> I'm sure if she's been so open and accepting, there's probably not much that would shock her, and she's probably heard it all before.

Yeah, I think you're probably right.

>Has she been doing therapy for a long time?

About 20 years, a little less.

>Maybe she has a special interest in human sexuality?

I don't know. Not more than most therapists/people, I imagine. But don't most of us have a special interest in this subject? God knows I do.

> I don't know, so I'm asking out of curiosity, is it normal to take a sexual history? If so, at what point in therapy does that occur?

I think it's normal, but I don't think it's universal. Therapists all do therapy so differently, and probably each one varies their methods depending on their client. There are rarely any requirements and if this is something you're uncomfortable doing you should just be able to tell your T that. I think histories are often taken in the beginning but my relationship with this T has not been normal, since in the beginning it was all about leaving my last T and then we slowly started addressing other issues.

btw, what did your name used to be? i forgot.
