that the coincidence observed by me is not accidental and not without 

significance. 

 

The hereditary relations of the positive perverts are not so well known 

because they know how to avoid inquiry. Still there is reason to believe 

that the same holds true in the perversions as in the neuroses. We often 

find perversions and psychoneuroses in the different sexes of the same 

family, so distributed that the male members, or one of them, is a 

positive pervert, while the females, following the repressive tendencies 

of their sex, are negative perverts or hysterics. This is a good example 

of the substantial relations between the two disturbances which I have 

discovered. 

 

*Further Elaboration.*--It cannot, however, be maintained that the 

structure of the sexual life is rendered finally complete by the 

addition of the diverse components of the sexual constitution. On the 

contrary, qualifications continue to appear and new possibilities 

result, depending upon the fate experienced by the sexual streams 

originating from the individual sources. This _further elaboration_ is 

evidently the final and decisive one while the constitution described as 

uniform may lead to three final issues. If all the dispositions assumed 

to be abnormal retain their relative proportion, and are strengthened 

with maturity, the ultimate result can only be a perverse sexual life. 

The analysis of such abnormally constituted dispositions has not yet 

been thoroughly undertaken, but we already know cases that can be 

readily explained in the light of these theories. Authors believe, for 

example, that a whole series of fixation perversions must necessarily 

have had as their basis a congenital weakness of the sexual impulse. The 

statement seems to me untenable in this form, but it becomes ingenious 

if it refers to a constitutional weakness of one factor in the sexual 

impulse, namely, the genital zone, which later in the interests of 

propagation accepts as a function the sum of the individual sexual 

activities. In this case the summation which is demanded in puberty must 

fail and the strongest of the other sexual components continues its 

activity as a perversion.[13] 

 

*Repression.*--Another issue results if in the course of development 

certain powerful components experience a _repression_--which we must 

carefully note is not a suspension. The excitations in question are 

produced as usual but are prevented from attaining their aim by psychic 

hindrances, and are driven off into many other paths until they express 

themselves in a symptom. The result can be an almost normal sexual
