Ingersol Gender Center:

Queer on The Spectrum: 





The Trevor Project:


Many of the frameworks, modalities, and tools we deploy in clinical practice as sexuality professionals were developed by white cis men in Europe and the United States in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, at the height of settler colonial projects that sought to impose European and American sexual values systems and violently displace indigenous cultures and their values systems. Likewise, most of the sex research we rely on has, at least unconsciously, tended to center discourses of function as well as the erotic embodiments of white, cis-het, thin, able-bodied people between the ages of 18 and 40.

But what if our methods and practices in sex therapy centered on pleasure and somatics and were steeped in trans and queer conceptions of erotic embodiment and sexual expression? What would it be if we applied a thing or two from how trans and queer folks approach eroticism rather than reflexively and unconsciously making white, cishet, able-bodied bodies and sexualities the norms? What wisdom and “subjugated knowledge” (Foucault) could be found in our bodies? What erotic horizons might open up for our clients? And what opportunities for deepening the therapeutic relationship and shifting our own relationships regarding sex, sexualities, gender, desire, pleasure, and the practice of sex therapy open up?

This day-long workshop, designed for both fully licensed and AASECT-certified therapists seeking to enlarge their scopes of competence and bring cultural humility to their practices, as well as associates, interns, trainees, and students in sex therapy, sex counseling, and sexology, will include a variety of experiential activities, immersive experiences, small and large group discussions, and value clarification opportunities.
