British Journal of Medical Psychology. LVIII, 1985: Dangers of the Vagina. Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi. Pp. 351-356.

James E. Strom

The author provides many citations and examples of fantasies about the dangers of the vagina. He emphasizes that these fantasies "do not represent just individual anxieties but are also cultural products transmitted and distributed through cultural ways." Dramatic, literary, and scientific publications, oral traditions and myths, and a published case by the author are cited as illustrations of how such fantasies are transmitted. The intrapsychic origins of the fantasies are not discussed. One senses that the author may wish to convey that men have such fantasies because they heard them or read about them.
