Sex is one of the most judged activities on the planet. Different cultures have different ways of expressing that judgement – and the result of judgement is never expansive. Judgement will always kill possibilities, and in this case, the possibilities are for communion and pleasure with our own body, and our partner’s body.
So, to fully answer the question why did I create this class, I need to go back in time. It’s only recently that I have realised this, it was so deeply buried in my psyche – when I was a child, I was highly aware of my body, and the pleasure it could give me. That was pretty much stamped out of me; it was made clear to me in different ways by my Mum and my Dad that that kind of enjoyment was not “suitable” and “appropriate” in our family.
As a teenager, and actually all through my adult life in different ways, I was confused about sex, and the sexual experiences me and my friends were having, or seemed to be having. We actually didn’t talk about the details a great deal. We were “nice” British “gals” or young ladies after all.
Are you fed up with an “ordinary” life? Maybe you're stressed out, struggling with low mood, or physical illness? Maybe there's a particular area of your life you would like to change?
