The union of both sexes is a notable metaphor in both “Symposium” and “Lysistrata”; however, the nature of the love between the sexes draws a distinction between both works. In Symposium, Aristophanes described how both sexes were so powerful when united; and when they were separated, human beings still strived to be united once more by any means. On the other hand, in Lysistrata the characters were already married and united; however, women found their true strength when they started a psychological war on their men. Even though both works drew the readers’ attention to the need for love, Symposium emphasizes the union of sexes in a way that the characters in Lysistrata will never reach; where love is not only about sex and physical attraction, but it’s also about a healthy relationship occupied with affection and caring. In Lysistrata, men and women were entangled in an unhealthy relationship; it was based on the objectification of human beings.

While males have a similar theory, castration anxiety, it is more easily solved as they just have a fear of losing what they already have, while females have to come to terms with not having a penis at all (Gay 1988). Generally, a female will exhibit a love for her father, and eventually replaces her wish for a penis with a wish for a baby in puberty, and that is where Freud attributes females’ drive for children. Overall, Freud’s theory places women as the greater sufferer of the two, because coming to terms with something that has already been taken away from you is much more difficult than being afraid of losing that thing, according to Freud. Freud also accounts that females develop a less demanding superego because of his theory of penis envy as well. (Gay 1988).
I. External factors that attract women Being good looking and pleasing into the eyes of women has a higher chance of catching her heart.

Yet, despite what they wanted they were stopped by the decisions of the mind, the fear it had picked up of these relationships.
