INDEX OF AUTHORS

is there, perhaps, another soul with similar longings living near 

you? How often in summer have I gone to the lakes and streams 

outside cities to seek boys bathing; but I always came back 

unsatisfied, whether I found any or not. And in winter I have 

been irresistibly impelled to return to the same spots, as if it 

were sanctified by the boys, but my darlings had vanished and 

cold winds blew over the icy floods, so that I would return 

feeling as though I had buried all my happiness. 

 

"It must be borne in mind, therefore, that what I have to say 

regarding my sexual impulses only refers to fancies and never to 

their practical realization. My sensual impulses are not 

connected with the sexual organs; all my voluptuous ideas are not 

in the least connected with these parts. For this reason I have 

never practiced onanism and _immissio membri in anum_ is as 

repulsive to me as to a normal man. Even every imitation of 

coitus is, for me, without attraction. In a boy's body two things 

specially excite me: _his belly and his nates_, the first as 

containing the digestive tract, the second as holding the opening 

of the bowels. Of the vegetable processes of life in the boy none 

interest me nearly so much as the progress of his digestion and 

the process of defecation. It is incredible to what an extent 

this part of physiology has occupied me from youth. If as a boy I 

wanted to read something of a piquantly exciting character I 

sought in my father's encyclopaedia for articles like: 

Obstruction, Constipation, Haemorrhoids, Faeces, etc. No function 

of the body seemed to be so significant as this, and I regarded 

its disturbances as the most important in the whole mechanism of 

life. The description of other disorders I could read in cold 

blood, but intussusception of the bowels makes me ill even 

to-day. I am always extremely pleased to hear that the digestion 

of the people around me is in good condition. A man who did not 

sufficiently watch over his digestion aroused distrust in me, and 

I imagined that wicked men must be horribly indifferent regarding 

this weighty matter. Even more than in ordinary persons was I 

interested in the digestion of more mysterious beings, like 

magicians in legends, or men of other nations. I would willingly 

have made an anthropological study of my favorite subject, only 

to my annoyance books nearly always pass over the matter in 

silence. In history and fiction I regretted the absence of 

information concerning the state of my heroes' digestion when 

they languished in prison or in some unaccustomed or unhealthy 

spot. For this reason I held no book more precious than one which 

describes how a young man after being shipwrecked lived for a 

long time in a narrow snow-hut, and it was conscientiously stated 

that he became aware of digestive disturbances. No immorality 

angers me more than the foolish practice of ladies who in society 

neglect the satisfaction of their natural needs from misplaced 

motives of modesty. On a railway journey I suffer horribly from 

the thought that one of my fellow-travelers may be prevented from
