INDEX OF AUTHORS

cases have been incidentally recorded in which the patients found 

masturbation beneficial, and such cases might certainly have been 

enormously increased if there had been any open-eyed desire to discover 

them. My own observations agree with those of Sudduth, who asserts that 

"masturbation is, in the main, practiced for its sedative effect on the 

nervous system. The relaxation that follows the act constitutes its real 

attraction.... Both masturbation and sexual intercourse should be classed 

as typical sedatives."[346] 

 

Gall (_Fonctions du Cerveau_, 1825, vol. iii, p. 235) mentioned a 

woman who was tormented by strong sexual desire, which she 

satisfied by masturbation ten or twelve times a day; this caused 

no bad results, and led to the immediate disappearance of a 

severe pain in the back of the neck, from which she often 

suffered. Clouston (_Mental Diseases_, 1887, p. 496) quotes as 

follows from a letter written by a youth of 22: "I am sure I 

cannot explain myself, nor give account of such conduct. 

Sometimes I felt so uneasy at my work that I would go to the 

water-closet to do it, and it seemed to give me ease, and then I 

would work like a hatter for a whole week, till the sensation 

overpowered me again. I have been the most filthy scoundrel in 

existence," etc. Garnier presents the case of a monk, aged 33, 

living a chaste life, who wrote the following account of his 

experiences: "For the past three years, at least, I have felt, 

every two or three weeks, a kind of fatigue in the penis, or, 

rather, slight shooting pains, increasing during several days, 

and then I feel a strong desire to expel the semen. When no 

nocturnal pollution follows, the retention of the semen causes 

general disturbance, headache, and sleeplessness. I must confess 

that, occasionally, to free myself from the general and local 

oppression, I lie on my stomach and obtain ejaculation. I am at 

once relieved; a weight seems to be lifted from my chest, and 

sleep returns." This patient consulted Gamier as to whether this 

artificial relief was not more dangerous than the sufferings it 

relieved. Gamier advised that if the ordinary _regime_ of a 

well-ordered monastry, together with anaphrodisiac sedatives, 

proved inefficacious, the manoeuvre might be continued when 

necessary (P. Garnier, _Celibat et Celibataires_, 1887, p. 320). 

H.C. Coe (_American Journal of Obstetrics_, p. 766, July, 1889) 

gives the case of a married lady who was deeply sensitive of the 

wrong nature of masturbation, but found in it the only means of 

relieving the severe ovarian pain, associated with intense sexual 

excitement, which attended menstruation. During the 

intermenstrual period the temptation was absent. Turnbull knew a 

youth who found that masturbation gave great relief to feelings 

of heaviness and confusion which came on him periodically; and 

Wigglesworth has frequently seen masturbation after epileptic 

fits in patients who never masturbated at other times. Moll 

(_Libido Sexualis_, Bd. I, p. 13) refers to a woman of 28, an 

artist of nervous and excitable temperament, who could not find 

sexual satisfaction with her lover, but only when masturbating, 

which she did once or twice a day, or oftener; without 

masturbation, she said, she would be in a much more nervous
