Psychosexual Stages of Development - Latency Stage

Sicko-sexual with Lay-in-tent
The latency stage of psychosexual development spans from 6 to 11 years of age, and describes a point in life when the child is less influenced by sexual and aggressive instincts, due to input from the superego. The child seems to focus more on friendships and learning more about the world outside of the family. They develop a disgust of the opposing sex, and this may manifest in adults as latency fixation, which is a disgust towards sex.
