Why Some Forms of Emotional and Psychological Abuse are so Very Close to Sexual Abuse

Reich exposed the sadistic and masochistic forms that repressed orgasm takes if not naturally expressed. People understand this already without having to know the Science of Reich (Mass Psychology of Fascism). We say “he fucked me up”, or “I’m going to fuck you” as a statement of the Reichian nature of the act of sadistically abusing someone by someone sexually repressed or misdirected by family and society (mass psychology). In the case of masochistic behaviour due to the same problem we might say … “he really fucked himself up”.



Alternative forms

* (bowdlerizations) f-ck, f**k, the F word, etc.


Almost certainly Germanic. Compare Norwegian fukka, Swedish focka, Dutch fokken. First attested in a poem circa 1500 in a humorous fake-Latin form, fvccant (modern spelling fuccant).
The word does not derive from an acronym of any sort.

This is why sexual abuse and emotional/psychological abuse (Vachss) are so closely related. Both have a sexual charge behind them. One is more obviously sexual than the other which is why extreme emotional and psychological abuse can be more confusing. It’s difficult to work out why a simple phrase or behaviour pattern has such a destructive effect until the sexual energy charge behind it is figured in. One can be left feeling “fucked up” after having a simple phrase or behaviour pattern aimed at them, and be left feeling confused about where the awful feelings are coming from. Apart from the cleverness of many narcissistic and psychotic or sociopathic abusers at getting at or intuiting hurtful modes of attack, there is also the Reichian (cosmic) sexual energy charge to consider that is driving the action from behind all the stage acting.
