Exploring the World of Sexological Bodywork: What You Need to Know

Updated: Apr 4

Sexological Bodywork is the body-based sex education you never had. Book sessions with me to explore your needs and desires, release your beliefs and experiences, create new pleasure pathways and discover a deeper connection to yourself and others. We can cover physiology, anatomy, breathwork, foundations of touch, somatic learning, body and genital mapping, consent and boundaries, destigmatizing STIs, ageing and body image, active receiving, genital dearmouring, scar tissue remediation, and masturbation coaching. You can access much of this work online, where you use guided or self-directed touch or with a partner. If we meet in person, I use one-way gloved touch.

I appreciate the explanation that the Association of Certified Sexological Bodyworkers offers...

"Sexological Bodywork is somatic education that assists individuals, couples, and groups to deepen their experience and awareness of their body, eroticism, and sexuality.

Emerald May (she/her). Sexological Bodywork

“Soma” or “Somatic” is ‘of the body.’ It is turning the focus inwards, to the sensations we experience in our bodies, including our tissues, structures, trapped emotions or stories that we hold in our nervous systems which contribute to our habits and how we experience life.

Why do people work with Sexological Bodyworkers?

People work with Sexological Bodyworkers to address specific challenges they are aware of for which they are seeking understanding, acceptance and relief; as well as those who are more broadly looking to explore and expand their own erotic potential.

Sexological Bodyworkers are somatic sex educators who use a client-centered approach to empower, educate, and bring attention to the felt experience through movement, breath, touch, sound, and placement of awareness. This approach facilitates the ability to change limiting habits, unwind and release what is no longer supportive, re-sensitize the body, and create a more expansive erotic state that integrates both body and mind.

What modalities does Sexological Bodywork use?

Emerald May (she/her). Sexological Bodywork

Our teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breathwork, foundations of touch, somatic learning, body and genital mapping, consent and boundaries, active receiving, erotic massage, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and masturbation coaching.

One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to clients is a state of arousal that is free of fantasy, unfinished emotional business, religious dogma, cultural caveats and habitual sexual behaviors. In this meditative state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and freedom. One of the ways to access this fecund state is by actively receiving attentive and mindful erotic touch. Helping others access and make use of a variety of erotic states is foundational to the education we offer."
