distraction, and devotes himself entirely to her. If, however, he 

is introduced into her cage the new environment renders him 

nervous and suspicious, and then it is she who takes the active 

part, trying to attract him in every way. The impetuosity during 

heat of female animals of various species, when at length 

admitted to the male, is indeed well known to all who are 

familiar with animals. 

 

I have referred to the frequency with which, in the human 

species,--and very markedly in early adolescence, when the sexual 

impulse is in a high degree unconscious and unrestrainedly 

instinctive,--similar manifestations may often be noted. We have 

to recognize that they are not necessarily abnormal and still 

less pathological. They merely represent the unseasonable 

apparition of a tendency which in due subordination is implied in 

the phases of courtship throughout the animal world. Among some 

peoples and in some stages of culture, tending to withdraw the 

men from women and the thought of women, this phase of courtship 

and this attitude assume a prominence which is absolutely normal. 

The literature of the Middle Ages presents a state of society in 

which men were devoted to war and to warlike sports, while the 

women took the more active part in love-making. The medieval 

poets represent women as actively encouraging backward lovers, 

and as delighting to offer to great heroes the chastity they had 

preserved, sometimes entering their bed-chambers at night. 

Schultz (_Das Hoefische Leben_, Bd. i, pp. 594-598) considers that 

these representations are not exaggerated. Cf. Krabbes, _Die Frau 

im Altfranzoesischen Karls-Epos_, 1884, p. 20 et seq.; and M.A. 

Potter, _Sohrab and Rustem_, 1902, pp. 152-163.
