characteristic of the inverted feeling. On the contrary, it seems that 

the _pedicatio_ of the man owes its role to the analogy with the act in 

the woman, whereas among inverts it is mutual masturbation which is the 

most common sexual aim. 

 

*The Significance of Other Parts of the Body.*--Sexual infringement on 

the other parts of the body, in all its variations, offers nothing new; 

it adds nothing to our knowledge of the sexual impulse which herein only 

announces its intention to dominate the sexual object in every way. 

Besides the sexual overvaluation, a second and generally unknown factor 

may be mentioned among the anatomical transgressions. Certain parts of 

the body, like the mucous membrane of the mouth and anus, which 

repeatedly appear in such practices, lay claim as it were to be 

considered and treated as genitals. We shall hear how this claim is 

justified by the development of the sexual impulse, and how it is 

fulfilled in the symptomatology of certain morbid conditions. 

 

*Unfit Substitutes for the Sexual Object. Fetichism.*--We are especially 

impressed by those cases in which for the normal sexual object another 

is substituted which is related to it but which is totally unfit for the 

normal sexual aim. According to the scheme of the introduction we should 

have done better to mention this most interesting group of aberrations 

of the sexual impulse among the deviations in reference to the sexual 

object, but we have deferred mention of these until we became acquainted 

with the factor of sexual overestimation, upon which these 

manifestations, connected with the relinquishing of the sexual aim, 

depend. 

 

The substitute for the sexual object is generally a part of the body but 

little adapted for sexual purposes, such as the foot, or hair, or an 

inanimate object which is in demonstrable relation with the sexual 

person, and preferably with the sexuality of the same (fragments of 

clothing, white underwear). This substitution is not unjustly compared 

with the fetich in which the savage sees the embodiment of his god. 

 

The transition to the cases of fetichism, with a renunciation of a 

normal or of a perverted sexual aim, is formed by cases in which a 

fetichistic determination is demanded in the sexual object if the sexual 

aim is to be attained (definite color of hair, clothing, even physical 

blemishes). No other variation of the sexual impulse verging on the 

pathological claims our interest as much as this one, owing to the 

peculiarity occasioned by its manifestations. A certain diminution in 

the striving for the normal sexual aim may be presupposed in all these
