Los Angeles, California
As I look back on my 15 years of practice as a surrogate partner in sex therapy, I realize how incredibly valuable the work was, not only to the clients I assisted, but for my own use in the years following.
The body of practical knowledge is there to draw on any time a friend has a problem with a sexual component.
Only recently I counseled a young woman who was experiencing painful intercourse with a new partner, and the suggestions were right there on the tip of my tongue. But I think the greatest gift of the work is just now dawning.
I have become a hospice volunteer, and I’m finding one of the best modalities for soothing the dying is touch. With my background that is the easiest thing to do, with confidence that the touch will be administered in the best possible way, and my comfort in doing so will be communicated.
A blessing on every one of the early pioneers who were instrumental in making surrogate work a legitimate occupation.
