Jonas claimed to be indifferent, as he was to the men who pressed themselves against him on crowded streetcars. Obscene graffiti gave him knowledge of anatomy, which improved when he gathered in a cellar with some other boys to watch a girl on a swing show herself naked under her skirt. He had a few brushes with homosexuality. Because his work deals so frequently but often obliquely with sex, this has invited speculation about von Sternberg's sexuality. Superficially, he was almost obsessively heterosexual.

Keywords:   streetcars, anatomy, graffiti, homosexuality, speculation
