and Intimate Details regarding Sex Life -
Hermaphrodism (the blending of both the male
and female characteristics in one body)
although very rare, has long been known and
recognized, even by the ancients, references
being found in the old Greek mythology, and
instances on record where they were used as
idols in religious worship.
But, as yet, no reliable scientific
explanation has been made for these unusual
cases. Theories have been advanced, varying
from superstitious beliefs that the Creator
endowed certain individuals with
supernatural power by incorporating both the
male and female in the same body, to
birthmark, in which it is supposed that the
mother, or both parents, at the time of the
child's conception and during pregnancy, had
intensely desired a boy, or a girl, as the
case may be; and nature
intending otherwise, the result was
hermaphrodite. The latter theory could
readily be applied to the case of Jerry-Ann.
At the time of conception, the mother was
nearly forty years of age, and she realizing
this world probably be the last child she
would bear, and the fact that all of her
other children had been boys, there is no
doubt that the desire to have a daughter was
very strong in her mind.
However, leading authorities discourage the
idea of birthmark, so you have the privilege
of accepting it or formulate your own theory
to explain this odd condition. The
duo-sexuality of Jerry-Ann was noticed at
birth, but because of sensitivity on the
mother's part, the secret was carefully
guarded by the family for a number of
years. Jerry-Ann grew up apparently as an
ordinary normal girl. But around the age of
twelve (the adolescent period) it was
noticed the male genitals were becoming
quite prominent (although these organs did
not function, then nor any time later).
There was a noticeable deepening of the
voice, and the right side was growing out of
proportion with the other, tending to become
masculine, while the left reside developing
as a normal female.
The case was finally placed in the hands of
physicians and caused widespread interest
and discussion in medical circles. Finally
it was decided nothing could be done to
remedy this strange condition.
Jerry-Ann was pronounced a true
hermaphrodite and had to remain that was the
remainder of his, or her, natural life.
