This article explores sexual fantasy as an articulation of unconscious phantasy in couple relationships. Drawing on patterns of attachment and attending to "pretend" and "psychic equiv-alence" states of mind, it considers the potential of partners to combine in enacting shared un-conscious phantasy through fantasy-driven sexual encounters. Observations about different forms of narcissistic object relating are made in this context, and some implications for couple therapists suggested.
Keywords: sexual fantasy, shared unconscious phantasy, attachment in couples, narcissistic object relating, couple psychotherapy.
