Divided libido, or sexual drive into three aspects:
1. the impulse (operative in perversions, but also psychoneuroses—diseases of repression).
2. the object (the homosexual didn’t differ from others as to drive, but as to object)
3. the origin or body part involved in impulse--explains use of fetish)
Conclusion: That everyone was somewhat perverse—as a result of universal sexual impulse.
