At least those of you who survived Auschwitz, Belsen, the London Blitz and the co-optation of America. Austrians are nothing if not charming. Holding the Congress in Vienna had been a hotly debated issue for years, and many of the analysts had come only reluctantly. Anti-Semitism was part of the problem, but there was also the possibility that radical students at the University of Vienna would decide to stage demonstrations. I began my research by approaching Dr Smucker near the galley, where he was being served coffee by one of the stewardesses.

He looked at me with barely a glimmer of recognition. Dr Smucker seemed taken aback by the shocking intimacy of the question. He looked at me long and searchingly. I should have known.

Why do analysts always answer a question with a question? And why should this night be different from any other night—despite the fact that we are flying in a and eating unkosher food?

Analysts all seem to be Talmudists who flunked out of seminary in the first year. He had none of the flat-footed literal-mindedness which makes even the most brilliant psychoanalysts sound so pompous. The horse you are dreaming about is your father. The kitchen stove you are dreaming about is your mother.

The piles of bullshit you are dreaming about are, in reality, your analyst. This is called the transference. Even if you loved your husband, there came that inevitable year when fucking him turned as bland as Velveeta cheese You dream about breaking your leg on the ski slope.

You have, in fact, just broken your leg on the ski slope and you are lying on the couch wearing a ten-pound plaster cast which has had you housebound for weeks, but has also given you a beautiful new appreciation of your toes and the civil rights of paraplegics.

And forget about your mother the oven and your analyst the pile of shit. What do we have left except the smell? You feel rather like the Trojan warriors in the Iliad with Zeus and Hera fighting above them. You, him, your analyst, his analyst. Four in a bed.

Fear of Flying by Erica Jong – read the first chapter

This picture is definitely rated X. We had been in this state for at least the past year. Every decision was referred to the shrink, or the shrinking process. Should we move into a bigger apartment? Should we have a baby? Something seemed very wrong in our marriage.

Our lives ran parallel like railroad tracks. Bennett spent the day at his office, his hospital, his analyst, and then evenings at his office again, usually until nine or ten. I taught a couple of days a week and wrote the rest of the time. My teaching schedule was light, the writing was exhausting, and by the time Bennett came home, I was ready to go out and break loose. I had had plenty of solitude, plenty of long hours alone with my typewriter and my fantasies. And I seemed to meet men everywhere.

The world seemed crammed with available, interesting men in a way it never had been before I was married. What was it about marriage anyway? Even if you loved your husband, there came that inevitable year when fucking him turned as bland as Velveeta cheese: filling, fattening even, but no thrill to the taste buds, no bittersweet edge, no danger.

And you longed for an overripe Camembert, a rare goat cheese: luscious, creamy, cloven- hoofed. I was not against marriage.

I believed in it in fact. But what about all those other longings which after a while marriage did nothing much to appease?

The restlessness, the hunger, the thump in the gut, the thump in the cunt, the longing to be filled up, to be fucked through every hole, the yearning for dry champagne and wet kisses, for the smell of peonies in a penthouse on a June night, for the light at the end of the pier in Gatsby Not those things really—because you knew that the very rich were duller than you and me—but what those things evoked.

The sardonic, bittersweet vocabulary of Cole Porter love songs, the sad sentimental Rodgers and Hart lyrics, all the romantic nonsense you yearned for with half your heart and mocked bitterly with the other half. What a liability! You grew up with your ears full of cosmetic ads, love songs, advice columns, whoreoscopes, Hollywood gossip, and moral dilemmas on the level of TV soap operas.

What litanies the advertisers of the good life chanted at you! What curious catechisms! And the crazy part of it was that even if you were clever, even if you spent your adolescence reading John Donne and Shaw, even if you studied history or zoology or physics and hoped to spend your life pursuing some difficult and challenging career—you still had a mind full of all the soupy longings that every high-school girl was awash in.

Only the surface trappings were different. Only the talk was a little more sophisticated. Underneath it all, you longed to be annihilated by love, to be swept off your feet, to be filled up by a giant prick spouting sperm, soapsuds, silks and satins, and of course, money. Nobody bothered to tell you what marriage was really about.

You expected not to desire any other men after marriage. And you expected your husband not to desire any other women. Then the desires came and you were thrown into a panic of self-hatred. What an evil woman you were! How could you keep being infatuated with strange men? And because of that, we took all measures to make it to the safest way of travel.

The probability of your plane going down is around one in 5. Traveling in a car is times more deadly than flying in a plane. Despite the high profile plane crashes in the past, it has never been safer to fly. So are you also afraid when driving in the car?

Flying: the safest means of transportation! Anxiety originates from ignorance! I think the anxiety can originate from ignorance not understanding the complex system of aviation. This starts with the ignorance of the systems of the airplane. Certain noises and normal flight maneuvers can already cause unease. For example noise of the brakes, landing gear, the flaps, and the engines. Especially during takeoff, you experience a lot of different ones. Most of you are scared of turbulences and think that they are dangerous.

Please trust me they belong to the normal path of flight. Aircraft are built to withstand turbulence with ease. Pilots always try to avoid turbulence and in case we encounter them we try to find a different level to escape the area of turbulence. This causes a spool up or down of the engines and a climb or descent to a different level.

Dr Smucker seemed taken aback by the shocking intimacy of the question. He looked at me long and searchingly. I should have known. Why do analysts always answer a question with a question? And why should this night be different from any other night—despite the fact that we are flying in a and eating unkosher food? Analysts all seem to be Talmudists who flunked out of seminary in the first year.

Ultimately though, it was the unimaginativeness of most analysts which got me down. He had none of the flat-footed literal-mindedness which makes even the most brilliant psychoanalysts sound so pompous. The horse you are dreaming about is your father. The kitchen stove you are dreaming about is your mother. The piles of bullshit you are dreaming about are, in reality, your analyst. This is called the transference.

Implying that you might just choose someone better, sweeter, handsomer, smarter, and maybe even luckier in the stock market. Implying that h e might just find someone sweeter, prettier, smarter, a better cook, and maybe even due to inherit piles of bread from her father. Something seemed very wrong in our marriage.

What all the ads and all the whoreoscopes seemed to imply was that if only you were narcissistic enough , if only you took proper care of your smells, your hair, your boobs, your eyelashes, your armpits, your crotch, your stars, your scars, and your choice of Scotch in bars—you would meet a beautiful, powerful, potent, and rich man who would satisfy every longing, fill every hole, make your heart skip a beat or stand still , make you misty, and fly you to the moon preferably on gossamer wings , where you would live totally satisfied forever.

And the crazy part of it was that even if you were clever , even if you spent your adolescence reading John Donne and Shaw, even if you studied history or zoology or physics and hoped to spend your life pursuing some difficult and challenging career—you stil l had a mind full of all the soupy longings that every high-school girl was awash in.

Then the desires came and you were thrown into a panic of self-hatred. What an evil woman you were! How could you keep being infatuated with strange men? How could you study their bulging trousers like that? How could you sit at a meeting imagining how every man in the room would screw? How could you sit on a train fucking total strangers with your eyes?It is not having babies in itself which seems unfair, but having babies for men. Do you understand? A way of life. There were days when Randy used to beat me up regularly.

Who was this phantom man who haunted my life? She is reading a pulp romance in which the characters are photographed models and the dialogue appears in little puffs of smoke above their heads.

They teach people how to fuck with their pelvises, not with their heads.
