"One of the officers was very adamant about telling me that he would never pay me that much for my services."

M: I love meeting different people, I love the psychological aspects. I just have so many fantastic stories, and amazing people that I've met. I saw a guy recently who, after our session he was telling me that his wife had died about six months previous that he had been married to for 42 years, and he started crying. And my mother passed away when I was younger, and so we were able to relate on that. And I gave him my lessons on how I dealt with it, and he had never really had somebody tell him that, and he was very touched. And I know that he will take those lessons that I taught him and use them for his grieving process.

So it's things like that. People don't realize how much therapy it really is, how many of these people just want some intimacy...we're human beings, we need sexual outlets. That's just the way that we are. "Maya" invites anyone who has been in a similar situation or wants to talk to contact her at mayaarticle8719@yahoo.com.
