The Poetic Timestamp of Digital Erotic Objects

Stephen Hartman, Ph.D.

Upon describing the temporal qualities of analog and digital platforms existent during copresent and online psychotherapy, I propose that the medium of interaction influences the manner by which analog and digital erotic introjects are represented and used, lending different textures to erotic transference. The digital cyberobject is introjected as searchable rather than losable such that the transference becomes less about indexing the past in narrative than articulating novel forms of presence. The two types of introjects splice together in reveries that take a mixed analog/digital character during our efforts to formulate erotic experience.
