INDEX OF AUTHORS

allowing the other to tickle the roof of it. (I. Rosse, _Virginia Medical 

Monthly_, October, 1892.) 

 

[181] Fere, "Perversions sexuelles chez les animaux," _Revue 

Philosophique_, May, 1897. 

 

[182] Tillier, _L'Instinct Sexuel_, 1889, p. 270. 

 

[183] Moll, _Libido Sexualis_, Bd. I, p. 76. The same author mentions 

(ibid., p. 373) that parrots living in solitary confinement masturbate by 

rubbing the posterior part of the body against some object until 

ejaculation occurs. Edmund Selous ("Habits of the Peewit," _Zooelogist_, 

April, 1902) suggests that the peewit, when rolling on the ground, and 

exerting pressure on the anal region, is moved by a sexual impulse to 

satisfy desire; he adds that actual orgasm appears eventually to take 

place, a spasm of energy passing through the bird. 

 

[184] Dr. J.W. Howe (_Excessive Venery, Masturbation, and Continence_, 

London and New York, 1883, p. 62) writes of masturbation: "In savage lands 

it is of rare occurrence. Savages live in a state of Nature. No moral 

obligations exist which compel them to abstain from a natural 

gratification of their passions. There is no social law which prevents 

them from following the dictates of their lower nature. Hence, they have 

no reason for adopting onanism as an outlet for passions. The moral 

trammels of civilized society, and ignorance of physiological laws, give 

origin to the vice." Every one of these six sentences is incorrect or 

misleading. They are worth quoting as a statement of the popular view of 

savage life. 

 

[185] I can recall little evidence of its existence among the Australian 

aborigines, though there is, in the Wiradyuri language, spoken over a 

large part of New South Wales, a word (whether ancient or not, I do not 

know) meaning masturbation (_Journal of the Anthropological Institute_, 

July-Dec., 1904, p. 303). Dr. W. Roth (_Ethnological Studies Among the 

Northwest-Central Queensland Aborigines_, p. 184), who has carefully 

studied the blacks of his district, remarks that he has no evidence as to 

the practice of either masturbation or sodomy among them. More recently 

(1906) Roth has stated that married men in North Queensland and elsewhere 

masturbate during their wives' absence. As regards the Maori of New 

Zealand, Northcote adds, there is a rare word for masturbation (as also at 

Rarotonga), but according to a distinguished Maori scholar there are no 

allusions to the practice in Maori literature, and it was probably not 

practiced in primitive times. The Maori and the Polynesians of the Cook 

Islands, Northcote remarks, consider the act unmanly, applying to it a 

phrase meaning "to make women of themselves." (Northcote, loc. cit., p. 

232.) 

 

[186] Greenlees, _Journal of Mental Science_, July, 1895. A gentleman long 

resident among the Kaffirs of South Natal, told Northcote, however, that 

he had met with no word for masturbation, and did not believe the practice 

prevailed there.
