from women and extreme devotion for men, 

without the slightest success. I was 30, however, before I found 

a companion to love me in the way my nature required. I am quite 

a healthy person, and capable of working at very high pressure. 

Under sexual freedom I have become stronger."
