[153] Venturi, _Degenerazioni Psico-sessuali_, pp. 408-410. 

 

[154] _Anatomy of Melancholy_, Part III, Section II, Mem. II, Sub. II. 

 

[155] _British Gynaecological Journal_, February, 1887, p. 505. 

 

[156] Power, _Lancet_, November 26, 1887. 

 

[157] With regard to the sexual relationships of personal odor, see the 

previous volume of these _Studies_, "Sexual Selection in Man," section on 

Smell. 

 

[158] In European folk-lore thick lips in a woman are sometimes regarded 

as a sign of sensuality, Kryptadia, vol. ii, p, 258. 

 

[159] The direct dependence of sexual pigmentation on the primary sexual 

glands is well illustrated by a true hermaphroditic adult finch exhibited 

at the Academy of Sciences of Amsterdam (May 31, 1890); this bird had a 

testis on the right side and an ovary on the left, and on the right side 

its plumage was of the male's colors, on the left of the female's color. 

 

[160] See. e.g., Papillault, _Bulletin Societe d'Anthropologie_, 1899, p. 

446. 

 

[161] Guinard, Art. "Castration," Richet's _Dictionnaire de Physiologie_. 

 

[162] J. Whitridge Williams, _Obstetrics_, 1903, p. 132. 

 

[163] _Zeitschrift fuer Ethnologie_, 1878, p. 19. 

 

[164] C. Pitre, _Medicina Populare Siciliana_, p. 47. In England, from 

notes sent to me by one correspondent, it would appear that the proportion 

of dark and sexually apt women to fair and sexually apt women is as 3 to 

1. The experience of others would doubtless give varying results, and in 

any case the fallacies are numerous. See, in the previous volume of these 

_Studies_, "Sexual Selection in Man," Section IV. 

 

[165] In Japan the same belief would appear to be held. In a nude figure 

representing the typical voluptuous woman by the Japanese painter Marugama 

Okio (reproduced in Ploss's _Das Weib_) the pubic and axillary hair is 

profuse, though usually sparse in Japan. 

 

[166] _Centralblatt fuer Gynaekologie_, No. 9, 1896. 

 

[167] It is important to remember that there is little correlation in this 

matter between the hair of the head and the sexual hair, if not a certain 

opposition. (See _ante_, p. 127.) According to one of the aphorisms of 

Hippocrates, repeated by Buffon, eunuchs do not become bald, and Aristotle 

seems to have believed that sexual intercourse is a cause of baldness in 

men. (Laycock, _Nervous Diseases of Women_, p. 23.) 

 

[168] For some of the evidence on this point, see Havelock Ellis, "The 

Comparative Abilities of the Fair and the Dark," _Monthly Review_, August, 

1901; cf. id., _A Study of British Genius_, Chapter X.
