BEYOND SEX THERAPY
Somatic Sexology is an experiential, embodied and mindful approach to sex therapy. This ground-breaking method of sexual support was founded by Joseph Kramer, Ph.D. in 2003, as a new legal profession.
As defined by The Institute of Somatic Sexology:
“Somatic Sexology™ is somatic, erotic education that assists individuals, couples and groups to deepen their experience of embodiment. Somatic Sexologists are trained sexologists whose certification is approved by the State of California. We offer experiential learning opportunities that consciously access profound ecstatic and erotic states. Our teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breathwork, touch, massage, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.
We teach through body experiences designed to nurture, deepen or awaken the sensual self. These experiences can include coaching in breath, movement, body awareness, boundary-setting, communication, anatomy, sensate focus, massage, erotic trance and other body-based teachings about sex. Uniquely in the professions, we are trained to do genital touch for education, healing, and pleasure. We touch in ways that assist students in developing presence within the body, opening interior awareness, and learning how the body can feel more and more alive.”
