exhausted by repeated acts of coitus within a short period, 

notwithstanding that the nervous excitement in their case is as 

great, if not greater, and he considered that this showed that 

the loss of semen is a cause of exhaustion in men. Loewenfeld 

(_Sexualleben und Nervenleiden_, pp. 74, 153) states that there 

cannot be question that the nervous system in women is less 

influenced by the after-effects of coitus than in men. Not only, 

he remarks, are prostitutes very little liable to suffer from 

nervous overstimulation, and neurasthenia and hysteria when 

occurring in them be easily traceable to other causes, but 

"healthy women who are not given to prostitution, when they 

indulge in very frequent sexual intercourse, provided it is 

practised normally, do not experience the slightest injurious 

effect. I have seen many young married couples where the husband 

had been reduced to a pitiable condition of nervous prostration 

and general discomfort by the zeal with which he had exercised 

his marital duties, while the wife had been benefited and was in 

the uninterrupted enjoyment of the best health." This experience 

is by no means uncommon. 

 

A correspondent writes: "It is quite true that the threshold of 

excess is less easily reached by women than by men. I have found 

that women can reach the orgasm much more frequently than men. 

Take an ordinary case. I spend two hours with ----. I have the 

orgasm 3 times, with difficulty; she has it 6 or 8, or even 10 or 

12, times. Women can also experience it a second or third time in 

succession, with no interval between. Sometimes the mere fact of 

realizing that the man is having the orgasm causes the woman to 

have it also, though it is true that a woman usually requires as 

many minutes to develop the orgasm as a man does seconds." I may 

also refer to the case recorded in another part of this volume in 

which a wife had the orgasm 26 times to her husband's twice. 

Hutchinson, under the name of post-marital amblyopia (_Archives 

of Surgery_, vol. iv, p. 200), has described a condition 

occurring in men in good health who soon after marriage become 

nearly blind, but recover as soon as the cause is removed. He 

mentions no cases in women due to coitus, but finds that in 

women some failure of sight may occur after parturition.
