In this way Freud would account for the fact that tabooed persons and 

things are both sacred and unclean.

[191] This statement has been questioned. It should, however, be fairly 

evident that the sexual organs in either sex, when closely examined, can 

scarcely be regarded as beautiful except in the eyes of a person of the 

opposite sex who is in a condition of sexual excitement, and they are not 

always attractive even then. Moreover, it must be remembered that the 

snake-like aptitude of the penis to enter into a state of erection apart 

from the control of the will puts it in a different category from any 

other organ of the body, and could not fail to attract the attention of 

primitive peoples so easily alarmed by unusual manifestations. We find 

even in the early ages of Christianity that St. Augustine attached immense 

importance to this alarming aptitude of the penis as a sign of man's 

sinful and degenerate state.

Westermarck, _History of Marriage_, p. 357; Grosse, _Anfaenge der Kunst_,

Finck, _Primitive Love and Love-stories_, p. 89 et seq. 

 

[194] "The Phenomena of Sexual Periodicity." The subject has also been 

more recently discussed by Walter Heape, "The 'Sexual Season' of Mammals," 

_Quarterly Journal of Microscopical Science_, vol. xliv, 1900. See also 

F.H.A. Marshall, _The Physiology of Reproduction_, 1910. 

 

[195] This view finds a belated supporter in Max Marcuse 

("Geschlechtstrieb des Urmenschens," _Sexual-Probleme_, Oct., 1909), who, 

on grounds which I cannot regard as sound, seeks to maintain the belief 

that the sexual instinct is more highly developed among savage than among 

civilized peoples.
