David Gwyn Jeffreys was a friend of Norman Douglas as well as Sext Kopf and C.A. Tripp. I have excerpts that have been printed out from the tapes he made on a trip he made to pederastic resort. They are rather shocking. The copies are available in Archive for Sexology.

My good friend C. A. Tripp suggested that Peter Jeffreys, the eminent tutor of royalty and aristocrats, put on tape at the end of the day the experiences that he had in the notorious sex tourist resort. At that lovely scenic spot with water falls in the mountains of the Philippines, at Pagsanjan in Laguna Province, Peter Jeffreys was accompanied on this trip by Sext Kopf, the danish aristocrat and former diplomat. Alfred Kinsey claimed that Sext Kopf had sex with more males than any other who ever lived. Both of the tourists recorded on forty tapes at the end of each day, their experiences that usually involved underage males, some as young as eight. Kinsey did not identify Sext Kopf because he was still alive. Obviously, Sext Kopf was not the anonymous man that Kinsey cited, who began writing a journal in 1917, because Kopf was born about 1914.

When Tripp died a couple of years ago, a friend of mine, an eminent sexologist, whom I had introduced to Tripp, secured copies of thirty of the forty tapes. I hired a German, whose English was not perfect, to transcribe some of the more sexually shocking episodes of their jaunt and I hereby present the unedited excerpts that he made from Jeffreys' recordings. Copies of all the forty tapes were secured by the eminent sexologist Earwin Haeberle from the estate of Sext Kopf, who died a couple of years ago in Palermo. Haeberle had these tapes examined to find out that they were all still very audible, but he has not yet listened to them or had them transcribed. They reside along with much other material, including what he says was the fabulous pornographic collection of Sext Kopf, in the Hirschfeld-Haeberle Archive in Berlin. I am taking this opportunity to alert the medical and scientific community to the extraordinary nature of these disks that Tripp had been clever enough to get his friends to make and then preserve.

Zip archive of the summaries can be downloaded here.


Here is the description of the place from a travel book. (as pdf)

Title: Who’s who in the world. (1980-1981) 5th ed. Article: entry for David Gwyn Jeffreys


Below is an e-mail from Erwin Haeberle about Jeffreys and Norman Douglas.



I'm taking the liberty to post the following correspondence to and from Erwin Haeberle, whose fabulous website, maintained by the University of Berlin, from which he is a retired full professor, gets 7 - 8 million hits per month. In this email, Haeberle attempts to run down the elusive David Jeffreys. By the way, my uncle Will wrote a very campy introduction to a work by Jeffreys' friend, Norman Douglas' _Birds and Beasts in the Greek Anthology_, and interestingly, Douglas wrote an introduction to Harold Acton's _The Bourbons of Naples_. C.A. Tripp had Jeffreys and Sext Kopf, a Danish aristocrat and part time diplomat, whom Kinsey claimed had sex with more males than any other person ever, both each make tape recordings describing their adventures with boy prostitutes over a ten day or two week tour they took together at the notorious (famous) Pagsanjan Falls resort in the Philippines. Tripp's tapes were acquired by Bruce Rind, and I paid a young German to transcribe the highlights of the exploits by Sext Kopf from those tapes. Haeberle acquired Sext Kopf's libraries and archives, which also contained copies of the tapes by Kopf and Jeffreys, and that's why he's trying to identify Jefferys. What I know comes from Tripp and is baked up by tape recordings that Lewis Gannet made of our three way conversations while I was down in Nyack, NY at Tripp's house, and we were working on the _Intimate World of Abraham Lincoln_, to the second edition of which Gannet and I wrote an introduction. In his usual vivid manner, Tripp portrayed Jeffreys to us in great detail. Jeffreys was an educator as well as a high up member of British intelligence, and was was rather close to Lord Lewis Mountbatten. He had helped tutor Mountbatten's protege Prince Phillip while he was still a boy, and though Jeffreys' never came on to his tutees, he told Tripp that the young Prince was very affectionate. Now, the most interesting story that Tripp recounted about Jeffreys was that, while he was in war ravaged occupied Germany, he picked up an orphaned urchin, called "Little Hans," whom he took back to England when he returned and educated, so successfully, especially in art and the classics, that when they decided which university to put him in, they choose Cambridge over Oxford because Cambridge was so known for science and math, which he had not been particularly educated in theretofore, that Cambridge had far more to teach him than Oxford, which specialized in classics, art, and literature. Little Hans rose to become head of the Atomic Energy Commission in Italy. The precis that the young German transcribed for me from Sext Kopf's tape, though it has a number of minor translation errors, is so shocking that I don't dare publish it on my website, and I could well imagine that Jeffreys' tape is just as shocking, because Kopf described a number of boys that he had exploited sexually every day. Tapes are available in Haeberle's archive in Berlin, but I don't think he has yet them described or summarized, and I have not offered him the summary I have. Pagsanjan Falls resort was the most famous international resort for boy prostitutes from the end of World War 2 until the Philippines shut it down, and then Thailand took its place.



Dear Bill,
here is another piece of the puzzle.
Perhaps you can find the Who's Who of 1978 or 1980 and copy the information for me.
Good luck to both of us!

Dear Professor Haeberle,

Frank Turner forwarded your email to me, the research services librarian for the Beinecke Library. I hope I can be of some assistance.

To discover something about the biography of David Gwyn Jeffreys, I read through some of the correspondence between him and Douglas in the archive. There is a very large number of letters from Douglas to Jeffreys -- perhaps one or two hundred -- more than I could read in its entirety. What I did read suggested that they had a close friendship that revolved largely around visits they paid each other in Capri, Italy. The letters reveal few intimate details, though they are familiar in tone. In many of them, Douglas asks to hear more details about Jeffreys' visits to various people in Italy, but the details never actually appear in the letters -- it appears they spoke about those things in person.

I did not see many concrete details about Jeffrey's life. The letters dated during the war are addressed to "Captain David Jeffreys." He had an operation in May, 1945, during which time Douglas addressed postcards to him at: Kingsley Hall, Warbleton, Heathfield, Sussex. By September of 1945 Jeffreys had already departed for Capri and was supplying Douglas with news of several men of Douglas' acquaintance (possibly domestic servants?) who had stayed in Italy during the war. Their correspondence continued until shortly before Douglas' death.

I could not locate any further information about David Gwyn Jeffreys in our administrative files. He does appear to have been given a brief biography in the following references (we do not own copies of these books at the Beinecke, unfortunately):

Jeffreys, David Gwyn (1919-)

Who's Who in the World. Fourth edition, 1978-1979. Wilmette, IL: Marquis Who's Who, 1978.

Who's Who in the World. Fifth edition, 1980-1981. Wilmette, IL:Marquis Who's Who, 1980.

Please let me know if I can be of other assistance. Best of luck in your research.

Quoting Erwin Haeberle <haeberlee@web.de>:

Dear Mr. Turner,

since I do not know the name and address of the right archivist, I trust you will delegate my inquiry to the appropriate person. I myself was a student of Norman Holmes Pearson's over 40 years ago and worked at Beinecke on the papers of Thornton Wilder (later I donated my book on Wilder to Beinecke). Anyway, today I hope you can help me find out more about David Jeffreys, a friend of Norman Douglas'. I know that, may years ago, Jeffreys sent material to a professor or rare book archivist at Yale by the name of Fritz Liebert. However, I do not much more about Jeffreys, and I hope you can provide me with some additional details about his biography.

I do have in my possession 40 audiotapes made by Jeffreys, whom I call Dr. A. on my web site: http://www2.hu-berlin.de/sexology/TELE/sexology/GESUND/ARCHIV/july_1999_-_1.HTM

Needless to say, the tapes are unique documents and of great interest to sexual science. However, in order to interpret them properly, we need to know more about the author, and in this respect we are almost completely ignorant. I hope that Beinecke will be able to shed some light on the biography of Jeffreys who must have been a fascinating person.

Thanking you in advance for your trouble, I remain with great memories of Yale and Beinecke Yours very sincerely,

Sehr geehrter Herr Haeberle

Im Jahre 1946 blieb Douglas ein Woche bei Jan Greenlees (ein Freund von ihm) in Rom. Beide fuhren dann zusammen nach Neapel zu David Jeffreys, der dort Vize Konsul war...ob Freund oder Patensohn weiss ich nicht...Patensohn eher nicht, habe auch noch nie etwas darüber gelesen...Jeffreys hatte in Positano ein Domizil...sie blieben den ganzen Juli dort, trafen sich auch mit Emilio (auch ein Freund von Douglas) und anderen...er unternahm 1946 mehrere Reise mit Jeffreys, unter anderem auch nach Scanno...mehr weiss ich leider nicht...

Fragen Sie am besten in der Yale University nach...dort liegt der literarische Nachlass von Douglas mit vielen Briefen an Jeffreys... Viel Erfolg bei Ihrer Suche Mit einem Gruss aus Chur Robert Kohler

Sehr geehrter Herr Kohler,

es scheint, dass Norman Douglas einen Patensohn hatte mit Namen David Jeffreys or Jeffries.

Dieser war selbst Autor mehrerer Bücher, deren Titel ich aber nicht kenne. Er hat seinerzeit viele seiner Manuskripte an einen Fritz Liebert vom Rare Book Department der Yale Universität gegeben.

Wissen Sie etwas über diesen angeblichen Patensohn? Für jeden Hinweis wäre ich Ihnen sehr dankbar.

Dear Mr. Haeberle:

Thank you for your inquiry. I apologize for the delay I responding, but we wanted to check our collections for any material by David Jeffreys. One of our reference librarians looked through our catalog records, but was not able to find anything by David Jeffreys. In the Norman Douglas Papers, there only appear to be letters FROM Douglas to Jeffreys.

I'm sorry that we don't have more that would be of use to your research.
