She's Kraffty

I have considered a series of stix based on Krafft-Ebing's Psychopathia Sexualis, which is of course the gold standard of outdated psych textbooks, but this one comes from Volume Two of The Encyclopedia of Sexual Behavior by Ellis and Abarbanel, published in 1961. (I don't have Volume One, which is a shame, because that's where the article dedicated to homosexuality is; this comes from "Perversions, Sexual.") I'm sorry that there isn't any mention of lobotomy sex in this volume, because apparently it was noteworthy in that some patients became completely indifferent to sex while others became insatiable. ("Four times a day for six weeks" is a phrase I seem to recall from El-Hai.) I think the last article Walter wrote, which was published posthumously, was about lobotomy sex. The Encyclopedia of Sexual Behavior, by the way, also informs us that "self-fellation appears to be rare and usually occurs in unloved children."
