One woman in four will reach the age of 20 and one in ten even 35 without ever having experienced an orgasm, by which time the interest and joy arising from sexuality is greatly reduced. This results in questioning of the self, insecurities and a lack of self confidence all strongly affect ones view of being a woman in the ‘proper sense’.
Our learning programme understands that in order to reach orgasm and sexual fulfilment, women need to know how to elicit arousal, to enhance it and to let go in orgasm, combined with the experience of establishing sexual and erotic pleasure and voluptuousness. To this extent we introduce various successful therapeutic techniques based on skills the women already possess in order to enrich the erotic experience, thereby leading to increased enjoyment and sexual satisfaction.
Groups known as ‘Reaching Orgasm with Pleasure’ (10 participants) aim to be serious and goal-oriented, sensual, joyous and voluptuous as well as effective. Participants learn the essentials of the sexual function of the body, how to recognise and to advocate their sexual needs, combined with an exploration of the influence of personal and societal value systems which may prevent erotic enjoyment. During group therapy the women practice self perception of the body, breathing and muscle tension along with movement and rythm which are requisite for the experiencing of voluptuousness. Further support is provided in the form of excercises with the possibility of experiencing an inspiring and supportive exchange among the groups members.
About 10-15 % of adults have the experience of not getting pregnant, when they have a wish to have a child. For some, this life situation is resolved spontaneously. Some undergo investigation, followed by varying treatments, resulting in a child, some adopt, and for others this situation is permanent, and without a solution. When this is the case, existential questions often arise. Earlier studies show that couples who become parent after IVF-treatment are just as content, or more, with their relationships and sexuality compared to parent who conceived spontaneously. Little is known about the couples who continue their relation without a child. Clinical experiences are that many women and men struggle with questions concerning the meaning of sexuality.
In the framework of the Coalition for Sexual and Bodily Rights in Muslim Societies (CSBR) experience to promote sexual, bodily and reproductive health and rights, this paper will explore women's approach to sexuality, sexual health, sexual rights, and sexual pleasure based on the experience of the Human Rights Education Program for Women (HREP) in Turkey, implemented in 42 cities. The paper will contexualize sexual health and rights in Muslim societies through a human rights approach, drawn on experiences of grassroots movement for women in Turkey, in a context where efforts to promote SRHR contend with patriarchal norms and taboos around sexuality.
Legal education in rural India which circumscribes rights of women with special focus on reproductive rights, rape laws, female feticide, domestic violence, child marriage etc. has played a pivotal role in translating these rights into practice. This has been possible through innovative legal education drives which have identified a set of para-legal women who act as reservoirs of knowledge and are adequately equipped to handle instances of violation of such rights.
It is commonly accepted that sex education should start at early age. Most teachers hold positive attitudes towards programs on sex education, but some surveys showed a discrepancy between overt attitudes towards sex education and willingness to practice this as part of the professional duty.
In many school settings, adolescent sexuality has been discussed largely in terms of sexual behaviour and risk. Little attention has been given to the positive aspects of sexuality and sexual expression. This study sought to explore how key stakeholders in three secondary schools in the UK understand youth sexual behaviours.
