"IV. Among females the emotional sexual phenomena most frequently 

obtrude themselves, and I believe that if it were possible to 

induce people to relate their dreams they would very often be 

found to be of a sexual character." 

 

Much more important than the general motor phenomena, more purposive 

though involuntary, are the specifically sexual muscular movements. From 

the very beginning of detumescence, indeed, muscular activity makes itself 

felt, and the peripheral muscles of sex act, according to Kobelt's 

expression, as a peripheral sexual heart. In the male these movements are 

fairly obvious and fairly simple. It is required that the semen should be 

expressed from the vesiculae seminales, propelled along the urethra, in 

combination with the prostatic fluid which is equally essential, and 

finally ejected with a certain amount of force from the urethral orifice. 

Under the influence of the stimulation furnished by the contact and 

friction of the vagina, this process is effectively carried out, mainly by 

the rhythmic contractions of the bulbo-cavernosus muscle, and the semen is 

emitted in a jet which may be ejaculated to a distance varying from a few 

centimeters to a meter or more. 

 

With regard to the details of the psychic sides of this process a 

correspondent, a psychologist, writes as follows:-- 

 

"I have never noticed in my reading any attempt to analyze the 

sensations which accompany the orgasm, and, as I have made a good 

many attempts to make such an analysis myself, I will append the 

results on the chance that they may be of some value. I have 

checked my results so far as possible by comparing them with the 

experience of such of my friends as had coitus frequently and 

were willing to tell me as much as they could of the psychology 

of the process. 

 

"The first fact that I hit upon was the importance of pressure. 

As one of my informants picturesquely phrases it--'the tighter 

the fit the greater the pleasure.' This agrees, too, with their 

unanimous testimony that the pleasurable sensations were much 

greater when the orgasm occurred simultaneously in the man and 

woman. Their analysis seldom went further than this, but a few 

remarked that the distinctive sensations accompanying the orgasm 

seem to begin near the root of the penis or in the testes, and 

that they are qualitatively different from the tickling 

sensations which precede them. 

 

"These tickling sensations are caused, I think, by the friction 

of the glands against the vaginal walls, and are supplemented by 

other sensations from the urethra, whose nerves are stimulated by 

pressure of the vaginal walls and sphincter. The specific 

sensation of the orgasm begins, I believe, with a strong 

contraction of the muscles of the urethral walls along the entire 

length of the canal, and is felt as a peculiar ache starting 

from the base of the penis and quickly becoming diffused through 

the whole organ. This sensation reaches its climax with the 

expulsion of the semen into the urethra and the consequent 

feeling of distention, which is instantly followed by the
