Part one of the course addresses the taboos, harmful aspects, and benefits of pornography in modern culture and in sex therapy. We explore men and women’s relationship to porn, including discussion of feminist porn and the evolution of pornography throughout the decades.
Part two delves into the connection we have with our bodies and sexuality via masturbation or self touch. The course dives in to the consequences of a lack of exploration of self touch in childhood and examines the multitude of reasons that shame has been such a major player in people’s relationship to masturbation. The healing and therapeutic qualities of self touch are explored at length.
