The Somatic Sex Educator’s Association of Australasia (SSEAA) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people in our region by making quality sex education more available, promoting the profession of somatic sex education, and providing guidelines for professionals working in the field of sex education, such as minimum standards of training, and adherence to a code of ethics.
Sex is a complex, and potentially extremely rewarding, aspect of our existence. There are many skills involved in the various activities that are part of our sex lives. Learning different ways to touch, to communicate, to be more present to sensation. Learning to enhance and expand on your experience of sensation, pleasure and orgasm. Learning how to overcome sexual issues and concerns, such as premature ejaculation, lack of sensation, or difficulty reaching orgasm. Somatic sex educators teach you these skills, and how to incorporate them into your life. As with any skill, we develop competency through conscious repetition over time. A somatic sex educator will support you in developing regular practices to enhance your experience of your body, of intimacy, of communication, of sensation, and of sex.
