When, as is most commonly the case, it is the process of urination and not 

the urine itself which is attractive, we are clearly concerned with a 

symbolism of act and not with the fetichistic attraction of an excretion. 

When the excretion, apart from the act, provides the attraction, we seem 

usually to be in the presence of an olfactory fetichism. These fetichisms 

connected with the excreta appear to be experienced chiefly by individuals 

who are somewhat weak-minded, which is not necessarily the case in regard 

to those persons for whom the act, rather than its product apart from the 

beloved person, is the attractive symbol. 

 

The sexually symbolic nature of the act of urination for many 

people is indicated by the existence, according to Bloch, who 

enumerates various kinds of indecent photographs, of a group 

which he terms "the notorious _pisseuses_." It is further 

indicated by several of the reproductions in Fuch's _Erotsiche 

Element in der Karikatur_, such as Delorme's "La Necessite n'a 

point de Loi." (It should be added that such a scene by no means 

necessarily possesses any erotic symbolism, as we may see in 

Rembrandt's etching commonly called "Le Femme qui Pisse," in 

which the reflected lights on the partly shadowed stream furnish 

an artistic motive which is obviously free from any trace of 

obscenity.) In the case which Krafft-Ebing quotes from Maschka of 

a young man who would induce young girls to dance naked in his 

room, to leap, and to urinate in his presence, whereupon seminal 

ejaculation would take place, we have a typical example of 

urolagnic symbolism in a form adequate to produce complete 

gratification. A case in which the urolagnic form of scatalogic 

symbolism reached its fullest development as a sexual perversion 

has been described in Russia by Sukhanoff (summarized in 

_Archives d'Anthropologie Criminelle_, November, 1900, and 

_Annales Medico-psychologiques_, February, 1901), that of a young 

man of 27, of neuropathic temperament, who when he once chanced 

to witness a woman urinating experienced voluptuous sensations. 

From that moment he sought close contact with women urinating, 

the maximum of gratification being reached when he could place 

himself in such a position that a woman, in all innocence, would 

urinate into his mouth. All his amorous adventures were concerned 

with the search for opportunities for procuring this difficult 

gratification. Closets in which he was able to hide, winter 

weather and dull days he found most favorable to success. (A 

somewhat similar case is recorded in the _Archives de 

Neurologie_, 1902, p. 462.) 

 

In the case of a robust man of neuropathic heredity recorded by 

Pelanda some light is shed on the psychic attitude in these 

manifestations; there was masturbation up to the age of 16, when 

he abandoned the practice, and up to the age of 30 found complete 

satisfaction in drinking the still hot urine of women. When a 

lady or girl in the house went to her room to satisfy a need of 

this kind, she had hardly left it but he hastened in, overcome by 

extreme excitement, culminating in spontaneous ejaculation. The
