I understand why you felt the need to warn us but you know, regardless of fantasies and desires, it is absolutely the therapist's responsibility to maintain boundaries and protect us. Look at the responses above, many of us would do it in a heartbeat, despite the warning. The therapist is fully culpable in this situation.
Warning people about the potential devastating effects of sexual engagement with their therapists is not the same as relieving therapists of their professional responsibilities. No one here has suggested that the therapist is not fully responsible for maintaining boundaries. Information was given to people to empower them to make the best choices for themselves. Empowering people to do that doesn't take any responsibility away from the therapist.
