Summary of aids in spinal cord drainage


The Swiss doctor Samuel (also Simon)

Auguste André David Tissot (1728-1796) (fig

left) wrote that in 1774 book "The masturbation,

or Treatise on the Diseases of

of self-defilement. ”Tissot acted

mainly as Doctor in Lausanne. 1780 to

In 1783 he took over the management of the

Pavia University Hospital. Its 1760

published publication "L’Onanisme" in which he

claimed that masturbation diseases

produce, experienced numerous editions and

After the considerably increased sixth original edition from the

French re-translated (1774). First edition 1758. History of a

metaphysical and scientific aberration.

Preliminary remark on the structure of the bookes: That book has two counts,

each beginning with 1: preface and content 1-16 and parts 1-208. The

Parts and sections are also from Tissot in 140 paragraphs


From the third part, “The Cure,” the following jumped out to me on page 94

Lines catch your eye that say something about the content of the bookreveal it:

There are some diseases in which one can benefit from the beneficial effects of the

Medicine is almost certain. But those do not belong in this class

what the consequences of debauchery in love and even more

from self-defilement (onanism) are exhaustions.

And all that you can get from them when they have risen to a certain extent

are, can predict is terrible. Hippocrates has it

Sick announced death. Mr. Boerhaave (Dutch

Medic, 1668-1738) says, “This is a pathetic disease. I

I've seen it often, but I've never been able to cure it. "

Preface Top

I noticed the shortcomings of the Latin Originas of this little work

already with its preparation. In the preface of this kind

I apologized about it, and showed the reasons for mine

Justification to. I was still more vividly concerned about these defects,

after it was printed and i found it incompatible, as I

a French translation held against it, which I had to look through

had asked.


Besides many comments that I found to be added, I also had to

remedying the considerable errors to order and the sections,

which only contained the first features of what I wanted to say

were almost incapable of making comprehensible, a cheap extension


So many improvements made the work almost new and much longer. The

Difficulty doing this venture in a living language

and all the inconvenience this entails,

did not escape my understanding. Just one motive, one as powerful as

the one i found in the utility of this venture if they

well done (that is, no doubt, better as I did it) for

could be the human race, it was that led me to this

Could bring resolution and it is, in fact, the only one myself

has brought about. It is sad to deal with the vices of one's peers

employ; looking at them offends and humiliates. But it's cute too

to help that one can contribute something to their frequent inspection

diminish and alleviate the suffering that results from it.

But what made this work even more tedious, as when i put them in

the Latin language would have written that is the embarrassment to pictures

express their

I should have withdrawn from this respect owed to the wellbeing

and this attitude, which I can count on as a fame, has given me the

Made work less annoying, as she would have been if i

would not have had that attitude. In the meantime I still have her with me

Difficulty found occupied. But I venture to do so much

assure you that I have not lacked any caution, this one

Work to give all decency in the expressions of which I am able


But there are cliffs that are inseparable from matter. How should you

avoid? Should I keep silent about such important items? No,

certainly not! The books of the scriptures, the Fathers of the Church, almost all of them

wrote in living languages ​​and the spiritual writers

did not believe that they were involved in the crimes of fornication

Silence would have to be ignored because you cannot speak without words

could denote. I believed that I had to follow their example;

and I will dare to say with St. Augustine: "If that,

what I have written annoys any unchaste person, they complain

their own shame and not the words I have used

have to explain my thoughts about procreation. "

I hope one


chaste and discreet reader will tell me the expressions that I use

I was forced to use it, easily to hold good. I want to

what this holy man says, still add this that I am at

virtuous and enlightened people who know how deep the whole

World is in trouble, and know their shameful life, thanks and applause

I hope and that you, even if you do not have my remarks,

but at least my company will be praised.

Neither do I have the moral part as in the first edition

touched. This happened for the reason that Horace (Roman poet,

65-8 BC) it says: Quod medicorum est promittunt medici. (Medical

Achievement is the doctors, craft is the craftsman's profession.

Because I only thought about the diseases caused by the

Self-defilement (onanism), and not from the crime of

Proven enough of the same, since I prove that it is an act by which

to become a suicide? If you know people, understand

one without effort that it is easier to get through the fear of one

Part One - The Coincidences (The Diseases) Top

Section 1: Illustrations taken from the writings of the doctors

§ 1

Hippocrates, the oldest and most precise of the observers, already has those from the

Abuse of lust for love arising diseases among men of the

Consumption of the spinal cord described. This disease, he says, arises

from the mark of the backbone. It attacks young married couples and those who are voluptuous

People. They have no plumage, and although they eat well, they will

but lean and wasted. it seems to them as whether they see ants



Crouch your head down over your entire spine. As often as she stools

go or want to pass the water, they miss a lot

a very fluid semen moisture. They are not suitable for the work of procreation

and in their dreams they often have one with the exact hug

Woman's room to do. The walks, especially on the uncomfortable ones

Because of they become out of breath, render them powerless and cause them

Heaviness in the head and ringing in the ears. Finally a heated fever ends

her days. I shall speak of this kind of fever in another place.

Some doctors have another disease for the same cause

attributed, which Hippocrates describes elsewhere, and with

bears some resemblance to the first mentioned disease. That's what they call them

second spinal cord feeding of Hippocrates. But keeping the

Forces whose Hippocrates are particularly explicit in this disease

commemorates, seems to me to be convincing evidence that this and that

previous illness cannot result from any one cause, it seems

rather to be a kind of limb flow (gout?).

Celsus says these lusts (Aulus Cornelius Celsus, medical writer, 25

B.C. until 50 AD) in his excellent one booke from the preservation of the

Health, harm weak people at any time and their more often

Repetition makes the strong weak.

You can't read anything more terrible as the figure that gives us

Aretaeus (Greek physician, 80-130 AD) on the evils that result from a

too frequent emptying of the semen. The

young people, he says, get the prestige and the dilapidated nature

old people


They become pale, effeminate, sleepy, indolent, cowardly, stupid and sometimes even

silly (stupid). They walk crooked and stooped. Her legs

don't want to wear them anymore. They hate everything. You are to everything

clumsy and many of them are paralyzed. He bets in another place

the lust for love among the number of the six causes of paralysis.

Galenus (Greek doctor and anatomist, 129-216 AD) has the same cause

to diseases of the brain and nerves, as well as to a whole

Seeing exhaustion giving an opportunity and telling it in another place

he that a man from a violent illness is not yet perfect

had recovered the same night that he had his wife's conjugal duty

has done, has died.

The elder Pliny (Roman scholar, AD 23-79) tells us that

Cornelius Gallus (Roman politician and poet, 70-26 BC), former

Magistrate of Rome and Thirus Aetherius, a Roman knight, during the

Have died during cohabitation.

“The stomach becomes disordered,” says Aethius, “the whole body becomes

weak, you get a pale color, you get lean, you

dried up, the eyes collapsed. "

§ 2

These testimonies of the venerable ancients are innovated by a bunch of people

confirmed. Sanctorius (Santorio Santorio, Latinized Sanctorius, Italian

Medic, 1561-1636), who with the greatest care all causes that on


Our body has been examined, noticed that this is the stomach

weakens, spoils digestion, prevents imperceptible exhalation,

the inhibition of which always results in annoying consequences, heat in the

Liver and kidneys that give rise to the stone that gives rise to the formation of the stone

natural warmth diminishes and common, either loss or

but the stupidity? of the face.

Lomm, in his beautiful explanations of the passages I have cited

of Celsus, supports the testimony of this writer by his own

Comments: “The frequent evacuation of the semen make the body

limp, dry up (him), weaken, debilitate and bring a lot

Diseases as Stroke flows (stroke), sleep addiction, the

falling addiction (epilepsy), numbness, loss of face, tremors,

Paralysis, cramps and the painful types of gout. "

It is not without horror that one reads the description that Tolpins gave us

famous mayor and doctor of Amsterdamm, left: “Don't

only the marrow of the spine is emaciated, but it becomes

also the whole body and mind likewise weak and exhausted and

such a person comes to a miserable end. ”Samuel Verspretius

was infested with a river, there at first on the back of the head and

An extremely sharp moisture accumulated on the neck, which afterwards spread over

He suffered pain that he hardly looked like anyone any more

and fell into a creeping fever that consumed him, but


not so fast as he wished. His condition was so miserable that he

more as once brought about death before it appeared to him

To wrest from torture.

“Nothing, says Zypius, a former famous physician to Löwen, weakens you like that

very and shorten life so much, as the frequent eating of semen. "

From this cause Blankard has simple ejaculations and consumption

and dropsy are seen to arise. Muys knew someone

who, still in his prime, of his own free will, at the foot of the fire

he just got his debauchery in love

has ascribed.

In the writings of the Imperial Academy of Natural Scientists, a

known for fifty-nine years, the three weeks after, as he one

young woman had married, suddenly became blind and after the course of

died four months.


"The too much distraction of the spirits of life," says Schellhammer,

“Weakens the stomach, takes away the desire to eat and there is none

When food takes place, the movement of the heart diminishes. All

Parts wear out and you even get the falling addiction. ”We know

not whether the spirits and the semen moisture are the same thing

are, but observations have us, as will be seen below,

teaches that these two liquids are very similar to each other

have and that the loss of one or the other diseases


Herr Hofmann was the most annoyed at the waste of semen

Coincidences occur seen: “After many nocturnal involuntary

Defilements (pollutions), not only the forces are lost, the body

gets skinny and the face goes pale, but it also takes that

Memory. A constant chill attacks all limbs and the sharpness

the eyes are lost. The voice grows thicker (it loses hers

male-deep sound). The whole body gradually perishes.

The sleep troubled by heavy dreams refreshes and replaces them

No forces and you have pain that is similar to what you have

feels when one is battered everywhere. "

In a medical opinion for a young person who

by self-defilement among other bad coincidences, one

has drawn utter weakness of the eyes, says this very same one

Hofmann: "I've seen many examples that people


even in the prime of life, that is, when the body is in full strength,

“Even to have seen two black catfish (blindness) emerging from the

A young person who is in his fifteenth year of the

complained, a lot of whitish matter accumulated. Though him that

Food tasted good, it was skinny as a skeleton and as soon as it was

had eaten, he was drunk.

This very author kept another observation for us,

of which he was an eyewitness, and those, in my opinion, here

also deserves a job. A young person of 18 years who more often

had stopped with a maid, suddenly fainted, taking him

all limbs trembled. The face was red, the pulse was very weak. In the

Time of one hour was brought

Fear of the heart. After eight days, he lost his right arm

paralyzed and swollen and he got a pain in his elbow

got worse with each attack. After the evil a long time

got worse and worse regardless of the fact that you have many antidotes

used, it was finally restored by Hoffmann.

Mr. Borhave portrays these illnesses with those strength and

Accuracy found in all of his descriptions: “the

excessive loss of semen produces fatigue, weakness, indolence of the

Limbs, twitching, leanness, the drying up of the juices, pain in

the membrane of the brain, she makes her senses; and especially the face;

dull, gives rise to emaciation of the spinal cord, to

Insensitivity and to various diseases related to the

be connected to the previous. "

The perceptions that this great man gave his listeners

communicated, as he explained to them these aphorisms, which related to the

referring to various means of evacuations also earn here

to be quoted: “I knew a patient whose illness

started with feeling tired and weak in the whole body,

especially around the loins. He got one on that too

Twitching of tendons and periodic cramps. He was getting leaner and

hung only on skin and bones. He felt


also a pain in the meninges. The patients take care of it

To call pain a dry heat, which inwardly is in the noblest

Sharing burns incessantly. "

I also knew a youth who consumed the spinal cord

would have. He was very well educated. One had him often

warned not to indulge too much in his desires, but he did.

Shortly before his death he became so shapeless that the fleshly exaltation,

over the pointed appendages of the loin (apothyles spinosa lumborum)

can be seen, had completely sagged. The brain itself seems to be at

such cases to be consumed. Such patients really get whole

stupid. They get so stiff that I can't do anythingas such a great awkwardness

of the body from some other cause. Self

the eyes are so dull that it is difficult to see.

In the first edition of his experiments, Herr von Senac mentioned the dangerous ones

Consequences of the self-defilement presented and the victims of this

shameful act of all the infirmities of the most impotent old age

already announced in the prime of the years. One can see in the following

Editions of his work read the causes, why these and other

several places have been suppressed.

When Professor Ludwig describes the bad coincidences that arise
