fighting and sexual excitement acts in many persons as a determinant for 

the future preferred course of their sexual impulse.[22] 

 

*Affective Processes.*--The other sources of sexual excitement in the 

child are open to less doubt. Through contemporary observations, as well 

as through later investigations, it is easy to ascertain that all more 

intensive affective processes, even excitements of a terrifying nature, 

encroach upon sexuality; this can at all events furnish us with a 

contribution to the understanding of the pathogenic action of such 

emotions. In the school child, fear of a coming examination or exertion 

expended in the solution of a difficult task can become significant for 

the breaking through of sexual manifestations as well as for his 

relations to the school, inasmuch as under such excitements a sensation 

often occurs urging him to touch the genitals, or leading to a 

pollution-like process with all its disagreeable consequences. The 

behavior of children at school, which is so often mysterious to the 

teacher, ought surely to be considered in relation with their 

germinating sexuality. The sexually-exciting influence of some painful 

affects, such as fear, shuddering, and horror, is felt by a great many 

people throughout life and readily explains why so many seek 

opportunities to experience such sensations, provided that certain 

accessory circumstances (as under imaginary circumstances in reading, or 

in the theater) suppress the earnestness of the painful feeling. 

 

If we might assume that the same erogenous action also reaches the 

intensive painful feelings, especially if the pain be toned down or held 

at a distance by a subsidiary determination, this relation would then 

contain the main roots of the masochistic-sadistic impulse, into the 

manifold composition of which we are gaining a gradual insight. 

 

*Intellectual Work.*--Finally, is is evident that mental application or 

the concentration of attention on an intellectual accomplishment will 

result, especially often in youthful persons, but in older persons as 

well, in a simultaneous sexual excitement, which may be looked upon as 

the only justified basis for the otherwise so doubtful etiology of 

nervous disturbances from mental "overwork." 

 

If we now, in conclusion, review the evidences and indications of the 

sources of the infantile sexual excitement, which have been reported 

neither completely nor exhaustively, we may lay down the following 

general laws as suggested or established. It seems to be provided in the 

most generous manner that the process of sexual excitement--the nature
