Science of Somatic Sexology

  • House of Togetherness 14-16 Betterton St London WC2H 9BU United Kingdom (map)

An evening of exploring embodied work and sexuality.

This will be a fun and informative event, suitable for any level of knowledge, for couples, singles, practitioners and all other humans :-) Would you like to feel more? Would you like to understand how that is possible? Then this is for you!

There is a revolution in neuroscience happening that is providing empirical support for the importance of embodied work.

What does this have to do with sex?

Somatic sexology can be defined as the study of sex (sexology) as related to the felt sense of the body (somatic – as opposed to say, related to performance or cognitive/talk-only approaches). We will explore definitions and some of the diverse approaches in this emerging field, including the question of its legality and if it qualifies as sex work.

Sex is in the body. Most somatic sexologists believe we need to practice noticing (being present with) and articulating what is being experienced in the body in order to expand our literal and metaphorical vocabulary and to access more pleasure.

We will explore some theoretical underpinnings and practices of somatic sexology. You will be invited into some gentle self-explorations, which will always be optional and invited to ask questions, be curious, be in conversation.

The mindful practices of somatic sexology facilitate greater presence and embodiment in every area of life, moving the nervous system into greater integration and coherence. In this way, mindful erotic practices can increase your capacity for empathy with yourself, with others and with every aspect of life.
