Good is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, medical treatment, or therapy.In my neck of the woods the majority of therapists see mainly women (probably about 80% of their clients).Not so for me – more than half my clients are male, and when I work with a couple it is more often the men who initiate conjoint therapy.I think this is because many guys tend to become very uptight about their penis, what Paul Joannides (author of ) calls “deadwood – the bummer in your pants”.Many of the men I work with are concerned about their system crashing when their pants are off!We had one more date, and after that he didn’t call for a month.
