Sex & Sensuality: Where The Nun & The Prostitute Agree
A former Buddhist nun weighs in on insights on sexuality & sensuality from a Nevada prostitute

Truth can come to us in many ways, through many voices, in many forms. During the Anderson show, Ms. St. James said that she is going back to school to become a therapist. I, for one, hope she realizes that goal, that she finds a way to truly express the wisdom of her insights, that she is able to remove herself from being a part of the suffering that comes with the betrayal of a committed relationship.

So this former nun does agree in essence with the prostitute's insight. As Ms. St. James so clearly expressed, what is called for is an increased awareness of what so many seem to have lost sight of — the true nature of the joys and desires for sensuality in a committed relationship. By working through obstacles — sexual, emotional, spiritual — a couple can reap the heart-opening rewards of intimacy available in the beauty and hard work of a committed partnership.

Working with her husband and sex addiction expert George Collins at Compulsion Solutions counseling center, Paldrom counsels individuals and couples across the country.
