“My hands had `always enjoyed making and creating things. So when it came to intimacy why did they suddenly seem so clumsy? The truth is that none of us are taught about pleasure, we just try our best. Life’s challenges can make it more difficult for some of us, but believe me, given the right guidance and tools it really is possible to experience mind-blowing pleasure throughout life.

No one in my life had ever discussed sex with me in terms of orgasm, arousal or pleasure (outside of the technical aspects of intercourse). It wasn’t until my early 30’s that I finally met someone that was able to give me a safe space to explore and experiment with pleasure. This new experience was liberating and it fuelled my interest. A Teacher Training course had introduced me to the benefits of experiential learning and regular practice to master complex skills, such as driving a car or playing a musical instrument.  Given this knowledge, I started to wonder if a similar approach could be used to improve someone’s experience of pleasure.

My curiosity and yearning to understand pleasure fueled my interest in intimacy and sexuality, so much so that I changed my career path. By my late-thirties I had already helped many people, but unfortunately for me the “Erotic Formula” still felt like a mystery. Then I stumbled upon Somatic Sex Education  and my prayers were finally answered. Following three months of conscious practice I was finally able to experience pleasure. This journey has been transformational and life-changing for me and is a beautiful wisdom that I am eager to share with others.”
