seemed related to the patient's childhood exhibitionistic masturbation and to the idea that she had been rejected by her mother because she was not a boy. Her father, too, had been emotionally distant; the exhibitionism, which had continued in her adult fantasies, seemed to represent a phallic identification with him. In only four weeks of psychotherapy the patient came to believe that she might harbor a wish to be pregnant as her mother had been pregnant with her.

Her love relationships continue to be brief and intense.
