Griffin Hansbury’s (2017) theory of a "masculine Vaginal" is seen as pleonastic in the context of psychoanalytic theory in general; for Freud, in fact, male and female are not fundamental charac-ters of human sexuality, but "constructions". Hansbury’s clinical case is discussed in the scope of a general theory of masochism, revisiting the notion of feminine masochism. It is ultimately shown that queer theory’s ideological libertarian intent ends up accepting precisely that very logic of gender that it seeks to transgress and overcome.
Keywords: Sexuality and gender; Erotic mas-ochism; Female masochism; Lacan; Rejection of femininity
