The following example shows another aspect of bite: I had to get a large spider into a small dwelling.

I was worried the bite might be poisonous, but it seemed all right’ (Alan P).
The large spider, small dwelling and finger refer to sexual intercourse. Alan feels fear of introducing his finger into the bottle because he might be bitten. So here the bite refers to the injection of fearful emotions, unwillingness, into his sexual impulse.
The spider often refers to the mother, and in fact Alan’s mother made him fearful of sex. So the bite is clearly to do with feeling attacked by anxieties or one’s urges.
