Putting control of his libido in the hands of his partner effected, in his words, an alchemical change within that allowed his Anima to come forward, giving him the space to recognize it for what it is and to integrate it. This wasn't necessarily his intention when he started the practice, but he said it has been the most definite effect.

He's not heterosexual.

noun: anima; plural noun: animas
Jung's term for the feminine part of a man's personality.
the part of the psyche that is directed inward, and is in touch with the subconscious.
I asked my question because (wiki) In the unconscious of a man, this archetype finds expression as a feminine inner personality: anima; equivalently, in the unconscious of a woman it is expressed as a masculine inner personality: animus. My point was I ask if a gay man is basically a woman in a man's body? If he is therefore a woman then he has an Animus to counterbalance his ego as oppose to what a hetero man has i.e an Anima.
