Ever had secret thoughts about a counsellor? Fitness trainer? Ever put two and two together? Therapy Rapture does just that, skillfully blurring the boundaries between fantasy and reality.
The accompanying poems deal with aspects of romantic sensuality, with some emphasis on the aesthetics of disrobing and the relation between swimming and sex. They have been featured in several anthologies produced by Forward Press in the UK, and three of them, ''Bathing Girl'', ''Beach Girl'', and ''Lovers Undress'', are on the internet. The story, the poems, the illustrations set out to explore the erotic with delicacy, refinement, and sensitivity.

Wow, this book is so passionate. From the beautiful shorts, poetry, artwork, and even the cover. There's something about it that speaks to the soul. It touches a subject that is so taboo, but manages to do it in a way that connects the readers.
I love the flow of prose and images. The artwork ties things together in a fun way that I really enjoyed.
Although it's short, it's definitely powerful. I'd recommend this book for anyone that enjoys exploring things that we commonly think about, but don't want to admit.
