Professional Therapy NEVER Includes Sex

Fortunately, we have very strict professional guidelines for therapists in this country that are meant to protect patients from harm.  Sometimes therapists can overstep boundaries and cause harm due to their own unresolved issues and problems.

If your therapist EVER suggests sexual contact between the two of you, you should ALWAYS say no and immediately report the incident to the therapist’s licensing board.

The reason for this is that extensive research has led to recognition of the extensive harm that therapist-client sex can produce. Nevertheless, research suggests that perpetrators account for about 4.4% of therapists (7% of male therapists; 1.5% of female therapists) when data from national studies are pooled.

When He’s Married to Mom

Kenneth Adams, Ph.D., author of “Silently Seduced” has just released his second book – “When He’s Married to Mom: How to Help Mother-Enmeshed Men Open Their Hearts to True Love and Commitment” with Alexander P. Morgan.

Excerpt from book – In his unconscious – and sometimes conscious – mind, amother-enmeshed man is representing his mother’s interests, while his own have become secondary. If he does something he thinks she wouldn’t like, he feels disloyal to her. If he “gets serious” about a woman, suddenly, without understanding why, he is overwhelmed with feelings of fear, anxiety, and guilt. Ambivalence and withdrawal inevitably follow.

Sexual Surrogacy

If you struggle with sexual dysfunction or have aversive reactions to sex and have wondered if there are people out there who can help, you may want to consider working with a sexual surrogate. Sex Therapy Los Angeles

According to Tara Livingston, sexual surrogate and sex educator, “By definition a sexual surrogate, or surrogate partner, is a professional who helps clients overcome sexual dysfunction. Most surrogates are women, a few are men and there are also married couples that practice surrogacy together. The general term of sexual surrogacy can involve varying levels of practice. Some surrogates work at counseling centers while others have their own office. Some surrogates offer additional services besides surrogacy such as telephone counseling or sexological bodywork.”
