Discover the potential of your body through Somatic Sexology.
We are artists of transformation. We create spaces to explore sexuality, intimacy and connection. We encourage self-empowered relating through establishing boundaries and expressing desires. We listen to the language of the body and cultivate its wisdom, as all the answers we seek lie encoded within.
We are phasing out dysfunctional relationships, unfulfilling sex, and loneliness. We are welcoming in clear and honest communication, empowered and enriching sexuality, and embodied connection to ourselves and others.
We are the oasis in the desert. A safe harbour for stillness and silence. A full-bodied YES when you mean YES, and NO when you mean NO.
We are actively creating opportunities to be brave and dig deeper, to address the taboos, to ask the difficult questions, and to explore the thousandfold ways of making love in this world.
What is Somatic Sexology?
Somatics is about “embodiment”, focusing awareness through the body. We use body-based practices to explore our physical nature and emotions. We awaken and nurture parts of ourselves that are often neglected, such as sexuality and intimacy. This is part of somatic learning – learning through the body.
Sexology is the study of people’s behaviours and interactions in sexuality. In our work, for example, we look at how shame may play a role in our sexual experiences, or how there are as many pathways to arousal as there are people on this planet.
This kind of inquiry helps to open ourselves to new ways of being, letting go of old habits and BS (belief systems) that inhibit our full potential for pleasure, aliveness and freedom.
If you are looking to bring more self-empowerment and transformation into your life, our work is for you! We are offering Bodywork and Tantra Events in Cape Town and other parts of South Africa.
This work (and play) is for anyone with a body and a curiosity to learn, no matter where you are at in your (s)exploration. Bring your humanness and come as you are. We are open to and respectful of all people joining our workshops and courses, and we try our best to use language that is inclusive of all genders and pronouns. We are aware that there will always be blind spots and room for improvement – if there’s something we missed or you have ideas on how to make our events safer or more accessible to you, please let us know.
If any questions or doubts come up, always feel free to reach out to us – we love to support you!
Sure you can. We aim to create a brave and safer space that is open to everybody. As a solo participant, you have the world of connection at your fingertips and for partner work you will pair up with someone you meet at the event. We ask that participants stay open to doing practices and exercises with people of the same sex/gender. People often close this door very quickly and thus can only experience a fragment of the world we are offering.
That said, we respect your boundaries and are aware of potential resistance. So please talk to us if you have any questions.
Yes, definitely. In the workshops, we will also discuss and explore exercises around relating. The general idea is to dive deeper in your relating, to communicate transparently, and to reconnect and explore more in sexuality and intimacy.
As a couple/pair, whether romantic or not, we invite you to talk about the workshop setting before the event. You should be clear on whether you will only do the exercises together, or if you are also open to practicing with other participants. This helps to lessen the uncertainty for you in the workshop setting.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
It is important to respect your boundaries and those of other participants, for us this is a priority. You can always say no if something feels too much – this is completely okay and encouraged. We emphasize consent in our workshops, and it helps to remember that if it’s not a full-bodied YES, then it’s a no. Maybe also means no. If you simply feel resistance and need assistance, we are there to guide you through the challenging moments so that you can let go of anything that may be holding you back from enjoying your full pleasure potential.
The intention of our work is to meet each other on a real and sober level, without our everyday masks, without additions, distractions or escape routes. For this reason, our events and private bodywork sessions have a strict NO SUBSTANCES policy. This means no alcohol or mind-altering substances prior to or during the event. If we notice that someone is under the influence of any substance, we have the right to send them home. We acknowledge that substances have their time and place, however, we feel that the work we do with Touched has its own medicine to offer, without incorporating anything supplementary. We understand that you may be nervous, and we fully encourage you to embrace the feeling, show up in your full authenticity and share it in the space. It’s likely that you’re not the only one who feels this way, and your vulnerability inspires and allows the same in others. We invite you to come home to your body, instead of finding ways to vacate it. This is intimacy – into-me-I-see. We’re in this together, we got you!
