…once you decide there are no rules — rejecting all moral standards so that everything is acceptable — it becomes impossible to say that any “relationship” is wrong or harmful, so long as its consensual. Has someone violated your consent? Call the cops, not a therapist. If nothing is ever wrong, then any unhappiness you experience with your non-binary kinky polygamous partner(s) is entirely your problem. What’s the use of seeing a marriage and family therapist in such a situation? She’s going to counsel you and your partner(s) on how to make your basement BDSM dungeon experiences more pleasurable?
Becoming a licensed marriage and family therapist in California is so easy that even people who are against marriage can do it, as is the case of “sex-positive” therapist Moushumi Ghose. She has a “private practice specializing in sexuality, alternative relationships and lifestyles including kink, polyamory, gender non-binary, lgbt and more.” Not sure what the “and more” might include, but Ms. Ghose identifies as “queer” and has written at length of her opposition to monogamy, so she is theoretically in favor of anything except normal heterosexual relationships.
Do people practicing “alternative relationships and lifestyles including kink, polyamory,” etc., have much need for licensed therapists? And if so, what goes on in such therapy sessions?
