After each session, the therapist gave himself ten minutes to fasten his goggles for visualising traumas and conflicts and pick out the lingering leftovers that clung to the armchair, lamp and rubber plant. The most interesting traces were, however, the sexual fantasies the patients couldn’t bring themselves to tell him; these hid themselves behind Helen Kaplan’s Illustrated Manual of Sexual Therapy. Once a week, the therapist gathered them together, put them in a bag, and gave them to the owner of the sex shop on the corner.
