Dear Shh, Thank you for sending this. Eroticism in the transference is a powerful influence on how therapy proceeds. Left unaddressed it limits progress. Addressed it releases blocking energy and frees both the therapist and client to work more deeply. It takes trust and courage and willingness to take a calculated risk while all the negative self talk clamors, "Don't do it. The consequences will be terrible." It may be that people can't "find the guts to raise" this issue because they haven't healed enough yet and/or haven't developed a strong therapeutic bond yet to be capable of taking that calculated risk. Again, thank you for writing this before my presentation deadline. What you share is very helpful.
