whipped upon the bare nates caused erection before the age of 9. 

He cannot account for these excitations, as at the time he had 

not learned the most rudimentary facts of sex. The spectacle of 

the boy's nudity had no attraction for him, while the beating 

aroused his indignation against the person who administered it. 

T. knew a boy and girl of about his own age whose imaginations 

dwelt somewhat morbidly upon whipping. The three used to talk 

together about such chastisement, and the little girl liked to 

read "stories that had whippings in them." None of these children 

delighted in cruelty; the fascination in the theme of castigation 

seemed to be in imagining the spectacle of the exposed nates, 

though actual witnessing of the whipping made them angry at the 

time. 

 

Accustomed to watch a young sister being bathed, T. had no 

distinct curiosity concerning the differences in sex until the 

age of 9. About this time he asked his father where babies came 

from, and was told to be quiet. When he persisted in the inquiry 

his father threatened to box his ears. His mother told him 

subsequently that doctors brought babies to mothers. He credited 

the story so far as to carefully watch the doctor who came when 

his mother "was going to have a new baby," in the hope of seeing 

a bundle in his arm. T. was 9 when he interrogated a servant-girl 

of 16 about babies and their origin. She laughed and said that 

one day she would tell him how children came. One Sunday this 

servant took T. for a country walk and initiated him in sexual 

intercourse, telling him he was too young to be a father, but 

that was the way babies were made. The girl took him into a 

field, saying she would show him how to do something which would 

make him "feel as though he was in heaven," informing him that 

she had often done this with young men. She then succeeded in 

causing erection and instructed him how to act. His feeling at 

the time was one of disgust; the appearance and odor of the 

female genitalia repelled him. Afterward, however, he wished to 

repeat the experience with girls of his own age. Finding the boy 

unresponsive, the girl took the masculine position and embraced 

him with great passion. T. can recall the expression of the 

girl's face, the perspiration on her forehead, and the whispered 

query whether it pleased him. The embrace lasted for about ten 

minutes, when the girl said it had "done her good." Later the 

same day they met a girl cousin of this servant about 10 or 12 

years old. The three went to a lonely part of the seashore. The 

servant there suggested that T. should repeat the act with the 

little girl. T. was too shy, though the girl seemed quite willing 

and experienced. The older girl told the younger to keep watch a 

few yards away, while she again brought about intercourse in the 

same way. The servant told T. not to tell anyone. Intercourse 

with the servant was never repeated after that day; from shame he 

kept the promise for many years. 

 

After this episode T. began to speculate about sexual matters and 

to observe the coupling of dogs with newly acquired interest. At 

10 years he often lay awake, listening to a woman of 25 singing 

to a piano accompaniment. The woman's voice seemed very 

beautiful, and so strongly impressed him that he fell in love 

with her and longed to embrace her sexually. This secret 

attachment was much more romantic than sensual, though the idea 

of embracing the woman seemed to T. a natural part of the 

romance. He was beginning to invest the sex with angelic 

qualities. The thought of his adventure with the servant no 

longer caused repulsion, but rather pleasure. He reflected that 

if he could meet the girl now he could be very fond of her and
