What Is the AnalStage?

By , black-rose-bielefeld.de Guide

Definition:

The anal stage is the second stage in Sigmund Freud?s theory of psychosexual development, lasting from age 18 months to three years. According to Freud, the anus is the primary erogenous zone and pleasure is derived from controlling bladder and bowl movement. The major conflict issue during this stage is toilet training. A fixation at this stage can result in a personality that is too rigid or one that is too disordered.
