Optimizing Sexual Experiences
8 week group, beginning April 2023
Do you and your partner(s) experience low or no desire? Or does one of you feel like sex more than the other? If you are ready to embark on a journey to enhance your sexual experiences and relationships, join myself and Registered Psychotherapist Stephen Biggs for 16 hours of online couples group therapy. Limit of 4 to 6 couples per group.
The content of the group is based on the work of the Optimal Sexual Experiences Research Team at the University of Ottawa. The groups are part of a study on the effectiveness of group therapy in enhancing sexual relationships. Your participation in the research project (which is optional) consists of completing questionnaires at multiple time points.
Their research (published in the book, Magnificent Sex) is the largest, in-depth interview study ever conducted with people who have extraordinary sex. In the Optimising Sexual Experiences Group, we have gathered the nuggets for remarkable sex from the experts and distilled them into an attainable blueprint for ordinary lovers who want to make erotic intimacy grow over the course of a lifetime.
Is this for me?
We welcome relationships across the sexuality and gender spectrum, including polycules; vanilla and kinky; and folks who have been in a relationship from a few months to a lifetime.
