an f-bi directed me to this daily mail article and well…
Dr Christian Jessen, the British TV doctor who presents Embarrassing Bodies, tonight goes undercover in an alarming documentary, testing various therapies which claim to ‘rid’ people of homosexuality.
In the Channel 4 documentary, Undercover Doctor: Cure Me I’m Gay, openly gay Dr Jessen explores the various controversial methods being deployed in the UK and US to ‘cure’ gay patients.
These include ‘aversion therapy’ in UK and ‘gay rehab’ in the US.
We see Dr Jessen given bottle of ipecac syrup to drink, to make him vomit for hours while looking at pictures of naked men and listening to tapes telling him he is ‘worthless,’ that being gay was evil and that he should want to have sex with women.
This ‘shock therapy’ used to be deployed by doctors for treating homosexuality, ‘since probably the 1920s, 30, 40s and going on well into the 1970s and 80s,’ Dr Jessen tells Mail Online.
Patients were given injections every two hours which would make them vomit and have diarrhea.
The theory was that, afterwards, seeing images of naked men or having homosexual thoughts, would cause a physical reaction.
No patients claimed to be cured by this method.
‘I can’t believe that people like me – a doctor – would actually prescribe this to people like me – gay,’ Dr Jessen told This Morning.
The documentary then shows Dr Jessen visit the southern states of America, known as the Bible Belt.
Some in these deeply religious areas believe that being gay is a state of mind – one that can be treated.
‘The most shocking thing, was that these religious leaders do not believe we were born gay, but that it’s a condition caused by childhood trauma,’ says Dr Jessen in the documentary.
He visited Jerry Mungadze, an ex-church pastor, who claims to be a doctor. However, as Dr Jessen found out, Mungadze has no medical qualifications beyond a minor degree in psychology.
His ‘right brain therapy,’ which costs $250, claims to spot how gay the patient actually is, and why, by getting them to colour in a drawing of a brain.
For $3,000 a month, Smid’s three-month Love In Action programme would ‘take the patient away from anything he deemed gay,’ such as clothes and music.
Smid then talks Dr Jessen through ‘gay rehab’, as if he were still conducting the course, rifling through his suitcase and discarding anything that might ’cause us to feel sensual or sexual.’
Sorting through Dr Jessen’s CDs, Smid claims that music ‘rises up the senses,’ so he should only listen to ‘Christian music.’
Smid says his Mozart CD would be identified as ‘not Christian,’ and his Adele CD would be seen as equally inappropriate, as the singer is popular within the gay community.
Smid himself now admits: ‘I’ve never met a man who experienced a change from homosexual to heterosexual.’
Dr Jessen says that he hopes the documentary raises awareness and helps the gay community feel more assured.
‘I hope young, vulnerable people who perhaps may have considered these therapies will watch the program and realize it’s all nonsense and they have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of,’ he says.
