Abstract

Sexuality may appear to be an entity among those most deeply rooted in the notion of the REAL. Sexuality refers to the physical forms which precisely characterize the differences between the sexes; it is based on elaborate physiological mechanisms and it must feed upon a relational reality outlining its own sociological dimension. Yet, it is the world of sexuality that the imaginary finds one of its most consistent sources and wherein it plays an indispensable supporting role.
