Review:

Your choice of sherry greatly affects the finished cocktail so we ummm'd and ahhhh'd between dry oloroso, palo cortado, and amontillado sherries before settling on the slightly richer palo cortado, but any of these sherries produce a delicious cocktail.

History:

Recipe adapted from Grosby Gaige's 1941 Cocktail Guide And Ladies' Companion with instructs, "Shake well with cracked ice and strain into cocktail glass. Sadly Gaige doesn't stipulate what kind of sherry, merely stipulating "¼ part Sherry."

This cocktail takes its name from Richard Freiheer von Krafft-Ebing's 1886 book Psychopathia Sexualis (Psychopathy of Sex). This controversial German book "deals with the psychology of deviant sexual behaviour" and is noted for being the first to use the terms sadism and masochism.
