SANTOS, Tânia Coelho dos  and  ZEITOUNE, Christiane da Mota. Love, impasses of the sexuation and infractional act in adolescence. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2011, vol.43, n.1, pp. 85-108. ISSN 0101-4838.

Starting from the Freudian hypothesis that the repression of infantile sexuality founded the unconscious after the dissolution of the Oedipus complex, and guided by the concepts of symbolic, imaginary and real, proposed by Lacang, this article discusses the effects of the castration complex in male sexuation showing that the infractional acts of adolescents may be a response to an encounter with love. We question if this type of response shows that, in the contemporary world, the classic neurotic symptom is an insufficient solution to localize the subject in the field of identification and object choice. In place of the symptoms as return of the repressed come the so-called "diseases of the act" - including the infractional acts - that shows that for some adolescents their symptomatic response take the form of an acting out.

Keywords : sexuation; adolescence; desire; enjoyment; act.
