Masochism is expressed as an aggravated form of Symptom. It expresses the fundamental tendency of the psychical apparatus to inertia. Freud called inertia the death drive. It is a mistake to assimilate death drive and destructive drive. The subject’s entry into language is metaphorised as a kind of entry into death. The different modes of jouissance which exist make jouissance of the barred Other and phallic jouissance evoke the jouissance and absence of the Thing against the backdrop of a lack of being. The inexistent jouissance modality of the Other phantasised in imaginary way around the demand evoking the lost fusion is expressed as forbidden jouissance in subjectivity. The symbolic phallus designates feminine jouissance which is added to phallic jouissance. When released from neurotic symptom, feminine jouissance sometimes allows love to be added to sex.
