Abstract

Dr. Robert E. Mueller practiced psychophysical therapy in Los Angeles. He opened a massage therapy private practice in 1979 where he offered a "Release & Reorientation" program. He sometimes incorporated alternative methods into his body therapy practice, and would occasionally integrate various forms of media to be used during sessions by his clientele. The collection consists of nineteen scrapbooks. Each contains images of women or sexual activity between men and women. Scrapbooks occasionally feature gay and lesbian content; however, they predominantly follow a heterosexual and heteronormative framework.

Biographical Note

Dr. Robert E. Mueller practiced psychophysical therapy in Los Angeles starting in 1979. In 1981, he graduated from Golden State University with a Ph.D. in Human Relations. He holds various licenses and credentials in massage therapy, postural integration, and lymph drainage and decongestion, and is a member of professional organizations such as the American Massage Therapy Association, Society for the Scientific Study of Sex, and American Tarot Association. Mueller also intermittently taught advanced massage therapy at Glendale Career College, and instructed and co-published manuscripts on the topic of Tarot spirituality. Mueller opened his massage therapy private practice in 1979. At his practice, Mueller offered a "Release & Reorientation" program, which advertised a "PsychoPhysical massage" custom designed for patients. He sometimes incorporated alternative methods into his body therapy practice, and would occasionally integrate various forms of media.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Robert E. Mueller Collection consists of nineteen scrapbooks. Each contains images of women or sexual activity between men and women. Scrapbooks occasionally feature gay and lesbian content; however, they predominantly follow a heterosexual and heteronormative framework. The images have been cut out from erotic and pornographic magazines and other sources, and appear to derive from the early 1960s through the late 1980s. Mueller's scrapbooks are arranged by subject and divided thematically. Some focus exclusively on particular parts of female anatomy, while others include nude or clothed models posing in a variety of positions. Some scrapbooks contain images of models masturbating, while others include sexual acts involving two or more people.
