INDEX OF AUTHORS

who lately, when dining out, met a girl, the daughter of a 

country vicar; he was not specially attracted to her and paid her 

no special attention. "A few days afterward he was astonished to 

receive a call from her one afternoon (though his address is not 

discoverable from any recognized source). She sat down as near to 

him as she could, and rested her hand on his thigh, etc., while 

talking on different subjects and drinking tea. Then without any 

verbal prelude she asked him to have connection with her. Though 

not exactly a Puritan, he is not the man to jump at such an offer 

from a woman he is not in love with, so, after ascertaining that 

the girl was _virgo intacta_, he declined and she went away. A 

fortnight or so later he received a letter from her in the 

country, making no reference to what had passed, but giving an 

account of her work with her Sunday-school class. He did not 

reply, and then came a curt note asking him to return her letter. 

My friend feels sure she was devoted to auto-erotic performances, 

but, having become attracted to him, came to the conclusion she 

would like to try normal intercourse." 

 

Wolbarst, studying the prevalence of gonorrhea among boys in New 

York (especially, it would appear, in quarters where the 

foreign-born elements--mainly Russian Jew and south Italian--are 

large), states: "In my study of this subject there have been 

observed 3 cases of gonorrheal urethritis, in boys aged, 

respectively, 4, 10, and 12 years, which were acquired in the 

usual manner, from girls ranging between 10 and 12 years of age. 

In each case, according to the story told by the victim, the girl 

made the first advances, and in I case, that of the 4-year-old 

boy, the act was consummated in the form of an assault, by a 

girl 12 years old, in which the child was threatened with injury 

unless he performed his part." (A.L. Wolbarst, _Journal of the 

American Medical Association_, Sept. 28, 1901.) In a further 

series of cases (_Medical Record_, Oct. 29, 1910) Wolbarst 

obtained similar results, though he recognizes also the frequency 

of precocious sexuality in the young boys themselves. 

 

Gibb states, concerning assaults on children by women: "It is 

undeniably true that they occur much more frequently than is 

generally supposed, although but few of the cases are brought to 

public notice, owing to the difficulty of proving the charge." 

(W.T. Gibb, article "Indecent Assaults upon Children," in A. 

McLane Hamilton's _System of Legal Medicine_, vol. i, p. 651.) 

Gibb's opinion carries weight, since he is medical adviser for 

the New York Society for the Protection of Children, and 

compelled to sift the evidence carefully in such cases. 

 

It should be mentioned that, while a sexual curiosity exercised 

on younger children is, in girls about the age of puberty, an 

ill-regulated, but scarcely morbid, manifestation, in older women 

it may be of pathological origin. Thus, Kisch records the case of 

a refined and educated lady of 30 who had been married for nine 

years, but had never experienced sexual pleasure in coitus. For a 

long time past, however, she had felt a strong desire to play 

with the genital organs of children of either sex, a proceeding 

which gave her sexual pleasure. She sought to resist this impulse 

as much as possible, but during menstruation it was often 

irresistible. Examination showed an enlarged and retroflexed 

uterus and anesthesia of vagina. (Kisch, _Die Sterilitaet des 

Weibes_, 1886, p. 103.) The psychological mechanism by which an 

anesthetic vagina leads to a feeling of repulsion for normal 

coitus and normal sexual organs, and directs the sexual feelings 

toward more infantile forms of sexuality, is here not difficult
