seq._) discusses the same point; he does not consider that 

animals will of their own motion sexually cohabit with women, but 

that they may be easily trained to it. There can be no doubt that 

dogs at all events are sometimes sexually excited by the presence 

of women, perhaps especially during menstruation, and many women 

are able to bear testimony to the embarrassing attentions they 

have sometimes received from strange dogs. There can be no 

difficulty in believing that, so far as _cunnilinctus_ is 

concerned dogs would require no training. In a case recorded by 

Moll (_Kontraere Sexualempfindung_, third edition, p. 560) a lady 

states that this was done to her when a child, as also to other 

children, by dogs who, she said, showed signs of sexual 

excitement. In this case there was also sexual excitement thus 

produced in the child, and after puberty mutual _cunnilinctus_ 

was practiced with girl friends. Guttceit (_Dreissig Jahre 

Praxis_, Theil I, p. 310) remarks that some Russian officers who 

were in the Turkish campaign of 1828 told him that from fear of 

veneral infection in Wallachia they refrained from women and 

often used female asses which appeared to show signs of sexual 

pleasure. 

 

A very large number of animals have been recorded as having been employed 

in the gratification of sexual desire at some period or in some country, 

by men and sometimes by women. Domestic animals are naturally those which 

most frequently come into question, and there are few if any of these 

which can altogether be excepted. The sow is one of the animals most 

frequently abused in this manner.[51] Cases in which mares, cows, and 

donkeys figure constantly occur, as well as goats and sheep. Dogs, cats, 

and rabbits are heard of from time to time. Hens, ducks, and, especially 

in China, geese, are not uncommonly employed. The Roman ladies were said 

to have had an abnormal affection for snakes. The bear and even the 

crocodile are also mentioned.[52] 

 

The social and legal attitude toward bestiality has reflected in part the 

frequency with which it has been practiced, and in part the disgust mixed 

with mystical and sacrilegious horror which it has aroused. It has 

sometimes been met merely by a fine, and sometimes the offender and his 

innocent partner have been burnt together. In the middle ages and later 

its frequency is attested by the fact that it formed a favorite topic with 

preachers of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. It is significant that 

in the Penitentials,--which were criminal codes, half secular and half 

spiritual, in use before the thirteenth century, when penance was 

relegated to the judgment of the confessor,--it was thought necessary to 

fix the periods of penance which should be undergone respectively by 

bishops, priests and deacons who should be guilty of bestiality. 

 

In Egbert's Penitential, a document of the ninth and tenth 

centuries, we read (V. 22): "Item Episcopus cum quadrupede 

fornicans VII annos, consuetudinem X, presbyter V, diaconus III, 

clerus II." There was a great range in the penances for 

bestiality, from ten years to (in the case of boys) one hundred
