INDEX OF AUTHORS

understand things better. At this time he had not masturbated, 

nor even heard of the practice. One day, while playing with a 

girl of his own age, he succeeded in overcoming her shyness and 

induced her to expose herself, at the same time uncovering his 

own sexual parts. On this occasion and once afterward he 

succeeded in penetrating the vulva. Both he and the girl 

experienced imperfect enjoyment. 

 

At boarding-school, where he was sent at 10, T. learned the 

vulgar phrases for sexual organs and sexual acts, and acquired 

the habit of moderate masturbation. Coarse talk and indecent 

jests about the opposite sex were common amusements of the 

playroom and dormitories. At first the obscene conversation was 

very distasteful; later he became more used to it, but thought it 

strange that sex intimacy should be a subject for ridicule and 

jest. 

 

He began to read love-stories and think much about girls. At the 

same time he learned the nature of "the sin of fornication," and 

wondered why it should be considered so heinous. Parts of the 

Bible condemning intercourse between the unmarried alarmed him. 

Being of a serious as well as emotional and amorous nature, he 

became converted to evangelic belief. His mother warned him to 

beware of unclean companions at school. He tried to act as a 

Christian and think only pure thoughts about women. The talk, 

however, was always of girls and of being in love. His mind was 

often engrossed with amatory ideas of a poetic, sensuous nature, 

his sexual experiences having a firm hold on his imagination, 

while they gave him gratifying assurance of actual knowledge 

concerning things merely imagined by most of his companions. 

 

His health was vigorous and he keenly enjoyed all outdoor games 

and excelled in daring and schoolboy mischief. 

 

At 12 he fell deeply in love with a girl of corresponding age. He 

never felt any powerful sexual desire for his sweetheart, and 

never attempted anything but kissing and decorous caresses. He 

liked to walk and sit with the girl, to hold her hand, and stroke 

her soft hair. He felt real grief when separated from her. His 

thoughts of her were seldom sensual. A year or so afterward he 

had a temporary passion for a woman of 30, who used to flirt with 

him and allow kissing. T. thought her queen-like and very lovely, 

and wished to be her knight. 

 

One day he saw, for a moment, in a friend's house, a dark, 

earnest-looking girl of 13, who made a very deep impression upon 

him, and, though he did not exchange a word with her, he often 

thought about her afterward. Five years later he met the dark 

girl again, and the pair were mutually drawn to one another. He 

proposed marriage and avowed a most desperate passion. A refusal 

on the plea of youth caused him the deepest misery. About eight 

years thereafter T. married the girl, and the marriage proved a 

very happy one for both. 

 

When he was 15 T. made the acquaintance of a pretty blonde of the 

same age. She was a high-spirited hoiden. They were soon close 

friends and later lovers. They wrote a number of letters to each 

other and exchanged locks of hair and presents. Their talk about 

love was unreserved. One day she told T. that she had been 

sexually embraced by a former lover, a boy of 16, hinting very 

plainly that she would like T. to embrace her. This amour lasted 

for about six months. The lovers had many opportunities for 

clandestine intercourse. They used to consummate their passion in 

a part of a wood they called "the bower." Now and then one or the 

other would experience a pricking of conscience, but they were 

too passionately attached to each other to sever the intimacy. At 

length the girl began to dread the risk of conception and the 

intercourse ceased. Looking back upon this episode T. avers that
