The sexually salacious cases originally presented in Richard von Krafft-Ebing's notorious, turn-of-the-century medical text come to the screen in a complicated collection of erotic stories strung together by the curious tale of a manipulative doctor who may not always have his patient's best interests in mind. From the story of a sexually repressed man who develops a troubling taste for human blood to the tale of a homosexual seeking to "cure" his condition, a masochist who enlists the aid of two corseted prostitutes in making his wildest dreams come true, and a lesbian who finds her sexual urges too powerful to resist when hired to tutor a sexually adventurous female student, the controversial case-studies that stunned Victorian England in the early years of the 1900s are recreated for the camera almost a century later to show just how little has changed in the realm of human sexuality.
