Measurement of sexual arousal in several paraphilias: The effects of stimulus modality, instructional set and stimulus content on the objective
In: Behaviour Research and Therapy, Vol. 19, No. 1, 1981, pp. 25-33
Abstract:  "Determined the effects of instructional set (become aroused or suppress arousal), stimulus modality (videotape, audiotape, slides, free fantasy), and deviant or nondeviant (i.e., paraphilic or nonparaphilic) stimulus content on sexual arousal (measured by penile plethysmograph) of 6 different groups of paraphilics - pedophiles, rapists, exhibitionists, homosexuals, sado-masochists, and fetishists. Results from 48 males (ages 16-52 yrs) show significant main effects of instructional set and stimulus modality (videotape was more arousing), as well as several complex interactions of diagnostic group with the other independent variables."

Comparison of transvestism in Australia and America
In: Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol. 10, No. 3, 1981, pp. 269-279
Abstract:  "Obtained questionnaire data on gender identity, sexual orientation, cross-dressing behavior, fetishism, and bondage from 136 American (mean age 49 yrs) and 86 Australian (mean age 38 yrs) self-designated transvestites who reported a period of fetishism to women's clothes at some stage of development. Characteristics of transvestism were similar: All were male; almost half first cross-dressed in prepuberty and were well-established by late adolescence; intense fetishism was usually experienced during adolescence but waned in later years; in almost a quarter of Ss fetishism ceased, although the desire to cross-dress continued; in many, transvestism was associated with fantasies of bondage, usually of Ss bound while cross-dressed; and sexual orientation was predominantly or exclusively heterosexual in most Ss. Ss were categorized into 2 groups. Group 1, termed nuclear transvestites, were satisfied with cross-dressing. Group 2, termed marginal transvestites, desired feminization by hormone ingestion or by surgical intervention. Marginal compared to nuclear transvestites reported stronger feminine gender identity and a stronger interest in the homosexual direction. Differences appeared to be present from childhood."

(Obsessions, rites and fetishes)
In: Confrontations Psychiatriques, Vol. 20, 1981, pp. 145-161
Language: French
Abstract:  "Discusses the similarities between obsessional behavior and perverse fetishism. In both cases, the rites of the patient are repetitions that serve 2 purposes: They fulfill feelings of narcissistic megalomania that sustain the rhythmic activity, and they eroticize the temporal segments that represent its support. Immobilized as a fetish object, the obsessive patient's time follows a circular movement." (APA/PsycINFO)

Loss of reality in perversions - with special reference to fetishism
In: Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Vol. 29, No. 3, 1981, pp. 511-534
Abstract:  "Examines some aspects of the 'perverse solution' that implies that, compared to the neurotic, the pervert attempts to 'negotiate' his/her conflicts in a specific manner; this gives way to a certain way of approaching reality. The fundamental role played by idealization in the transmutation of reality with which it is implicitly associated is underscored." (APA/PsycINFO)

A comparison of treated and untreated male cross-dressers
In: Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol. 10, No. 6, 1981, pp. 515-528
Abstract:  "In an interview study of 70 male members of cross-dressing clubs, multiple comparisons between treated and untreated subjects showed that the two groups are more similar than dissimilar. The only areas of comparison in which the treated group significantly differed from the untreated group were in fantasizing themselves as females while masturbating, having ever engaged in heterosexual intercourse while cross-dressed, currently preferring both heterosexual intercourse and homosexual behavior while cross-dressed, and having experienced more adverse consequences from cross-dressing. Further, where comparisons are possible, results are similar to those found in prior studies. All of the subjects were male and the average age of onset is prior to 10 years, with virtually all subjects first cross-dressing if not in childhood then by middle adolescence. There is a trend toward a more asexual nature to the cross-dressing during late adult life. Cross-dressing is infrequently associated with sadomasochism and not at all with exhibitionism. Rates of unipolar depression and alcoholism were increased in this sample. The results do not support a significant positive association between cross-dressing and obsessive-compulsive neurosis. The present study confirms previous findings that cross-dressing lacks a familial component either with respect to cross-dressing itself or in association with another disorder."

D'une autre difficulte de la psychanalyse: note sur le fétichisme
(Another difficulty for psychoanalysis: A note on fetishes)
In: Revue Française de Psychanalyse, Vol. 45, No. 6, 1981, pp. 1369-1374
Language: French
Abstract:  "Following a review of Freud's theory of the development of fetishes, a review of more recent psychoanalytic thinkers is undertaken to expand on the conceptualization of the development of fetishes. An example of a fetish for garters is utilized to demonstrate the different processes possible in the development of fetishes." (APA/PsycINFO)

Sex differences in sexual fantasy patterns
In: Personality and Individual Differences, Vol. 2, No. 4, 1981, pp. 343-346
Abstract:  "A detailed sexual fantasy questionnaire was completed by 90 Londoners stratified by sex and social class. Information was also collected concerning sexual behavior, libido, and satisfaction. Factor analysis reveals 4 main types of fantasy: (1) Exploratory (e.g., group sex, promiscuity, homosexuality); (2) Intimate (e.g., kissing, oral sex, outdoor love); (3) Impersonal (e.g., watching others, fetishism, using objects for stimulation); and (4) Sadomasochistic (e.g., whipping or spanking, being forced). The 4 types of fantasy were positively correlated and all were more commonly reported by men, although women were almost as high on the Intimate factor. Women were also more likely to be passive or receptive in their fantasies, and men active. All fantasies were associated with high libido as indicated by self-rated sex drive and orgasm frequency, especially for women. In general, reports of many fantasies went with satisfaction in women but with dissatisfaction in men. This finding is explained in terms of the higher average level of libido in men than women, with the consequent difficulty experienced by men in acting out their desires." (APA/PsycINFO)

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."
