"Ex-Gay" Therapist/Life Coach
Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality (JONAH)
Dear Mr. Downing,
It can't be easy being a reparative therapist. Unlike other professions, the outcome of your work is not easily apparent. Physicians can point to a walking former patient as evidence of a successfully treated femur fracture. All you can do is say you cured a man's homosexualism, and any homosexual-like acts he may perform in the future will be asexual attempts to give or receive nourishment or relieve gastric distress.
Of course, you can also rely on testimonials from former patients or from others who've undergone treatments similar to those you offer. I may be able to provide you with the latter.
Here's how two of your former patients described your treatment sessions:
“He was encouraging me, ‘it’s okay Ben, you can take your shirt off’…here was a man that was much older than me, and I was around 20,” said Ben Unger, a former client of Alan Downing. “At that point, I was just staring at a mirror with my shirt off and he was right behind me staring at the mirror with me at my body. Then telling me to look at my body and feel my body. It was weird.”I've conducted a similar therapy upon myself all my life and it's made me the 110% heterosexualist man I am today. It was basically the same method your patients described. I'd get naked and aggressively touch my parts, and, man, if the A-Team was on, I'd really go to town--the whole warrior thing would send me into a rubbing and pulling frenzy. And often I'd start screaming "I pity the fool" and getting 1.25 to 2 strokes a syllable. Can you believe it--two strokes a syllable--that's therapy on steroids!
“While I was standing there without my clothes on, he asked me to touch my genitals,” says former Downing client Chaim Levin. “Once again, I communicated that I was not comfortable with it. And he was like, you know, ‘just feel yourself. Just feel it for a second. So, you can grasp your masculinity physically.’"
Please feel free to use my story as a testimonial for your work.
Gen. JC Christian,
P.S. This also looks like a promising technique.
