Excerpt from A Practical Treatise on Disorders of the Sexual Function, in the Male and FemaleThe great majority of cases of sexual disorders which come to the observation of the practitioner, and which are at the same time amenable to treatment, are those which fall under the heading of sexual neuroses, and it is these, therefore, which require our chief consideration.Some time ago, while preparing a paper on Sexual Neuroses which was subsequently read at a meeting of The Harlem Medical Association of New York City, I asked several genitourinary specialists to discuss the paper, but was met with the reply either that they were not at all interested in the subject, or that they were so ignorant of the theme as to be unable to discuss it.
One of the gentlemen went so far as to doubt the very existence of such a condition as sexual neurosis.
Thus, although some of these gentlemen had made an enviable reputation for their achievements in genitourinary work, not only in this country, but also abroad, they had entirely neglected this portion of the specialty, and I was therefore compelled to resort to the services of a neurologist to open the discussion.As a matter of fact, it must be stated that most of the literature on sexual neuroses comes, not from genitourinary specialists, but from neurologists.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
