WATCH: Why You Should Join Us on a 30-Day Orgasmic Yoga Journey

May 7, 2016

Clinical Sexologist Dr. Martha Tara Lee hosted Jon Gosling and myself for a discussion on Orgasmic Yoga. What is Orgasmic Yoga? How has it changed our lives? Why do we recommend people do it? How can people do it?   About Jon Gosling Jon Gosling sees himself a “Body Awakener” he supports people to connect with themselves through the body rather than experiencing primarily through the conditioned mind. He works with…


Practice Makes Practice: What I Learned from Six Weeks of Orgasmic Yoga

April 7, 2016

First, let me explain a bit about what Orgasmic Yoga is:  Orgasmic Yoga (OY) – as I have done it, and my experience of it – is not “actual” yoga. The term “yoga” in this context was originally used by the creators of this practice to evoke the notion of a practice that must be practiced. We weave conscious breath, movement, sound, touch, dance, as well as the placement of attention and…


Sexological Bodywork and Surrogate Partner Therapy

November 13, 2015

You may or may not have noticed, but I wear a lot of hats. Among the things I do is speak on panels as a volunteer with the Center for Positive Sexuality doing outreach education at universities and trainings with professionals. One of the panels I’m on is the Sex Worker panel. I’m always happy to talk about sexological bodywork because not many people know about this field. I’m also glad to show…


What it was like to receive a series of Sexological Bodywork sessions

April 27, 2015

One of the great things having been through the Sexological Bodywork training and setting up my own (small) practice in Los Angeles, is I get to be a resource for folks who are going through the training themselves. I have a pretty good sense of people who work in the field. That, along with the resource of the ACSB practitioner directory, I can link people up if they don’t live near…


Receiving Sexological Bodywork as a Practitioner

June 18, 2014

It had been a long, long time since I’d experienced a hands-on session as the receiver. I can’t even recall how long it had been. It just goes to show that I forget. I forget just how amazing and liberating it is to simply let go. Not to just be passive and have things done to me, though there is a small element of that, but to have a bodyworker…


Orgasmic Yoga

September 11, 2013

Orgasmic Yoga (OY) is a term that was coined by Joseph Kramer and the Body Electric. It is a mindful practice incorporating conscious breath, movement, sound, and touch to sink deeper into the body without the aid of outside erotic stimulation (such as porn or fantasy).  It does not involve yoga, but it can if one is so inclined. It does not even have to feature orgasms. OY is a…


Sexological Bodywork

April 17, 2013

Sexological Bodywork is a modality of sex education that has been around since 2003. Originally developed by Joseph Kramer, it is a way to teach and facilitate embodiment through conscious breath, movement, touch, and sound. Sometimes Sexological Bodywork is synonymous with Somatic Sex Education – somatic meaning “of the body.” It can be a hands on tool to teach people how to expand their capacity for pleasure and body awareness, but…
