"Gay Lie Detector" Doc in Scandal

"Gay Lie Detector" Doc in Scandal

" >

Dr. Ondrej Trojan, a Czech doctor involved with the controversial "erotic lie detector" tests used to assess gay applicants for asylum, was fined for offering to masturbate in front of a patient.

Trojan, a Prague-based doctor and sex therapist, administers "penile plethysmograph" tests on behalf of the Czech government to determine the veracity of claims from applicants seeking asylum on the basis of sexual orientation. The European Union's human rights agency recently criticized the practice, but the Czech government claims no one has been subjected to the tests since early this year.

According to ABC News, "In the meantime, Dr. Trojan is also involved in another scandal. A former patient claims that he offered to masturbate in front of her while she was under his treatment, and she says that she intends to produce video recordings as evidence.

"Trojan insists that he was merely applying a method known as 'demonstration therapy,' which even he admits is 'controversial,'" reports ABC News. "Although the method is not considered a criminal offence, the Czech medical association slapped Trojan with a fine of 20,000 Czech koruna (around EUR800 or $1,100)."
