PainSci notes on McLachlan 2010:
In 2010, organizers of an alternative medicine conference accepted a prank submission from Dr. John C. McLachlan (in the spirit of the famous Sokal hoax.) He invented a new therapy theory to justify butt reflexology and acupuncture, based on a butt homunculus. He claimed to have done studies showing that “responses are stronger and of more therapeutic value than those of auricular or conventional reflexology.”
