Freud, unwelcome guest at pool parties

bbq pool party

The beginning of the warm season always coincides with smell of grilled meat that comes under the nose on sunny weekends. Gas, electric or charcoal, doesn’t matter, for many the bbq is a shamanic ritual, which reconnects man to the essential and to nature. For Sigmund Freud, instead, the bbq was just a big nuisance: the Austrian psychoanalyst was not welcome on those occasions, because when he was there nobody dared to touch the sausages.
