In his early archeologic excavations of neurosis, Freud analysed the aetiology of coitus interruptus as linked to anxiety. It was one of the chief coordinates for his opening of re-examination into human sexuality. Freud observed that there was a conjunction between sexuality and anxiety because the sexual experience in the first place determined the mode, the degree, and the frequency of anxiety. Needless to say, the interruptus had effects on both sexes as it was theirs, woman’s and man’s, desires that ushered it into the bedroom. We had to wait until later stages of his teaching where Lacan spoke about feminine sexuality in disjunction from anxiety neurosis.
