We've wondered if these fake sexual case histories were ever used in research papers, or caused anyone to believe there were actually real people out there as found in the plethora of these type of books that were churned out in the 1960s-70s.
Robert Silverberg composed about a dozen of these as L.T. Woodward, MD, covering topics such as the virgin wife, sex techniques in marriage, sex in the army, sex in college, lesbians etc.
Sex Fiend covers sex crimes, often sex that leads to murder, such as the chapter called “Teenage Thrill Killers” & “The Peeping Tom Murders.” Nymphomania, lesbiana & psycho doctors are also found.
Basically, this is a collection of sort stories around a theme, framed as case histories lacking academic methodology, clinical ethics, theory & all the other stuff one finds in true case history studies.
But so what? This is entertainment, a breezy cheap paperback that shows publishers, then & now, will print anything for profit
