about

It was a good start...

In 1886, the German psychiatrist Dr. von Krafft-Ebing published a ground-breaking book of forensic case-studies of sexual deviancy, Psychopathia Sexualis. The premise was that not all sexual deviancy had a criminal aspect; mental health was a factor.  This new scientific approach aided further research and eased social stigma, but it neglected the human aspect of the situations.

The book, though somewhat edited, is still used by physicians and judges today.

Here are six stories that explore the humans behind the cases.
