seventeen years; but a servant-girl can destroy that long work by 

a word, even by a gesture." 

 

The great part played by servant-girls of the lower class in the 

sexual initiation of the children of the middle class has been 

illustrated in dealing with "The Sexual Impulse in Women" in vol. 

iii, of these _Studies_, and need not now be further discussed. 

I would only here say a word, in passing, on the other side. 

Often as servant-girls take this part, we must not go so far as 

to say that it is the case with the majority. As regards Germany, 

Dr. Alfred Kind has lately put on record his experience: "I have 

_never_, in youth, heard a bad or improper word on 

sex-relationships from a servant-girl, although servant-girls 

followed one another in our house like sunshine and showers in 

April, and there was always a relation of comradeship between us 

children and the servants." As regards England, I can add that my 

own youthful experiences correspond to Dr. Kind's. This is not 

surprising, for one may say that in the ordinary well-conditioned 

girl, though her virtue may not be developed to heroic 

proportions, there is yet usually a natural respect for the 

innocence of children, a natural sexual indifference to them, and 

a natural expectation that the male should take the active part 

when a sexual situation arises.
