It should not be forgotten that the secondary sexual parts of women, bosom, hips, waist and legs, exert a normal influence upon the sexuality of men; it not infrequently happening that, at the beginning of the sexual life, the female charms of person become in greater or less degree associated with certain articles of dress. This may account for the fact that to most men the attired woman is always more pleasing than the naked; and sexuality more highly and readily influenced by the half concealed than the fully revealed charms.

Moll mentions a case where a patient could not perform the sexual act with a completely naked woman; and in the same place, of a homosexualst who was subject to the same dress fetichism. One of the most interesting cases, however, in this connection is that taken from Roubaud's "Traité de l'impuissance."
