> And here I am, *wishing* that my therapist would've had sex with me, lol!

That is a very normal reaction in therapy. Perhaps he's the first man who has takent the time to really get to know you. Perhaps it's the first time you have felt safe enough to open yourself up completely to a man.

This is all part of the healing process. The hope is that you can find this out in the world as a result of the treatment with another man.

Also, it would not be a good idea for a therapist to share everything about a treatment plan or style. There is such a thing as transference...what the client feels or thinks and projects onto the therapist. This is very important and necessary for the therapeutic process. It would ruin the entire therapy to explain all of the transferences and counter transferences...

Therapy is the place to be bowled over like you've never been bowled over before. That way when it happens in the outter world (outside the office) the client has the ability to deal with the feelings in a more adaptive manner....
