Interviews with founder of the Sexological bodywork as a profession - Joseph Kramer.


Somatic training – Sexological bodywork offers unique opportunities for the education thanks to the direct experience. The participants will learn a huge variety of possibilities of this new profession, which is officially certified in the USA, California.

Participants learn a variety of Sexological Bodywork modalities, including male and female genital massage, sensate focus, anal massage, pelvic release work, breath work, and masturbation coaching. Furthermore, participants experience how humans learn sex—through mindful, self-directed practice over time. This course will prepare practitioners to teach somatic sex education to individuals, couples and groups.

This Sexological Bodywork training makes use of online learning, phone conferences, home erotic practice sessions, video demonstrations, supervised practicum, and communal erotic practice. During the residential Intensive, participants and instructors gather to hone erotic skills, to explore communal erotic trance states, and to connect with their colleagues in the new profession of Sexological Bodywork.

The erotic education in this course is communal: we learn from each other and with each other. This training welcomes diversity in sexual preference, gender, and age.


This course is taught both in Czech and English.

Prerequisites for enrollment

The basic prerequisite for this training is a heartfelt commitment to serve others.

This training was designed to build on the experience of individuals who are already working as bodyworkers, sex educators, yoga instructors, psychotherapists, or health care providers.

Enrollment in this training requires educated hands. Students must be competent, experienced, and confident in their ability to give massage.

The basic requirement for attending the Embodiment Intensive is to take part in the 10 days – The School of sensual holistic massage.  You will learn both theoretically and practically:

  • male and female genital massage
  • anal massage
  • pelvic floor and prostate massage
  • oil body massage

Non-obligatory but welcome is also any experience with interviewing, coaching and various types of therapies.

The School of sensual holistic massage teaches methods and techniques of massage of body and intimate parts, giving thus participants the transforming experience of partaking in an environment with higher energy levels, comfort and natural attitude to body and intimacy (both their own and of their clients) and other moments essential for personal and professional growth.

We have learned that the SB training can go much faster and deeper when the students are ready and have already experience with working with body and intimacy, which is the main reason why we require certain level of expertise already in our applicants.

Applicants who have not attended our courses, will be accepted only on the basis of an interview with Denisa and Richard. Thus we will be able to evaluate their level of readiness and, if necessary, to recommend relevant steps that should be taken as a preparation.

Students must have a high-speed internet connection in order to access the group discussions, the video demonstrations, and other course materials.

Course structure

Module I - Online Group Study - 1st January 2017 - 2nd April 2017

Somatic Sex Education is an area of study full of new ideas. The required readings and viewings are foundational for the learning in this training. Students are required to write short reports about each reading and film which will be posted in an online forum.

The most profound embodied learning in the Sexological Bodywork training takes place at home during erotic practice sessions. Mindful somatic practice over time is the core of the home study program. Online video demonstrations and important sexological readings provide a survey of the new field of somatic sexology with an emphasis on erotic massage, masturbation coaching, anal pleasure, erotic yoga, and sexual health. Each student reports to the group once or twice a week about his or her erotic practice and learning.

A private forum at The New School of Erotic Touch ( facilitates the sharing of homework assignments, while providing a place for online discussions and communications with the instructors.

An online home-study workbook directs practice sessions, course readings and video viewing. Students should allocate ten to fifteen hours each week for the home study program. Students are encouraged to divide their home schooling evenly between erotic practice sessions and study of video and texts. Students who have not completed the home study requirements cannot attend the 10-day Embodiment Intensive.

Module II- Embodiment Intensive - 13th April 2017 - 23rd April 2017

After weeks of group online learning, students and faculty come together in the flesh to practice communally. The ten days of the Intensive include instruction and practice in self-massage, movement, sensate focus, erotic massage, breath work, and masturbation coaching. Special emphasis is placed on learning to work with others as a sexual yoga instructor, guiding their erotic practice sessions and, whenever possible, empowering them to direct their own somatic learning. Every person touches and coaches every other person in the training.

During the Intensive, students deepen the erotic practice begun in the home study.

The following modalities are emphasized:

  • Somatic Sex Coaching

This form of sex coaching involves taking on the role of erotic trainer or sexual yoga instructor. Participants help others to overcome shame and erotic sensory-motor amnesia, allowing both personal and communal erotic embodiment. Rather than offer teaching, students facilitate learning and erotic mindfulness in others.

  • Conscious Breath work

Breathing is a foundational tool of Sexological Bodywork. Several different breathing methods are taught. Students learn to help others expand their capacity for sexual excitement and erotic joy through breathing.

  • Masturbation Coaching

Based on Authentic Movement, masturbation coaching is an astonishingly effective means to assist others to break free of limiting habits and to go deep into erotic experience. The major technique in masturbation coaching is witnessing and being witnessed. Students give and receive individual coaching sessions as well as participate in and facilitate group coaching structures, such as erotic trance dancing. Students learn ways to make use of video feedback in working with others. The motto of masturbation coaching is: “Change the way you masturbate, change your life.”

  • Erotic Bodywork

Through both giving and receiving erotic touch, students learn several forms of genital and anal massage. This erotic bodywork often results in trance states. Students also learn to teach this bodywork to couples and groups as a form of lovemaking. Furthermore, students learn neo-Reichian bodywork techniques to free the body’s potential for orgasm by releasing muscular “armoring” or constriction.

  • Muscular, Skeletal, and Genital Anatomy

Anatomy is taught within the context of bodywork demonstrations and sessions.


Module III - Supervised practicum - 24th April 2017 - 23rd July 2017

After the Intensive, students participate in four more weeks of group online home study. The assignments and readings focus on teaching with media, successful business practices, and structuring one’s learning during the supervised practicum.

Students explore effective use of DVDs, telephone coaching and conference calls, group distance learning, and online websites such as Setting up a successful Sexological Bodywork practice involves a vision, business plan, promotion, and a supportive network. Students also become familiar with legal issues and professional ethics.

Supervised Practicum 

Students complete twenty-five sessions of Sexological Bodywork with individuals, couples and small groups. Students post reports on their sessions online for the instructors and classmates to read and review. Faculty will offer individual and group supervision in twice monthly phone conferences.

„I feel a huge change after the training.

My perception is wider now, I am much more in my body, for example I wake up several times during the night and feel my hands and legs tingling, I enjoy every bite that I eat, every touch I give or get is a celebration of life for me. CET (The Central Erotic Theme) I have found and adopted means an enormous change in my approach to myself. And we have a totally different dimension of honeymoon with my wife! My „rescue“ brake was released by the training.“

Josef, SB student 2015


„It was amazing and inspiring. Don´t hesitate and go for it!

For yourself, or for others, too.

Silvia Henniger, SB student 2015


 …so I am a CSB – Certified Sexological Bodyworker – from today.

Neither my high school graduation diploma, nor my university degree made me cry, but this one did.

Thank you, Joseph Kramer, Denisa Říha Palečková, Richard Vojík.

Irena Bartošová, SB student 2014



 „My life after the Sexological Bodywork training is fuller, I am satisfied, all the people around me are ill and mad, I am healthy and laughing all the time as my husband says.. With him I am happier than before, by the way... And I am a real vixen now and he grows besides me in his manhood... I am just in love head over heels… to my husband... And all maladies, stress and similar crap I easily fight with orgasmic yoga…“

Magda Komínková, SB student 2014

„What I expected from the training before I went there was to grow professionally but also to grow as a person, to learn how to respect and honor myself and to become a „woman“.  I wasn´t sure if all this is possible.. The first days of the training were like a rollercoaster.. Up, down… Then something started to change. Every day I made a small step forward. I started to break down my barriers.. And to open my heart.. My body.. And when I was leaving yesterday, in the bus I felt, that I am breathing to my full lungs, my breath is not shallow anymore… Despite of the fact I was so very tired I found myself smiling.. Just so.. Without any reason... I felt the change that occurred with me actually… I would never suppose the change to be so „visible“!

Today, after the first massage I gave after the training, my client who comes to me for massage regularly for one year already, saw „the new Adriana“ just at the door while he was greeting me. He saw a self-confident, shining woman and also the massage was different, as he said. He could feel my openness and confidence…


With love

Adriana, SB student 2015
