Was Hitler really a raging coprophiliac?

I started reading a book on the sex lifes of famous leaders throughout history, and it had one chapter devoted to Adolph Hitlers sex life.

The author of the book accused Hitler of taking part in scatological sex. To be more precise, Hitler liked to crapped on and pissed on during sex.

Does anyone know if this is true, or is it just rumers and propoganda?

The story seems to have originated with a report made by the U.S. Office of Strategic Studies from a 1943 interview with Otto Strasser, brother of the late Nazi leader Gregor Strasser. Otto Strasser told them about Hitler's sexual relationship with Hitler's half niece Angela Raubal, known as "Geli" (daughter of Hitler's half sister Angela), who lived in Hitler's flat in Obersalzberg while attending university. Strasser said Geli had confessed the nature of their sexual relationship:

Quote:
"Hitler made [Geli] undress . . . he would then lie down on the floor. Then she would have to squat over his face, where he could examine her at close range and this made him very excited. When the excitement reached its peak, he demanded that she urinate on him and this gave him sexual pleasure. Geli said that the whole performance was extremely disgusting to her and . . . it gave her no gratification."
But of course, this is not first hand testimony, but hearsay. Geli herself committed suicide in Hitler's flat in Obersalzberg in 1931, although some believe she was murdered.

And Otto Strasser had motive to slander Hitler -- his brother Gregor had been Hitler's rival for control of the Nazi Party (Strasser was a committed socialist and led the party's left wing). Gregor was arrested and shot by the Gestapo in the infamous of "Night of the Long Knives" operation in June 1934.

It is after Geliís death that Hitler turned to mass slaughter. This research project will examine Hitlerís sado - masochistic relationship with his niece, and draw parallels between this relationship and the sadistic cruelty he inflicted upon others during the Third Reich.
This from your "Durban" website.

Somehow it smacks of either a prejudiced view which influenced the project, or perhaps just predjudiced views in general.

I mean, Hitler killed millions of Jews because his niece killed herself? Pulleeze.

Walloon. Sorry. I know that you weren't implying anything by your links. You do great research. I was just incensed by the stupidity of the lline of reasoning.

DDG Thanks for your concern. Actually, while the little clems are at the beach with their mom, we are divorced. But we are civilized and share kids. The only way to be.

That, of course, doesn't obviate your need to smack me with a newspaper. I kinda liked it, actually.
