INDEX OF AUTHORS

calls my attention also to the case of a homosexual and masochistic man 

(_Medical Record_, vol. xix) whose feelings were intensified by 

tight-lacing. 

 

[213] Some women are also able to produce the orgasm, when in a state of 

sexual excitement, by placing a cushion between the knees and pressing the 

thighs firmly together. 

 

[214] _Lecons sur les Deformations Vulvaires_, p. 64. Martineau was 

informed by a dressmaker that it is very frequent in workrooms and can 

usually be done without attracting attention. An ironer informed him that 

while standing at her work, she crossed her legs, slightly bending the 

trunk forward and supporting herself on the table by the hands; then a few 

movements of contraction of the adductor muscles of the thigh would 

suffice to produce the orgasm. 

 

[215] C.W. Townsend, "Thigh-friction in Children under one Year," Annual 

Meeting of the American Pediatric Society, Montreal, 1896. Five cases are 

recorded by this writer, all in female infants. 

 

[216] Soutzo, _Archives de Neurologie_, February, 1903, p. 167. 

 

[217] Zache, _Zeitschrift fuer Ethnologie_, 1899, p. 72. I have discussed 

what may be regarded as the normally sexual influence of dancing, in the 

third volume of these _Studies_, "The Analysis of the Sexual Impulse." 

 

[218] The case has been recorded of a Russian who had the spontaneous 

impulse to self-flagellation on the nates with a rod, for the sake of 

sexual excitement, from the age of 6. (_Rivista Mensile di Psichiatria_ 

April, 1900, p. 102.) 

 

[219] Kryptadia, vol. v, p. 358. As regards the use of nettles, see 

Duehren, _Geschlechtsleben in England_, Bd. II, p. 392.

Ch. XXX.

[224] _Functional Disorders of the Nervous System in Women_, p. 114. 

 

[225] Schrenck-Notzing, _Suggestions-therapie_, p. 13. A. Kind (_Jahrbuch 

fuer Sexuelle Zwischenstufen_, Jahrgang ix, 1908, p. 58) gives the case of 

a young homosexual woman, a trick cyclist at the music halls, who often, 

when excited by the sight of her colleague in tights, would experience the 

orgasm while cycling before the public. 

 

[226] Janet has, however, used day-dreaming--which he calls "_reveries 

subconscients_"--to explain a remarkable case of demon-possession, which 

he investigated and cured. (_Nevroses et Idees fixes_, vol. i, pp. 390 et 

seq.) 

 

[227] "Minor Studies from the Psychological Laboratory of Wellesley 

College," _American Journal of Psychology_, vol. vii, No. 1. G.E. 

Partridge ("Reverie," _Pedagogical Seminary_, April, 1898) well describes 

the physical accompaniments of day-dreaming, especially in Normal School 

girls between sixteen and twenty-two. Pick ("Clinical Studies in 

Pathological Dreaming," _Journal of Mental Sciences_, July, 1901) records 

three more or less morbid cases of day-dreaming, usually with an erotic 

basis, all in apparently hysterical men. An important study of 

day-dreaming, based on the experiences of nearly 1,500 young people (more 

than two-thirds girls and women), has been published by Theodate L. Smith 

("The Psychology of Day Dreams," _American Journal Psychology_, October, 

1904). Continued stories were found to be rare--only one per cent. Healthy 

boys, before fifteen, had day-dreams in which sports, athletics, and
