What is Somatic Intimacy Coaching?

What is Somatic Intimacy Coaching? Somatic Intimacy coaching is also known as Sexual Embodiment Coaching.

Working with a Sexual Embodiment Coach, provides you with the tools and judgement-free space to learn embodied intimacy through experiential practice. Most sex and relationship coaches maintain a distance from clients that only allows for mentorship. This distance takes away any opportunity for emotional and erotic connection that can give clients a sense of how a healthy emotional and erotic relationship actually feels.

Being in session with a Sexual Embodiment Coach offers clients with a realistic situation, within specific boundaries, in which to practice the skills and tools that lead to healthy and secure relationships. By practicing real-time with relationship tools, clients have embodied experiences of what it is like to do such things as share and hear feelings, offer and receive boundaries, arouse and be aroused by someone.

So what is Embodiment, and why does it matter?

Embodiment is more than just a physical act; it is the art of being fully present in the moment, attuned to every nuance of pleasure that unfolds. In a world fraught with distractions and obligations, the act of surrendering oneself entirely to the throes of passion becomes a rare gem to be cherished.

To truly unlock the potential for mind-blowing sex, we must first embrace that power within ourselves.

Embodiment is a journey of self-discovery, an exploration of our own desires, boundaries, and vulnerabilities. By cultivating a deep sense of self-awareness, celebrating our bodies, shedding inhibitions and societal constraints, we become our most authentic, sensual selves, radiating an irresistible magnetism that draws others into our passionate orbit.

How is this different from traditional Sex Therapy?

Traditional sex therapy often focuses on sexuality from a medical or dysfunction-based viewpoint. Sex therapy usually ends when things are “OK” and rarely shoots for “great” or “mind-blowing” sex. Often, in traditional therapy or coaching, problem-resolution takes a long time and rarely focuses on enhancement or expansion around sexuality.

While many Sex therapists resort to using books and videos and offering homework, you will be able to do a lot of erotic education and practice in session with a Sexual Embodiment coach.
