50; the accumulation only produces muddleheadedness.  But I have not suffered accumulation over ten to at most twelve days.  The quantity of semen is also less.  The sensibility of the corpora has declined much; that of the glans is unimpaired.  Erection is good.  Orgasm takes two to four minutes to provoke, against forty to fifty seconds when young; it is in some respects even more enjoyable—­perhaps less intense, but much more prolonged.  I have no reaction from indulgence.  But I never press it; it always presses me.  For overaccumulation, with headache or muddleheadedness, the wifely hand is more efficacious than the vulva.  Even the most vivid dream of coitus fails to compass the orgasm now.  The peripheral stimulus is essential.
“In our case physical and psychical intensity of emotion have gone hand in hand.  I have become specialized to one woman, despite an erotic endowment certainly not meager.  The pervasive fragrance makes one adore the whole sex, but my wife does not interpret this homage in a sexually promiscuous sense.  We both agree in the principle that if one cannot hold the affection of the other there is no title to it.  Tarde says that constancy in love is rarely anything but a voyage of discovery round the beloved object.  I am perpetually making fresh discoveries.  But her constancy, I mean the high level of her passion, is independent of discoveries.”


[230] “A practical question arising out of the foregoing is whether such semen should be committed to the vagina?  Its presence is known to me by constitutional symptoms (toxic).  It is the last to be expelled, and its degenerate germ-cells have no chance against those of the normal fluid deposited in preceding acts, supposing that to be retained.  But it may well happen that the prior emissions only reach the pouch, whereas the last is injected into the womb itself.  I have frequently had the sense of the orifices of meatus and cervix matching directly, especially when she had powerful orgasm (including two conceptions), and of the semen being sucked from me rather than occluded in its exit, as also happens, requiring me to relax the urge a little.  At 18 to 19 the semen of a ‘pollution’ has left tender red patches where it dried on the neighboring skin, and deep straw-colored stains in the linen.”
