Sexuality, what do the terminologies mean for us as therapists?

How non-conforming to the normative social narrative affects mental health.
Being theraputically present with consensual non monogamy and familial structures outside of the normative narrative.

Raising awareness of BDSM and hierarchal relationship structures, is it more popular or more open?

If we continue to subscribe to our own selective inattention to GSRD (Gender, sexuality & Relationship diversity) U.P.R is difficult to obtain.
