The article reports on a medical case of a 23-year-old male plumber who was referred for having a condition called fetishism in which treatment by aversion conditioning is considered. He complained about having an uncontrollable urge to collect pictures of clad females. His earliest memories of sexual awareness were said to be unreliable and sexual subjects were never mentioned at his home. He was given a subcutaneous injection of apomorphine for days and was asked to report any feeling of nausea he might experience.
