Abstract

The phallic stage of psychosexual development is characterized by focus on the genitals around the age of 3-5 years. With the consequent development of the Oedipus complex, the primal scene may have been witnessed even prior to this life. We present the unusual case of a 21-month-old child who has developed a behavioral repertoire resembling sexual intercourse and with genital manifestations of sexual excitement. The role that primal scene witnessing and cognitive learning may play will be highlighted and their possible interactions discussed.
