Perversity Think Tank attempts to formulate a philosophical conception of sexual perversion.

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.
Note: Perversity Think Tank was published in 2010. The physical book made use of the print format in a way that did not lend itself to being reproduced digitally. When the book sold out, Supervert updated and revised the text to work in ebook format. Thus there are two slightly different versions of Perversity Think Tank: the print version (which is also the same as the PDF) and the "remix" version for iBooks and Kindle.
