In Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality, Freud (1986) wrote of a relationship between hysteria and sexuality and commented that hysteria was precipitated by the onset of a real sexual situation. Here, the scores on a measure of hysteria and sexual fantasies of student women who were (n = 93) and were not (n = 26) intercourse active were compared. Women who were intercourse active had higher scores on the PDQ4+ Histrionic scale (Hyler, 1994), p < .0001, and higher scores on Wilson's Total Sexual Fantasies (Wilson, 1988), p < .0001. In contrast, the PDQ4+ Obsessiveness scale (Hyler, 1994) scores of women in the 2 groups did not differ, p = .65. The results provide empirical support for a relationship between hysteria and sexuality.
