Format: Hardcover
The bulk of this book (7 chapters) is made up of biographiesand discussions of seven paraphiles. They are (as described by theirchapter titles):
1. Pedophilia in a male with a history of hypothyroidism
2. Masochistic disposition and rejected sex reassignment in a homosexual male with congenital micropenis
3. Sadomasochism in a male with congenital micropenis
4. Autoassassinophilia in a bisexual male with a history of congenital ambiguity of the sex organs
5. Masochism in a 46,XY female with Androgen-Insensitivity Syndrome
6. Bondage and Discipline in 45,X/46,XY female with a history of genital ambiguity and early childhood sex reassignment
7. Bondage and Discipline in a female with congenital vaginal atresia

There is also a chapter on historical thoughts about causes of paraphilias, and a chapter summarising the concept of lovemaps, specifically relating to paraphilias (from Lovemaps, 1986; and Gay, Straight And In-Between, 1988). This book introduces a seventh Grand Paraphilic Stragagem (Paleodigm) not mentioned in those previous works, called Subrogation and Understudyship (later renamed Protectorship and Rescue). A chapter discusses possible causes of paraphilia, going beyond the Opponent Process Theory mentioned in previous works.

Perhaps the greatest omission from this book in my view, given the book's specific focus on vandalized lovemaps (specifically paraphilias in this case) is that only two pages are devoted to the two important topics of prevention and treatment. The two pages of this chapter discuss some thoughts on the causes of the paraphilias in the seven biographies (and thus how those paraphilias could have been prevented), and treatment is left to merely mentioning treatment with the drugs MPA and CPA.

John Money
Vandalized Lovemaps:
Paraphilic Outcomes of Seven Cases in Pediatric Sexology

(Buffalo, NY: Prometheus Books, 1989) 224 pages

Summarizing his theory of lovemaps,
Money reviews earlier theories of the causes of unusual sex-scripts,
sorting out foolish ideas from insights that deserve more research.
Most of this book consists of detailed case studies
of seven individuals with sexual birth-defects,
exploring the sources of their unusual sex-scripts.
This is a rather technical book,
which adds few new elements to the theory of lovemaps or sex-scripts,
but it has the virtue of being shorter than many others.

2 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Bobby Newman on January 1, 2001
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Money takes seven cases of individuals with known physiological conditions. He then generalizes this information to create a theory for paraphilia for the thousands of paraphiles who have no such physical issues. this is over-generalization at its worst. this looks like an attempt to define normal only in terms of very conservative concepts of sexuality. good for historical interest only, but it's not old enough to be history yet.
