INDEX OF AUTHORS

of accident or curiosity. It is noteworthy that the sexual feelings first 

developed in adult life were usually as strong as those arising at 

puberty. It may be added that, of these 12 women, 9 had at some time or 

another masturbated (4 shortly after puberty, 5 in adult life), but, 

except in 1 case, rarely and at intervals. All belong to the middle class, 

2 or 3 leading easy, though not idle, lives, while all the others are 

engaged in professional or other avocations often involving severe labor. 

They differ widely in character and mental ability; but, while 2 or 3 

might be regarded as slightly abnormal, they are all fairly healthy. 

I am inclined to believe that the experiences of the foregoing group are 

fairly typical of the social class to which they belong. I may, however, 

bring forward another series of 35 women, varying in age from 18 to 40 

(with 2 exceptions all over 25), and in every respect comparable with the 

smaller group, but concerning whom my knowledge, though reliable, is 

usually less precise and detailed. In this group 5 state that they have 

never experienced sexual emotion, these being all unmarried and leading 

strictly chaste lives; in 18 cases the sexual impulse may be described as 

strong, or is so considered by the subject herself; in 9 cases it is only 

moderate; in 3 it is very slight when evoked, and with difficulty evoked, 

in 1 of these only appearing two years after marriage, in another the 

exhaustion and worry of household cares being assigned for its comparative 

absence. It is noteworthy that all the more highly intelligent, energetic 

women in the series appear in the group of those with strong sexual 

emotions, and also that severe mental and physical labor, even when 

cultivated for this purpose, has usually had little or no influence in 

relieving sexual emotion.
