Therapy recap

Me: “How do I get over all this weirdness I have about sex?”

The Wonder Therapist: “Have sex.”

Both of us laughing.

I think that’s just about the most bizarre conversation I’ve ever had with my therapist, but I suspect she’s right. Just like everything else, the only way over is through.

  1. In the hope of not sounding insensitive, that’s spot on, and pretty much what I’ve done. i was seriously anxious (putting it mildly) and actually just doing It helped more than I could have imagined. It is and was still hard to do, but becomes easier and easier. I think that’s normal really, building up trust with someone bit by bit.

  2. Hi Lola, not at all insensitive. I know she’s right. Just like facing my fears with a whole lot of other things. It’s just nerve wracking… terrifying in fact. I’m really glad things have got easier for you on that front. 🙂

  3. Yeah, that is the way … with the subtext of course, of “Have (mutually consensual, emotionally safe, mutually respectful, physically safe) sex (that you know you can say no to).”

    Just “any” sex won’t do the trick. 🙂

  4. ^^ Completely agree with David. So happy you’re having that can’t-get-enough-of-you relationship. That feeling of getting to know someone inside and out (not a sex reference, LOL) is exciting 🙂

  5. @ David – yes, of course, I’m guessing the Wonder Therapist assumed that would be the case. She would never advocate for the alternative!

    @ Sanity – I’m not sure it’s yet at “can’t get enough”, but probably fairly close. It’s good and bad and fun and scary all at the same time.
