Religiously or agnostically, the sexualization of the unknown is an act that the human race tends to perform with exaggerated frequency. From the archaic Dialogues of Plato, which talk about the uterus as 'an irrational animal wandering around the body of a woman’, to the Catholic interpretations of the pathology, always linked to an undesirable diabolic influence, hysteria has always been considered a disease reserved for the feminine gender.

For at least twenty centuries, the pertinent institutions have been claiming that the feminine sexual dissatisfaction induces outbreaks of body frenzy that delete consciousness as a critical thinking, relegating the hysteric woman to a kind of rutting animal.

Just as another form of the patriarchate, experiments and procedures were performed in women bodies. Some would experiment with the anger, others with the pleasure but hardly ever these procedures were for the benefit of the subject, if more, for the curiosity, or even under the name of science.

After years of misconception, hysteria has been finally separated from its subject. It is no longer attached to the image of the women and their biological condition. Nowadays, the term is recognised as a mental phenomenon that can affect any public independently of their gender or sexual desire. Hysteria can be described as a rush of feelings: hits of anger, nervousness or mental instability, emotions that any individual will go through after a traumatic episode. It is not an illness anymore but a symptom of disease.

The libertarian enthusiasm of Modern Society born from the spasms generated after the Fall of the Wall confirms a belief hitherto relegated to whispers: we are not only born capable of the lascivious games that our mind generates, but also free to carry them out.
