A website registered in New York is promising a gay cure for $12.99. The site at hocdfree.com is registered to Patrick Ortner of Tonawanda, New York, and promises to cure Homosexual Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (HOCD) “faster than you ever thought possible.”

At the site, Ortner shares his experience with HOCD that has haunted him all his life and praises the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) that finally cured him.

“My name is Patrick and I am a completely recovered sufferer of HOCD. I had this problem since I was 12 years old. ... To constantly obsess that you might be gay others may think your gay for years is damaging to your quality of life,” Ortner explains.

“The challenge never ended. ... The fear, doubt, and anxiety had taken over my life. I knew I had to do something.”

“I finally found this energy therapy called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). The simple theory behind it, was that it removed the emotional charge of negative emotions and experiences. ... I could use it to reprogram myself.”

“Within a matter of a couple of weeks my inner and outer behavior had been cleared of HOCD. I was free to be me. Free to flirt and date girls. Free to fall in love, and most of all free to enjoy my life.”

Ortner promises to cure anyone 100% in 7 days or less with his $12.99 pamphlet.

“In fact, many people who apply what you're about to learn become totally free from their residual fears, doubts, obsessions and other related anxiety symptoms in as little as 20 minutes,” Ortner says.

“People who are acting out unwanted sexual behaviors don't need to pay [ex-gay group] Exodus boot camps hundreds of dollars per week, and they don't need to pay $12.99 to down-on-their-luck dudes from suburban Buffalo,” said Truth Wins Out President Wayne Besen on the group's blog. “Celibacy is free, folks – that may be one reason why ex-gay political activists rarely discuss it.
