PERES, Rodrigo Sanches; CENTURION, Neftali Beatriz  e  CREMASCO, Maria Virginia Filomena. "Becoming" and "being" a woman: a brief essay on female sexuality. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2018, vol.50, n.2, pp. 401-420. ISSN 0101-4838.

Psychoanalysis has potentially helpful contributions to current debates about sexuality. Discussions on this topic are essential in current days, especially on Brazilian society, considering the recent up surging of a sexist mentality which incites various forms of abuse and violence against women. Therefore, this brief theoretical essay aims to present a mapping of psychoanalytical postulations, Freudian and post-Freudian, on female sexuality. More precisely, we seek, in a first moment, to circumscribe central thesis on "becoming" a woman, as proposed by Freud. In a second moment, we plan to synthesize propositions of contemporary authors with whom we can establish a dialogue and that, in our midst, have used psychoanalysis to reflect about "being" a woman, or, in other words, the experience of female sexuality in adulthood, namely in mature age. We have concluded that the propositions of the contemporary authors we synthesized here made advancements in some aspects on Freudian's theories on female sexuality, but don't render his ideas obsolete.

Palavras-chave : sexuality; female sexuality; psychoanalysis; psychoanalytical theory.
