Sylvan Keiser

The types of reactions to phantasies of female castration are reviewed, particularly Abraham's wish-fulfilment type and the revengeful type. From material obtained in analysis, such women yearned not for their father's large penis, but for their brother's small, impotent organ. The author's eases all had brothers of their own age,

and had been bathed with them when small. The wish-fulfilment type developed penis envy before the castration complex and blamed their mother for their lack of a penis. At an early age such women regard the penis merely as part of the body that is missing, but later in life they see it as a functioning organ. A good description of the revengeful type of woman is presented. Their everlasting injury, bitterness, and sense of unfairness is the open wound of a supposed castration. The wish-fulfilment type of woman has reached the phallic phase of development and identifies herself with her father. Such women consider their illusory penis as a 'bonus' and their penis envy develops after the phallic phase has been reached. The revengeful type develops penis envy at the anal-sadistic level.
