Caffyn Jesse


I have retired from offering somatic sex education sessions. I am spending more time enjoying the hummingbirds (as in the picture above). I am also writing, reading, developing new teachings and learnings, playing with my dog, and savouring the deep delight of friendships and community. I am actively engaged in work around Ethics for Outlaws. I post regularly on Facebook, where you can follow me to connect with all the new ideas, drawings and resources. The best way to send me a message is by using the contact form below.

I have retired from my position as faculty at the Institute for the Study of Somatic Sex Education, but many of my teachings are available there, and I continue to participate in the school in the weekly Community of Practice. The professional training offered at the Institute is for people who want to learn to support clients and friends in healing sexual trauma, accessing expanded pleasure, encouraging neuroplastic change.  The workshops and teachings always honor the gender galaxy, explore the intersection of sex and spirit, and create erotic community. People of all gender identities, sexual orientations, body shapes and ancestries are welcomed and celebrated. Somatics is linked with racial justice and anti-oppression.

I have many free and low cost teachings that I joyfully share online and in my books. I have researched and written on the science of sexological bodywork, neurobiology and sexual healing, trauma, orgasm coaching and many other topics. Books include Science for Sexual Happiness, Intimacy Educator, and Pelvic Pain Clinic. Video programs include Healing Circumcision: Work with Scars, Learn Erotic Massage and Breathe the Body Erotic . There are many free articles, videos and podcasts on this website.

People who want to work with a somatic sex educator can find wonderful colleagues and students through the practitioners’ directory of Intimacy Educators here or the Somatic Sex Educators Association.
