Attention, gays. Dr. Melvyn Iscove has found a cure for homosexuality: having gay sex with Dr. Melvyn Iscove!
The long-time Toronto psychiatrist known for administering gay conversion therapy has been found guilty of sexually abusing two of his male patients.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario discipline committee recently found that the 72-year-old, who believed that homosexuality is a disorder that can “be overcome,” had engaged in oral and anal sex with some of his male patients during therapy sessions.
The doctor would also allegedly engage in mutual masturbation with the patients and tell them that engaging in such acts would allow them to stop fantasizing about big ol’ dicks, according to the report.
Iscove’s license was suspended pending a penalty hearing after he was found to have performed these acts in the 1990s and early 2000s, according to the testimonies of two patients, now in their 40s.
One patient saw the doctor in his 20s to treat his depression and anxiety associated with “fears he was gay.” After he was allegedly asked by Iscove to describe the sexual fantasies he had about the two of them, the doctor allegedly told the patient “you may touch me if you like,” and proceeded to remove his pants. These sexual encounters occurred at least 10 times during therapy sessions.
Another claimed to see Iscove when he was 18 for depression and anxiety. Although the patient said he identified as heterosexual at the time, Iscove kept penetrating him with questions about his dreams that related to “homosexual feelings,” then claimed that any heterosexual fantasies he had were “a way of denying his homosexuality.”
The patient and Iscove began engaging in sexual acts in 2007 — acts that, according to the committee:
“Patient B firmly believed that Dr. Iscove was attempting to ‘cure’ his homosexuality.”
Iscove has also been accused of “improper conduct in a public men’s washroom,” according to the committee, as well as attempting to sell a juicer and other personal items to a patient.
The psychiatrist denies the allegations and will most likely appeal the decision.
Most of the evolved world has not considered homosexuality a disease since the World Health Organization removed it from the international classification of diseases in the early 1990s. It should also be mentioned that Ontario, where Iscove practiced, banned the controversial therapy in 2015.
That said, we don’t want anyone to feel like they can’t get help if they need it; so, we hope Dr. Iscove finds the BEST gay conversion therapy for his insatiable perversions.
Maybe Mike Pence could recommend a more effective technique?
