Sexual Doubles and Sexual Masquerades: The Structure of Sex Symbols

Harry Trosman, M.D.


Dr. Trosman

There are so many interesting issues discussed in Dr. Doniger's paperthat it is difficult to know where to start. My remarks will be essentially directed by an interest in a psychoanalytic view of some of this rich material, considering it from the point of view of both the differentiation between contemporary men and women and the differentiation between Western and Eastern conceptions of psychology.

Quite clearly, the themes of sexual doubles and sexual masquerades cut across both Eastern and Western societies, and are not specific to either gender. Eastern and Western myths and stories are replete with these themes.
