Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality is a work by the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. It was first published in 1905 and is sometimes titled Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex. In the work, Freud explores his theories surrounding sexual perversions, childhood sexuality, and puberty. The first essay is The Sexual Aberrations, in which he discusses perversions such as pedophilia and bestiality. The second essay, Infantile Sexuality, talks about how in his theory, things like thumb sucking and sibling rivalry, are forms of sexual emotions. In the final essay, The Transformations of Puberty, he explores the connection between what he calls the 'fore-pleasures' of infantile sexuality and the 'end-pleasure' of sexual intercourse.
