Sex and intimacy. Two essential aspects of our health and well-being. Two essential aspects of strong, healthy partnerships.
Sexuality is a crucial component of our entire human experience. If our sexual life and relationships are thriving, we feel:
When we can develop confident, empowered sexual identities and can express ourselves in this confident, joyful and empowered way, we create satisfying, affirming, loving, life-giving experiences and interactions.
If we choose it to be so, sexuality can be a powerful conduit for love.
It has tremendous potential to restore a sense of connection to self and others; a sense of wholeness; a sense of TRULY being ALIVE.
Sexuality, and the infinitely vast ways in which humans express it has a liminal quality and essence all its own. Meaning it has its own mysterious, spiritual and sacred connection to the life force of the universe.
Its mystery and sacredness offer us respite from the daily stressors, the mundane routines, and the moments of human despair.
Sexuality in all its healing power and erotic energy is a portal into our true authentic nature, into found treasures of our unique capacities to give and receive love, into pure and complete acceptance (of self and other).
Its mystery and sacredness offer us respite from the chaos of the present, the wounds of our past, and the fears of our future.
Sexuality offers us the experience of being fully in our bodies, being fully in the present moment, and giving and receiving without judgment, shame, cultural constraints.
However, for many of us, this is not the experience of sex.
Often, humans experience the shadow side of sexuality; which is the side in which we experience the destructiveness of betrayal, trauma, pain and grief, exclusion, judgment, shame, isolation, rejection, and deep disconnection from self and other.
And when humans experience the shadow side of sexuality, it is so profound, that we can even lose faith and hope in the healing, transformative power of love.
If our sexual life and relationships are suffering, it is difficult to feel fully alive and engaged with life. We know something is missing. And usually, we blame either ourselves or our partners, which then makes our suffering even greater.
Ryan Therapy Services is passionate about helping clients explore their own and their partner (s) eroticism and sexuality in a sex-positive, non-judgmental, supportive context.
We help clients of all sexual identities:
Many cultural forces work to define sex from a negative, shame-based and fear-based perspective. As a result of these powerful cultural influences, many individuals struggle with feelings of anxiety, shame, and guilt around their own sexuality. Adding to this, for many of us, is a lack of quality sexual education.
A sex-positive approach is a way of thinking about sex and integrating sexuality into one’s life and relationships with acceptance, a non-judgmental attitude, curiosity, respect, and trust. It embraces all kinds of sexual activity and expression as long as it is consensual and does not hurt others.
It moves away from thinking about sex from a “performance-based” model and moves toward thinking about sex as a positive, loving force originating in one’s deepest erotic self.
