Whether you are a male or female therapist, if you are consistently receiving advances, suggestions, or comments of a sexual nature from any gender, it's high time for you to evaluate yourself, your work, and all forms of verbal/non-verbal/written/environmental/emotional/energetic communication used to see if maybe there is something that is attracting this type of client or unconsciously initiating these actions.

Yes, sometimes it's unavoidable and always upsetting and disturbing when it happens, but to automatically assume that an entire gender acts a certain way after you witness a handful of scenarios is incredulous. That's like saying all Russians are spies, all San Franciscans are gay, all Americans are dumb, or all Republicans think global warming is a myth. Simply incredulous.

:iagree: Yes, that!

I haven't had a client come on to me in years, and I work in a community with a high degree of interest in and acceptance of massage with a sexual component. I eventually learned how not to be of interest to folks looking for that.

Just to let you know, I've quoted you on this in conversation. I've also used a variant of this for men who feel that it's "improper" to receive a THERAPEUTIC (I can't stress that word enough) massage from woman. I don't know how many minds it's changed, but it's made people think. :smt001
