Personal Quote:

Let's look at the name 'Father Christmas. It's obviously an Oedipal fantasy. Santa Claus is supposed to come down a chimney, a simulacrum for a vagina. Then he leaves presents, and children are always anxious about what kind. So it's really all about parents engaged in sex, an act that necessarily excludes the kids. See more »

Trivia:

Son of Dr. Vivian Rakoff, a psychiatrist, and Dr. Gina Shochat-Rakoff, a physician of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. See more »

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
