One nineteenth century doctor invented a device which administered electric shocks to a sleeping boy's penis upon erection.The insane, pale, quivering masturbator along with the lascivious barren prostitute emerge as creatures spreading contagion and weakening the modern social body.

Freud and psychoanalysis provides a conceptualisation of how the "natural" materials of sexuality (instincts) are transformed into culture and individual psycho-sexuality.

From natural chaos to social order -; id to the super-ego.

It is a curious irony that we moderns commonly portray Victorian sexual mores as puritanistic, moralistic and highly repressive, when like never before, sexuality became a focus of public and private attention.

The Victorian bourgeois may have covered their piano legs out of modesty, but as an emergent social and political force they chose sexuality as the basis for delineating their identity from the aristocracy, peasants and emergent working classes. Toward the beginning of the eighteenth century, there emerged a political, economic, and technical incitement to talk about sex. This need to take sex ‘into account’, to pronounce a discourse on sex that would not derive from morality alone but from rationality as well, was sufficiently new that at first it wondered at itself and sought apologies for its own existence.

Prostitution or "whoring" had long been regarded as detrimental to the Empire, however it had no special place alongside blasphemy, drunkenness and other public disturbances.

It is not until the nineteenth century that it is elevated to a "social evil" of gigantic proportions.

Fundamental to Freud is the belief that civilisation is only possible at the expense of repressing and regulating our natural sexual instincts.

Freud speaks of an "aboriginal population of the mind" describing it as the "dark inaccessible part of our personality ...

Freud divides the mind into a hierarchical opposition between the conscious and unconscious, giving primacy to the latter.

The unconscious, with its dark, impulsive, unstructured labyrinths of memories which have no chronological origins or definite form, cannot be recovered or comprehended by the conscious component of the mind, and thus must be mediated through a "pre-conscious" buffer which regulates its desires.

Sexuality in general becomes dominated by men’s fear concerning women’s sexuality, expressed as a threat to public rational masculinity.
