- The thesis presented in this theoretical essay is that the youth of our modern societies are at risk of “body-focusing”. To develop this thesis, two avenues are taken and integrated: the one analyzing the hazards of the adolescent normative development and the one exploring the consequences of the present social transformations on people’s life. It is proposed that, due to the lack of sufficient social support in our modern societies, some young people answer by a bodily “solution” for the developmental problem of the anguishes that assault them. This solution would put them more at risk to remain in one of the first phases of the adolescent psychosexual development, the one where sexuality is practiced as an aim in itself, without passion nor intimacy with the OTHER.
