Parvenue à l’âge adulte, elle cherche à revivre ces plaisirs, tout en y ajoutant celui de l’automanipulation de son clitoris qu’elle découvre tardivement ; car le sexe de la femme, comme source de plaisir, l’a désertée très tôt pour rejoindre l’invisible et donc l’ignoré : devenu un mot, il faut un contexte propice pour que ce mot reprenne corps. • Un besoin de s’aimer tout entière, aidée par son reflet.

Je ne pense pas. Car Freud voyait une angoisse – et pas n’importe laquelle : l’angoisse de castration, une sorte d’émotion matricielle dont découlent selon lui toutes les autres – là où je n’en vois pas. Le petit garçon dispose d’un membre où se joue son bon plaisir contre celui des grands, mais il n’est plus question aujourd’hui, comme à l’époque de Freud, de le menacer de couper quoi que ce soit avec des ciseaux lorsqu’il se tient mal. On oublie volontiers que, lorsque Freud a développé sa théorie de la castration28, l’époque était encore à la croisade contre l’onanisme – au point qu’un chirurgien contemporain réputé pouvait, par exemple, proposer la clitoridectomie comme remède contre les mauvaises habitudes des petites filles.
