The final stage of psychosexual development is the genital stage, where sexual instincts reassert themselves in adolescence. During this stage, sexuality and pleasure are not as self-centered and the person develops an interest in gratification of another. They are able to love someone besides themselves and work constructively to become an asset to the community. The range of this developmental stage is from puberty until death.
