psychosexual (OED 1894)

1892 Havelock Ellis _Letter to J. A. Symonds_ 21 Dec. in Sean Brady _John Addington Symonds (1840-1893) and Homosexuality_ (2012) 235  I thought it might be desirable to give 3 or 4 cases of inverted sexuality or psychosexual hermaphroditism in distinguished men with some detail.
