INDEX OF AUTHORS

nates; she cannot imagine being beaten by a small woman. She has 

often in this way been beaten by a friend, who should be naked at 

the time, and must submit afterward to cunnilinctus. (Moll, 

_Kontraere Sexualempfindung_ third edition, p. 568.) 

 

In the preceding case there were no masochistic ideas; it is 

likely that in such a case beating is desired largely on account 

of that purely physical effect to which attention has already 

been called. In the same way self-beating with a switch or whip 

has sometimes been spontaneously discovered as a method of 

self-excitement preliminary to masturbation. I am acquainted with 

a lady of much intellectual ability, sexually normal, who made 

this discovery at the age of 18, and practised it for a time. 

Professor Reverdin, also, speaks of the case of a young girl 

under his care who, after having exhausted all the resources of 

her intelligence, finally discovered that the climax of enjoyment 

was best reached by violently whipping her own buttocks and 

thighs. She had invented for this purpose a whip composed of 

twelve cords each of which terminated in a large chestnut-burr 

provided with its spines. (A. Reverdin, _Revue Medicale de la 

Suisse Romande_, January 20, 1888, p. 17.) 

 

 

FOOTNOTES: 

 

[107] The discipline or scourge was classed with fasting as a method of 

mastering the flesh and of penance. See, e.g., Lea, _History of Auricular 

Confession_, vol. ii, p. 122. For many centuries bishops and priests used 

themselves to apply the discipline to their penitents. At first it was 

applied to the back; later, especially in the case of female penitents, it 

was frequently applied to the nates. Moreover, partial or complete nudity 

came to be frequently demanded, the humiliation thereby caused being 

pleasant in the sight of God.

Sacerdotal Celibacy_, 3d ed., vol. ii, p. 278; Kiernan, "Asceticism as an 

Auto-erotism," _Alienist and Neurologist_, Aug., 1911. 

 

[109] This is the opinion of Loewenfeld, _Ueber die Sexuelle Konstitution_, 

p. 43. 

 

[110] Thus, Duehren (Iwan Bloch) remarks (_Der Marquis de Sade und Seine 

Zeit_, 1901, p. 211): "It is well known that England is today the classic 

land of sexual flagellation." See the same author's _Geschlechtsleben in 

England_, vol. ii, ch. vi. In America it appears also to be common, and 

Kiernan mentions that in advertisements of Chicago "massage shops" there 

often appears the announcement: "Flagellation a Specialty." The reports of 

police inspectors in eighteenth century France show how common 

flagellation then was in Paris. It may be added that various men of 

distinguished intellectual ability of recent times and earlier are 

reported as addicted to passive flagellation; this was the case with 

Helvetius. 

 

[111] A full bibliography of flagellation would include many hundred 

items. The more important works on this subject, in connection with the 

sexual impulse, are enumerated by Eulenburg, in his _Sadismus und 

Masochismus_. An elaborate history of flagellation generally is now being 

written by Georg Collas, _Geschichte des Flagellantismus_, vol. i, 1912.

[113] _Archiv fuer Kriminal-Anthropologie_, 1909, p. 361. He brings forward 

the evidence of a reliable and cultured man who at one time sought to 

obtain the pleasures of passive sexual flagellation. But in spite of his 

expectation and good will the only result was to disperse every trace of 

sexual desire.
