The Mission of the SSEA is to offer public education, professional trainings and ongoing professional development in support of somatic sex education and sexological bodywork in Canada, the United States, and around the world.
Somatic sex educators support people on their journey to sexual wholeness through body-based experiences designed to nurture, deepen and awaken the sensual self. These experiences can include coaching in breath, movement, body awareness, boundary-setting, communication, anatomy, sensate focus, massage, erotic trance and other body-based teaching about sex.
Uniquely in the professions, we are trained to offer genital and anal touch for education, healing and pleasure. When it is supportive of the client’s intentions, we touch in ways that assist people in claiming choice and agency, in developing presence within the body, and learning how the body can feel more and more alive.
