Through intersubjective theory it’s possible define perversions as behaviours characterized by the negation of the sunjectivity of the Other. During the article it’s observed that perversions are a mode of affective regulation; especially the perverse individual tries to deny the reality of the Other to avoid the anxiety associated to an intersubjective relationship. According to Jessica Benjamin’s intersubjective theory, perversions are a behavioral mode of avoiding intimate development with the Other. In the relations that the perverse establishes there is no mutual recognition of subjectivity. Sexuality is therefore observed from a relational and intersubjective point of view.
In the final part some reflections are proposed on the therapeutic relationship of perverse individuals.
