Dream Life in a Case of Transvestitism with Particular Attention to the Problem of Latent Homosexuality: Ben Karpman. J. Nerv. and Ment. Disease, CVI, 1947, pp. 292–337.

Kenneth Colby

The partial study of a thirty-seven-year-old male transvestite is presented. Extensive comments accompany a detailed history and many dreams, reported during an analysis of fifty sessions which was discontinued by the disappearance of the patient. The transvestitism appeared as a catalyst in achieving masturbatory gratification. The perversion served as a homosexual variation which 'helped the patient to maintain the fiction of heterosexuality though the man's trends are homosexual'. Eighty percent of the dreams reported by the patient concerned transvestitism and homosexuality.
