Abstract:  "Tested the theoretical and clinical assumption that females do not exist in the sadomasochistic (SM) subculture, or exist in such small numbers as to make analysis impossible, through responses from questionnaires placed in 2 publications that cater to sadomasochists and additional questionnaires mailed to advertisers whose ads appeared in a sadomasochistic contact magazine. Of 182 individuals who responded, 130 were males, and 52 were females, indicating a meaningful female presence in the subculture (...)"

Perverse Symptombildungen als Chiffren im diagnostischen Prozess
(Sexual perversions as diagnostic clues)
In: Nervenarzt, Vol. 56, No. 7, 1985, pp. 373-378
Language: German
Abstract:  "Discusses 7 types of sexual perversions (exhibitionism before women or children, pedophilia, sadism involving women or children, voyeurism, obsene phone calls, fetishism) and hypothesizes that they represent significant clues to underying personality disorders and psychoses. The authors studied and treated 86 sexual perverts, half of whom were under mandatory referral to psychological counseling and two-thirds of whom had a police record for sexual offenses. The Ss' deviations are considered in the light of a corresponding psychopathy: demonstrations of manhood and sexual potency; escape from mature genitality; expressions of rage and hatred; outbreaks of hostility; filling of inner emptiness, and fulfillment of vicarious wishes. Two case histories illustrate the complexity of the function of the perversions." (APA/PsycINFO)

Wrapped to death: Unusual autoerotic death
In: The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology, Vol. 6, No. 2, 1985, pp. 151-152
Abstract:  "Despite the large population of New Orleans, including many homosexuals and transsexuals, there have been relatively few cases of autoerotic deaths. The case reported here is an interesting one as it includes a bizarre form of autoerotic behavior from the standpoint of the method used. There have been no deaths reported in the literature in which the victim died as a result of jeopardizing himself by enclosing his body into plastic with an airway out of his "cocoon" in the form of a snorkel tube. He was engaged in masturbation when he apparently lost his mouth piece or airway. He attempted to use a knife to cut himself out."

Behovet for spænding
Publisher: Juvelen, Bagsværd
Language: DK
Abstract:  "The Danish author points out the need for fictitious excitement in masochism. He uses the term 'fictitious' because he means that masochists scarcely are looking for real danger. The active sadomasochist brings the masochist into a border district where dangerous thing easily could happen. But the sadist guides the M safely through. The excitement, the uncertainty, the fright and the joy of terror is essential aspects. Maybe there can be constructed illutions like a scenic railway, in circus or in trick films. It feels and looks very dangerous, but it is in reality quite safe." (Svein Skeid)

Observing the Erotic Imagination
Publisher: Yale University Press, New Haven, Conn.
Abstract:  From the jacket: "In this book, Dr. Stoller suggests that similar elements are present in the erotic fantasies of both perverse and non-perverse people; we all construct 'a script, the principal purpose of which is to undo childhood traumas, conflicts, and frustrations by converting these earlier painful experiences to present (fantasized) triumphs.' To build these daydreams, says Stoller, we make use of mystery, risk-taking, revenge, and dehumanizing, or fetishizing. In the fantasies of almost everyone, hostility - a desire to humiliate - is a manifest or latent presence."

Fetishism - Etiology and Treatment: A Review from Multiple Perspectives
In: Comprehensive Psychiatry, Vol. 26, No. 3, 1985, pp. 249-257
Abstract:  "Asserts that fetishism, defined as the obligate need for inanimate or part objects for sexual arousal, may be viewed from multiple perspectives. Sociocultural, biological, psychodynamic, and behavioral issues may all contribute to its etiology. Although psychoanalytic investigations offer much data to explain fetishism, behavioral treatments have been primarily reported as a treatment approach. Problems remain, however, in understanding the natural clinical course, etiology, and best treatment for this paraphilia. Associated behaviors have been reported to include other impulsive symptoms such as kleptomania and the coexistence of borderline personality organizations. In a minority of cases, temporal-lobe dysfunction may account for the fetish and thus provide a rationale for treatment with anticonvulsant medication." (APA/PsycINFO)
