Abstract
The sexual deviations are puzzling clinical phenomena which can prove extremely difficult to treat. Various theories have been proposed to account for the development of these conditions. Recently Flor-Henry (1987) reported that sexual deviants demonstrate fronto-temporal left hemispheric deficits as reflected on performance on certain neuropsychological tests. In an attempt to replicate this observation, a group of sexual deviants were compared with a psychologically distressed control group (anxious patients) and a non-psychologically distressed control group (normal subjects). No significant differences emerged when the sexual deviants were compared with either of the control groups on any of the measures employed.
