Sexological bodywork is an educational technique or therapy for learning about sex. Sexological bodywork is focused around practical exercises designed to help people discover their own erotic potential.
Sexological bodywork professionals, known as sexological bodyworkers work with individual clients, couples, or small groups, leading them through exercises designed to help their clients learn how they receive and how they can give pleasure.
More About Sexological Bodywork
Sexological bodywork sessions can involve a number of different activities including breath work, touch and erotic massage, conscious movement exercises, pelvic release bodywork, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga instruction.
Advocates of sexological bodywork suggest that to really learn something, you must experience it. Reading a book about sex or watching erotic acts will only take you so far. They suggest that to truly discover your own erotic capabilities, you must undergo the physical exercises that make up sexological bodywork.
Sexological bodyworkers are trained sexologists who often have government-approved certification. All touch they provide is invited and consensual. This consent can be withdrawn at any time. Sexological bodyworkers typically stay clothed during sessions and wear gloves for any genital contact.
People may see a sexological bodyworker for a number of reasons. These include suffering from sexual disorders, such as premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction, or simply struggling to orgasm. They may not accept their body or sexuality or want to learn about something new, such as how to receive anal pleasure. Couples may see a sexological bodyworker to improve their sex life or get it back on track after a significant event like childbirth or a mastectomy.
Through sexological bodywork, people can learn to become more present during sex, become more giving lovers, improve their connections to their partners, and let go of their sexual hang-ups.
