Dr. Christian Jessen, pictured here, is unrelated to this scandal but his views on gay conversion therapy in the UK are in the video/podcast below

The Toronto Star reported yesterday that Dr. Melvyn Iscove, 72, was found guilty of sexually abusing two male patients as part of his “treatment” for homosexuality.

The patients spoke to the five-person discipline panel who found that Iscove,

Neither complainant described any emotional or romantic aspects of the sexual activity with Dr. Iscove, and both said that at some point, they thought that the sexual activity was part of the therapy and an attempt to cure them of homosexuality by engaging in the acts, rather than fantasizing about them.”

Homosexuality has not been considered a psychiatric disorder in 40+ years. (Unless you ask our VP, Mike Pence.) Any attempts to “cure” it have been discredited as traumatic. Iscove used in his defense passages from 1950’s psychoanalyst Dr. Edmund Bergler, whose theorizing on homosexuality included the idea that

there are no happy homosexuals.

Iscove also faces a disciplinary hearing by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada related to allegations of

improper conduct in a public men’s washroom.

He has had his license suspended and is subject to a penalty hearing. The Star said,

During a penalty hearing, doctors found to have had sex with a patient automatically lose their license.

The podcast below, has some common sense, professional advice from the openly gay Dr. Christen Jessen who went undercover to uncover gay conversion therapies in the UK.

Listen.
