Yvon Brès : isolated and amplified

The “ sexual liberation ” of the sixties gives way, in our time, to equivocal social phenomena : pro-homosexuality propaganda, the tracking down of pedophiles, the dread of sexual harassment. In fact, liberation was sometimes replaced by a militancy ignorant of the real meaning of Freud’s “ sexual theory ”, particularly the idea he expressed in 1895, that some neurotic symptoms result from the “ isolation ” and “ exaggeration ” of components of the “ normal ” sexual act.
