1903, gives a number of autobiographic reports of normal persons 

treating their first sexual feelings in childhood and the causes of the 

same. These reports naturally show the deficiency due to infantile 

amnesia; they do not cover the prehistoric time in the sexual life and 

therefore must be supplemented by psychoanalysis of individuals who 

became neurotic. Notwithstanding this these reports are valuable in more 

than one respect, and information of a similar nature has urged me to 

modify my etiological assumption as mentioned in the text. 

 

[19] The above-mentioned assertions concerning the infantile sexuality 

were justified in 1905, in the main through the results of 

psychoanalytic investigations in adults. Direct observation of the child 

could not at the time be utilized to its full extent and resulted only 

in individual indications and valuable confirmations. Since then it has 

become possible through the analysis of some cases of nervous disease in 

the delicate age of childhood to gain a direct understanding of the 

infantile psychosexuality (Jahrbuch fuer psychoanalytische und 

psychopathologische Forschungen, Bd. 1, 2, 1909). I can point with 

satisfaction to the fact that direct observation has fully confirmed the 

conclusion drawn from psychoanalysis, and thus furnishes good evidence 

for the reliability of the latter method of investigation. 

 

Moreover, the "Analysis of a Phobia in a Five-year-old Boy" (Jahrbuch, 

Bd. 1) has taught us something new for which psychoanalysis had not 

prepared us, to wit, that sexual symbolism, the representation of the 

sexual by non-sexual objects and relations--reaches back into the years 

when the child is first learning to master the language. My attention 

has also been directed to a deficiency in the above-cited statement 

which for the sake of clearness described any conceivable separation 

between the two phases of autoerotism and object love as a temporal 

separation. From the cited analysis (as well as from the above-mentioned 

work of Bell) we learn that children from three to five are capable of 

evincing a very strong object-selection which is accompanied by strong 

affects. 

 

[20] Some persons can recall that the contact of the moving air in 

swinging caused them direct sexual pleasure in the genitals. 

 

[21] "Those who love each other tease each other." 

 

[22] The analyses of neurotic disturbances of walking and of agoraphobia 

remove all doubt as to the sexual nature of the pleasure of motion. As 

everybody knows modern cultural education utilizes sports to a great
