tell them that it is bad and injurious to handle one's genitals, and 

we must warn them to shun any companions who wish to initiate them 

into any manipulations of these parts or who show an inclination to 

talk about the sexual organs and sex matters. 

 

Hot baths are very injurious for young children in their influence in 

this direction. There is no question that a hot bath has a very 

decided stimulating effect upon the sexual desire of adults as well as 

of children, both male and female; in fact, I have had several 

patients of either sex tell me that their first masturbatory act was 

committed while they were in a hot bath. Of course, the sensation 

having been pleasurable, they kept on repeating the experience. 

 

Every factor liable to give rise to the habit should be removed. Thus, 

for instance, eczema about the genitals, strongly acid urine, 

seatworms, and the like, should be treated until cured. That anything 

having a tendency prematurely to awaken the sexual instinct should be 

rigorously avoided, goes without saying. 

 

=Mental or Psychic Masturbation.= Some girls and women will abstain 

from handling themselves with their hands (manual masturbation), but 

will practice what we call mental masturbation. That is, they will 

concentrate their minds on the opposite sex, will picture to 

themselves various lascivious scenes, until they feel "satisfied." 

This method is extremely injurious and exhausting and is very likely 

to lead to neurasthenia and a nervous breakdown. You should break 

yourself of it, by all means, if you can. For it is even more 

injurious than the regular habit.
