You gotta love L.A. Along with our porn industry and pot shops, we can now lay claim to hosting “the world's first gay male Naked Therapist-in-Training.”

And while in some contexts naked therapy would just be another term for, er, prostitution, in the yoga-infused, hippie world of Los Angeles, it's “client arousal … in order to facilitate deeper insights and discussions,” according to a statement from the man's employer,

Hmm. Deep. Yes, well, you know what this guy's name is, of course:

Randy. Yep. Randy Hastings.

He's not even a licensed gay naked male therapist. Yet. states that he'll have to go through a year of training first.

(Who issues this naked therapy permit? The L.A. Police Commission?).

Anyway, the folks at swear by this kind of therapy, stating:

We need to be comfortable being aroused, and we need to practice making that arousal experience a valuable and insightful, not a banal and degrading, one.

Well, Randy, you're in the right town.
