Sigmund Freud believed there were three stages of sexuality that a person could get stuck in, and that were necessary for sexual maturity and overall health within a human. These stages were (in order): oral, then anal, and finally Oedipus, after which a child would reach the healthy stage of sexuality. The oral stage is about consumption and that being the childs source of pleasure, the pleasure coming from an outside source and being generally uncontrollable. Next, the anal stage is about being in control and giving instead of needing to take, the potty-training stage. Finally comes the Oedipus stage, where the child sort of mimics the old tale of Oedipus a little less extremely.
