"Does therapy reach the same vulnerabilities or triggers that physical touch reaches?"
That is the $1,000,000 question. I can't get a handle on why that resonated so true for me when my T said it. A part of it seems "icky", like I don't want to go there. It seems like I'm sexualizing my relationship with my T, which is not true. Feeling vulnerable in sex and in therapy ... that is true. But that is true for everyone, isn't it?
I think it's a little of the "flight or fight" response.
It's a little of "I don't need anyone trying to help me, or tell me what to do."
Hmmmm, stuff for therapy, as usual.
