Joking... (triggers) zazenducke

Sure, out of context that might sound inappropriate. But the way it was said, the obvious joking quality to it - the long standing history between us - made it the right thing to say. And wow - you made a big leap there - not knowing me, or my therapist that he'd want to have sex with me and that he needs supervision.

And wanting to have sex with your therapist, particularly if you've had painful sexual abuse, is not unusual. There are times that I want him to teach me that it doesn't have to hurt. We talk about these feelings and he is super clear that this will never happen, I'm safe to want and express anything - his job is to hold the line. He has always done so and I trust him completely with that. Sometimes I'm sad and furious about that. Other times I'm relieved.

I don't know what your history with therapy is - or even if you have one - but I suspect you think about it very differently than I do. I'm glad there are many kinds of therapists and therapies, so we can both get what we need.
