ABSTRACT
Freudian theory offers an understanding about genital children’s organization as a phallic development, meaning that during the first years of life, both boy and girl have a male development. This condition last until the Oedipus Complex when, conscious of sexual differentiation, most of the boys would confirm their masculinity, and the girls, mostly, would be forced to fit as females through the acceptance of castration. This implies to consider that the sex life of the woman - or men identified with the position of castrated - would be characterized by two distinct moments: the initial, male, and a subsequent, only the latter specifically female. In this paper, the transition between these phases will be explored semiotically, by reference to peircean notion of habit
