SO ladies and gentleman…(pause for dramatic effect).. you’re about to wander into The Badger cave.
This program brought to you by Honey badger Radio. In the badger cave, we’ll be interviewing noted authors amongst the Honey badger crew, some who you may know from their blogs, numerous interviews, speaking events and articles. Others who you may not be familiar with. On this program we’ll be discussing pivotal or new articles written by the badgers in order to keep you up to date with their latest work.
Tonight’s show: The Naked Brainwasher, written by our own ever charming Kristal Garcia. In this article she writes about the oh so scandalous therapist, Sarah White. A self reported former sex worker turned mental health professional. Is she an exhibitionist looking for a private audience, or a therapist seeking an intimate session? How many Freudian slips are expected as we oooh-la-la-la our way into the mind of the naked therapist? Don’t worry, this is a safe place.
I am your host, the Observing Libertarian saying: Prepare yourselves as we venture into The Badger Cave.
This show will broadcast live on 10-29-2014 at 8pm Eastern.

At least a few of the badgers have already talked about how sex is often an emotional outlet for men. If this is the case then it does not seem unreasonable to posit that men would tend to be more open in an aroused state.
Male arousal is much more of a taboo than female arousal, I believe partially because it tends to be more visually obvious, and additionally because male sexuality has been thoroughly demonized for the last 50 or so years.
A mental health therapist who embraces male sexuality and arousal like this could very well be beneficial for men in the long run.
I question her expertise as a mental health professional, but then again, I do that for lots of mental health professionals who DON’T strip naked during sessions.
Another concern would be how media would report on this, I imagine this kind of therapy will probably be depicted as little more than expensive cam-shows in a fancy disguise, for easily duped and perpetually horny men.
Reading through the site, I’m still not sure that’s not what it is.
As far as I can tell she has a bachelors in biology, and talks a lot of colourful prose about the conflict between men’s essence and their inhibitions, that at the same time sounds perfectly true and reasonable but also like most other bullshit sales pitches.
If someone is going to really get men, I don’t think it’s too far off for that person to be one who routinely deals with men both at their basest and most intimate levels as well as engaging them intellectually and emotionally.
I don’t know if she really “gets” men, I’m pretty sure she doesn’t “get” them quite as well as she thinks she does, but it’s obvious that she “gets” us a fair deal better than the average woman or therapist.
I’m not sure how I feel about her likening her methods to a sort of tantric treatment for men as I see that as a similarly over-hyped type of therapy, it’s pretty much paying someone to do your masturbation for you with some scented candles and oils, and then calling it a spiritually enlightening journey/experience, in stead of admitting that you went to a prostitute to get off.
At least it’s not as dumb as paying someone to squeeze certain parts of your feet to stimulate the “Ley lines” in your body and cure your headache, high blood pressure, nicotine cravings etc.
