INDEX OF AUTHORS

from its former use as a magic charm and as a therapeutic agent) is in

animals it is normal as a measure of hygiene in relation to their young. 

Thus, as, e.g., the Rev. Arthur East writes, the mistle thrush swallows 

the droppings of its young. (_Knowledge_, June 1, 1899, p. 133.) In the 

dog I have observed that the bitch licks her puppies shortly after birth 

as they urinate, absorbing the fluid. 

 

[31] See, e.g., the previous volume of these _Studies_, "Sexual Selection 

in Man," pp. 165 et seq., and Duehren, _Geschlechtsleben in England_, bd. 

ii, pp. 258, et seq. 

 

[32] In the study of _Love and Pain_ in a previous volume (p. 130) I have 

quoted the remarks of a lady who refers to the analogy between sexual 

tension and vesical tension--"Cette volupte que ressentent les bords de la 

mer, d'etre toujours pleins sans jamais deborder"--and its erotic 

significance.
