Eugen Steinach

Eugen Steinach

Dr Eugen Steinach (1861-1944) a leading Austrian physiologist and pioneer in endocrinology.

Dr. Steinach performed endocrine research that was aimed to revolutionize human life by the use of glandular techniques, for example, experiments with vasectomy operations. Such research is now largely discredited, and Steinach's own belief in it was related to the broader social and cultural views of that time period. Dr Steinach conducted experiments in the transplantation of a male guinea pig's sex glands into a female and vice versa, resulting in the male guinea pig developing some so-called "female" sexual behaviors. This eventually led Steinach to theorize the possibility that the gland's secretions (hormones) might account for homosexuality. In the 1930s, the Freudian theories that early child upbringing could explain such "perversions", replaced Steinach's biological conjectures. Nowadays, with the ongoing moderation and deconstruction of some of Freud's cruder concepts, there is a return to this similar biological approach of the "gay brain" or "gay genes".

Dr. Steinach was a former Director of the Biological Institute of the Viennese Academy of Sciences. He also was appointed the director of Vivarium's Physiology Department where he continued such related research. This position was made possible by the Austrian Zoologist, Hans Przibram, who hired Dr. Steinach. It was at this institution that Steinach's research developed into an idea that the gonad was a double gland and that one section (the puberty gland) produced "physical and psychic secretions" or the bases of sexuality.Steinach developed a theory based on tying off the spermatic cords in order to prevent the production of wasted sperm resulting in an increase of internal secretion. He held the belief that age was connected to the mysterious Leydig cells located in the testes. Steinach named these interstitial cells "puberty glands" - a term still related to his name. The "Steinach operation" or vasoligation, was conducted by Steinach in order to provide a "surgical reactivation" of the male. This operation is also still used today, especially in some specific urinary complications.

It was believed that the so-called "Steinach operation" (vasectomy) could even restore sexual vigor in men, and by verbal testimony by Harry Benjamin, Dr. S. Freud underwent this operation for a possible cancer cure. The Irish poet W B Yeats also had the operation with a view of increasing his vigour, and became known as "the gland old man" of Dublin.

---I. Über den Geschlechtstrieb und den Geschlechtsakt bei Fröschen (Sex Instinct and Sex Act in Frogs). Inclination to the clinging reflex in frogs before and during the season of rut also occurs in animals which had been castrated a few months previously. The secondary sex characteristics therefore pre-exist to some extent with a certain degree of independence of the gonads, but their development and complete maturation are linked to the presence of the sex glands.

--II. Über die physiologische Bedeutung der akzessorischen Geschlechtsdrüsen der Säuger (Physiological Significance of the Accessory Sex Glands of Mammals). Importance of the seminal vesicles and prostate, particularly their secretions, for propagation.

-III. Über den Geschlechtstrieb der vor und nach der Pubertät kastrierten Ratten und über das Schicksal der akzessorischen Geschlechtsdrüsen in Folge der Kastration (Sex Instinct of Rats Castrated before and after Puberty, and the Fate of the Accessory Sex Glands). In mammals (rats), also, the sex instinct pre-exists, that is, the sex instinct occurs to a slight extent in early (infantile) castrates. The seminal vesicles and prostate remain at an infantile stage of development in animals castrated in early life. The enormous growth which they exhibit in maturing normal animals is therefore due to the influence of the gonads.

This contractility rests upon the function of cells in the capillary walls which show a muscle character. It is further shown, for the first time, that the capillaries are furnished with contractile nerve fibres and that the expansion of the capillaries depends upon the nervous system. These characteristics of capillaries are of the utmost significance for the distribution of blood throughout the organism.

* Die Summation einzeln unwirksamer Reize als allgemeine Lebenserscheinung (Integration of Singly Ineffective Stimuli as a Generalized Life Phenomenon), in: Pflügers Archiv, 125: 239, 1908.The capacity to integrate singly ineffective stimuli is not to be considered as a particular attribute of the ganglion cell. This capacity is a generalized life phenomenon which is present in the most diverse substances and developed to an enormous extent.

* Geschlechtstrieb und echt sekundäre Geschlechtsmerkmale als Folge der innersekretorischen Funktion der Keimdrüsen (Sex Instinct and Genuine Secondary Sex Characteristics as a Result of Internal Secretion of the Gonads), in: Zentralblatt für Physiologie, 24: 551, 1910

---I. Präexistente und echt sekundäre Geschlechtsmerkmale (Pre-existent and Genuine Secondary Sex Characteristics). The so-called secondary sex characteristics exist independently of the gonads, but in less pronounced expression; their growth, maturation, and complete development are, however, linked to the gonads.

--II. Über die Entstehung des Umklammerungsreflexes bei Fröschen (Origin of the Clinging Reflex in Frogs). The clinging reflex in frogs depends, not on nerve impulses, but on an internal secretion which is produced in the testicle before the rutting period. This internal secretion acts upon the central nervous system in such a way that the existing centres of inhibition are weakened during the season of rut, or suppressed entirely. Thereby the full expression of the clinging reflex during the period of rut becomes possible.

-III. Entwicklung der vollen Männlichkeit in funktioneller und somatischer Beziehung bei Säugern als Sonderwirkung des inneren Hodensekretes (Development of Complete Functional and Somatic Masculinity in Mammals as a Particular Effect of Internal Secretion of the Testicle). In mammals, too, for example in the rat, the development of somatic and psychic sex characteristics (seminal vesicles, prostate, erotization), is controlled by the internal secretion of the testicle. Castration in early age periods prevents growth and development of sex characteristics. Testicular transplants in such infantile castrates lead to normal physical and psychic development. The production of this physiological testicular hormone takes place in the so-called interstitial tissue (Leydig's cells) and not in seminal canals which serve for the production of spermatozoa.

* Willkürliche Umwandlung von Säugetiermännchen in Tiere mit ausgeprägt weiblichen Geschlechtscharacteren und weiblicher Psyche (Arbitrary Transformation of Male Mammals into Animals with Pronounced Female Sex Characters and Feminine Psyche), in: Pflügers Archiv, 144: 71, 1912.Through transplantation of ovaries into infantile castrated guinea-pigs the female sex characteristics, physical and psychic, are brought to development (feminization). This includes particularly the development of the mammary gland and nipples, milk secretion, willingness to give suck, feminine direction of the sex instinct and skeletal form, hirsute character and type, and deposition of adipose tissue of female type. Simultaneously, male characteristics are extensively inhibited.

* Feminierung von Männchen und Maskulierung von Weibchen (Feminization of Males and Masculization of Females), in: Zentralblatt für Physiologie, 27: 717. 1913.Testicular transplants in infantile spayed female guinea-pigs bring about development of masculine Anlagen (masculization): development of the male organ, masculine sex instinct, skeleton, and pilosity.

* Künstliche und natürliche Zwitterdrüsen und ihre analogen Wirkungen (Artificial and Natural Hermaphrodite Glands and Their Analogous Effects), in: Archiv für Entwicklungsmechanismus, 4, 6: 12, 1920

---I. Die antagonistisch-geschlechtsspezifische Wirkung der Sexualhormone vor und nach der Pubertät (Antagonistic and Sex Specific Effect of Sex Hormone before and after Puberty). Sex hormones are sex-specific, that is, the male hormone bringe the Anlagen of male characteristics to development, the female hormone doing the same for the Anlagen of female characteristics. With this effect upon characteristics of like sex goes an inhibiting (antagonistic) effect on the characteristics of the opposite sex, preventing their development or, when already started, retarding them or causing their involution.

* Histologische Beschaffenheit der Keimdrüse bei homosexuellen Männern (Histological Structure of Gonads of Homosexual Men), in: Archiv für Entwicklungsmechanismus, 46: 29, 1920Examination of the testicles of homosexual men revealed the following: atrophy of spermatic tissue, partial degeneration of the male interstitial cells, presence of large cells differing widely from the preceding and which approach in appearance and structure the female cell types.

* ---, and Kammerer, P., Klima und Mannbarkeit (Climate and Puberty), in: Archiv für Entwicklungsmechanismus, 46: 391, 1920.Maintenance of rats in higher temperatures effects an increase of size of the testicles, microscopically a proliferation of the interstitial cells. As a result the secondary sex characteristics (seminal vesicles, prostate) are greatly enlarged. In female animals there is an increase of cells in the puberty gland.
