Now that we’re finally starting to openly accept the fact that sex is very normal, fun and that we all do it (!), many sexual professions that have existed quietly for a long time are taking the spotlight. One of these professions is the sensual coach. But what is a sensual coach and why are more and more people opting to see one?

 

The role of a sensual coach

A sensual coach, sometimes referred to as an intimacy coach is a professional who provides guidance, education, and support to individuals or couples seeking to enhance their sensual and intimate experiences. These coaches focus on helping their clients explore and improve their connection with their own bodies, desires, and the pleasure they experience with a partner.

 

The role of a sensual coach goes beyond addressing purely physical aspects of sex; it encompasses emotional, psychological, and relational aspects as well. As our society has gradually become more focused on conscious living, we are starting to realise that many of us are very disconnected from our own bodies. A sensual coach doesn’t only help individuals and couples improve their sexual well-being, they also are here to help us reconnect with our senses outside of our sexual lives. 

 

How does a sensual coach work?

A sensual coach can work online, and provide sex education and support  to their followers on platforms like Instagram, Tiktok or Twitter. A sensual coach can also provide individual appointments/sessions with clients, where the focus is more personal to each individual. Many sensual coaches do both of these things. 

 

Who seeks a sensual coach?

You might have a stereotypical idea in your head that people who go to see a sensual coach are in some way ‘bad at sex’ or have a very specific and serious problem they need help with. In actual fact, it’s a whole lot more chill than that. The reality is that most of us would benefit from the support of a sensual coach. 

We’ve become very normalised to living in a society that makes us feel ashamed of our bodies and its needs. In actual fact, our bodies, our desires, being in touch with our senses- all of these things are the most natural thing in the world, and focusing on them should be near the top of our priority list, rather than an afterthought. A sensual coach sort of de-brain-washes us from the way we’ve been taught to think and behave in the western world. Whether you suffer from anxiety, you’re scared of being sexual, or you simply struggle to let go, a sensual coach is likely the answer to your problems.
