Transvestitismus beim Mann
(Male transvestism)
In: Psyche: Zeitschrift für Psychoanalyse und ihre Anwendungen, Vol. 38, No. 9, 1984, pp. 801-816
Language: German
Abstract:  "Discusses transvestism in connection with the treatment of a 25-yr-old male patient. Even though elements of fetishism (perversion) and addiction are discernible, transvestism should be etiologically distinguished from these. The function and meaning of cross-dressing are important. The latter is used to resolve the separation trauma of the symbiotic phase. The transvestite attempts to hold fast the mother within the transvestite act so as to control her. The transference relationship is complicated because of the intense aggression that normally is bound up and isolated within the perverse act." (APA/PsycINFO)

Fetishism, Sadomasochism and Related Behaviours

Publisher: Basil Blackwell, Oxford
Abstract:  From the chapter: "... deals primarily with two forms of statistically unusual but behaviourally related sex behaviour, namely fetishism and sadomasochism / emphasis is placed upon those variables which might provide clues as to why a proportion of males ... take so fervently to sexual patterns which appear inappropriate to the propagation of the species."

Role of trauma in foot and shoe fetishism: 6 year old girl
In: International Review of Psychoanalysis, Vol. 11, No. 1, 1984, pp. 79-91
Notes:  Reprinted in Lubbe, Trevor (ed.): "The Borderline Psychotic Child" (2000) as "A case of foot and shoe fetishism in a 6-year-old girl".
Abstract:  "Presents the case study of a 6-yr-old girl with a foot and shoe fetish who was psychotic at first presentation to the clinic and believed herself to be a boy. In the course of her therapy, it emerged and was confirmed that she had been the victim of terrifying, life-threatening assaults by her father who had died before she was 4 yrs old. It seemed probable that she had an incestuous relationship with him. The defensive nature of S's psychotic illness and masculine identity is explored, and the possibility that her fetishism represented a reenactment of sexual trauma is considered. Treatment freed S from her presenting symptoms and enabled her to be moved from a special school to a school for normal children." (APA/PsycINFO)

Abstract:  From the jacket: "This book draws together the findings of psychological research into sexual diversity and assesses recent progress in our understanding of sexual 'deviance' and dysfunction.
As a ... summary of research into the topic, this book will be of particular interest to clinical psychologists and psychiatrists, and of practical value to all concerned with the study and treatment of those whose sexual behaviour causes problems for themselves or society."

Paraphilias: Phenomenology and classification
In: American Journal of Psychotherapy, Vol. 38, No. 2, 1984, pp. 164-179
Abstract:  "Discusses over 30 paraphilias (erotosexual conditions of being dependent on an unusual or unacceptable stimulus in order to initiate arousal and orgasm) and subdivides these paraphilias into 6 categories on the basis of their phenomenological dynamics: (1) sacrificial paraphilias, in which one or both partners must atone for the wicked act through penance or sacrifice; (2) predatory paraphilias, including rape; (3) mercantile paraphilias, in which the illusion of prostitution is created; (4) fetish paraphilias; (5) eligibility paraphilias, in which the partner must meet some physical or social criterion; and (6) allurement paraphilias, in which some more or less extraneous ritual (such as exhibitionism or making erotic telephone calls) replaces genital intercourse. The author introduces the concept of the 'lovemap,' which is usually manifested as the innate desire for standard heterosexual intercourse. However, when the normal heterosexual play and sexual rehearsal of childhood are hampered by too much prohibition or punishment, the standard heterosexual lovemap does not develop properly in the brain, and paraphilias may develop. For male paraphiliacs, especially those with hyperorgasmia, the most effective treatment may include counseling therapy as well as injections of medroxyprogesterone acetate." (APA/PsycINFO)

Transferencia nas perversoes
(Perversion transference)
In: Revista Brasileira de Psicanalise, Vol. 18, No. 2, 1984, pp. 197-206
Language: Portuguese
Abstract:  "Defines perversion as a sexual relationship in which the other is not regarded as a whole person. Freud considered 'perversion' as part of what passes for the normal constitution. Although Freud only mentioned fetishism, all perversions include disavowal, which should be distinguished from neurotic repression. Objects of perversion are transitional objects, and castration fear is the etiology of perversion. The psychoanalytic profession's particular vulnerability to manipulation by perverse analysands, due to some analysts' own perverse tendencies, is discussed. The clinical example of a perverted patient's attempts to involve his female analyst in his perverse sexual games illustrates this theme. The ritualistic aspect of perversion is also examined."

Sexual Arousal to Nonsexual Violence and Sadomasochistic Themes Among Rapists and Non-Sex-Offenders
In: Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, Vol. 52, No. 4, 1984, pp. 651-657
Abstract:  "Twenty heterosexual rapists, 10 non-sex-offender patients from the same maximum security psychiatric institution, and 10 men with low socioeconomic status recruited from the local community were presented with audiotaped narrations while their penile tumescence was measured. The story categories were as follows: female victim/partner (neutral situation, consenting sex, rape, nonsexual violence, consenting bondage and spanking) and male victim/partner (neutral situation, consenting sex, rape, and nonsexual violence). There were no differences between the two non-sex-offender groups, and they were combined. Rapists showed more sexual arousal to rape depictions and less to consenting sex stories than the control subjects. As predicted, rapists were sexually aroused by stories involving nonsexual violence with female but not male victims. Surprisingly, there were no differences between rapists and control subjects in their responsiveness to the spanking and bondage stories. It was concluded that the amount of violence in the rape descriptions is critical in differentiating rapists from non-sex-offenders."

Classifying Sexual Disorders: The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatrical Association
In: Journal of Homosexuality, Vol. 9, No. 4, 1984, pp. 9-28
Abstract:  "The objectivity of the classification of sexual disorders in the third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-III) of the American Psychiatric Association is explored via a critical examination of (1) the replacement of homosexuality per se by ego-dystonic homosexuality, (2) DSM's working concept of a mental disorder, (3) the notion of a paraphilia, (4) components of sexual identity, and (5) the literature on variant sexual behaviors. It is argued that (a) the same criteria that led to the removal of homosexuality per se as a mental disorder require the removal of all the paraphilias per se, (b) there is no empirical warrant to justify their continued inclusion, and (c) while there is legitimacy for a generalized ego-dystonic category, such ego-dystonias are only incidentally sexual. It is suggested that the present classification of sexual disorders is merely the codification of social mores."

The Social Constituents of Sadomasochism
In: Social Problems, Vol. 31, No. 4, 1984, pp. 379-389
Abstract:  "Traditional conceptions of sadomasochism are misleading. This is because they are not based on close examination of what the majority of SM participants actually do and how they interpret their own behaviors. Over a period of eight years, we interviewed a variety of SM participants and observed their behavior in many different settings. We found that sadomasochism was constituted by five social features: dominance and submission, role playing, consensuality, a sexual context, and mutual definition. These features formed the basis for the interpretation of behaviors and experiences as SM by participants. This focus permits a sociological model of the phenomena which avoids the limitations of more traditional conceptions."
