317 Eroticism Beyond Binaries

Revisioning Sex Therapy

While many of us grow up steeped in toxic narratives about how bodies are “supposed to” function and how we “should” experience pleasure, these narratives pose particular problems for trans and nonbinary folx because they ignore the diverse and radical possibilities of trans erotic embodiments. The writer Xan West suggested that gender can be an “elaborate sex toy.” Learn how to support clients in using that toy with confidence and moving toward embodied ecstasy. This interactive workshop will provide participants with “Intimate Justice”-informed tools to enliven clinical practice and engage clients—cis and trans alike!—in "re-visioning” their embodied erotic selves. You’ll learn to:

  • Increase your awareness of—and deconstruct—the narratives that negatively impact understanding of trans sexualities
  • Address a range of sexual health concerns with trans and non-binary folx within clinical settings
  • Recenter pleasure in practice with both cis and trans clients
  • Deploy somatic, pleasure-centered interventions to help clients come into passionate relationship with their sexual selves
