urine. An examination of the urine reveals the presence of cloudy matter 

appearing much like mucus, or a whitish sediment. A microscopic 

examination shows this matter to be composed largely of zoosperms, 

which decides its origin. 

 

An Important Caution.--It is necessary, however, to caution the reader 

not to pronounce every whitish sediment or flocculent matter found in 

the urine to be a seminal discharge, for the great majority are of a 

different character. They are, most frequently, simply mucus or 

phosphates from the bladder. Seminal fluid cannot be distinguished from 

mucus by any other than a careful microscopic examination. A microscope 

of good quality and capable of magnifying at least one hundred and fifty 

diameters is required, together with considerable skill in the operator. 

Quacks have done an immense amount of harm by frightening patients into 

the belief that they were suffering from discharges of this kind when 

there was, in fact, nothing more than a copious deposit of phosphates, 

which is not at all infrequent in nervous people, especially after 

eating. 

 

When the condition described does really exist, however, the patient 

cannot make too much haste to put himself under the care of a competent 

physician for treatment. If there is even a reasonable suspicion that 

it may exist, he should have his urine carefully examined by one 

competent to criticize it intelligently. 

 

By many authors, the term spermatorrhoea is confined entirely to this 

stage of the disease. 

 

It is said that the forcible interruption of ejaculation has been the 

cause of this unfortunate condition in many cases. Such a proceeding 

is certainly very hazardous. 

 

One more caution should be offered; viz., that the occasional presence 

of spermatozoa in the urine is not a proof of the existence of internal 

emissions, as a few zoosperms may be left in the urethra after a 

voluntary or nocturnal emission, and thus find their way into the urine 

as it is discharged from the bladder. 

 

Impotence.--In the progress of the disease a point is finally reached 

when the victim not only loses all desire for the natural exercise of 

the sexual function, but when such an act becomes impossible. This 

condition may have been reached even before all of the preceding 

symptoms have been developed. Ultimately it becomes impossible to 

longer practice the abominable vice itself, on account of the great 

degeneration and relaxation of the organs. The approach of this 

condition is indicated by increasing loss of erectile power, which is 

at first only temporary, but afterward becomes permanent. Still the 

involuntary discharges continue, and the victim sees himself gradually 

sinking lower and lower into the pit which his own hands have dug. The 

misery of his condition is unimaginable; manhood lost, body a wreck, 

and death staring him in the face. 

 

This is a brief sketch of the local effects of the horrid vice of 

self-abuse. The description has not been at all overdrawn. We have yet 

to consider the general effects, some of which have already been
