Sexualna asfyxiofilia (Koczwarizmus)
(Sexual Asphyxiophilia (Koczwarism))
In: Česka a Slovenska Psychiatrie, Vol. 89, No. 4, 1993, pp. 200-208
Language: Czech with English abstract
Abstract:  "DSM-III defines asphyxiophilia as an Atypical Paraphilia (302.90); it is known under different names elsewhere, e.g., as Koczwarism in former Czechoslovakia. The history and frequency of this little investigated, life threatening practice of oxygen deprivation as sexual stimulation, sometimes to orgasm, is offered. Both sexes practice it and it may be a factor in accidental deaths by strangulation, without intent to suicide, when safety devices fail. Diagnostic clues are detailed. It is recommended that asphyxiophilia be considered in forensic cases of death of unknown origin, though the history of this autoerotic practice usually is kept secret by its practitioners, often psychiatric patients. To separate such cases from the categories of suicide or murder, the investigators need to be better informed. A table shows the age (men 9-80 yrs; women 19-68 yrs), number of cases (men over 1,000/yr; women 20+/yr. In men pornography, unusual clothing, pain stimulating, bizarre supports and fetishism were found; in women the first 3 were infrequent and the latter 2 not found. Female prostatic ejaculation is also mentioned." (APA/PsycINFO)

Sexual Asphyxiophilia (Koczwarism) in Women and the Biological Phenomenon of Female Ejaculation
In: Medical Hypotheses, Vol. 42, 1994, pp. 318-322
Abstract:  "Life threatening eroticizing behavior, asphyxiophilia (sexual asphyxia) is practiced in women, as in men, in order to heighten sexual excitement and to achieve orgasm, which is in some women accompanied by expulsions of fluid (ejaculation) from the urethra. The relatively easily achieved orgasm induced by the mechanism of asphyxia is hypothesized to be the common reason for repetitive deviant asphyxiophilic behavior. Moreover, in women of the ejaculatory type (female ejaculators) the desire to induce ejaculatory orgasm by asphyxia may also come into play as this kind of orgasm is usually assessed as sensation of greater delight than orgasm without ejaculation."

Fetishism and Exhibitionism in the Female and Their Relationship to Psychopathy and Kleptomania
In: International Journal of Psychoanalysis, Vol. 52, No. 3, 1971, pp. 297-305
Abstract:  "Confirms previous observations that fetishism exists in women. It is also shown that exhibitionism is possible as a sexual perversion. It is also suggested that kleptomania is derived from fetishism and that there is a close relation between perversion and some psychopathic personalities. In the case presented, kleptomania developed after the fetish became detached from its sexual function. This coincided with severe childhood anxieties which led to complete suppression of masturbation and anhedonism. Kleptomania and the psychopathic behavior in general were the result of acting out in the environment the perverse masturbation fantasies of the phallic phase." (APA/PsycINFO)

Homeovestism: Perverse Forms of Behavior Involving Wearing Clothes of the Same Sex
In: International Journal of Psycho-Analysis, Vol. 53, No. 4, 1972, pp. 471-477
Abstract:  "Describes 2 cases of homeovestism, i.e. perverse form of behavior involving wearing clothes of the same sex. The behavior is closely related to transvestism and fetishism. Similarities and differences among these 3 categories are summarized. The literature on these problems is reviewed. The cases of 2 homeovestites, a 20-yr-old male and a 20-yr-old female, are discussed in detail. The basic trend in both is considered to be the denial of the female genitalia in order to avoid castration anxiety. The female's anxiety was due to the fact that she did not have a penis, the male's anxiety to the fear of losing his and to a pronounced identification with the female." (APA/PsycINFO)

The object in fetishism, homeovestism and transvestism
In: International Journal of Psychoanalysis, Vol. 58, No. 4, 1977, pp. 487-495
Abstract:  "Describes the conditions of fetishism (FTM), homeovestism (HVM), and transvestism (TVM) and the relationship among them. In HVM, the inanimate object represents the penis of the parent of the same sex with whom the patient wishes to identify. In the male, the homeovestite act does not symbolize a sexual relation with the phallic mother, as in the case of FTM, but a homosexual relation with the father, with the goal of incorporating the paternal penis. In contrast, FTM and TVM have heterosexual objects. Narcissism and skin erotism are must greater in HVM and TVM than in FTM. Case vignettes are presented, including examples of how cases diagnosed as FTM were actually TVM with a shift in puberty to HVM." (APA/PsycINFO)

The perversion of fetishism in women
In: Psychoanalytic Quarterly, Vol. 51, No. 3, 1982, pp. 405-425
Abstract:  "Reviews cases of female fetishism reported by several authors (e.g., E. Buxbaum, 1960; R. Dickes, 1963; G. A. Dudley, 1954; and M. Sperling, 1963) and attempts to demonstrate that fetishism as defined by Freud in males also exists among women. Fetishism in women conforms in general to the same unconscious dynamic genetic principles and factors elucidated by Freud in his work on fetishism in men. Freud described fetishism as a defense against castration anxiety arising from the perception of the female genitals. It is suggested that the main difference between male and female fetishism is that, because of developmental factors involving the phallic phase, for women the fetish represents the penis of the father, not of the mother. Clinical material is presented to support these hypotheses." (APA/PsycINFO)

Les fétiches de la phase phallique
(Fetishes of the phallic stage)
In: Revue Française de Psychanalyse, Vol. 47, No. 1, 1983, pp. 425-430
Language: French
Abstract:  "Describes a type of fetishism that does not correspond to the classic definition given by Freud. The fetish is largely homosexual in content and involves an item of distinctly masculine character, such as a military uniform or athletic equipment. It becomes a representation of the father's penis, identifying the fetishist with all that is powerful and masculine. This extends to a fear of castration, in which the denial of the penis-less mother becomes a denial of the female role in sexuality. This phenomenon has also been noted in women, reflected in an overidentification with the masculine figure that leads to a denial of their own female identity. This type of fetishism is considered a sort of transvestism." (APA/PsycINFO)

Shifting preferences in pornography consumption
In: Communication Research, Vol. 13, No. 4, 1986, pp. 560-578
Abstract:  "Male and female students and nonstudents were exposed to one hour of common, nonviolent pornography or to sexually and aggressively innocuous materials in each of six consecutive weeks. Two weeks after this treatment, they were provided with an opportunity to watch videotapes in a private situation. G-rated, R-rated, and X-rated programs were available. Subjects with considerable prior exposure to common, nonviolent pornography showed little interest in common, nonviolent pornography, electing to watch uncommon pornography (bondage, sadomasochism, bestiality) instead. Male nonstudents with prior exposure to common, nonviolent pornography consumed uncommon pornography almost exclusively. Male students exhibited the same pattern, although somewhat less extreme. This consumption preference was also in evidence in females, but was far less pronounced, especially among female students."

The Effect of Erotica Featuring Sadomasochism and Bestiality on Motivated Intermale Aggression
In: Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Vol. 7, No. 1, 1981, pp. 153-159
Abstract:  "Male subjects were provoked by a same-sex peer, exposed to (1) comparatively nonarousing, pleasant erotica (girlie fare); (2) arousing, displeasing, and nonaggressive erotica (bestiality); (3) arousing, displeasing, and aggressive erotica (sadomasochism); (4) not exposed to erotica, and then provided with an opportunity to retaliate against their annoyer. Exposure to arousing, displeasing erotica, regardless of the degree of apparent aggressiveness involved, was found to increase retaliatory aggression relative to non exposure. Presence or absence of aggressive cues in these equally arousing and equally displeasing erotica was of no consequence. Exposure to nonarousing, pleasant erotica, compared to no exposure, had a negligible effect. The aggression facilitating effect of exposure to displeasing, disturbing erotica was explained as the result of annoyance summation."

Publisher: Guilford Publications, New York
Abstract:  From the chapter: "After discussing historical perspectives on the definition of transvestism, this chapter addresses its: diagnostic issues; developmental course; etiology; and epidemiology. Three vignettes are presented to illustrate the phenomenology of transvestic fetishism. The authors conclude that the field is lacking sound etiological research in both the biological and psychosocial arenas."
