When I studied psychoanalysis at college, I drew Wilhelm Reich as my term paper topic. Research showed that he championed the public health benefits of orgasms. Further, he built a box to hold this special energy and cure people of ailments. He was convicted of fraud. His mental status at his trial was questionable. The box was just a container. It was very strange. I was appalled that everyone else had respectable analysts to research. My professor told me many luminaries at Columbia University believed in these boxes. My mom told me something similar was at Bethel. Another post may have a book about it at Bethel. Does anyone know of this? My info is sketchy. I believe we are talking about the 1930s or 1940s.
It is very weird.
