Autoerotic entertainment

The medical literature is a source of endless fascination. As well as charting the sure-but-steady progress of medical science, it also keeps tabs on the more unusual aspects of human behaviour.

PubMed is the world’s medical research database, and I’ve found endless ways of entertaining myself with this seemingly starched and functional research tool.

One of those ways is to search using the keyword ‘autoerotic‘.

The diversity of human sexuality is awe-inspiring, and this simple search will bring some of the most unusual aspects of the sexual rainbow into stark relief.

Where else could you read about ‘Aqua-eroticum: an unusual autoerotic fatality in a lake involving a home-made diving apparatus’?

That last one is from the Journal of Forensic Sciences, which, if ever you get a chance to read it, is a bi-monthly litany of the most obscure, surprising and compelling aspects of the human character – delivered in a completely deadpan style.

To quote Groucho Marx “Yesterday I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas I don’t know”.

  1. Oh, right… AUTOeroticism? Yeah, my old high school girlfriend and I practiced that particular form of gratification in the back seat of her Dad’s ’68 Dodge Coronet when we could borrow some older college friend’s dorm room while they were out of town as we were locals and lived at home.
    Of course late nights in the middle of the winter required we fill the tank to keep the engine running and the heater on, but otherwise it was pretty AUTOerotic.
