Necrophilia is a paradoxical perversion. It is often called an "unspeakable" crime, and yet this unspeakableness has not prevented the formulation of veritable clichés of necrophilia: the grave-robbing pervert, the horny morgue attendant, and so on.

It is precisely this gap between silence and stereotype that Necrophilia Variations seeks to mine. Death, desire, and deviance can combine and recombine in any variety of ways, and Necrophilia Variations simply charts some of the possibilities. For example, suppose someone developed a fetish for terrorists or for death-row inmates — is that as much a form of necrophilia as the fetish for dead bodies? Or what new form of morbidity might arise in the heart of a man who decides to spend a night with a prostitute before killing himself? Or how might contemporary technology influence the practice of a timeless abomination? Or, if necrophilia is a sensual pleasure, is it conceivable that someone could derive a sick pleasure through any one of the senses — say, through the ears?
