a definite influence on the symptomatic expression of the neurosis, 

placing at its disposal the whole sum of intestinal disturbances. 

Considering the erogenous significance of the anal zone which has been 

retained at least in transformation, one should not laugh at the 

hemorrhoidal influences to which the old medical literature attached so 

much weight in the explanation of neurotic states. 

 

Children utilizing the erogenous sensitiveness of the anal zone can be 

recognized by their holding back of fecal masses until through 

accumulation there result violent muscular contractions; the passage of 

these masses through the anus is apt to produce a marked irritation of 

the mucus membrane. Besides the pain this must produce also a sensation 

of pleasure. One of the surest premonitions of later eccentricity or 

nervousness is when an infant obstinately refuses to empty his bowel 

when placed on the chamber by the nurse and reserves this function at 

its own pleasure. It does not concern him that he will soil his bed; all 

he cares for is not to lose the subsidiary pleasure while defecating. 

The educators have again the right inkling when they designate children 

who withhold these functions as bad. The content of the bowel which is 

an exciting object to the sexually sensitive surface of mucous membrane 

behaves like the precursor of another organ which does not become active 

until after the phase of childhood. In addition it has other important 

meanings to the nursling. It is evidently treated as an additional part 

of the body, it represents the first "donation," the disposal of which 

expresses the pliability while the retention of it can express the 

spite of the little being towards its environment. From the idea of 

"donation" he later gains the meaning of the "babe" which according to 

one of the infantile sexual theories is acquired through eating and is 

born through the bowel. 

 

The retention of fecal masses, which is at first intentional in order to 

utilize them, as it were, for masturbatic excitation of the anal zone, 

is at least one of the roots of constipation so frequent in neuropaths. 

The whole significance of the anal zone is mirrored in the fact that 

there are but few neurotics who have not their special scatologic 

customs, ceremonies, etc., which they retain with cautious secrecy. 

 

Real masturbatic irritation of the anal zone by means of the fingers, 

evoked through either centrally or peripherally supported itching, is 

not at all rare in older children.
