Sorry, no etymologies found.
In this case a young man, a merchant, in a good position, sought to come in contact with women defecating; and with this object would seek to conceal himself in closets; the excretal odor was pleasurable to him, but was not essential to gratification, and the sight of the nates was also exciting and at the same time not essential to gratification; the act of defecation appears, however, to have been regarded as essential.
The book's preoccupation with excretal matter and other bodily fluids reaches worrisome proportions too.
