HISTORY III.--B. states that his first sexual thoughts and acts 

were curiously connected with whipping. At 12 he and another boy 

used to beat each other with a cricket bat upon the bare nates, 

and afterward indulge in mutual masturbation. He cannot remember 

the beginning of his sexual speculation as a child, nor how he 

learned masturbation. When he was 13 he used to discuss erotic 

matters with a schoolfellow who was in the habit of engaging in 

vulvar intercourse with a girl of his own age. The intercourse 

was practised on the way home from school, and in a standing 

posture. B. embraced the girl in the same way. He is not 

interested in the psychological aspects of the sexual emotion. 

Although his sex passion was early kindled, he never had commerce 

with prostitutes. He thinks that his youthful experiences had no 

ill effect upon him morally, mentally, or physically. He 

practised masturbation in moderation till he married, at the age 

of 31. 

 

 

HISTORY IV.--"I can remember" (writes the subject) "trotting away 

as a youngster about 5 with another boy to 'see a girl's legs'; 

the idea emanated from the other boy, but I was vaguely 

interested. How or where we were going to see the object in 

question I do not remember nor anything further than the 

intention. When 6 or 7 I remember being put to bed with the nurse 

girl and feeling her bare arm with undoubted sexual excitement; I 

remember, too, gradually feeling along the arm very cautiously, 

fearing the girl would wake and being bitterly disappointed to 

find it was merely the arm. I am almost certain I had then no 

idea of sex, but the disappointment was actual. 

 

"These are the only early experiences of the sort I can remember. 

When about 9 I had others. On the coast of the north of England, 

which had then very few visitors and seemed to me very remote, I 

lived in a farm-house and used to assist the girls of the farm in 

looking after young cattle. These girls certainly instilled 

sexual ideas, though I did not realize them with precision. They 

used to talk about things a good many of which, I can now see, I 

did not then understand as they did. I liked to see these girls 

wading with their dresses tucked up. About this time I fell 

passionately in love with a girl cousin, but do not remember 

having any sensual ideas in regard to her. I cannot say that 

these early experiences had any influence on my later sexual 

development so far as I am consciously aware. I have always 

remembered them vaguely, never with sexual excitement. 

 

"Sexual dreams took place first at about the age of 13; there was 

then emission and sensation in sleep. These were, however, not 

much associated with distinctly sexual dreams. All that I recall 

after them was the sensation, which, however, I did not even then 

absolutely localize. Masturbation was undoubtedly the direct 

result of these dreams. It was tried at first tentatively, out of 

curiosity to determine if the sensation of the dream could be so 

reproduced. Sexual dreams, such as I have described, occurred 

frequently, although I cannot say at what interval. I have never 

experienced the slightest attraction for the same sex." 

 

 

HISTORY V.--"My maternal grandfather" (writes the subject of this 

history) "was a small farmer who kept a few beagles and 

greyhounds for hare-hunting. He had three daughters, one of whom 

became my mother. One of his sporting companions, a doctor of 

profligate habits and a drunkard, seduced my mother at the age of 

20. When her condition was discovered she had to flee from the 

violence of her father, and I was born some distance from her 

home. After my grandfather's death I was reared by my 

grandmother, and saw nothing of my mother until I was nearly 16;
