INDEX OF AUTHORS

"pommes d'amour." Thus Bachaumont, in his Journal (under date July 31, 

1773), refers to "a very extraordinary instrument of amorous mystery," 

brought by a traveler from India; he describes this "boule erotique" as 

the size of a pigeon's egg, covered with soft skin, and gilded. Cf. F.S. 

Krauss, _Geschlechtsleben in Brauch und Sitte der Japaner_, Leipzig, 1907. 

 

[190] It may be worth mentioning that the Salish Indians of British 

Columbia have a myth of an old woman having intercourse with young women, 

by means of a horn worn as a penis (_Journal of the Anthropological 

Institute_, July-Dec., 1904, p. 342). 

 

[191] In Burchard's Penitential (cap. 142-3), penalties are assigned to 

the woman who makes a phallus for use on herself or other women. 

(Wasserschleben, _Bussordnungen der abendlaendlichen Kirche_, p. 658.) The 

_penis succedaneus_, the Latin _phallus_ or _fascinum_, is in France 

called _godemiche_; in Italy, _passatempo_, and also _diletto_, whence 

_dildo_, by which it is most commonly known in England. For men, the 

corresponding _cunnus succedaneus_ is, in England, called _merkin_, which 

meant originally (as defined in old editions of Bailey's _Dictionary_) 

"counterfeit hair for women's privy parts." 

 

[192] Duehren, _Der Marquis de Sade und Seine Zeit_, 3d ed., pp. 130, 232; 

id. _Geschlechtsleben in England_, Bd. II, pp. 284 et seq. 

 

[193] Gamier, _Onanisme_, p. 378. 

 

[194] _Zeitschrift fuer Ethnologie_, 1899, p. 669. 

 

[195] The mythology of Hawaii, one may note, tells of goddesses who were 

impregnated by bananas they had placed beneath their garments. B. Stern 

mentions (_Medizin in der Tuerkei_, Bd. II, p. 24) that the women of Turkey 

and Egypt use the banana, as well as the cucumber, etc., for masturbation. 

In a poem in the _Arabian Nights_, also ("History of the Young Nour with 

the Frank"), we read: "O bananas, of soft and smooth skins, which dilate 

the eyes of young girls ... you, alone among fruits are endowed with a 

pitying heart, O consolers of widows and divorced women." In France and 

England they are not uncommonly used for the same purpose. 

 

 

 

[196] See, e.g., Winckel, _Die Krankheiten der weiblichen Harnrohre und 

Blase_, 1885, p. 211; and "Lehrbuch der Frauenkrankheiten," 1886, p. 210; 

also, Hyrtl, _Handbuch du Topographischen Anatomie_, 7th ed., Bd. II, pp. 

212-214. Gruenfeld (_Wiener medizinische Blaetter_, November 26, 1896), 

collected 115 cases of foreign body in the bladder--68 in men, 47 in 

women; but while those found in men were usually the result of a surgical 

accident, those found in women were mostly introduced by the patients 

themselves. The patient usually professes profound ignorance as to how the 

object came there; or she explains that she accidentally sat down upon it, 

or that she used it to produce freer urination. The earliest surgical case 

of this kind I happen to have met with, was recorded by Plazzon, in Italy, 

in 1621 (_De Partibus Generationi Inservientibus_, lib. ii, Ch. XIII); it 

was that of a certain honorable maiden with a large clitoris, who, seeking 

to lull sexual excitement with the aid of a bone needle, inserted it in 

the bladder, whence it was removed by Aquapendente.
