INDEX OF AUTHORS

may mention the case of a man of 57, a somewhat eccentric preacher, etc., 

who writes: "My whole nature goes out so to some persons, and they thrill 

and stir me so that I have an emission while sitting by them with no 

thought of sex, only the gladness of soul found its way out thus, and a 

glow of health suffused the whole body. There was no spasmodic conclusion, 

but a pleasing gentle sensation as the few drops of semen passed." (In 

reality, no doubt, not semen, but urethral fluid.) This man's condition 

may certainly be considered somewhat morbid; he is attracted to both men 

and women, and the sexual impulse seems to be irritable and weak; but a 

similar state of things exists so often in women, no doubt due to sexual 

repression, and in individuals who are in a general state of normal and 

good health, that in these it can scarcely be called morbid. Brooding on 

sexual images, which the theologians termed _delectatio morosa_, may lead 

to spontaneous orgasm in either sex, even in perfectly normal persons. 

Hammond described as a not uncommon form of "psychic coitus," a condition 

in which the simple act of imagination alone, in the presence of the 

desired object, suffices to produce orgasm. In some public conveyance, 

theatre, or elsewhere, the man sees a desirable woman and by concentrating 

his attention on her person and imagining all the stages of intimacy he 

quickly succeeds in producing orgasm.[222] Niceforo refers to an Italian 

work-girl of 14 who could obtain ejaculation of mucus four times a day, in 

the workroom in the presence of the other girls, without touching herself 

or moving her body, by simply thinking of sexual things.[223] 

 

If the orgasm occurs spontaneously, without the aid of mental impressions, 

or any manipulations _ad hoc_, though under such conditions it ceases to 

be sinful from the theological standpoint, it certainly ceases also to be 

normal. Serieux records the case of a somewhat neurotic woman of 50, who 

had been separated from her husband for ten years, and since lived a 

chaste life; at this age, however, she became subject to violent crises of 

sexual orgasm, which would come on without any accompaniment of voluptuous 

thoughts. MacGillicuddy records three cases of spontaneous orgasm in women 

coming under his notice.[224] Such crises are frequently found in both men 

and women, who, from moral reasons, ignorance, or on other grounds are 

restrained from attaining the complete sexual orgasm, but whose sexual 

emotions are, literally, continually dribbling from them. Schrenck-Notzing 

knows a lady who is spontaneously sexually excited on hearing music or 

seeing pictures without anything lascivious in them; she knows nothing of 

sexual relationships. Another lady is sexually excited on seeing beautiful 

and natural scenes, like the sea; sexual ideas are mixed up in her mind 

with these things, and the contemplation of a specially strong and 

sympathetic man brings the orgasm on in about a minute. Both these ladies 

"masturbate" in the streets, restaurants, railways, theatres, without 

anyone perceiving it.[225] A Brahmin woman informed a medical 

correspondent in India that she had distinct though feeble orgasm, with 

copious outflow of mucus, if she stayed long near a man whose face she 

liked, and this is not uncommon among European women. Evidently under such 

conditions there is a state of hyperaesthetic weakness. Here, however, we 

are passing the frontiers of strictly auto-erotic phenomena.
