F is the oldest of four children, they being 1, 2 and 3 years younger. F says his toilet training was normal. He remembers, however, two incidents in early childhood that he found arousing. The first was when his 4-year-old sister was diapered by a relative for soiling her underwear and was made to sit with her siblings wearing only a diaper. and the second occurred when a brother of his wet the bed and was forced by his mother to wear rubber pants to bed until he ceased. (The latter incident lasted approximately one month -- the brother was 6 and F was 7.)
Also, James, I disagree with you about re-reading you thesis before your defense. As the writer, you should already know what is in there! You may need to brush up on a few key points, as you mentioned, but quite frankly, I didn’t even have time for that – and I didn’t feel like I needed to do that because I knew my work inside and out (as you should, before you complete the writing stage). (I also had no time to re-read the 352 pages of my dissertation before my defense). I kept a list of all of the topics I wanted to read up on before my defense, but I never got around to it, and it didn’t end up changing the outcome — largely because I already KNEW that material even though I was a tad nervous about it all.
