Logical models of variant sexuality
in: Wilson, Glenn D., ed. Variant sexuality: Research and theory. Johns Hopkins University Press; Baltimore, MD, US, 1987
Abstract:  Glenn Wilson: "Václav Pinkava outlines some observations of he and his Czechoslovakian colleagues that led him to apply the mathematical theory of logical nets to sexual variation. Consistent with other authors in this volume (especially Comfort, Epstein and myself), he believes that distortions of innate and imprinted patterns of behaviour are an important basis of paraphilia and goes on to show how these can be modelled by computer."

Logical Models of Sexual Deviations
International Journal of Man Machine Studies (1971), 3, 351-374

Abstract:  "Argues that the traditional approaches to sexual deviations-biological and psychogenetic-are either too simple, too global, or not in accord with empirical findings. A new theoretical approach is presented which is based on ethology and the theory of automata and which considers deviations as impairments of instinctive behavior. General characteristics of instincts are discussed and viewed as finite automata, and the existence of human as well as subhuman imprinting is noted. A formal model of deviations, based on the structural theory of automata and including both fetishistic and nonfetishistic types, is demonstrated." (APA/PsycINFO)
