Sexuality projective identification

The person who uses sexuality projective identification forces the “other” to provide erotic reactions. Messages with sexual content are projected as covert communication. Differing from those that have normal sexual, relationships in which there is sexuality projective identification, sexual function does not arise spontaneously and is not impulsive, and sexuality overshadows all other aspects of the relationship. This means that when sexuality disappears, the relationship ends. Sexuality projective identification is unique in that it depends upon the behaviors being highly valued by the child, rather than the restriction of them and usually arises from a mother-child relationship in which the message of, “you are desired as long as you make me feel excited and stimulate me” is given. The child learns that his communications that are coy and flirtatious, or that consist of sexuality are more valuable than the covert messages, which are not actually spelled (Cashdan, 1988; Göka, Yüksel & Göral, 2006).
