Nella società attuale, i ritmi della trasformazione hanno registrato un’accelerazione tale che, per la prima volta nella nostra storia, la generazione adulta non riesce ad immaginare la società che attende i propri figli. Per queste ragioni, emerge una domanda di comprensione del presente, prima ancora della previsione del futuro. Per il supporto della salute sessuale femminile, gli sforzi attuali sono contrapposti ad una certa pressione ad uniformarsi all’oggetto dei desideri maschili. Il continuo richiamo esercitato da uno sguardo, esterno o interno, sull’aspetto fisico interrompe la concentrazione e diminuisce la possibilità di entrare in contatto con le proprie sensazioni ed i propri bisogni. L’auspicio è quello che sempre più si diffonda la cultura del gruppo di studio e di intervento, formato da figure professionali diverse ed integrate, che possano cogliere gli aspetti fisiologici, psicologici, relazionali e culturali, sia nelle loro peculiarità, sia nello loro interazioni reciproche.


Keywords: Oggettificazione, sessualizzazione precoce, salute sessuale, sviluppo psicosessuale, identità sessuale
