It's probably not a good idea to push it if he feels uncomfortable with physical contact. I suppose this must vary a lot between therapists, but those are his boundaries. Mine once said we could do a session naked if I wanted. I don't remember how the conversation turned to that topic. 'Rebirth' or 'Primal Scream' therapy I think, but a lot of her techniques were way out there, so I guess it goes with the territory. I am male, but a gay one, and I think she knew that. I suppose that's one reason why she might have been more comfortable with things like that? I'm not sure. I can't see her suggesting this to any Tom, Dick or Harry, but I could be wrong. She was a college counselor too.

I'm starting to realize what an intimate relationship I had with my T compared to some here, though I didn't think anything of it at the time. I even went to her house on one occasion. She drove me there for a session because I wanted to ritually burn an effigy that I'd made. The college Health & Safety guidelines prohibited that kind of thing, so we figured her back yard would be a better place. What type of therapy are you having? Mine was a humanistic counselor, and I think they are well known for being more informal than some other approaches.
