CONFESSIONS of a MASOCHIST (Mar, 1964)
Really, this article is kind of boring, you’d be much better entertained reading this fantastic review of Fifty Shades of Gray.
It is interesting to see one of Lucy’s early wood cuts. I think her repressed love/hate relationship with Charlie Brown is really quite obvious here.
CONFESSIONS of a MASOCHIST
An unusually frank and sensitive true story about one woman’s confusion of sex and pain.
By Doris Milward
Mrs. Milward is the Woman Editor of “Sun and Health,” an English naturist magazine.
In Masochism in Modern Man, Theodor Reik proves, step by convincing step, that masochism is, in itself, a sublimation, a flight forward from sadism, and that, having achieved this, one can progress first to social masochism, and then to a kind of spiritual masochism, such as martyrs of many faiths have had. (A sadist gets pleasure from inflicting pain, a masochist gets pleasure from receiving pain.)
NEEDLING BATTLE JITTERS (Jun, 1945)
I just read a somewhat similar article in Wired last month. i09 also had an interesting piece on the history of PTSD this week.
NEEDLING BATTLE JITTERS
by R. A. Montherlant
NARCOSYNTHESIS—medicine’s newest and most effective method of reclaiming from their mental hells the pitiful “combat fatigue” cases.
MEDICINE’S newest and most streamlined method of fighting the battle jitters was perfected during the Tunisian campaign under the nerve-wracking conditions of a combat zone.
In a base hospital at Algiers, where air raids were as much an accepted part of the day’s routine as chow, Army doctors, working under the direction of Lieut. Col. Roy R. Grinker and Captain John P. Speigel, U. S. Army psychiatrists, established the scientific use of hypnosis-producing drugs in the treatment of “combat fatigue” cases.
YOUR COLOR TYPE and how to live with it (Feb, 1950)
I’m really interested to find out how this “graphometer” on page 7 works. At several points the graph seems to go backwards, which is a bit odd.
YOUR COLOR TYPE and how to live with it
Step right up, folks, and select a color to fit your personality. The correct hue will make you sparkle, says Louis Cheskin, top color expert, who offers tips on redecorating your home.
By Clifford B. Hicks
IF YOU ARE emotionally normal, your favorite color likely is a particular shade of blue and your wife feels a strong attraction for magenta-red.
Your small children â€” given a choice â€” select bright-red toys. If you are a farmer, you prefer a great many colors other than grass green, but if you work in a steel mill, grass green likely is one of your favorites.
You may not realize it, but you probably find a strong-blue room depressing, a vivid-yellow room head-splitting, a bright-red room nerve-wracking and a leaf-green room boring.
