August: LSD-sex study

"The Use of L.S.D. 25 (D-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) in the Treatment of the Sexual Perversions" is published in the Canadian Psychiatric Association Journal.

Excerpts:

"A large room was provided, furnished with a comfortable couch, two arm-chairs, table and chair, radiogram -- with a selection of classical, light opera, musical comedy and dance music -- together with books of photographs such as 'The Family of Man.' "

"... it was felt desirable to ensure the efficacy of the drug by giving a large dose. Patients arrived at the department from the ward, having had a light breakfast at 8:00 a.m. and were immediately given 200 microgrammes of L.S.D. 25 in a glass of water."

"We feel that success is possible when (a) the patient is of above average intelligence, and (b) the patient genuinely wishes to be rid of the perversion."
