Naked therapist

'Naked therapist' bares all for patients -- literally


MANILA, Philippines - Sarah White, a 24-year-old psychology graduate, believes that the "power of arousal" can help people gain more control over their lives.






She is the woman behind "naked therapy," a new kind of "treatment" that is slowly gaining popularity -- particularly among males -- in New York.


In hour-long sessions via the Internet, White converses with her clients and tries to solve their problems while slowly taking off her clothes.


Toward the end of the session, she is completely naked.


"Instead of the cold, objective, impersonal demeanor of the traditional therapist, you encounter me, just as I am with nothing to hide. And as a result you feel closer to me, less inhibited around me, and by being turned on you're able to discover things you might not with a clothed therapist," White wrote in her website, sarahwhitelive.com.


She added, "So like massage therapy uses massage, psychotherapy uses psychology, and aromatherapy uses scents, naked therapy uses nakedness to feel freer and stronger and healthier and happier."


Clients who are 18 years old and above get to schedule a "consultation" with White via her website, sarahwhitelive.com, with each session worth $100 to $150.


The first 3 sessions are done via one-way private web camera and text chat, which may be followed by voice chat.


Mail Online reported that White currently has around 30 clients which are "an eclectic mix of college students with sexual issues, middle-aged men with relationship problems and even some women who enjoy a chat with a nude peer."


Aside from psychology, White said she is also into modeling, photography and computer programming or coding, among others.


She was voted as one of the Top Ten Sexiest Geeks of 2010 of Wired.com, an American online technology magazine.


Soft porn?


Not surprisingly, White's new approach to treating patients had its share of negative feedback, particularly from professional psychologists.


Among them is New York-based clinical psychologist Diana Kirschner, who told the Daily News (as mentioned in an article published on Mail Online) that White's so-called treatment is nothing but "interactive soft-core Internet porn."


Currently, White is not a licensed therapist since any sexual interaction with patients is considered unethical by the American Psychoanalytic Association.


White admitted that naked therapy may not be for everyone, but maintained that it is a "very effective way to get men to open up."


"It's not for everyone. But for some people, naked therapy as experienced by my clients has been very eye-opening and world-opening to them," she said in an interview with Daily News.




There's also the concern that people may take advantage of White and spread her photos and videos online. The naked therapist, however, stressed that she has come prepared.


For one, clients or other people are not allowed to record any of their consultations with White. They are also required to "behave properly" during sessions.


"I will be making a full recording of the session and if it shows up anywhere online, I will know who has propagated it, and I will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law," she said.


She ended, "I like to have fun, but these are professional services. If I feel you are out of line, acting disrespectfully or cruelly towards me, I will warn you that if you continue that behavior I will terminate the session. And if you don't stop that behavior, I will terminate the session and your payment will not be refunded."

I believe I could have worked through my problems faster had I gone to counseling with her.

or probably encounter another trouble with your finance, being online everyday for the whole month :D


For a second, I thought you said, "trouble with your fiancee", which could also be true. :lol:

Yeah, I don't really get it. Why pay $100 to see a pretty attractive girl take her gear off when you can access free porn anywhere and everywhere on the net? I'm not sold at all.


As for the whole psychology aspect, I doubt that talking to yourself whilst watching porn is really that much less effective than what is described above.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).
