I don't think it is in bad taste at all, C4. However, our majority of gentlemen posters may not feel up to discussing this subject.

Alas, I'd come across the atrocities performed on Victorian women years ago by stumbling over a scholarly article. I suspect if Brown had been experimenting on workhouse women, instead of hospital patients, no one would have minded about his not getting permission.
