STUDIES IN THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SEX, VOLUME I
The Evolution of Modesty
The Phenomena of Sexual Periodicity
Auto-Erotism
by
HAVELOCK ELLIS
1927
GENERAL PREFACE.
The origin of these _Studies_ dates from many years
back. As a youth I was
faced, as others are, by the problem of sex. Living
partly in an
Australian city where the ways of life were plainly
seen, partly in the
solitude of the bush, I was free both to contemplate and
to meditate many
things. A resolve slowly grew up within me: one main
part of my life-work
should be to make clear the problems of sex.
That was more than twenty years ago. Since then I can
honestly say that in
all that I have done that resolve has never been very
far from my
thoughts. I have always been slowly working up to this
central problem;
and in a book published some three years ago--_Man and
Woman: a Study of
Human Secondary Sexual Characters_--I put forward what
was, in my own
eyes, an introduction to the study of the primary
questions of sexual
psychology.
