INDEX OF AUTHORS

flight from the South he experiences several weeks of an almost 

ideal existence, his food is plentiful, he becomes strong and 

hearty, and then he turns to thoughts of love. In the pairing 

season he does more work than at any other time in the year: 

fantastic dances, racing and chasing after the females, and 

savage fights with rivals. He endures more than would be possible 

in his ordinary physical state. Then come the care of the young 

and the long flights for water and food during the drought of the 

summer. After the molt, autumn finds him once more in flock, and 

with the first frosts he is off again to the South. In the wild 

state, rut is the capstone of perfect physical condition." (A.W. 

Johnstone, "The Relation of Menstruation to the other 

Reproductive Functions," _American Journal of Obstetrics_, vol. 

xxxii, 1895.) 

 

Wiltshire ("Lectures on the Comparative Physiology of 

Menstruation," _British Medical Journal_, March, 1888) and 

Westermarck (_History of Human Marriage_, Chapter II) enumerate 

the pairing season of a number of different animals. 

 

With regard to the breeding seasons of monkeys, little seems to 

be positively known. Heape made special inquiries with reference 

to the two species whose sexual life he investigated. He was 

informed that _Semnopithecus entellus_ breeds twice a year, in 

April and in October. He accepts Aitcheson's statement that the 

_Macacus rhesus_, in Simla, copulates in October, and adds that 

in the very different climate of the plains it appears to 

copulate in May. He concludes that the breeding season varies 

greatly in dependence on climate, but believes that the breeding 

season is always preserved, and that it affects the sexual 

aptitude of the male. He could not make his monkeys copulate 

during February or March, but is unable to say whether or not 

sexual intercourse is generally admitted outside the breeding 

season. He quotes the observation of Breschet that monkeys 

copulate during pregnancy. 

 

In primitive human races we very frequently trace precisely the same 

influence of the seasonal impulse as may be witnessed in the higher 

animals, although among human races it does not always result that the 

children are born at the time of the greatest plenty, and on account of 

the development of human skill such a result is not necessary. Thus Dr. 

Cook found among the Eskimo that during the long winter nights the 

secretions are diminished, muscular power is weak, and the passions are 

depressed. Soon after the sun appears a kind of rut affects the young 

population. They tremble with the intensity of sexual passion, and for 

several weeks much of the time is taken up with courtship and love. Hence, 

the majority of the children are born nine months later, when the four 

months of perpetual night are beginning. A marked seasonal periodicity of 

this kind is not confined to the Arctic regions. We may also find it in 

the tropics. In Cambodia, Mondiere has found that twice a year, in April 

and September, men seem to experience a "veritable rut," and will 

sometimes even kill women who resist them.[129] 

 

These two periods, spring and autumn--the season for greeting the 

appearance of life and the season for reveling in its final 

fruition--seem to be everywhere throughout the world the most usual 

seasons for erotic festivals. In classical Greece and Rome, in India,
