INDEX OF AUTHORS

discusses briefly but comprehensively the normal and more especially the 

pathological odors of the body and of its secretions and excretions. 

 

[36] Venturi, _Degenerazione Psicho-sessuale_, p. 417. 

 

[37] Quoted by Fere, _L'Instinct Sexuel_, 1902, p. 133. 

 

[38] H. Ling Roth, "On Salutations," _Journal of the Anthropological 

Institute_, November, 1889. 

 

[39] See Appendix A: "The Origins of the Kiss." 

 

[40] See, e.g., passage quoted by I. Bloch, _Beitraege zur AEtiologie der 

Psychopathia Sexualis_, Teil II, p. 205. 

 

[41] It must at the same time be remembered that the more or less degree 

of exposure involved by sexual intercourse is itself a cause of nasal 

congestion and sneezing. 

 

[42] Fere, _Pathologie des Emotions_, p. 81 

 

[43] J.N. Mackenzie similarly suggests (_Johns Hopkins Hospital Bulletin_, 

No. 82, 1898) that "irritation and congestion of the nasal mucous membrane 

precede, or are the excitants of, the olfactory impression that forms the 

connecting link between the sense of smell and erethism of the 

reproductive organs exhibited in the lower animals." 

 

[44] _Les Odeurs dans les Romans de Zola_, Montpellier, 1889. 

 

[45] Toulouse, _Emile Zola_, pp. 163-165, 173-175. 

 

[46] P.J. Moebius, _Das Pathologische bei Nietzsche_. 

 

[47] Moll has a passage on the sense of smell in the blind, more 

especially in sexual respects, _Untersuchungen ueber die Libido Sexualis_, 

bd. 1, pp. 137 et seq. 

 

[48] See, for instance, his poem, "Love Perfumes all Parts," in which he 

declares that "Hands and thighs and legs are all richly aromatical." And 

compare the lyrics entitled "A Song to the Maskers," "On Julia's Breath," 

"Upon Julia's Unlacing Herself," "Upon Julia's Sweat," and "To Mistress 

Anne Soame." 

 

[49] There are various indications that Goethe was attentive to the 

attraction of personal odors; and that he experienced this attraction 

himself is shown by the fact that, as he confessed, when he once had to 

leave Weimar on an official journey for two days he took a bodice of Frau 

von Stein's away in order to carry the scent of her body with him. 

 

[50] Hagen has brought together from the literature of the subject a 

number of typical cases of olfactory fetichism, _Sexuelle Osphresiologie_, 

1901, pp. 82 et seq. 

 

[51] Moll's inquiries among normal persons have also shown that few people 

are conscious of odor as a sexual attraction. (_Untersuchungen ueber die 

Libido Sexualis_. Bd. I, p. 133.) 

 

[52] Marro, _La, Puberta_, 1898, Chapter II. Tardif found in boys that 

perfumes exerted little or no influence on circulation and respiration 

before puberty, though his observations on this point were too few to 

carry weight.
