In 1984, he founded the Body Electric School where he trained thousands of professional masseurs and erotic bodyworkers. In 1992, he started the Erospirit Research Institute, a think tank exploring the connection between spirituality and sexuality. In 1999, he founded The New School of Erotic Touch. He is Professor of Somatic Sexology at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco. He has produced over a dozen educational DVDs teaching erotic touch, which are available on our site.
What is a Sexological Bodyworker?
Sexological Bodyworkers are somatic, erotic educators, assisting individuals, couples and groups to deepen their experience of embodiment.
We are trained sexologists whose certification is approved by the State of California. 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 bodywork, and masturbation 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 state, an individual becomes aware of the body as a source of wisdom and of guidance. One of the ways to access this fecund state is by 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.
