experienced, and we may be sure that nature has devised definite means 

so as not to leave this occurrence to mere chance. The arrangement which 

has fulfilled this purpose for the lip-zone we have already discussed; 

it is the simultaneous connection of this part of the body with the 

taking of nourishment. We shall also meet other similar mechanisms as 

sources of sexuality. The state of desire for repetition of 

gratification can be recognized through a peculiar feeling of tension 

which in itself is rather of a painful character, and through a 

centrally-determined feeling of itching or sensitiveness which is 

projected into the peripheral erogenous zone. The sexual aim may 

therefore be formulated as follows: the chief object is to substitute 

for the projected feeling of sensitiveness in the erogenous zone that 

outer stimulus which removes the feeling of sensitiveness by evoking the 

feeling of gratification. This external stimulus consists usually in a 

manipulation which is analogous to sucking. 

 

It is in full accord with our physiological knowledge if the desire 

happens to be awakened also peripherally through an actual change in the 

erogenous zone. The action is puzzling only to some extent as one 

stimulus for its suppression seems to want another applied to the same 

place. 

 

 

THE MASTURBATIC SEXUAL MANIFESTATIONS[13] 

 

It is a matter of great satisfaction to know that there is nothing 

further of greater importance to learn about the sexual activity of the 

child after the impulse of one erogenous zone has become comprehensible 

to us. The most pronounced differences are found in the action necessary 

for the gratification, which consists in sucking for the lip zone and 

which must be replaced by other muscular actions according to the 

situation and nature of the other zones. 

 

*The Activity of the Anal Zone.*--Like the lip zone the anal zone is, 

through its position, adapted to conduct the sexuality to the other 

functions of the body. It should be assumed that the erogenous 

significance of this region of the body was originally very large. 

Through psychoanalysis one finds, not without surprise, the many 

transformations that are normally undertaken with the usual excitations 

emanating from here, and that this zone often retains for life a 

considerable fragment of genital irritability.[14] The intestinal 

catarrhs so frequent during infancy produce intensive irritations in 

this zone, and we often hear it said that intestinal catarrh at this 

delicate age causes "nervousness." In later neurotic diseases they exert
