was imaginary; in this case, the jury found it impossible to believe that 

so young a girl could have been lying, or hallucinated, because she 

narrated the details of the alleged offence with such circumstantial 

detail. Such cases are not uncommon, and in some measure, no doubt, they 

may be accounted for by auto-erotic nocturnal hallucinations.

epilessia_, Rome, 1896, p. 101.

The Lorraine inquisitor, Nicolas Remy, very carefully investigated the 

question of the feelings of witches when having intercourse with the 

Devil, questioning them minutely, and ascertained that such intercourse 

was usually extremely painful, filling them with icy horror (See, e.g., 

Dufour, _Histoire de la Prostitution_, vol. v, p. 127; the same author 

presents an interesting summary of the phenomena of the Witches' Sabbath). 

But intercourse with the Devil was by no means always painful. Isabel 

Gowdie, a Scotch witch, bore clear testimony to this point: "The youngest 

and lustiest women," she stated, "will have very great pleasure in their 

carnal copulation with him, yea, much more than with their own 

husbands.... He is abler for us than any man can be. (Alack! that I should 

compare him to a man!)" Yet her description scarcely sounds attractive; he 

was a "large, black, hairy man, very cold, and I found his nature as cold 

within me as spring well-water." His foot was forked and cloven; he was 

sometimes like a deer, or a roe; and he would hold up his tail while the 

witches kissed that region (Pitcairn, _Criminal Trials in Scotland_, vol. 

iii, Appendix VII; see, also, the illustrations at the end of Dr. A. 

Marie's _Folie et Mysticisme_, 1907).

also been studied by Bellamy, in a Bordeaux thesis, _Hallucinations 

Erotiques_, 1900-1901. 

 

[247] On one occasion, when still a girl, whenever an artist whom she 

admired touched her hand she felt erection and moisture of the sexual 

parts, but without any sensation of pleasure; a little later, when an 

uncle's knee casually came in contact with her thigh, ejaculation of mucus 

took place, though she disliked the uncle; again, when a nurse, on 

casually seeing a man's sexual organs, an electric shock went through her, 

though the sight was disgusting to her; and when she had once to assist a 

man to urinate, she became in the highest degree excited, though without 

pleasure, and lay down on a couch in the next room, while a conclusive 

ejaculation took place. (Moll, _Libido Sexualis_, Bd. I, p. 354.) 

 

[248] Breuer and Freud, _Studien ueber Hysterie_, 1895, p. 217. 

 

[249] Calmeil (_De la Folie_, vol. i, p. 252) called attention to the 

large part played by uterine sensations in the hallucinations of some 

famous women ascetics, and added: "It is well recognized that the 

narrative of such sensations nearly always occupies the first place in the 

divagations of hysterical virgins." 

 

[250] H. Leuba, "Les Tendances Religieuses chez les Mystiques Chretiens," 

_Revue Philosophique_, November, 1902, p. 465. St. Theresa herself states 

that physical sensations played a considerable part in this experience.
