Phallic Symbolism

Joan Riviere

Speaking of homo-sexuality between women for the first time in analysis, a woman patient expressed disgust at such a practice. On being asked the origin of this feeling, she said: 'Well, it's not so much disgusting, perhaps, as boring. I mean it seems such a pointless idea, so utterly meaningless—like trying to play tennis without balls!' The next moment she herself laughed at the quite unconscious significance of what she had said.
