CAMPOS, Denise Teles Freire. The female perversion and social bond. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2010, vol.42, n.2, pp. 287-311. ISSN 0101-4838.

This work discusses the "female perversion" in the psychoanalysis field and its relation with the social bond face to the current culture transformations, especially the "feminization of the social world" and the "decline of the paternal function". The text takes up the fundaments of the perversion as way of saving of the desire, the Freud's theory of fetish as the substitute to the maternal phallus and the permanence of a primary identification with the mother, to affirm the existence of a perverse strand in women. The idea of a "perverse world" is a bad metaphor to understanding female perversions. What we purpose ourselves to discuss is how, to some women, in the identification process (Freud, 1905; 1921), the identification's way as internalization of the object's attributes, then in the dialectics of "being" the object, is replaced by "having" the object (The identification's way as possession of the object and the attempt of remaining in the position of phallus of Other), installing the voracity of enjoyment in this "having".
