Example text

A portion of the instinct is placed directly in the service of the sexual function, where it has an important part to play. This is sadism proper. Another portion does not share in this transposition outwards; it remains inside the organism and, with the help of the accompanying sexual excitation described above, becomes libidinally bound there. It is in this portion that we have to recognize the original, erotogenic masochism" (1924a, pp. 163-164). The concept, recently introduced (1923b, pp. 41-42), of fusion and defusion is invoked in the next step of the argument: "a very extensive fusion and amalgamation, in varying proportions, of the two classes of instincts takes place, so that we never have to deal with pure life instincts or pure death instincts but only with mixtures of them in different amounts.

Fein, has recently undertaken a detailed comparison of radical feminism with Marxism (Fein, 1999, pp. 91-122», that Freud himself was not without sympathy for the social subjection of women. Elisabeth Young-Bruehl (1990) acknowledges this basic fact (p. 25).

159). At last, an adequate statement about the phenomenon of masochism. Not that it is a perversion, a sexual deviation amongst other curious deviations, but that it is grossly and fundamentally abnormal. It is contra naturam, because it opposes the pleasure-unpleasure principle. There would surely be few psychologists who would wish to dispute the primacy of this principle. The whole edifice of behaviorism is built upon it. The fact that masochism is sometimes literally a danger to life itself is attested by the deaths ensuing on rituals such as 'bondage' and hypoxyphilia (sexual arousal by oxygen deprivation)-about 50 a year in the United States according to coroners' records of thirty years back (Litman & Swearingen, 1972) and almost certainly more numerous today.
