I felt honored when Tova Feder, PhD asked if I would be willing to be interviewed for this book: Sex Is The Least of It, is available on Kindle and Amazon.com! Soon to be in print!
It reveals the inner story of 25 surrogates lives. Inside and out both professionally and personally. There I tell my story of how I became a sex surrogate partner and why along a few of my favorite success stories!
This has been a long labor of love, bringing the stories of nearly 30 surrogate partners internationally to print.
Since the release of the film The Sessions, the time has finally come for a greater understanding of the importance of holistic sexual health which Sex Surrogate Partners can help provide. I am honored to be interviewed for this book and excited by the positive response it has received so far… hopeful for the future of ‘touch therapy’ and the position it is earning in the role of sex therapy and higher sex education!
Thanks to Tova for taking on this task and thanks to all our readers and participants for making this breakthrough method more accepted and wide-spread! Bringing this vision to fruition so others can learn the true purpose and power of touch therapy. To help educate the public about the invaluable work of surrogate partners and the life-changing benefits of SPTherapy.
The concept of surrogate partners grew out of the work of Masters and Johnson in the mid-1960s. Their initial research centered on understanding and improving the sex lives of married couples. Eventually their work addressed the issue of helping un-partnered individuals treat their sexual dysfunction. As necessity is the mother of invention, they recruited an untrained group of women to aid these single individuals in resolving their sexual problems. Masters and Johnson created a mechanical approach to sexuality, devoid of emotional intimacy.
This book seeks to present the human face of a profession that has been shrouded in myths, misconceptions, and negative judgments. Rather than hearing the words of sexual robots, the participants reflect competence, intelligence, compassion, and wisdom. It is a profession that requires the ability to think and feel; to analyze and participate; to become emotionally involved yet maintain professional boundaries.
Over the past four decades, surrogate partner therapy has grown to combine social therapeutic modalities in addition to sexual therapeutic techniques. This book utilizes, in part, the approach of interviewing 25 current and former surrogate partners to examine, compare, and contrast their experiences. It seeks to present the skills of surrogates as opposed to the sexual sensationalism which clouds objective evaluation of the subject. In addition to the interviews there are several relevant articles and links to documentaries including the one I was in on The Discovery Channel, Strange Sex, being used with permission, exploring the work of other surrogates.
