Therapists who perform marital and sex therapy often become “vanilla-ized” by conservative and moralistic values espoused by the psy- chotherapy industry. Through a series of permissive group inductions attendees will reconnect with their erotic self. They will also engage in future foreplay regarding potential erotic selves. By more fully experiencing the erotic self, therapists will be more effective in working with sexually diverse clients who desire consensual BDSM, kink, fetish, and multi-partner experiences.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list (privately) two past personal erotic predilections that you would like to experience again.
  2. To list two ways in which openness to your own erotic self will make your sex therapy more effective.
