Sexological Bodyworkers are somatic sex educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own erotic development, learn about their bodies, sex and sexuality, or work through sexual issues or concerns.
We offer experiential learning opportunities that consciously access profound ecstatic and erotic states. Our teaching involves a variety of instructive modalities, including breathwork, touch, erotic massage, pelvic release work, scar tissue remediation, and Orgasmic Yoga coaching.
One of the somatic realms that Sexological Bodyworkers introduce to our students 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 a Taoist Erotic Massage. Helping others access and make use of a variety of erotic states is foundational to the education we offer.
Sexological Bodyworkers believe that sexual health and erotic education are basic human rights.
Our profession began in California in 2003. We are trained sexologists whose certification there is approved by the State of California. We are a legal profession in many countries and we are working towards legality in other countries.
Sexual arousal may induce an altered state of consciousness that is available to anyone willing to explore it. But, as with meditation and shamanic journeying, the non-ordinary conscious state generated in sustained sexual arousal constitutes an opportunity one must learn to use.
Dr. John Ryan Haule
Since the most profound sex education happens when our students are fully engaged in the learning process, Sexological Bodyworkers act as resources more than teachers for motivated individuals who wish to explore what is erotically possible. Many sexological bodyworkers specialize in guiding individuals, couples and groups into the mystical and shamanic aspects of human sexuality. Although we come from many spiritual and religious traditions, we all acknowledge the spiritual dimensions of sexuality.
We also offer assistance to adult individuals who have experienced inadequate sexual education and instruction in self-care from family, religion, school, birth and health care professionals. Some people seek us out because sexual shame has damaged their self-image, interfered with relationships, or even thwarted their ability to love. We consider pleasure a powerful and valuable form of education.
Facilitating erotic embodiment in groups is the core of this new profession. Sexological Bodyworkers are co-creators of astonishing environments for student-centered learning, including fresh possibilities using groundbreaking techniques for erotic empowerment and self-care.
Being part of an erotic-learning community is an experience that Sexological Bodyworkers make available to everyone. Experiencing and understanding the communal nature of sex and embodiment is foundational for individual freedom, pleasure and happiness. Witnessing different people’s erotic expressions can inspire us, give us permission to try new things, and relieve us of toxic shame.
Sexological Bodyworkers offer learning beyond individual sessions and groups. We seek to transform the culture by offering individuals and couples learning tools in the form of sex education DVDs, CDs, podcasts, websites, books, and articles.

The Orgasmic Yoga Institute. Orgasmic Yoga is a form of erotic yoga that involves pleasurable, intimate and transformative practices that individuals, couples, and groups can do while sexually aroused. One of the roles of Sexological Bodyworkers is that of erotic yoga instructor.

Some Sexological Bodyworkers offer sexual education to individuals and couples in a personalized course of three to ten sessions. Somatic transformation happens over time. We seldom work in single sessions.
You will start by creating an agreement stating your learning objectives and the modalities that will be used. Informed consent from the student precedes all Sexological Bodywork, and professional confidentiality is assured.
A series of introductory sessions allows you to experience the benefits of orgasmic breathing, Taoist Erotic Massage, pelvic relaxation and release work, and mindful masturbation. Our joint evaluation of these introductory sessions may suggest a specific goal or learning objective for future tutorials.
A crucial part of the education Sexological Bodyworkers offer students is the value of intentions and boundaries. While we acknowledge the human longing for connection, we recognize the value of professional distance. We are conscious and make our students conscious that while we share authentic intimacy, sexological bodywork sessions will not fulfill their desires for sexual connection.
The focus of individual sessions is on the student’s experience within his or her own body. Sexological Bodyworkers do not act as surrogate partners. We are clothed and the touching in our sessions is uni-directional. We request students bring their partners when they wish to learn interpersonal erotic skills.
Sexological Bodyworkers are committed to complementing and extending the effectiveness of services offered by psychotherapists and other health care professionals. We value working in close partnership with these professionals but will do so only with your approval.
