Steven’s new psychiatrist has had a very successful practice for many years according to the many pictures and accolades around his office
Steven sat down in the handsomely worn brown leather couch, appreciating the firm cushioning which supports his back and prevents him from sinking into the cushion.
After writing in a notebook, Jerry Lieber, MD, looks up at Steven and introduces himself and what Steven could expect as a patient.
After the introduction and testing of Steven for basic cognition and memory, Lieber asks what brings Steve to his office.
Taking a deep breath, Steven closes his eyes and declares, “I am a demisexual.”
“For me, while I can identify men & women who are attractive, my priority is an emotional connection with one or a very few.”
“If I become very close to one person, male or female, then I might want to further explore the friendship in any combination of romantic and sexual ways.”
“However, the last part of my sexual orientation manages to bring home to me how much of a freak I am.”
“While sex is an act between two people ideally pleasing each other, I only have an interest in pleasing the person I became intimate.”
“I have no interest in receiving anything other than the satisfaction of pleasing my significant other. I don’t know why.”
“As I have matured, I have resolved to the fact I will always be alone because my orientation, my appearance, and general failures in life make me feel disgusting.”
“Im so tired of being alone.”
