hereditary. You cannot entirely eradicate a natural instinct, but that 

by continually repressing it, by giving it no chance to assert itself, 

you may weaken it--about this there can be no question. 

 

The second cause is masturbation. Cases that have been addicted to 

excessive masturbation are very apt to develop not only frigidity, but 

complete aversion to the sexual act, and inability to experience any 

pleasure or orgasm. Such cases we come across every day. 

 

A third very important cause is sexual weakness in the husband. When 

the husband is sexually weak (suffering with premature ejaculations) 

he either fails to awaken the sexual instinct in the woman, or if it 

has been awakened it is apt to turn not only into frigidity but into 

aversion to the act. 

 

The fourth cause is often merely dislike towards the husband. The last 

two causes, weakness of the husband and dislike towards him, are 

unfortunately very frequent, and a wife who was frigid with one 

husband may show herself very passionate on marrying another man. 

 

The fifth cause is fear of pregnancy. 

 

The above are the five principal causes. Other causes may be disease 

of the uterus, laceration of the cervix, inflammation of the ovaries, 

vaginismus, disease of the thyroid gland, etc. 

 

It is an unfortunate fact that women who were frigid up to the age of 

forty or so may become very passionate after that age. 

 

As to the treatment of frigidity, little or nothing can be done for 

frigidity that is congenital. Most of the other kinds of frigidity, 

however, can be cured.
