INDEX OF AUTHORS

women are to a much larger extent shut out from such gratification; 

moreover, while in rare cases women are sexually precocious, it more often 

happens that their sexual impulses only gain strength and 

self-consciousness after adolescence has passed. I have been much 

impressed by the frequency with which masturbation is occasionally 

(especially about the period of menstruation) practiced by active, 

intelligent, and healthy women who otherwise lead a chaste life. This 

experience is confirmed by others who are in a position to ascertain the 

facts among normal people; thus a lady, who has received the confidence of 

many women, told me that she believes that all women who remain unmarried 

masturbate, as she found so much evidence pointing in this direction.[314] 

This statement certainly needs some qualification, though I believe it is 

not far from the truth as regards young and healthy women who, after 

having normal sexual relationships, have been compelled for some reason or 

other to break them off and lead a lonely life.[315] But we have to 

remember that there are some women, evidently with a considerable degree 

of congenital sexual anaesthesia (no doubt, in some respect or another 

below the standard of normal health), in whom the sexual instinct has 

never been aroused, and who not only do not masturbate, but do not show 

any desire for normal gratification; while in a large proportion of other 

cases the impulse is gratified passively in ways I have already referred 

to. The auto-erotic phenomena which take place in this way, spontaneously, 

by yielding to revery, with little or no active interference, certainly 

occur much more frequently in women than in men. On the other hand, 

contrary to what one might be led to expect, the closely-related 

auto-erotic phenomena during sleep seem to take place more frequently in 

men, although in women, as we have found ground for concluding, they 

reverberate much more widely and impressively on the waking psychical 

life. 

 

We owe to Restif de la Bretonne what is perhaps the earliest 

precise description of a woman masturbating. In 1755 he knew a 

dark young woman, plain but well-made, and of warm temperament, 

educated in a convent. She was observed one day, when gazing from 

her window at a young man in whom she was tenderly interested, to 

become much excited. "Her movements became agitated; I approached 

her, and really believe that she was uttering affectionate 

expressions; she had become red. Then she sighed deeply, and 

became motionless, stretching out her legs, which she stiffened, 

as if she felt pain." It is further hinted that her hands took 

part in this manoeuvre (_Monsieur Nicolas_, vol. vi, p. 143). 

 

Pictorial representations of a woman masturbating also occur in 

eighteenth century engravings. Thus, in France, Baudouin's "Le 

Midi" (reproduced in Fuchs's _Das Erotische Element in der 

Karikatur_, Fig. 92), represents an elegant young lady in a 

rococo garden-bower; she has been reading a book she has now just 

dropped, together with her sunshade; she leans languorously back, 

and her hand begins to find its way through her placket-hole. 

 

Adler, who has studied masturbation in women with more care than 

any previous writer, has recorded in detail the auto-erotic 

manifestations involved in the case of an intelligent and
