that's just, like, your opinion, man

'The Early Christian Father's "inter urinas et faeces nascimur" clings to sexual life and cannot be detached from it in spite of every effort at idealization.'

Pelican Freud vol. 8 Case Histories I 'Dora' and 'Little Hans', pp. 62-3

Little Hans! Le Petit Prince of the phobia world. I read a translation that had the word 'wiwimacher' in it - I presumed the translator just used the original word as it seems so easily understood (and is so lovely, no?). And yet, and yet... no German I have asked has ever heard of this expression. They were all girls though.
