has surprised his friends by his ardent attachment to a lady of 

about his own age to whom he has become engaged. He declares that 

he loves this woman better than any man, but nevertheless he 

still feels strong passion for his men friends. It is evident 

that the homosexual tendency in A. is distinctly more pronounced 

than in his friend X. As is found more often in bisexual than in 

homosexual persons, he is of predominantly masculine type, 

possesses great vitality, and desires to exert all his faculties. 

He has a sound nervous system and is very free from all 

"nervousness." He has written a scientific treatise and can study 

undisturbed amid violent noises. His voice is manly (in singing 

deep base). He can whistle. He is not vain, though well formed, 

and his hands are delicate. His favorite color is green. The 

demonstrative warmth of his affection for his friends is the 

chief feminine trait noted in him. He rarely dreams and has never 

had an erotic dream; this he explains by saying (earlier than 

Freud) that all dreams not caused by physical conditions are 

wish-dreams, and as he always satisfies his sexual needs at once, 

with a friend or by masturbation, his sexual needs have no 

opportunity of affecting his subconscious life. 

 

There may be some doubt as to the classification of the two foregoing 

cases: they are not personally known to me. The following case, with which 

I have been acquainted for many years, I regard as clearly a genuine 

example of bisexuality:-- 

 

 

HISTORY XXXI.--Englishman, independent means, aged 52, married. 

His ancestry is of a complicated character. Some of his mother's 

forefathers in the last and earlier centuries are supposed to 

have been inverted. He remembers liking the caresses of his 

father's footmen when he was quite a little boy. He dreams 

indifferently about men and women, and has strong sexual feeling 

for women. Can copulate, but does not insist on this act; there 

is a tendency to refined, voluptuous pleasure. He has been 

married for many years, and there are several children by the 

marriage. 

 

He is not particular about the class or age of the men he loves. 

He feels with regard to older men as a women does, and likes to 

be caressed by them. He is immensely vain of his physical beauty; 

he shuns _pedicatio_ and does not much care for the sexual act, 

but likes long hours of voluptuous communion during which his 

lover admires him. He feels the beauty of boyhood. At the same 

time he is much attracted by young girls. 

 

He is decidedly feminine in his dress, manner of walking, love of 

scents, ornaments, and fine things. His body is excessively 

smooth and white, the hips and buttocks rounded. Genital organs 

normal. His temperament is feminine, especially in vanity, 

irritability, and petty preoccupations. He is much preoccupied 

with his personal appearance and fond of admiration; on one 

occasion he was photographed naked as Bacchus. He is physically 

and morally courageous. He has a genius for poetry and 

speculation, with a tendency to mysticism. 

 

He feels the discord between his love for men and society, also 

between it and his love for his wife. He regards it as, in part, 

at least, hereditary and inborn in him. 

 

HISTORY XXXII.--C.R., physician; age 38. Nationality, Irish, with 

a Portuguese strain. "My mother came of an old Quaker family. I 

was quite unaware of sexual differences until I was about 14, as 

I was carefully kept separate from my sisters and, although from 

time to time strange longings which I did not understand 

possessed me, I was a virgin in thought and deed until that 

period of life. 

 

"When I was 14 a cousin some years older than myself came to stay 

with us and shared my bed. To my surprise he took hold of my 

penis and rubbed it for a time, when a most pleasant feeling 

seized me and increased until a discharge came out of my organ; 

he then asked me to do the same to him. We frequently repeated 

the process during the following month; I was quite unaware of
