Studies in the Psychology of Sex, Volume II presents studies that explore the psychology of sex by addressing topics ranging from erotic symbolism and the mechanism of detumescence to the psychic state in pregnancy. Eonism and sex in relation to society are also discussed. Divided into three parts, this volume first deals with erotic symbolism, focusing on erotic fetishism such as foot-fetishism and shoe-fetishism, and scatalogic symbolism. The reader is then introduced to the mechanism and object of detumescence; the constituents of semen; and the aptitude for detumescence. Erogenous zones and erection and mucous emission in women are also considered. The final section is devoted to the psychic state in pregnancy and pays particular attention to the relationship of maternal and sexual emotion; conception and loss of virginity; the pervading effects of pregnancy; the longings of pregnant women; and the significance of pregnancy. This book will be of interest to physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, criminologists, and educators.
