The Importance of Pleasure

So many of my clients are victims of mental, verbal, physical and/or sexual abuse. Often part of the healing process is reconnecting with the body and defining pleasure. In my office I often hear “What is pleasure,” “I can’t feel my body,” and “I feel so numb.” When there is an assault to the body or psyche in any way, an individual must heal this space. I recently watched The Principles of Pleasure on Netflix. I appreciate the research presented, the topic of discussion, and the overall discussion this series attempts to address. Although not all shows like this are perfect, I think it can foster discussions, open a space for a conversation concerning a topic that is often taboo or simply not talked about. I have included the trailer below.
