What does Teresa de Lauretis think about sexuality?

LOVE as PARTICIPATION?
Teresa de Lauretis. Freud`s Pride.
Histories of Subjectivation: my understanding

From my notebook:
- Look at the link "feminist & critical & queer theories";
- Reframe Sigmund Freud and think in terms of "practice of love";
- Learn from Jean Laplanche: sexuality as endogenic (in a human body) and exogenic (dependent on care);
- Early years of maternal care: no escape of repression =>  from German "Nachträglichkeit" of trauma;
- There is unforgotten "repressed memory" in everyone;
- Also, there are some "enigmatic messages" (untranslated but with symptomatic reactivation in the adult sexuality);
- Moral & Erotic: Self-translation, RE-translation and DE-translation;
- Gender & sexuality: It is about the choice of a sexual object(s);
- Instinct sexuality is like pre-program (organism, hormones...);
- The sexual drive as a disequilibrium: from German "(Pre-/Vor-)Lust" of relaxation, satisfaction, affection, reciprocity (gratification???);
- At the same time, this drive is a source of unconscious fantasies;
- The problem of rebalancing: How we can bridge from trauma to macro trauma (?) or even to "geopolitical trauma"?;
- The materiality of the body & "ego-preservative drive" as a problem?;
- The situation with "relationships": The OTHER should understand the enigmatic messages from the body too...;
- Participation in gender construction (1. early childhood: identification through stimulation, 2. adulthood: identity through choice?);
- Gender & Ego & participation of Ego?

...more question than answers...
         ...work in progress...
