German) told me that they had taken to it because they had heard 

that human semen was an excellent remedy against consumption, 

which disease had carried off some of their relatives, and that 

they had gradually come to like doing it. All who told me that 

they masturbated, asked me whether I did so too, and two desired 

me to show them the act, one alleging that she liked to see a man 

do it; she had been married late in life, after a "stormy youth" 

and had had, she said, a large experience of the male sex. They 

all seemed to think that however much the practice of 

self-excitement might hurt a man, and all thought that it would 

hurt him, a woman might masturbate as often as she liked, failing 

better means of satisfaction, as she had no such loss of 

substance as a man. 

 

Of the twenty-six normal women, whom I knew more intimately than 

I did the fifty-five prostitutes, thirteen, without being 

questioned by me, blurted out the fact that they were habitual 

masturbators, apparently all required to think of the loved 

person to obtain full satisfaction. _Fellatio_ was proposed, and 

fully performed, by nine, of whom three experienced the orgasm as 

soon as they perceived that I had attained to it. All were more 

or less excited while doing it. One proposed anal coitus, "just 

to see what it was like;" and three proposed _cunnilingus_, one 

having been initiated by a girl friend, and one by her husband. 

The third had, I believe, evolved the act out of her own inner 

consciousness in her desire to experience pleasure with me. My 

relations with one of the twenty-six were confined to my 

masturbation of her, the while she did _fellatio_, as she said 

that she "had no feeling inside down there." 

 

With two exceptions my partings from these normal women have not 

been tragic and all whom I have met in after life (seven) have 

been very ready to resume relations with me, four of them having 

made the proposal themselves. 

 

One thing has struck me, and that is the, often great, difference 

that exists between what a woman's looks lead one to think she 

is, and what she is when one becomes her lover; the most sensual 

woman that I have met might have sat for her portrait as the 

Madonna, and she was the only one who took pleasure in hearing 

and relating "smoking-room stories," a form of amusement which, 

perhaps from their want of appreciation of humor and wit, women 

do not indulge in--at least in my experience.
