Money Wisdom #344

"Copulation is uterine regression. 'The purpose of the sex act can be none other than an attempt to return to the womb.' 'The sex act achieves this transitory regression in a three-fold manner: the whole organism attains this goal by purely hallucinatory means, somewhat as in sleep; the penis, with which the organism as a whole has identified itself, attains it partially or symbolically; while only the sexual secretion itself possesses the prerogative, as representative of the ego and its narcissistic double, the genital, of attaining in reality to the womb of the mother.' "

Ferenczi, Thalassa, 18
