The true value of pleasure

"A client of mine, [Sister Goddess] Leslie, lives on a fat trust fund. She, therefore, is the 'breadwinner' in the family -- yet she has created her life to totally revolve around her actor husband's job and lifestyle. 

They move when he gets work, not when she desires. Although she could afford full-time help and child care, she wears herself out washing and cooking and cleaning for the three kids. 

Despite her resources, Leslie cannot use what she has because she is deeply invested in the traditional idea of what a woman is. She has lost touch with a deep, powerful truth -- that her pleasure has value and plays a crucial role in her life and the life of her family."
