Just to talk about incest
In class, Mrs. Quinet gave us a few passages from Freud to read. He talks a lot of sexuality and the subconscious mind. Wasn't he also the guy who coined the term "Oedipus complex"? He states that a young boy subconsciously wants to kill his father and sleep with his mother. I'm not sure why he thought this was true, but he seems to be very interested in the psychology of sexuality.
