habitually permit a certain feeling to develop, if you repeatedly 

repress it at the very beginning, at its first manifestation, it is 

apt to atrophy altogether, to become permanently suppressed, or the 

suppression develops into a nervous disorder. 

 

Among the medical profession no perfect unanimity has been reached as 

to the role of the orgasm in impregnation. Some sexologists like Kisch 

and Vaerting believe it does play an important role; others, like 

Forel, believe it plays none. That the orgasm is not _necessary_ for 

impregnation admits of no discussion. Women who suffer from frigidity 

in an extreme degree, women who never experienced an orgasm, women who 

repress their orgasm, women in sleep or under narcosis, women who have 

been raped, women who loathe their husbands, become pregnant 

frequently and readily. But does it play any role at all? Does it 

facilitate impregnation? Other things being equal, will intercourse 

accompanied by an orgasm be more likely to prove fruitful than one in 

which the orgasm was entirely absent? This question I am forced to 

answer in the affirmative. Because from the various investigations I 

have made it can hardly be subject to doubt that the uterus during an 

orgasm exerts a certain amount of suction; and that impregnation is 

_more likely_ to follow when the spermatozoa are sucked up into the 

uterus than when left to make their own way by their own power of 

motion, stands to reason and goes without saying. In the former 

instance it takes less time for the spermatozoa to reach the ovum, and 

there is less chance for them to perish on the way--from malnutrition 

or from coming in contact with secretions of an acid reaction. There 

is another point. I do not bring it forth as a proved fact or as a 

fact susceptible to proof. It is a mere hypothesis, but in my opinion 

it is a correct and plausible hypothesis. I believe that the strong 

spasmodic contractions that take place during the orgasm have an 

influence not only in accelerating the bursting of a Graafian follicle 

and the extrusion of an ovum, but they are instrumental in aiding the 

Fallopian tube to grasp the ovum and helping it along on the road 

towards the uterus. It is therefore not at all inconceivable that 

conception may take place during or within a very short time after an 

act which is accompanied by a proper orgasm. Many women claim to 

experience peculiar unmistakable sensations as soon as conception has 

taken place, and by calculating the day of probable delivery we know 

that they are right. Taking therefore all the various data into 

consideration we are fully justified in saying that while an orgasm or 

a voluptuous sensation during the act is not at all _necessary_ to 

impregnation, it is in many cases a helpful factor.
