It happens often that I will meet a client who says to me “I thought I was the only one who…”.
It is counter intuitive that in this age of “connectedness”, via social media, phone, Zoom et al that people can still be left feeling that their situation and problems and challenges are unique.
But it’s true. And time and time again people tell me that they read a post on my website that included a story from someone I have met and in it they saw themselves – or an aspect of their lives – and in seeing that they realised that there was hope to change their situation and have a better, healthier life and (usually) sex life.
The reality is that although we are hyper connected through smart phones and the Internet – it is generally a superficial connection. We see the curated version of our friends and families lives. Not the hard realities of managing relationships. Of loneliness. Of bad sex. Or no sex. Of our inner conflicts over what we want versus what society tells us we can have.
It’s only when you dig deeper into the Internet (and end up somewhere like my website) that you start to find the stories of people who are prepared to share their real selves. And when you find that there is a chance to see yourself reflected and find validation of something that you may have been carrying for years with shame, or guilt, or sadness.
You are not the only one who has never kissed another person.
You are not the only woman who can’t orgasm easily – or at all.
You are not the only one who likes anal play or sex.
You are not the only person who doesn’t need to be in love to enjoy sex with another person.
You are definitely not the only person who is bi – or feels conflicted or excluded because of it.
You are not the only person who is bored of sex with their partner.
You are not the only person who wants a better sex life and is asking “should I book a straight male escort?”. The answer to that is “maybe” – but I’m happy to talk to you if you have questions about the services that male escorts for women provide and help to allay any fears you may have over privacy and safety.
Just what I needed to read today. Thank you.
I’m glad it helped you Erica. Thank you for your comment.
