BARE YOUR SOUL: Talking to a stripped-down therapist to get to naked truth
The Daily ^ | February 28, 2011 | Justin Rocket Silverman

Posted on 02/28/2011 11:32:49 PM PST by Slings and Arrows

There’s something about a naked woman that can make a man do strange things.

Like discuss his feelings.

That’s the theory, at least, behind “naked therapy,” a new psychoanalytic tool not approved by any professional mental health association, but practiced right now by a 24-year-old New York City woman named Sarah White.

She looks very theraputic.

I think it may not be just a coincidence that this follows yet another Charlie Sheen thread.

I’m afraid she really couldn’t make any progress on my issues until she lost the panties too.

>But there is no physical contact in naked therapy. And, as White points out, “It’s not like I’m having relationships with any of my patients.” <

That’s a deal-breaker for me. For $150, I expect full service..I mean, therapy.

>>“For men in particular, seeing a naked woman can really help them focus, look deeply into themselves and speak their minds openly.” <<

Actually, no. Sweetie, it’s obvious you haven’t been to a strip club before or maybe you’re lying. Men go Charlie Sheen on hot nekkid women.

It’s pretty obvious that that is what she would like to be doing but thinks the therapist gig is giving her some cover of respectability. I wonder if she realizes that she could make more money pole dancing and wouldn’t have had to get a degree to do it?

Plus the sessions utilizes a webcam. Now which self-respecting “psychotherapist” utilizes a webcam unless you want to broadcast the session publicly thru the web. This is just laughable except when she strips though.

Don’t believe in therapy myself (most psych majors are kind of screwy in my experience), but something about her methods is intriguing.

Not sure what...but I wish I could put my finger on it.

That's just the first session or so.

One-hour sessions cost $150, and at first are conducted over webcam. Once a level of trust has been established, patients can book in-person sessions, though the price increases fivefold.

So an in-person session goes up to $750! For that much coin, you can make a lot of single moms very happy at your local "gentleman's club" and deal with a variety of "therapists."
