- If it is fear that is blocking the homosexual from a sexual relationship with a
woman, then Goldstein and his colleagues
work on a process of "desensitization."
In a relaxed setting the patient is
asked, for instance, to imagine holding
the hand of a woman. Does that give him
any pause. If so, at what point? And
why? And so the sessions go on.
In addition to his "satisfactory" heter-
osexial life, the patient must also report
end to homosexual contacts and impluses
before his treatment can be called a success.
In many cases, Goldstein reports, the
old homosexual fantasies and desires die
with the development of a new heterosexual life. But in other cases, they
To suppress the homosexual urges,
Goldstein and his colleagues in a few
cases use the controversial "aversion
therapy." The patient is shown a slide
designed to arouse his homosexual desires. Moments later he is given an
electric shock, strong enough so that he
feels relief as the slide fades, the shock
stops, and the slide of a woman appears.
The treatment is repeated and repeated,
until the patient, reports the end of his
\ The unit is not concerned solely with
homosexuality. It is carrying on work on
frigidity, impotence, obsessive compulsive neurosis, and agoraphobia (the fear
of open places). And in varying degrees,
parallel work is being done in most major
hospitals in the country.

The Experiment, an excellent new film
from Jaguar Productions, explores the
trauma of a teenager's homosexual
awakening and how he comes to grips
with these inclinations.
Billy Joe lives in one of those southwestern desert hamlets whose population
can be numbered in two digits, where
activity revolves around the local gas
station-cafe-general store. His father,
Herm, is the proprietor of this business
complex, and Billy Joe helps out pumping gas--that is, when he and his buddy,
Gary, aren't sneaking off into the desert
to drink beer swiped from the cafe. The
two also have a secret hideaway, a shack,
and it is here they decide one night to
"experiment" and have a sexual experience together.
It is an intensely emotional experience
for Billy Joe, but Gary is rather indifferent to its implications. Thinking
himself rejected, Billy Joe runs away,
hoping time and distance will settle his
sexual confusion, but in his flight, he is
picked up and used by a salesman, a
motorist and his hitchhiker, and finally,
in Hollywood, meets a jaded rich boy and
experiences his first orgy.
In the interim, Gary is having second
thoughts about his own sexuality and does
not resist when picked up by a tourist.
The casual sex act by itself is meaningless to him, though, and he begins to
realize that his relationship with Billy
Joe can be both emotional and physical.
Billy Joe confronts his homosexuality
and returns to tell his father, who was
aware of the problem all along and was
waiting for his son to discover himself.
The two boys are reunited, poised on the
threshold of a newly found sexual maturity.
