12. _Bashfulness_ is not infrequently dependent upon this cause. It 

would be far from right to say that every person who is excessively 

modest or timid is a masturbator; but there is a certain timorousness 

which seems to arise from a sense of shame or fear of discovery that 

many victims of this vice exhibit, and which may be distinguished from 

natural modesty by a little experience. One very common mode of 

manifestation of this timidity is the inability to look a superior, 

or any person who is esteemed pure, in the eye. If spoken to, instead 

of looking directly at the person to whom he addresses an answer, the 

masturbator looks to one side, or lets his eyes fall upon the ground, 

seemingly conscious that the eye is a wonderful tell-tale of the secrets 

of the mind. 

 

13. _Unnatural boldness_, in marked contrast with the preceding sign, 

is manifested by a certain class of victims. It can be as easily 

distinguished, however, as unnatural timidity. The individual seems 

to have not the slightest appreciation of propriety. He commits openly 

the most uncouth acts, if he does not manifest the most indecent 

unchastity of manner. When spoken to, he stares rudely at the person 

addressing him, often with a very unpleasant leer upon his countenance. 

In some few cases there seems to be a curious combination of conditions. 

While mentally fearful, timid, and hesitating, the individual finds 

himself, upon addressing a person, staring at him in the most ungainly 

manner. He is conscious of his ill manners, but is powerless to control 

himself. This sign is one which could hardly be of use to any except 

a very close observer, however, as few can read upon the countenance 

the operations of the mind. 

 

14. _Mock piety_--or perhaps we should more properly designate it as 

mistaken piety--is another peculiar manifestation of the effects of 

this vicious practice. The victim is observed to become transformed, 

by degrees, from a romping, laughing child, full of hilarity and frolic, 

to a sober and very sedate little--Christian, the friends think, and 

they are highly gratified with the piety of the child. Little do they 

suspect the real cause of the solemn face; not the slightest suspicion 

have they of the foul orgies practiced by the little sinner. By the 

aid of friends he may soon add hypocrisy to his other crimes, and find 

in assumed devotion a ready pretense for seeking solitude. Parents will 

do well to investigate the origin of this kind of religion in their 

children. 

 

15. _Easily frightened_ children are abundant among young masturbators, 

though all easily frightened persons are not vicious. It is certain, 

however, that the vice greatly exaggerates natural fear, and creates 

an unnatural apprehensiveness. The victim's mind is constantly filled 

with vague forebodings of evil. He often looks behind him, looks into 

all the closets, peeps under the bed, and is constantly expressing fears 

of impending evil. Such movements are the result of a diseased 

imagination, and they may justly give rise to suspicion. 

 

16. _Confusion of ideas_ is another characteristic of the devotee of
