Channing was going to his new therapist for the first time since the Jenna split. It had been rough on him, and since Jenna was busy filming World of Dance Season 2, he was stuck with the kids for most of the week. He was relieved when his session finally came around, even if it was a new guy. He knew his good friend Luke Evans had gone to him yesterday, and he said he worked wonders.
Channing was a bit hesitant walking in. His old therapist knew a whole lot more stuff about him, including the specific reasons why his marriage fell apart. Chris then walked into their office.
“Oh, sorry, Hollywood traffic,” they said. “It can be a real bitch sometimes. Just give me a second to get ready.”
A couple minutes later, Channing was sitting across from Chris.
“Before we start, did my previous therapist transfer my paperwork over?”
“He did. I couldn’t get through all of it, but I definitely read his abstract. Now, is this session about your split?”
“That’s never come up before in therapy.”
“Channing, it’s public news. I’m just here to help you get through it.”
“Okay, doc. Whatever you say.”
“What seems to be the reason for your split?”
“There were a lot of factors, but one we didn’t want to reveal publicly was our lack of a sex life recently.”
“Was that due to scheduling, or you two didn’t want to have sex?”
“The second one, but it was moreso Jenna than me. She’s been a lot more busier than me recently.”
“I see. So, is sex important to you, as a man?”
“Fuck yeah! I haven’t had it in over a month, as the kids aren’t old enough yet to figure out why Daddy has a new girl in the house.”
“Interesting. So, if you were to have no sex drive, would that be beneficial to you?”
“At this point and time, yes. But, how would you go about that?”
“Hypnosis, Channing. Did you read the email I sent you?”
“It’s very simple. I’ll put you under, and replace your sex drive with hobbies. You should still masturbate, though. Health effects of that, especially at your age, means it is not something to be stopped.”
“Whatever you say, doc.” Channing laid down, and Chris began speaking.
“I want you to relax. Close your eyes, and listen to my voice. You are getting sleepy. You enjoy the sound of my voice. You want to listen to my voice. You want to obey my voice. Channing, I will now count backwards from 5. When I reach 1, you will be completely under my control, and open your eyes.
“5, you are starting to go under.
“4, you’re getting deeper.
“3, I control you now.
“2, no one else matters but me.
“1, I am your master.”
Channing’s eyes fluttered open, and Chris saw the orange.
“Channing, have you ever participated in gay sex before?”
“No, but I saw most of my cast mates from Magic Mike nude.”
“Did that do anything to you, internally?”
“I realized that I didn’t have the biggest cock in the room. Joe did.”
“Nice to know. Channing, you now identify as gay.”
“I am now gay.”
“Good. Your sex drive will increase, and you will feel comfortable bringing men over. You will tell your children that they are Daddy’s friends.”
“You will also become a stripper again, at an nude club. This will be in addition to any acting gigs you have coming up.”
“I will have a side job as a stripper.”
“Yes, you will. When I say wake up, you will do so, and not have any conscious memory of this session. Your subconscious will remember everything, though. And you will be fine being nude around me, but only in my office. I lock this in with the phrase, ‘Burnt baby powder’. Wake up.”
Channing’s eyes fluttered, and the orange went away. “Did it work, doc?”
“Oh, it did. You won’t be fucking girls any time soon. So, would you like another session this week, or continue weekly?”
“Weekly is fine.”
“Okay. See you next week, and remember to get dressed.” Channing was unfazed by that comment, as he should be, and left Chris’ office. As he walked to his car, he set up a reminder to look for stripper jobs.
