I didn't say it was. I just wanted to make it clear, that regardless of our fantasies and what we might want (or think we want), it's ultimately the responsibility of the therapist to maintain boundaries. I suppose I was worried that the op might be blaming themselves on some level... because they talk about being warned etc.
