This workshop examines the cultural pressures that shape domesticated sex and the puzzling inverse correlation between greater emotional intimacy and the loss of sexual desire. It will demonstrate how to help couples draw pleasure from the hidden, the suggestive and the uncanny while also respecting their needs for safety and stability. Using case examples, we will explore how to grant the body its profound capacities for communicating in its own language.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how a sexual relationship can serve as a lens into the couple's interpersonal dynamics.
  2. To describe a cross-cultural perspective to help couples find alternate paths on the erotic landscape.
