9781859726792: Forbidden Femininity: Child Sexual Abuse and Female Sexuality

This text examines the darker side of female sexuality, which has a greater tendency towards sadism, and an impulse to male domination than previously supposed. While this feminine dispassion is normally repressed, and defended against, as a social and internal psychical imperative, it does find expression under particular circumstances. The study considers accounts of female sexual fantasy, presented case studies, action research, and analyses survivors accounts of sexual abuse by women, all of which suggest a sadistic orientation in feminine sexuality. The evidence presented seeks to directly contradict social expectations of, and demands upon, "the feminine" and the "maternal". Presenting a theoretical formulation of the psychopathology of female sexuality, which accounts for both the masculine, and sadistic impulses in women, which is perhaps denied in expression to them, and within them. The analysis goes on to suggest that the maternal critically determines the ascendancy of the male in subsequent social sexual, and power relationships.
