The male dominion has never failed, but for a century there have been great changes in the relationship between the sexes. The strongest earthquake was produced by feminism in the 1970s, as a radical criticism of the roles of the masculine and the feminine, their supposed "naturalness", the cancellation of female sexuality and of women as an individual, to the sexual division of labor, to motherhood as destiny. It is there, in the domestic sphere, that women have shown that they no longer want to be a body available to others. Separations, divorces, the growing number of women living alone are materially and symbolically proof that the millennial female "oblativity", as "self-sacrifice", is failing. As a result, insecurity, a sense of failure and helplessness increase in man, an intolerable awareness of his addiction, which has so far been masked or removed. If, despite everything, the idealization of the family is so lasting, perhaps it is because it is in the interiors of the houses that the nostalgia of the son-man returns, the power of the mother-woman's indispensability and the residues of a declining patriarchal dominion return to be confused . We must therefore ask ourselves what part love has - as an extension, albeit an illusory one, of the original unity with the mother's body - in maintaining the ambiguity that lurks in the family, love and sexual ties.
