Claire Squires: from nymphe to nymphomania

The author approaches hypersexuality as the repeated impossibility of controlling pleasure-seeking sexual behavior, pursuing it despite its negative physical, psychological and social consequences. Nymphomaniac (L. Von Trier), Jeune et Jolie (F. Ozon), La Tête haute (E. Bercot), along with two adolescent girls who have been victims of childhood abandonment or sexual abuse, offer an opportunity for studying the traumatic origins of hypersexuality in adolescence.
