PervScan Is Dead — Long Live Perversity Think Tank
Supervert, the creator of PervScan, is pleased to announce the publication of a new book titled Perversity Think Tank.
Perversity Think Tank attempts to formulate a philosophical conception of sexual perversion. It emerges directly from PervScan in the sense that the web site has served as a sort of research laboratory — a place to examine real-world examples of deviant behavior, to experiment with concepts, and to workshop them with the thousands of visitors who have left comments on the site.
To be clear, Perversity Think Tank is not a “blook” or a “book of the blog” or a compendium of entries from PervScan. It is an entirely new work that considers a variety of perversions drawn from literature, art, individual experience, and sometimes PervScan. If you have followed the site, you may recognize a few favorites such as the German cannibal who ate his own penis. However, these case histories have been subsumed into an entirely new conceptual framework never explicity offered on PervScan itself.
At any rate, there is no need to sell you on Perversity Think Tank. You can freely download a pdf of the entire book from supervert.com. You may also choose to purchase the printed version.
Because Perversity Think Tank is a culminating effort — and because, to be honest, PervScan has left its author in a jaded, seen-it-all and heard-it-all place — PervScan will cease operation effective immediately. The site will remain online, comments will remain open, but no further cases will be posted.
Perversion, however, remains an integral part of Supervert’s vision. For those of you who delight in the daily churn of deviance provided by PervScan, you might want to subscribe to Supervert’s Twitter feed, which regularly offers telegraphic versions of the same type of material previously featured on the site.
All of you are also invited to keep supervert.com on the radar. Supervert has a master plan to produce six books. Extraterrestrial Sex Fetish was the first. Necrophilia Variations was the second. Perversity Think Tank is the third. Supervert plans to concentrate its efforts on the three books to come — a plan that, roughly speaking, ought to take another ten or fifteen years (yes, yes, man plans and God laughs) — and then…
Well, who knows? A plan that the poet Charles Baudelaire once announced to a friend comes to mind:
I intend to write a novel in which my hero will be a scoundrel, I mean a real scoundrel, a murderer, a thief, an incendiary and a buccaneer, and who will conclude my book with the following little speech: “And in the soft shade of this tree planted by my own hands, surrounded by a loving family, by children that adore me, a wife that dotes on me, I savor amidst peace and tranquility the fruits of my crimes.”
A curse on the spammers who have wasted countless hours of precious time and a tremendous thank you to everyone who has made PervScan such a stimulating forum over the last six and a half years. RIP PervScan, 2003-2010.
