Sigmund FreudSigmund FreudOut of these findings grew a new science, psychoanalysis, a path of psychology, as a new method of treatment of neurosis. I had to pay handily for this bit of good luck. People did not believe in my facts and thought my theories unsavory. Resistance was strong and unrelenting. In the end, I succeeded in leading meetings of an international psychoanalytic association, but the struggle is not yet over.
Look -- No Ring!

V. Youth in Rebellion23Petting and the Campus (1925) One fact is evident, that whether or not they pet, they hesitate to have anyone believe that they do not. It is distinctly the mores of the times to be considered as ardently sought after, and as not too priggish to respond. As one girl said, I dont particularly care to be kissed by some of the fellows I know, but Id let them do it any time rather than let them think I wouldnt dare. That petting should lead to actual illicit relations between the petters was not advised nor countenanced among the girls with whom I discussed it. They drew the line quite sharply. That it often did so lead, they admitted, but they were not ready to allow that there were any more of such affairs than there had always been.

27If You Knew Susie (1926) I have got a sweetie known as Susie. In the words of Shakespeare shes a wow. Though all of you may know her too Id like to shout right now.
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl! Although she gets sassy, Ill say shes classy. You can tell I love this lassie. We went riding, she didnt fall. Back to the city Im the one that had to walk. If you knew Susie, like I know Susie, Oh! Oh! What a girl!
