Disorganisation & Sex

Jamieson Webster

Never does the patient seem more ill than when they try to order associations into a logical tale. Classical analysis sees this in terms of a repudiation of sexuality: an attempt to avoid speaking from a place of desire. But why should psychoanalysis reduce everything to sex? Disorganisation & Sex argues that the sexuality of psychoanalysis is not a reductive materialism, but an archaic remainder that cannot be colonised, endlessly disorienting meaning in our everyday lives. It is our proximity to this terrain that undoes our most tedious habits, and opens onto something revelatory. If sex only ever achieves partial satisfactions, fragments of pleasure, its pursuit creates our subjectivity and our world. Psychoanalysis keeps the subversive possibility of sex alive in an age of cheap pleasures and empty transgressions.

Being dragged into the orbit of Webster’s mind is like entering the Magic Mountain: you go in as a visitor, and stay as a patient.
