At this period of development ‘the component instincts have already come together for the choice of an object and that object is already something extraneous in contrast to the subject’s own self, but in which the primacy of the genital zones has not yet been established.

We learn with some astonishment from psycho-analysis of the transmutations normally undergone by the sexual excitations arising from this zone and of the frequency with which it retains a con­ siderable amount of susceptibility to genital stimulation throughout life. ‘Children who are making use of the susceptibility to erotogenic stimulation of the anal zone betray themselves by holding back their stool till its accumulation brings about violent muscular contractions and, as it passes through the anus, is able to produce powerful stimulation of the mucous membrane.

This form of sexual organization can persist throughout life and permanently attract a large portion of sexual activity to itself. The predominance in it of sadism and the cloacal part played by the anal zone give it a quite peculiarly archaic colouring. ’1 In 1917 Freud interrupted a series of theoretical papers to publish a more clinical one on ‘The Transformation of Instincts with Special Reference to Anal Erotism’. 2 This 1917 paper is not the first discussion of these ideas which are already described in 1915 in the addition to the Three Essays.
