Self Pleasure to Overcome Trauma

Before I became a certified Somatic Sex Educator (SSE), I was a certified Betty Dodson Bodysex Facilitator and Orgasm Coach. Both emphasize the importance of masturbation and if you've read any of my older blog posts, you already know how important masturbation was to my own journey and healing. Here's a new video from my original and extraordinary teachers, Betty Dodson and Carlin Ross, explaining how vaginal numbness can be healed. I would add that not only is self-pleasure in the form of masturbation key to overcoming trauma, but that SSEs like me can help people take the baby steps necessary to start to experience the body as a safe place, making first masturbation then partner sex more enjoyable.
