Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing, c. 1886 - Valentine Greeting Card
Image from Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing's 1886 tome Psychopathia Sexualis: eine Klinisch-Forensische Studie. The book, first published in 1886 (and translated from German into English in 1892), features 200 case studies to help physicians, psychiatrists and judges know more about fetishism, sadism, masochism (terms the author coined) homosexuality, nymphomania, necrophilia, pederasty, coprophilia, bestiality, transvestism, exhibitionism and incest. Before Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing’s work, all fields of sexuality were branded as “perversions”.
Now named, these “deviant sexual behaviours” could be better studied and discussed. Science was now in control of those unnatural urges.
