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 linger on. 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 homosexual fantasies. \ 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. Page 19
