refuge--in neurosis. Nothing protects her virtue so surely as 

disease." Taking a still wider view of the influence of the 

narrow "civilized" conception of sexual morality on women, Freud 

finds that it is not limited to the production of neurotic 

conditions; it affects the whole intellectual aptitude of women. 

Their education denies them any occupation with sexual problems, 

although such problems are so full of interest to them, for it 

inculcates the ancient prejudice that any curiosity in such 

matters is unwomanly and a proof of wicked inclinations. They are 

thus terrified from thinking, and knowledge is deprived of worth. 

The prohibition to think extends, automatically and inevitably, 

far beyond the sexual sphere. "I do not believe," Freud 

concludes, "that there is any opposition between intellectual 

work and sexual activity such as was supposed by Moebius. I am of 

opinion that the unquestionable fact of the intellectual 

inferiority of so many women is due to the inhibition of thought 

imposed upon them for the purpose of sexual repression."
