BODIES, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY
The study called history of sexuality is a topic that Michel Foucault has satisfactorily analyzed, aiming to tackle the mysteries and questions regarding sexuality. Foucault states that sex catches each person unaware, stating that this causes numerous questions which are loquacious and restrained and have endless replies. The study outlines that the Western community has developed a great demand of wishing to know the truth about sex. During the ancient days of the Middle Ages, talking about sex was a formidable act, but for the last one century, there has been a certain preference to pursue on facts regarding sex and its relationship with people.

The numerous questions that he kept asking his parents about what he termed as ‘widdler.’ Gender superiority complex is experienced when little Hans’ sister was born and at first he was jealous of her arrival but after accepting her, he still feels superior over her (Bernheimer & Kahane, 1985).
Freud managed to remove Dora’s cough symptom but as he imposed her to accept her attraction to Herr and insinuation of the interfamily drama complex, he alienated her since she stopped taking drugs after eleven weeks (Bernheimer & Kahane, 1985).
