[201] Dudley, _American Journal of Obstetrics_, July, 1889, p. 758. 

 

[202] A. Reverdin, "Epingles a Cheveux dans la Vessie," _Revue Medicale de 

la Suisse Romande_, January 20, 1888. His cases are fully recorded, and 

his paper is an able and interesting contribution to this by-way of sexual 

psychology. The first case was a school-master's wife, aged 22, who 

confessed in her husband's presence, without embarrassment or hesitation, 

that the manoeuvre was habitual, learned from a school-companion, and 

continued after marriage. The second was a single woman of 42, a _cure's_ 

servant, who attempted to elude confession, but on leaving the doctor's 

house remarked to the house-maid, "Never go to bed without taking out your 

hair-pins; accidents happen so easily." The third was an English girl of 

17 who finally acknowledged that she had lost two hair-pins in this way. 

The fourth was a child of 12, driven by the pain to confess that the 

practice had become a habit with her. 

 

[203] "One of my patients," remarks Dr. R.T. Morris, of New York, 

(_Transactions of the American Association of Obstetricians_, for 1892, 

Philadelphia, vol. v), "who is a devout church-member, had never allowed 

herself to entertain sexual thoughts referring to men, but she masturbated 

every morning, when standing before the mirror, by rubbing against a key 

in the bureau-drawer. A man never excited her passions, but the sight of a 

key in any bureau-drawer aroused erotic desires." 

 

[204] Freud (_Drei Abhandlungen zur Sexualtheorie_, p. 118) refers to the 

sexual pleasure of swinging. Swinging another person may be a source of 

voluptuous excitement, and one of the 600 forms of sexual pleasure 

enumerated in De Sade's _Les 120 Journees de Sodome_ is (according to 

Duehren) to propel a girl vigorously in a swing. 

 

[205] The fact that horse exercise may produce pollutions was well 

recognized by Catholic theologians, and Sanchez states that this fact need 

not be made a reason for traveling on foot. Rolfincius, in 1667, pointed 

out that horse-riding, in those unaccustomed to it, may lead to nocturnal 

pollutions. Rohleder (_Die Masturbation_, pp. 133-134) brings together 

evidence regarding the influence of horse exercise in producing sexual 

excitement. 

 

[206] A correspondent, to whom the idea was presented for the first time, 

wrote: "Henceforward I shall know to what I must attribute the 

bliss--almost the beatitude--I so often have experienced after traveling 

for four or five hours in a train." Penta mentions the case of a young 

girl who first experienced sexual desire at the age of twelve, after a 

railway journey.
