Indd 35 The Oedipus Complex in the 21st Century 35 7/5/2007 6:33:16 AM A full bladder or a full rectum is to empty. A stuffed nose is to pick at. A mouth is to kiss. A genital is to fondle and rub against. A pigtail is to pull. A little brother standing quietly is for a big brother to agitate. A stone, a pea, or a ball is to throw. A breast or a bottom is to fondle. A naked body is to peer at. A skirt is to look under. Genitals are to display with pride. A wall is to draw on. Bedroom sounds are to listen to and fantasize about.
