DE LA IGLESIA, Matilde; MELERA, Gustavo; SILVESTRE, Leonor  and  REPOSSI, Mariano. Biopolitics of the clitoris: analysis of a case on the legal protection of pleasure. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp. 39-49. ISSN 1851-1686.

This communication forms part of the work of the research group UBACYT P423, 2008/10, Analysis of the practice on legal psychoanalysis in relation to crimes against sexual integrity (law 25087/99) and sexual rights: organisational-institutional, symbolic-imaginary and genealogical-historical dimensions. Director: Matilde de la Iglesia. It analyses a case on clitoris mutilation, the first antecedent in Argentina of the legal protection of pleasure. The sentences in First and Second Instances (1959- 1961, respectively), and the comment on them by Professor Ouviña published by La Ley Magazine in 1963 were taken as files of reference. A biopoltical approach was applied, including the debate on the limits of crimes against sexual integrity and sexual rights, and taking into account recent developments on gender studies.

Keywords : Legal psychology; Clitoridectomy; Biopolitics.
