Her choice to wait, and her relationship to this choice, flowed from her ability to be with and for 18 Luce Irigaray: Teaching herself first. Indeed, she had already ended more than one relationship with a man that could not accept her decision. In recalling Irigaray’s lament from Elemental Passions (pp. 7–8), we can see that Daphne was engaged in a struggle to exist, unwilling to espouse the penetration of the other until she could be sure that she would not leave herself behind. Like many other women with vulvar pain, Daphne had a tremendous opportunity to be with herself during genital physical therapy sessions.

The mirror is a frozen – and polemical – weapon to keep us apart. (Sexes and Genealogies, p. 65; italics in original) When I met Daphne in the spring of 2005, her use of the mirror ran the risks to which Irigaray alludes. The vulvar awareness that she brought to her first clinic visit – applauded by her physician and I in the abstract – was nevertheless created and sustained in a state of exteriority that wanted for deeper bodily integration. I suggest that this exteriority was all that was available to Daphne at this stage of her becoming, however.

This was a striking and surprising reality to me; I practised as a gynaecological clinician in the field of women’s health care for almost twenty years, and had not previously encountered this intriguing group of patients. My analysis of virginity, however, had stopped at its anatomical definition, at the holding back that I describe on page 17. It was during the seminar that I came to appreciate the holding in aspects of Irigaray’s interpretation of virginity. This conceptual shift provided me with a new set of trajectories through which to analyse the patients that I continued to encounter throughout the summer.
