Claude Monneret: pornography and the deferred action of the Oedipus complex

I will discuss the treatment of two adolescents presenting a heightened oedipal crisis linked to early disturbances in the relation with the primal object, and for whom the use of pornographic representations and practices is a defense against the traumatic threat of incestuous attraction to the mother and against the genital relation, which brings issues of the relation with another person. This regressive, defensive sexuality touches many adolescents to different degrees at the onset of the crisis of adolescence.

Éric Bidaud : The Adolescent and the “Pornographic Stage”

We propose to analyse a category : the “ obscene ”. We define this category as a function : in the space of the relationship with the other, it plays both a regulating and a parading role, as a way of being in front of the other, while struggling against his/her fascination.
Adolescents, in their relationship with the “ pornographic scene ”, question the body of the other, which is experienced as an object of attraction but also of danger.
