BBC series: Nuremberg: Nazis On Trail...

Post by L. Kafka » Fri Dec 07, 2012 3:32 pm

There is a apparently only three episodes to this docu-drama series that cover the trials of Speer, Goering, and Hess. In the Hess episode there is what I found to be some moments of humor where an American psychiatrist that diagnosed Hess states that he thinks that he had "abnormal homosexual relations" with Hitler. Hermann Goering adds that Hess suffers from "excessive masturbation." To which I thought 'Before or after he parachuted into Scotland...or just all the time?'

Well done series, but too bad it doesn't have more episodes. This is the first time I've seen this series that came out a few years ago. It recently ran on PBS in my area.

How did Goering know that? Or was he stuck in the next cell and had to put up with the noises?!

This was at the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego in 1967. One guy would whack off after lights out at 2100 and didn't care who knew it. Finally, one of the guys complained to a drill instructor about being distracted by his whacking off.

The drill instructor called the hand job specialist front and center and said that if he "had been with the program" that he wouldn't have any leftover energy for autoeroticism. The drill instructor then called the informer front and center and began to PT (physical training, aka calisthenics) the hell out of both of them.

Hess was an oddball. If Goering knew about his affinity for autoeroticism, my guess is that Hess wasn't shy about it being known.
