every race of which we have any intimate knowledge, however natural the 

conditions under which men and women may live.[185] Thus, among the Nama 

Hottentots, among the young women at all events, Gustav Fritsch found that 

masturbation is so common that it is regarded as a custom of the country; 

no secret is made of it, and in the stories and legends of the race it is 

treated as one of the most ordinary facts of life. It is so also among the 

Basutos, and the Kaffirs are addicted to the same habit.[186] The Fuegians 

have a word for masturbation, and a special word for masturbation by 

women.[187] When the Spaniards first arrived at Vizcaya, in the 

Philippines, they found that masturbation was universal, and that it was 

customary for the women to use an artificial penis and other abnormal 

methods of sexual gratification. Among the Balinese, according to Jacobs 

(as quoted by Ploss and Bartels), masturbation is general; in the boudoir 

of many a Bali beauty, he adds, and certainly in every harem, may be found 

a wax penis to which many hours of solitude are devoted. Throughout the 

East, as Eram, speaking from a long medical experience, has declared, 

masturbation is very prevalent, especially among young girls. In Egypt, 

according to Sonnini, it is prevalent in harems. In India, a medical 

correspondent tells me, he once treated the widow of a wealthy Mohammedan, 

who informed him that she began masturbation at an early age, "just like 

all other women." The same informant tells me that on the _facade_ of a 

large temple in Orissa are bas-reliefs, representing both men and women, 

alone, masturbating, and also women masturbating men. Among the Tamils of 

Ceylon masturbation is said to be common. In Cochin China, Lorion remarks, 

it is practiced by both sexes, but especially by the married women.[188] 

Japanese women have probably carried the mechanical arts of auto-erotism 

to the highest degree of perfection. They use two hollow balls about the 

size of a pigeon's egg (sometimes one alone is used), which, as described 

by Joest, Christian, and others,[189] are made of very thin leaf of brass; 

one is empty, the other (called the little man) contains a small heavy 

metal ball, or else some quicksilver, and sometimes metal tongues which 

vibrate when set in movement; so that if the balls are held in the hand 

side by side there is a continuous movement. The empty one is first 

introduced into the vagina in contact with the uterus, then the other; the 

slightest movement of the pelvis or thighs, or even spontaneous movement 

of the organs, causes the metal ball (or the quicksilver) to roll, and the 

resulting vibration produces a prolonged voluptuous titillation, a gentle 

shock as from a weak electric inductive apparatus; the balls are called 

_rin-no-tama_, and are held in the vagina by a paper tampon. The women who 

use these balls delight to swing themselves in a hammock or rocking-chair, 

the delicate vibration of the balls slowly producing the highest degree of 

sexual excitement. Joest mentions that this apparatus, though well known 

by name to ordinary girls, is chiefly used by the more fashionable 

_geishas_, as well as by prostitutes. Its use has now spread to China, 

Annam, and India. Japanese women also, it is said, frequently use an 

artificial penis of paper or clay, called e.g.. Among the Atjeh, again, 

according to Jacobs (as quoted by Ploss), the young of both sexes 

masturbate and the elder girls use an artificial penis of wax. In China,
