INDEX OF AUTHORS

Absolute impotence--indeed, repugnance for association with his 

wife--was the lamentable sequence. A divorce was in contemplation 

when, fortunately for all parties concerned, the wife suddenly 

died. Being a man of more than ordinary intelligence, this 

individual, prior to seeking my aid, had sought vainly for some 

remedy for his unfortunate condition. He stated that he believed 

there was an element of heredity in his case, his father having 

been a dipsomaniac and one brother having died insane. He 

nevertheless stated it to be his opinion that, notwithstanding 

the hereditary taint, he would have been perfectly normal from a 

sexual standpoint had it not been for acquired impressions at or 

about the period of puberty. This man presented a typically 

neurotic type of _physique_, complained of being intensely 

nervous, was prematurely gray, of only fair stature, and had an 

uncontrollable nystagmus, which, he said, had existed for some 

fifteen years. As might be expected, treatment in this case was 

of no avail. I began the use of hypnotic suggestion at the hands 

of an expert professional hypnotist. The patient, being called 

out of the State, finally gave up treatment, and I have no means 

of knowing what his present condition is. 

 

 

CASE II.--A lady patient of mine who happened to be an actress, 

and consequently a woman of the world, brought to me for an 

opinion some correspondence which had passed between her younger 

brother and a man living in another State, with whom he was on 

quite intimate terms. In one of these letters various flying 

trips to Chicago for the purpose of meeting the lad, who, by the 

way, was only 17 years of age, were alluded to. It transpired 

also, as evidenced by the letters, that on several occasions the 

young lad had been taken on trips in Pullman cars by his friend, 

who was a prominent railroad official. The character of the 

correspondence was such as the average healthy man would address 

to a woman with whom he was enamored. It seemed that the author 

of the correspondence had applied to his boy affinity the name 

Cinderella, and the protestations of passionate affection that 

were made toward Cinderella certainly would have satisfied the 

most exacting woman. The young lad subsequently made a confession 

to me, and I put myself in correspondence with his male friend, 

with the result that he called upon me and I obtained a full 

history of the case. The method of indulgence in this case was 

the usual one of oral masturbation, in which the lad was the 

passive party. I was unable to obtain any definite data regarding 

the family history of the elder individual in this case, but 

understand that there was a taint of insanity in his family. He 

himself was a robust, fine-looking man, above middle age, who was 

well educated and very intelligent, as he necessarily must have 

been, because of the prominent position he held with an important 

railway company. I will state, as a matter of interest, that the 

lad in this case, who is now 23 years of age, has recently 

consulted me for _impotentia coeundi_, manifesting a frigidity 

for women, and, from the young man's statements, I am convinced 

that he is well on the road to confirmed sexual perversion. 

 

An interesting point in this connection is that the young man's 

sister, the actress already alluded to, has recently had an 

attack of acute mania. 

 

I have had other unpublished cases that might be of interest, but 

these two are somewhat classical, and typify to a greater or less 

degree the majority of other cases. I will, however, mention one 

other case, occurring in a woman. 

 

 

CASE III.--A married woman 40 years of age. Has been deserted by 

her husband because of her perverted sexuality. Neurotic history 

on both sides of the family, and several cases of insanity on 

mother's side. In this case affinity for the same sex and 

perverted desire for the opposite sex existed, a combination by 

no means infrequent. Hypnotic suggestion tried, but without 

success. Cause was evidently suggestion and example on the part
