The term narcissism comes from the clinical description and was adopted by Paul Nacke in 1899 to describe the attitude of one who treats his own body in the same manner in which it is usually treated the body of a sexual object, so he contemplates, smoothes, strokes it, until these maneuvers did not give him a complete satisfaction.

Pushed up to this degree, narcissism takes on the meaning of a perversion that has absorbed all the sex life of the subject, and that therefore present those characters which are found in the study of perversions in general.

[Sigmund Freud, Introduction to narcissism, 1913]
