"We are all hysterics, since Charcot, that grand priest of hysterics, that breeder of chamber hysterics, maintains in his model establishment the Salpêtrière at great expense a number of nervous women among whom he inoculates madness and of whom he makes demoniacs in no time. One needs to be very ordinary, very common, very reasonable to not be classed among hysterics." --"Une femme" (1882) by Guy de Maupassant

"In France, the subject was taken up by Charcot In France and Magnan, the first important result of their investigation of sexual inversion being published, in 1882, in the Archives de Neurologie. Paul Sérieux, in his "Les Anomalies de l'instinct Sexuel/' published in Paris in 1888, made valuable contributions to our knowledge of the subject; which is further enriched by those of Lacassagne, of Brouardel and Legludic, in Paris, and of Tarnowsky in St. Petersburg"--Human Sexuality: A Medico-Literary Treatise on the History and Pathology of the Sex Instinct for the Use of Physicians and Jurists (1906) by Joseph Richardson Parke
