cuffed, and suffered tortures from nervousness. She has, however, 

acquired a large measure of self-control. 

 

The first sensations which she now recognizes as sexual were 

experienced at the age of 3, when her mother gave her an 

injection; afterward she declared herself unable to relieve her 

bowels naturally in order to obtain a repetition of this 

experience, which was several times repeated. At the age of 7 a 

man pursued her with attentions and attempted to take liberties, 

but she rejected his advances in terror; four years later another 

man attempted to assault her, but she resisted vigorously, struck 

him, and escaped by running. Neither of these sexual attempts 

appears to have left any serious permanent impression on the 

child's mind. 

 

At the age of 11, when her mother was giving her a bath, the 

sensation of her mother's fingers touching her private parts gave 

her what she now knows to be sexual feelings, and a year later 

when taking her bath she would pour hot water on to the sexual 

region in order to cause these sensations; this did not lead to 

masturbation, but she had a vague idea that it was "wrong." 

 

At the age of 12 menstruation began; she suffered very severely 

from dysmenorrhea, the period sometimes lasting for ten days, and 

the pain being often extreme. She was not treated for this 

condition, her mother being of opinion that she would outgrow it. 

From the age of 14 or 15 until 23, or about the period of her 

marriage, she suffered from anemia. 

 

She had little curiosity about sexual matters; her mother wished 

that she should always come to her for information about things 

she became acquainted with as to the general facts of sex; she 

did not, however, know definitely the facts of copulation until 

her marriage. She knew nothing of erection or semen, and thought 

that when a man and woman placed their organs together a child 

resulted. She hated talking about these subjects indecently, and 

would not listen to the sexual conversation of her schoolfellows. 

She never felt any homosexual attraction. Once another girl was 

much in love with her, but she despised and disliked her 

attentions; again, when a girl much older than herself, a friend 

of her mother's, slept with her and made advances, she repelled 

her and refused to sleep with her again. 

 

She always got on well with men, and men were attracted to her. 

She was direct and sincere, without undue modesty. But she never 

allowed men to touch her or kiss her. She was a good dancer, and 

fond of dancing, but denies that it ever led to sexual feelings. 

She never felt any sexual attraction for a man until, at the age 

of 20, she fell in love with her future husband five years or 

more before marriage. 

 

At this period she began to feel vague discomfort, which she knew 

to be localized near her sexual organs. She was aware, in a dim 

way, that it was connected with her love, and was of a sexual 

nature. But there was no definite idea of sexual intercourse. She 

felt nervous and depressed. If she had been asked to state what 

would relieve her, she could only have said B.'s presence and 

tenderness. A few days before he declared his love she 

experienced the nearest approach to sexual feeling she had ever 

had. It was summer and, with B. and some of her family, she had 

gone on a little expedition. One evening, in the train after a 

day's excursion, B. took her hand (unperceived by the others) and 

held it for some time. This aroused the strongest emotions in 

her; she closed her eyes, and, though she was not at the time 

aware that her sensations were localized in her sexual organs, 

she thinks, in the light of subsequent knowledge, that she then 

experienced the orgasm.
