P1: GNN Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment [saj] PP791-sebu-461980 April 6, 2003 14:19 Style ﬁle version Nov 28th, 2002 ° C Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 15, No. 3, July 2003 ( 2003) The article by Laws (2001) regarding olfactory aversion and its mechanism of action represents an excellent summary of this useful technique. We heartily agree with many of its recommendations and conclusions, especially about the usefulness of homework sessions, the active participation of the client, the need for in vivo conditioning to continue under the client’s control long after treatment ends, and the importance of combining conditioning techniques with cognitive methods. However, Dr Laws seems determined to criticize assisted covert sensi- tization (ACS; Maletzky, 1991, pp. 80–84), when in fact it appears he employs this technique in his own laboratory. For example, he pairs noxious stimuli with “free fantasies” of deviant sexual behavior (Laws, 2001). If these are generic fantasies, he is correct; however, it appears these are story lines that the client himself produces about his own deviant sexual behavior. It is difﬁcult to under- stand how this differs from ACS, regardless of when the noxious stimulus is introduced.
