Julie, a 28-years-old woman, is referred by her GP because of depression and suicidal thoughts. Life seems too painful to be lived, and she is quite sure to commit suicide within a year. Nevertheless, she would like to have sex, but she did not succeed yet. That is why she accepted the referral to a psychotherapist who is also a sexologist. She explains her sexual problem wording as follows: “I am stuck with sex. I want to do it, but I feel disgusted about sexual intercourse. I am still a virgin. I can flirt, I can have some foreplay, but then I feel rigid with my body, and my mind turns off”. She feels great need of help and thinks she can trust the therapist. She wants to get a chance to solve her sexual problem before she dies.
