influence on the sexual life. Tambroni, of Ferrara, records the case of a 

boy of 11 who first felt voluptuous emotions on seeing in an illustrated 

journal the picture of a man trampling on his daughter; ever afterward he 

was obliged to evoke this image in masturbation or coitus.[132] An 

instructive case has been recorded by Fere. In this case a lady of 

neurotic heredity on one side, and herself liable to hysteria, experienced 

her first sexual crisis at the age of 13, not long after menstruation had 

become established, and when she had just recovered from an attack of 

chorea. Her old nurse, who had remained in the service of the family, had 

a ne'er-do-well son who had disappeared for some years and had just now 

suddenly returned and thrown himself, crying and sobbing, at the knees of 

his mother, who thrust him away. The young girl accidentally witnessed 

this scene. The cries and the sobs provoked in her a sexual excitement she 

had never experienced before. She rushed away in surprise to the next 

room, where, however, she could still hear the sobs, and soon she was 

overcome by a sexual orgasm. She was much troubled at this occurrence, and 

at the attraction which she now experienced for a man she had never seen 

before and whom she had always looked upon as a worthless vagabond. 

Shortly afterward she had an erotic dream concerning a man who sobbed at 

her knees. Later she again saw the nurse's son, but was agreeably 

surprised to find that, though a good-looking youth, he no longer caused 

her any emotion, and he disappeared from her mind, though the erotic 

dreams concerning an unknown sobbing man still occurred rather frequently. 

During the next ten years she suffered from various disorders of more or 

less hysterical character, and, although not disinclined to the idea of 

marriage, she refused all offers, for no man attracted her. At the age of 

23, when staying in the Pyrenees, she made an excursion into Spain, and 

was present at a bull-fight. She was greatly excited by the charges of the 

bull, especially when the charge was suddenly arrested.[133] She felt no 

interest in any of the men who took part in the performance or were 

present; no man was occupying her imagination. But she experienced sexual 

sensations and accompanying general exhilaration, which were highly 

agreeable. After one bull had charged successively several times the 

orgasm took place. She considered the whole performance barbarous, but 

could not resist the desire to be present at subsequent bull-fights, a 

desire several times gratified, always with the same results, which were 

often afterward repeated in dreams. From that time she began to take an 

interest in horse-races, which she now found produced the same effect, 

though not to the same degree, especially when there was a fall. She 

subsequently married, but never experienced sexual satisfaction except 

under these abnormal circumstances or in dreams.[134] 

 

As the foregoing case indicates, horses, and especially running or 

struggling horses, sometimes have the same effect in stimulating the 

sexual emotions, especially on persons predisposed by neurotic heredity, 

as we have found that the spectacle of pain possesses. A medical 

correspondent in New Zealand tells me of a patient of his own, a young 

carpenter of 26, not in good health, who had never masturbated or had 

connection with a woman. He lived in a room overlooking a livery-stable 

yard where was kept, among other animals, a large black horse. Nearly 

every night he had a dream in which he seemed to be pursuing this large 

black horse, and when he caught it, which he invariably did, there was a 

copious emission. A holiday in the country and tonic treatment dispelled 

the dreams and reduced the nocturnal emissions to normal frequency. Fere 

has recorded a case of a boy, of neuropathic heredity, who, when 14 years 

of age, was one day about to practise mutual masturbation with another boy
