Yes. My gf's ex and she used to roleplay Daddy/daughter back when my gf was still presenting as male. It was her gf's idea to play this. However, she was finally triggered to uncover some deeply buried memories of being abused by her father, and then she sought help through meds and therapy. So, BDSM play and traditional therapy can work together. I am not proposing one is superior to another.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
