INDEX OF AUTHORS

there must be more than this, as confusion might be produced in 

so many other ways, as if she were found bathing, or undressed, 

though it might not be so acute. In reality, I fancy she would be 

checked in what she was doing, and that the man, perhaps 

unconsciously, imagined this check and a resulting excitement. 

That such a check does sometimes produce excitement I know from 

experience in traveling. If the bladder is not emptied before 

connection the pleasure is often more intense. Long before I 

understood these things at all I was struck by this quotation: 

'Cette volupte que ressentent les bords de la mer, d'etre 

toujours pleins sans jamais deborder?' What would be the effect 

on a man of a sudden check at the supreme moment of sexual 

pleasure? In reality, I suppose, pain, as the nerves would be at 

their full tension and unable to respond to any further stimulus; 

but, in imagination, one's nerves are _not_ at their highest 

tension, and one imagines an increase or, at any rate, a 

prolongation of the pleasurable sensations. Something of all 

this, some vague _reflection_ of the woman's possible sensations, 

seems to enter in the man's feelings in surprising the woman. In 

any case his pleasure in her confusion seems to me a reflection 

of her feelings, for the sense of shame and embarrassment before 

a man is very exciting, and doubly so if one realizes that the 

man enjoys it. Ouida speaks of the 'delicious shame' experienced 

by 'Folle Farine.' 

 

"It seems to me that whenever we are affected by another's 

emotion we do practically, though unconsciously, put ourselves in 

his place; but we are not always able to gauge accurately its 

intensity or to allow for differences between ourselves and 

another, and, in the case of pain, it is doubly difficult, as we 

can never recall the pain itself, but only the mental effects 

upon us of the pain. We cannot even recall the feeling of heat 

when we are cold, or _vice versa_, with any degree of vividness. 

 

"A woman tells me of a man who frequently asks her if she would 

not like him to whip her. He is greatly disappointed when she 

says she gets no pleasure from it, as it would give him so much 

to do it. He cannot believe she experiences none, because he 

would enjoy being whipped so keenly if he were a girl. In another 

case the man thinks the woman _must_ enjoy suffering, _because_ 

he would get intense pleasure from inflicting it! Why is this, 

unless he would like it if a woman, and confuses in his mind the 

two personalities? All the men I know who are sadistically 

inclined admit that if they were women they would like to be 

harshly treated.
