Perversity Think Tank attempts to formulate a philosophical conception of sexual perversion. In this it is the black mirror of one of the most famous texts in the history of philosophy. Plato's Symposium sought to answer a simple question: What is love? Perversity Think Tank begins from an equally simple but darker place: What is perversity?

Necrophilia, pedophilia, bestiality, feederism, voyeurism, fetishism — how is it possible to abstract a single category of sexual behavior from so many unusual and often sordid proclivities? What does a flasher or a groper have in common with, say, the willing "victim" who undertook with a cannibal to cook and eat his own penis?

Perversity Think Tank dissects a wealth of examples drawn from literature, art, individual experience, and real-world incidents reported on the blog PervScan.com. However, far from being a "book of the blog," Perversity Think Tank utilizes PervScan the way Freud did his case histories. It serves as a research laboratory for the entirely new vision of perversion presented in the book.

And whereas a blog is typically improvisational in tone, like a lab note, Perversity Think Tank is a taut, deeply considered analysis. Like Supervert's previous works, it makes full use of an arsenal of techniques — non-linearity, juxataposition, erasure — derived from vanguard aesthetics. The result is not only a novel approach to perversion but a new sort of work that is simultaneously philosophy, literature, and fuck knows.
