Transcript of 94th Session between Charles Balis, M.D. and Ms. Anna Green, Thursday, October 1, 1998 at 4:00 pm.

Ms. Green: Hello, Doctor Balis.
Dr. Balis: Hello, Anna. Please, sit down.
Ms. Green: I'd be happy to, Doctor. I've been feeling like shit again.
Dr. Balis: Sick?
Ms. Green: I somehow managed to get a sinus infection. I've been on antibiotics for four days now.
Dr. Balis: I'm sorry, Anna. You do seem to get sick an awful lot.
Ms. Green: Yeah, well...
Dr. Balis: Are you sleeping any better?
Ms. Green: I still have problems breathing when I'm horizontal, so...
Dr. Balis: Hmm.
Ms. Green: But I've never met anyone more understanding about a sinus infection than Lloyd, the CEO. The man is an angel--he sent me home and told me that a sinus infection guarantees paid sick leave around SII. Can you believe that?
Dr. Balis: Well, actually...
Ms. Green: So I was home Monday and Tuesday. That was nice. I've been working a lot lately and I haven't had much opportunity to wallow in bed. So I got to watch tons of bad afternoon TV. But it did get boring, so I'm back at work.
Dr. Balis: I see. How did your little company field trip go last week?
Ms. Green: Do you mean the Edgewater Adult Resort?
Dr. Balis: How was it?
Ms. Green: It had its moments.
Dr. Balis: Can you be a bit more specific?
Ms. Green: Well, it was a bit different than what we had imagined.
Dr. Balis: How so?
Ms. Green: It was more oriented towards couples than I thought it would be. There were some striptease shows downstairs. There was a full bar. And the show girls interacted with the audience between their performances.
Dr. Balis: Go on.
Ms. Green: I guess that's all very typical.
Dr. Balis: Yes?
Ms. Green: The weird part was going around the hotel in a group, watching couples doing it. I'm sure some of it was staged. But there were regular people who just got off on being watched.
Dr. Balis: How were you able to see...
Ms. Green: Some places, there were one way mirrors. The people on the other side knew they were being seen but they didn't know by whom and when.
Dr. Balis: Hmm.
Ms. Green: Sometimes, we could just look through an open door. That was a bit uncomfortable.
Dr. Balis: Why?
Ms. Green: There was a mob of us just outside the door. And we were pushing and looking over each other's shoulders. It was very strange. It wasn't very erotic for me. It didn't feel like we were looking in, it was more...I don't know. It wasn't like real voyeurism.
Dr. Balis: I see.
Ms. Green: Then there was the garden area. There was a pool and a hot spa. Some people were having sex by the pool. And there were some pretty naked girls wondering about--they were part of the staff. There was a lesbian show by the pool, too. It was also staged. Well, I'm pretty sure it was staged.
Dr. Balis: Did this make you feel uncomfortable?
Ms. Green: No, it was fine. It was much better then the open door deal. Oh, and all the curtains were up on the windows. We could look into the rooms and see what people were doing there. That felt more like real voyeurism to me. There were guests who kept their windows open, and there were performers who did a strip act in front of open windows.
Dr. Balis: Hmm.
Ms. Green: We were all consenting adults, Doctor. It never felt wrong. There were things that felt awkward, but not wrong.
Dr. Balis: So overall...
Ms. Green: I'm glad that place exists. It clearly serves its purpose, just like S&M clubs serve theirs.
Dr. Balis: I agree.
Ms. Green: But it wasn't right the way we went.
Dr. Balis: Why?
Ms. Green: It was specifically geared for couples. A large group like ours was welcome, but the place wasn't set up to accommodate us.
Dr. Balis: What do you mean?
Ms. Green: The place was all about participation. And, as a group, we couldn't do that.
Dr. Balis: I see.
Ms. Green: We watched, but we didn't do much more than that. If I ever go back there again, it would be with a lover.
Dr. Balis: So you found it erotic?
Ms. Green: Sure. We all did. Martin kept talking about the place all the way home. He thinks there's a lot of money in setting up a place like that but with an S&M touch. I think he might be right. A lot more people are into watching than doing.
Dr. Balis: A voyeuristic S&M resort?
Ms. Green: Don't you think it would be good?
Dr. Balis: Perhaps.
Ms. Green: And with this sinus infection, it's been really difficult. I'm not good at taking antibiotics. I get a yeast infection right away.
Dr. Balis: That's very common. The antibiotic kills the good bacteria along with the bad. Eat some yogurt.
Ms. Green: I've heard that works, but I prefer to take this little magic pill that wipes out the yeast infection in a few days.
Dr. Balis: Whatever works for you, Anna.
Ms. Green: But it does take a few days. Well, so much for sex.
Dr. Balis: Hmm?
Ms. Green: Well, intercourse is painful, and oral sex and sinus infections don't go well together--breathing problems, you know?
Dr. Balis: Who are you having sex with, Anna?
Ms. Green: Well...
Dr. Balis: It's Martin, isn't it?
Ms. Green: We did it just to take the edge off.
Dr. Balis: Anna...
Ms. Green: Don't be angry with me, Doctor Bails. Really, we are not back together again. We are just having sex. It's not a bad idea. Just listen for a second...
Dr. Balis: Anna...
Ms. Green: I know he's safe--I'm not risking my life to have sex with him. He knows we are not going to get back together over this. And this way, I'm not motivated by my body's need to have sex. I'm free to look around until I find someone I really like, and not someone who just turns me on because I haven't had sex for over six months. It's not a bad decision, Doctor. Really. Don't look at me like that. Please?
Dr. Balis: Anna, you know what I'm going to say. It's a bad idea. You're...
Ms. Green: We won't do it a lot. I promise. We'll just relieve the tension, and that's it.
Dr. Balis: I hope you're hearing how all of this sounds.
Ms. Green: I agree, it's not great. But you understand, right?
Dr. Balis: No, I think it's a very bad idea. In fact, I think Martin shouldn't be staying with you. Are you still worried about being attacked by Kathy's abductor?
Ms. Green: Well...
Dr. Balis: Then there is no real reason for Martin to stay with you, is there?
Ms. Green: I don't know what's going on with Kathy's investigation. But that doesn't mean that I'm out of danger. My dad thinks I'm not. He thinks the police should be watching my house and protecting me. But they aren't. So having Martin around does make me feel safer.
Dr. Balis: I...
Ms. Green: Maybe I should go. We can talk about this next week, after you have a chance to think about it more. You're just overreacting right now, Doctor. Okay?
Dr. Balis: I'm not overreacting...
Ms. Green: See? I'll see you next week. Goodbye.
Dr. Balis: Anna? All right, I'll see you next week.
