In this work the author suggests a theoretical hypotesis that could help in managing the tight spaces in the therapy field with perverse structured subjects. The author, after having defined to which kind of perverse structures she refers, suggests to think to these patients as if they don’t have "playing space", like a screw that can’t work because it cannot unfold its natural dynamic. Referring to Winnicott playing theory, in its double meaning of space that allow you to play and at the same time of the game that take place in that space, the author suggests to think about typical perverse mechanisms of objects control, manipulation, construction of a new-reality, etc., as an effort to restore the subject’s own psychic dynamic that couldn’t be expressed enough and that sclerotized perverting itself, folding inside. The author supports her hypothesis by describing a clinical situation and focus on some aspects of perversion experience such as a kind of psychic abuse that inhibits aggressiveness with the consequence of the subject’s potencial space and his action folding inside.
