What we do
The Somatic Sex Educators’ Association of Australasia is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people by making quality sex education more available through supporting and promoting the profession of Somatic Sex Education and the practitioners in this field.
Our members are professionally trained Somatic Sex Educators who are here to teach you skills and knowledge to incorporate into your life. We help you to learn playfulness, pleasure, reduce anxiety, regulating your nervous system, and all the multifaceted ways we can enjoy our own bodies and connections with others.
The SSEAA provides guidelines for the profession on minimum standards of training and adherence to a code of ethics. The Association invites membership from practitioners who have been qualified by industry approved training organisations.

Making Sex Education
How we do it
Sex can be a complex and confronting aspect of our human experience. Chances are you were never given a safe or truly supportive space to learn about your sexuality, relationships and pleasure. Developing this area of yourself and consciously learning the many skills involved in creating a healthy and vibrant sex life is incredibly rewarding and impacts your life in a multitude of positive ways.
Some of these may include:
different ways to touch, communicate, learn to be present in order to enhance and expand on your experience of sensation, pleasure and orgasm
over-coming sexual issues and concerns, such as premature ejaculation, lack of sensation, or difficulty reaching orgasm
Plus much more
As with any skill, we develop competency through conscious repetition. A somatic sex educator will support you in developing regular practices to enhance your experience of your body, intimacy, communication, sensation, and sex.
Bringing Sex Education

Being a part of the SSEAA has provided me with a connection point to my professional community that continues to inspire and positively impact the work I do. By sitting on the Association Committee I have been able to contribute to the direction and profile of this incredible industry.
