spring fever

havelock ellis investigated the idea that animals are not the only form of life that is invigorated in the spring

“according to chinese medicine it is the spring that awakens human passions and the early greeks believed that spring and summer are the times of greatest wantoness. the writer Nipho felt that women were more lustful in spring and summer, while for men it was in winter that they felt the most passionate. he believed men found extremes of temperature unfavourable to their masculinity. “

“it is highly probable that the tendency of piles to become more troublesome in the warmer months is due to increased sexual activity.  and episodes of madness are also believed to surge in spring. admissions to london lunatic asylums during the years 1893 to 1897 and to paris infirmaries from 1886 to 1888 show a pronounced curve during this season.”

“many years ago Sir Chrichton-Brown stated that a manifestation of the sexual stimulus of spring is to be found in the large number of novels that are read during that period. the promptings of the sexual instinct also bring an increased volume of readers to the reference library”

really? so that’s why woeful is so often concerned about the behaviour of his library patrons…..
