On Growing Up in the Orgone Box


In January, we posted about an SF Weekly interview, equal parts fascinating and disturbing, with a man who wrote a memoir about his sexual experiences with dolphins and other animals.

That man, Michael Brenner, has written another memoir, this one about his childhood in a family of Reichians—followers of Wilhelm Reich’s beliefs that orgasms were the key to all health problems and that a black box could cure any illness by harnessing “orgone energy.”

SF Weekly conducted a second interview with Brenner, and, sadly and unsurprisingly, it’s just as fascinating/disturbing as the first one.
