Diurnal Emissions.--As the disease progresses, the irritation and 

weakness of the organs become so great that an erection and emission 

occur upon the slightest sexual excitement. Mere proximity to a female, 

or the thought of one, will be sufficient to produce a pollution, 

attended by voluptuous sensations. But after a time the organs become 

so diseased and irritable that the slightest mechanical irritation, 

as friction of the clothing, the sitting posture, or riding horseback, 

will produce a discharge which may or may not be attended by sensation 

of any kind. Frequently a burning or more or less painful sensation 

occurs; erection does not take place. Even straining at stool will 

produce the discharge, or violent efforts to retain the feces when there 

is unnatural looseness. 

 

The amount of the discharge may vary from a few drops to one or two 

drams, or even more. The character of the discharge is of considerable 

importance. When it occurs under the circumstances last described, viz., 

without erection or voluptuous sensations, it may be of a true seminal 

character, or it may contain no spermatozoa. This point can be 

determined by the microscope alone. The discharge is the result of 

sexual excitement or irritation, nevertheless, and indicates a most 

deplorable condition of the genital organs. The patient is sometimes 

unnecessarily frightened by it, and often exaggerates the amount of 

the losses, and the symptoms arising from them. However, when a single 

nocturnal emission occasions such detrimental results, what must be 

the effect of repeated discharges occurring several times a day, or 

every time an individual relieves his bowels, urinates, or entertains 

an unvirtuous thought! If the losses were always seminal, the work of 

ruin would soon be complete; fortunately, those discharges which are 

the most frequent are only occasionally of a true seminal character. 

It is not true, however, as has been claimed by some writers, one at 

least, that they are never seminal, as we have proved by repeated 

microscopic examinations. 

 

Cause of Diurnal Emissions.--The causes of these discharges are 

spasmodic action of the muscles involved in ejaculation, which is 

occasioned by local irritation, and pressure upon the seminal vesicles 

by the distended rectum or bladder. They denote a condition of debility 

and irritation which may well occasion grave alarm. 

 

In occasional instances, the internal irritation reaches such a height 

that blood is discharged with the seminal fluid. 

 

Internal Emissions.--As the disease progresses, external discharges 

finally cease, in some cases, or partially so, and the individual is 

encouraged by that circumstance to think that he is recovering. He soon 

discovers his error, however, for he continues to droop even though 

the discharges apparently cease altogether. This seems a mystery until 

some medical friend or a medical work calls his attention to the fact 

that the discharges now occur internally instead of externally, the 

seminal fluid passing back into the bladder and being voided with the
