Employing a complex multi-narrative structure, PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS dramatizes case histories of turn-of-the-century sexual deviance, drawn from the pages of Richard von Krafft-Ebing's notorious medical text. Among the cases are a sexually repressed man who discovers an unhealthy appetite for blood; a homosexual man who submits himself to a doctor who promises to 'cure' his condition; and a masochist who hires a pair of corseted prostitutes to enact a most peculiar performance. In the final chapter, a woman who has spent her life suppressing her lesbian desires is hired to tutor a sexually curious young woman. These stories are bound together by the thread of an ambitious doctor who not only studies the patients but uses them as pawns and playthings.

For any lesbian who has ever had a crush on a special female teacher or felt she was in love with a favorite same-sex professor...a very erotic scene is yours if you can wade through the rest of this. Four stars for their romance and lovemaking only

Not my taste.

A fascinating critical examination of Dr. Kraff-Ebing's narrow-minded treatment of so-called abnormal sexual behavior. It suffered from an unimaginative and overtly serious re-telling of some of his case histories. More scenes like the shadow puppets performance of necromancy would have made it more powerful.

eerie and weird
