HISTORY XXVIII.--English, aged 40, surgeon. Sexual experiences 

began early, about the age of 10, when a companion induced him to 

play at intercourse with their sisters. He experienced no 

pleasure. A little later a servant-girl began to treat him 

affectionately and at last called him into her bedroom when she 

was partially undressed, fondled and kissed his member, and 

taught him to masturbate her. On subsequent occasions she 

attempted a simulation of intercourse, which gave her 

satisfaction, but failed to induce emission in him. On returning 

to school mutual masturbation was practised with schoolfellows, 

and the first emission took place at the age of 14. 

 

On leaving school he became a slave to the charms of women, and 

had frequent coitus about the age of 17, but he preferred 

masturbating girls and especially in persuading girls of good 

position, to whom the experience was entirely novel, to allow him 

to take liberties with them. At 25 he became engaged, and mutual 

masturbation was practised to excess during the engagement; after 

marriage connection generally took place twice every twenty-four 

hours until pregnancy. 

 

"At this time," he writes, "I stayed at the house of an old 

school-fellow, due of my lovers of old days. There were so many 

guests that I shared my friend's bedroom. The sight of his body 

gave rise to lustful feelings, and when the light was out I stole 

across to his bed. He made no objection, and we passed the night 

in mutual masturbation. We passed the next fortnight together, 

and I never took the same pleasure in coitus with my wife, though 

I did my duty. She died five years later, and I devoted myself 

heart and soul to my friend until his death by accident last 

year. Since then I have lost all interest in life." 

 

I am indebted for this case to a well-known English alienist, who 

remarks that the patient is fairly healthy to look at, but with 

neurasthenia and tendency to melancholia, and neurotic 

temperament. The body is masculine and pubic hair abundant. One 

testicle shows wasting. 

 

 

HISTORIES XXIX AND XXX.--I give the following narrative in the 

words of an intimate friend of one of the cases in question: "My 

attention was first drawn to the study of inversion--though I 

then regarded all forms of it as depraving and abominable--at a 

public school, where in our dormitory a boy of 15 initiated his 

select friends into the secrets of mutual masturbation, which he 

had learned from his brother, a midshipman. I gave no heed to 

this at the time, though I remembered it in after-years when 

immersed in Plato, Lucretius, and the Epicurean writers. But my 

attention was riveted to it at the age of 20, when I spent a 

holiday with A., a companion with whom I was, and still am, on 

terms of great friendship. We enjoyed many things in common, 

studied together and discussed most unconventional matters, but 

not this. Previously we had always occupied separate sleeping 

apartments; on this occasion we were abroad in a country place, 

and were compelled to put up with what we could get. We not only 

had to share a room, but a bed. I was not surprised at his 

throwing his arm over me, as I knew he was extraordinarily 

attached to me, and I had always felt a brute for not returning 

his affection so warmly. But I was surprised when later I awoke 

to find him occupied in _fellatio_ and endeavoring to obtain my 

response. Had it been anyone else I should have resented strongly 

such a liberty, and our acquaintance would have ended, but I 

cared for him too well, though never very demonstrative. This 

episode led to discussion of the topic. He told me that his 

sexual strength was great, that he had tested it in many ways, 

and that it was essential to his well-being that he should have 

satisfaction in some way. He loathed prostitution and considered 

it degrading; he felt physically attracted to some women and 

intellectually to others, but the two elements were never 

combined, and though he had been intimate with a few he felt that
