Is Oedipus complex real?

Sigmund Freud theorized that all young boys experience sexual desire towards their mother. I consider Freud to be quack nut job yet he is held to be a great thinker by universities despite many people disagreeing with his theories. I never experienced sexual desire towards my mother but it's something I occasionally hear mentioned by guys that always point to Freud as "proof" that it's normal. What's your thoughts on this? Have you experienced this or known someone that did?

Superb Opinion

  • I think a boys mom is the first model for what he might look for in a woman. Hence why if women would have a problem with their son finding a woman exactly like them, they should definitely look at changing.

    • I would also state that my comment above is exactly why some men choose such bad women to be with.
