impulses which create new sexual aims and appear independently of the 

erogenous zones. Nevertheless, the eye corresponds to an erogenous zone 

in the looking and exhibition mania, while the skin takes on the same 

part in the pain and cruelty components of the sexual impulse. The skin, 

which in special parts of the body becomes differentiated as sensory 

organs and modified by the mucous membrane, is the erogenous zone, 

[Greek: kat] ex ogen.[28] 

 

 

EXPLANATION OF THE MANIFEST PREPONDERANCE OF SEXUAL PERVERSIONS IN THE 

PSYCHONEUROSES 

 

The sexuality of psychoneurotics has perhaps been placed in a false 

light by the above discussions. It appears that the sexual behavior of 

the psychoneurotic approaches in predisposition to the pervert and 

deviates by just so much from the normal. Nevertheless, it is very 

possible that the constitutional disposition of these patients besides 

containing an immense amount of sexual repression and a predominant 

force of sexual impulse also possesses an unusual tendency to 

perversions in the broadest sense. However, an examination of milder 

cases shows that the last assumption is not an absolute requisite, or at 

least that in pronouncing judgment on the morbid effects one ought to 

discount the effect of one of the factors. In most psychoneurotics the 

disease first appears after puberty following the demands of the normal 

sexual life. Against these the repression above all directs itself. Or 

the disease comes on later, owing to the fact that the libido is unable 

to attain normal sexual gratification. In both cases the libido behaves 

like a stream the principal bed of which is dammed; it fills the 

collateral roads which until now perhaps have been empty. Thus the 

manifestly great (though to be sure negative) tendency to perversion in 

psychoneurotics may be collaterally conditioned; at any rate, it is 

certainly collaterally increased. The fact of the matter is that the 

sexual repression has to be added as an inner factor to such external 

ones as restriction of freedom, inaccessibility to the normal sexual 

object, dangers of the normal sexual act, etc., which cause the origin 

of perversions in individuals who might have otherwise remained normal. 

 

In individual cases of neurosis the behavior may be different; now the 

congenital force of the tendency to perversion may be more decisive and 

at other times more influence may be exerted by the collateral increase 

of the same through the deviation of the libido from the normal sexual 

aim and object. It would be unjust to construe a contrast where a
