Doulas are mostly known for their skillset within childbirth, but sex doulas tap a more sensual skillset you should consider exploring.

In the past few years, the term doula has been expanded to refer to many forms of healing, as sexuality doula Ev’Yan Whitney explained on her website. And in all reality, it might be best for the current political climate.

A sex doula is a trained coach that teaches you how to receive pleasure, build confidence and navigate sexual trauma,” shared Essence. Considering the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade, many femmes have struggled to feel as sexually liberated as they once did. A few years ago, hookup culture was the hype and helped some people reclaim their sexuality. But at a time when partnered pleasure has so many negative consequences, it’s important to refine your sexual wellness routine.

Sex doulas help strengthen your sexual wellness through several methods — depending on their expertise. For example, talk therapy which traditional therapists use, boudoir photography, sex education and more. So yes, some sex doulas can provide intimate solo sex training and other services, if that’s what you need.

Having a sex doula not only provides you with a personal sexual safe space but also helps you create new forms of pleasure, which let’s be real, is important now, more than ever.
