INDEX OF AUTHORS

 

During the engagement, which lasted between two and three years, 

circumstances prevented frequent meetings. B. would kiss her, 

suck her nipples, which became erect, and lie on her. She allowed 

him to take these liberties, feeling that if she refused him all 

satisfaction he might have relations with other women. She still 

felt no definite desire for contact of the sexual organs. She 

longed rather to be embraced and kissed, and to lie in her 

lover's arms all night. A few months before marriage, however, 

she masturbated occasionally, just before or just after 

menstruation, imagining, while doing it, that she was in her 

lover's arms. The act was usually followed by a sick feeling. 

Just before marriage she underwent an operation for the relief of 

the dysmenorrhea. She was somewhat shocked and sickened by the 

experiences of the wedding night. It seemed to her that her 

husband approached her with the violence of an animal, and there 

was some difficulty in effecting entrance. Coitus, though 

incomplete, took place some seven times on this first night. The 

bleeding from rupture of the hymen continued, so that for two 

days she had to wear a towel. For two months subsequently there 

was great pain during intercourse, although she suppressed the 

indications of this. 

 

There were several children born of the marriage and for some 

years she lived happily, on the whole, with her husband, 

notwithstanding various hardships and difficulties and some 

incompatibility of temper. 

 

As regards her sexual feelings she considers, from what other 

women have told her, that her feelings are, if anything, stronger 

than the average. The orgasm, however, was not fully developed 

until about five years after marriage. Sexual feeling is most 

pronounced before, during, and after the menstrual period, more 

especially before and about the third day (the period usually 

lasts from five to seven days). There is more sexual desire 

during pregnancy, especially toward the end, than at any other 

time. She never refused normal intercourse to her husband, but 

any abnormal or perverted method of sexual gratification is 

repellent. She was awakened one night about the third month of 

pregnancy by her husband inserting his penis _in ore_; the child 

was born with palate defect and she is herself inclined to 

believe that this incident was the cause of the defect. Though 

she desires normal intercourse, she has seldom obtained complete 

gratification. For a long time she disliked seeing or touching 

the penis, and the feel, and especially the smell, of the semen 

produced nausea and even vomiting. (She has a very delicate sense 

of smell as well as of taste; though fond of the scent of 

flowers, no sexual feelings are thus aroused.) Withdrawal and the 

use of condoms are unsatisfactory to her, and mutual masturbation 

gives no relief and produces headache. Feelings of friendship for 

her husband have been most potent in arousing the sexual 

emotions, and she has had most pleasure in intercourse after a 

day spent in bicycling together. She has been for many months at 

a time without sexual intercourse, and during such periods has 

suffered much from pain in the head; this, however, she has now 

completely surmounted. She eventually discovered that her 

husband's abstinence from marital intercourse was due to 

infidelity. This led to a definite separation. She still 

occasionally experiences sexual desire, but has no inclination to 

masturbate. Her life is full and busy, affording ample scope for 

her energies and intelligence; moreover, she has her children to 

train and educate. She herself believes that her sexual life is 

at an end.
