Anne-Valérie Mazoyer, Marjorie Roques: idealizing, sublimatory and masochistic functions of the perverse process

We will elucidate the issue of sexuation in adolescence with reference to perverse processes, particularly of masochism. The mobilization of perverse processes is an attempt to negotiate seduction fantasies, which continue to be highly charged by traumatic realities like incest and death. We will connect perversion and sublimation, as opposed to idealization.
