"From small, from Goldorak and Candy, who passed following, I have the passion to reverse just to see."
"femininity is the whoring. The art of servility."
Virginie Despentes

Here are some excerpts from the conference on the femininity of Freud, the prelude to my video :
"the girl castration complex is also born at the sight of the genital organs of the opposite sex"
"the girl first considers his mutilation as an individual misfortune"
"she expresses, by a reaction against the pleasure the clitoris allows her to experience her dissatisfaction to have such a poor organ"
"modesty, virtue passes for specifically female and is, in reality, much more conventional one might think, had the original purpose, we believe, to conceal the defects of the genitalia"
"envy and jealousy play a more significant role in the spiritual life of the woman in the man's"
"in them the ability to sublimate instincts still lower"
"If you think that by giving so much importance to the role in the formation of femininity, the lack of a penis, I am prey to a fixed idea, and so I stay disarmed"

On the influence of the writings of Luce Irigaray, my video reverse the theory of penis envy from the definition of envy given by Melanie Klein when she writes: "The deterioration and devaluation are inherent in envy : a devalued object has no reason to be envied. "

Frigidity creativity, thought by Freud as a consequence of penis envy, is the result of vagina envy or the inhibition of a mental vagina, echoing the "mental dick" invented by Virginie Despentes. 

Masturbation is a political and poetic act.
