Modern Ego Psychology and Human Sexual Experience: Fetish, Fetish Enactments, and Perversion

Eric R. Marcus, M.D.

This article describes the experience of sensory emotional representations in sexual experience. It describes the ego processes and their spectrurns that organize these sexual representations. This modern ego psychology approach can help understand the range of sexual variations including fetish and fetish enactments. It suggests a way to clarify some of the problems of the definition of perversion. It describes the use of this approach in treatment with psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
