Sex Therapist Reveals She Engages In Intimate Relationships With Clients To Repair Troubled Marriages

Olivia Bentley, a sex therapist, adopts a hands-on approach by engaging in intimate relationships with her clients, claiming to have positively impacted marriages and transformed lives, per The Post.  “I get physically involved with the majority of the people I see, I think that’s part of the appeal,” the “veteran” sex worker told Kennedy News. With 15 years of experience in the industry, Bentley revealed that women have approached her to demonstrate “demo sex acts” on their husbands, while certain wives give their partners a “hall pass” to seek Bentley’s services. “Some ladies say, ‘I don’t always want to be involved in this but I want to know who you are, I want to approve of you and I’m going to let him come and see you,’” the 46-year-old sex educator, who makes $500,000 annually for her services, stated. When she’s not in the bedroom, Bentley, who has a client load of up to 10 per week, provides emotional support to her customers and offers advice on how to maintain a satisfying sex life. “People are usually nervous so I have to do my job at making them feel very comfortable and easing them into it, I’m kind of like the guide,” noting that she wants the women to “feel very confident and comfortable,” she told the outlet. “I’m very affectionate physically and emotionally towards the wife always. If she’s feeling very good, then the mood is elevated and we have a really good time and the husband is very grateful for the experience.” Although Bentley may not possess formal “counseling qualifications,” she holds a master’s degree in education and gained knowledge about intimate techniques during her employment at Nevada’s Moonlite BunnyRanch, a licensed brothel. As a self-proclaimed sex therapist, she criticizes women who deny their partners’ sexual needs, deeming it unfair. “I know there are a lot of sexless relationships out there and there are a lot of unhappy men,” she said. Bentley claims that her male clients have expressed that their sex lives have gone, “out the door,” after a few years of marriage. “It’s not an option to get married to a man and then turn around and say, ‘Oh, sorry, I’m not into sex anymore, too bad for you,’” she said. Additionally, Bentley advises her clients to keep it “spicy” outside of the bedroom by maintaining a fit physique which contributes to a fiery sex life. She believes that physical fitness has the potential to enhance libido. “The more athletic you are, the more sex you want to have — you feel more confident and aroused,” explained Bentley, a fitness enthusiast herself. “Couples who have sessions with me are the coolest in the world because they understand the importance of sexuality in their relationship as a part of maintaining a healthy marriage,” Bentley said applauding her clients for their “bravery” in establishing a healthy sex life.  #Clique, what are your thoughts?

Unfortunately, death has come too soon for one happily married couple. On June 19th, Johnnie Mae Davis went from happy wife to grieving widow “within a 10-minute span” after her husband, Toraze Davis, unexpectedly died from a fatal blood clot shortly after their wedding nuptials, reports The New York Post. “Toraze suffered from a medical event that was not survivable,” wedding guest, Jewel Roberson, told Des Moines, Iowa’s KCCI News. Davis died at 48. “His heart stopped for the first time at 4:35 p.m. — just an hour after the ceremony had begun,” Roberson stated. Also, she added that the harrowing incident happened suddenly. “In a second. It happened within seconds.”  The Omaha, Nebraska couple chose the 19th as their wedding day in honor of Juneteenth and Johnnie’s Mae’s grandmother’s birthday.  Relatives and friends mentioned that the newlyweds were excited to celebrate their union last week, especially since the family has recently suffered two back-to-back deaths, including the passing of Johnnie Mae’s father.  “It was the happiest day of Toraze’s life. I could just see the smile on his face and how happy he was,” mentioned Monica Miller, a coworker of Johnnie Mae at ECO Supportive Living.  “It [was] just his energy. I just knew that it was a great day for him,” Miller continued. Following Davis’ death, Miller launched a $100,000 GoFundMe campaign to help raise “burial expenses for Toraze and money to help the new bride with their children.” Over $22,000 has been raised as of Tuesday.  Additionally, a homecooked food delivery service called Meal Train and donations through ECO Supportive Living have been set up on behalf of the widow and her surviving family.
