I just skimmed over the article again. This one line jumped out at me:
I give back the father figure.
Upon my last reading I may have made the error of interpreting it as the Doktor offering himself as a father figure to the women in his relationships. I see now that this may have meant that he intended to "give back" the father figure role as obsolete. Is this what you think Dr. LaVey meant?
In any case, I'm going to continue to use what works for me!
