Eileen and her husband Bob went for counselling after 25 years of
When asked what the problem was, Eileen went into a passionate, painful
tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 25 years they had
been married. She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness,
loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of
unmet needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.
Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time,
the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking Eileen to
stand, embraced her, unbuttoned her blouse and bra, put his hands on
her breasts and massaged them thoroughly, while kissing her
passionately as her husband Bob watched with a raised eyebrow.
Eileen shut up, buttoned up her blouse, and quietly sat down while
basking in the glow of being highly aroused.
The therapist turned to Bob and said, 'This is what your wife needs at
least three times a week. Can you do this?' Bob thought for a moment and replied,
'Well I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays but on Fridays I play golf.”
