INDEX OF AUTHORS

I am as strong sexually at 38 as I was at 20, only I never want 

women unless I am brought into actual contact with them and they 

are hairy and have large pelvic development. I am in excellent 

health. Genitals are well developed, and I am clothed with hair 

from the chin to the genitals. My skull is dolichocephalic. I am 

violent and tenacious in temper, high-strung, and rapid in 

thought and action. My digestion is good, but I have a tendency 

to constipation. Occasionally I have a twinge of pain below the 

occipital region. 

 

"My early views of women have changed; I no longer deify them, 

though I study them. I have known very sensual women living at 

home in respectable middle-class society. One, in particular, a 

girl of 18, after coitus used to excite me lingually. I have had 

a sweetheart who remained _virgo intacta_. Had I seduced her, as 

I could have done, I should have lost all interest in her. I 

could never bear the presence of naked men, and would never go to 

a public swimming bath for that reason. I regard myself as a man 

of abnormally strong, but, on the whole, healthy and wholesome, 

sexual feelings. As a rule, I have coitus twice or oftener in one 

week and I practise withdrawal. I am a total abstainer, and never 

could embrace a woman who smelled of drink." 

 

 

HISTORY VI.--The writer of the following is a man of letters, 

married. "Quite early I remember a strange and romantic interest 

in the feminine. Certainly before I was 9 I had a strong 

affection for a little girl playmate; our family lost sight of 

hers, and I saw and heard nothing of her for sixteen years; then, 

hearing she was coming to town, I experienced quite a flutter of 

heart, so strong had been the impression caused at even the early 

age of our acquaintance. Not that I mean to say I never wavered 

in between! Through the whole of my boyhood I remember persistent 

romantic interests in girls and women, whose smooth, fair faces 

and sweet voices exercised ever a subtle attraction over me. 

Before I was 12 I had picked out my 'future wife' a dozen times 

at least! (A different one each time of course!) Curiosity as to 

the physical detail of sex and birth was singularly absent. 

Possibly this was partly due to the fact that the only younger 

member of our family was born when I was but 4 years old. Grave, 

shy, and reserved, I was never taken into the counsels of 

prurient schoolmates. I was unaware that there was such 

discussion between them--though it is, I suppose, not probable 

that our school was exempt. I was a great reader, and when about 

12 or 13 I came across a reference to an illegitimate child which 

puzzled me. Ere long, however, in my random and extensive reading 

I hit on a book that touched on phallicism, and I learned that 

there were male and female organs of generation. I had neither 

shame nor curiosity; I jumped to the conclusion that during close 

caresses somehow a subtle aroma arose from the man to fertilize 

the woman; I left the subject at this, satisfied, and had no 

inkling of the real intimacy of the embrace. 

 

"About 14, much interested in Bradlaugh, I bought both the 

Knowlton pamphlet and Mrs. Besant's population book. I found the 

physical details in scientific language so dull that I could not 

peruse them. By reading the argumentative passages I learned that 

_somehow_ (I knew not how) children could be produced or not 

produced as desired; and in this stage of the matter it seemed 

to me so admirable that it should be so that I wondered why there 

should be cavil. 

 

"About this age my elder brother believed it to be his duty to 

tell me the secrets of sex; I remember his talking to me, while 

I, bored and uninterested, thought of something else. When he
