When Katrina Van Tuyl confides in her best friend and college roommate, Meg, that she has some sexual issues, including the fact that she has never been able to climax during intercourse, Meg recommends controversial therapist Paul Ulbrecht, whom Meg has used previously. Paul uses a combination of conventional therapy and sexual surrogacy—with himself serving as the surrogate. Early in her therapy, Kat unexpectedly finds herself having sex with Meg, who’s been openly bisexual since college. Kat acknowledges that she’s bi as well. When Kat tells Paul, his reaction surprises her. After several sessions, he suggests Kat do some research into Dominance and submission. Doing as instructed, under his guidance, she realizes that she’s truly submissive. She asks Paul to train her in D/s and he agrees. As an experienced and imaginative Dom, as well as a therapist, he draws her deeply into his world.
As the action moves from New York City to its affluent suburbs, and to an exotic resort in the Caribbean, Kat finds herself falling in love with Paul. Will her feelings be reciprocated, or is this a purely, if unusual, professional relationship? Just as Kat is introduced into a world she never knew existed, The Sessions will draw readers into an exciting, erotic, and elegant world of Dominance and submission.
