Most of us long to touch and be touched in a timeless, heartfelt way. We long to feel accepted and cherished for the unique, sensual beings we are. Often this natural, spontaneous connection between our selves and our sexuality is lost. How can we reclaim the precious, soft parts of ourselves which like a compass steer us to freedom and grace?  Aa an intimacy professional, I help guide you into relationships that are vibrant, sensually awake and soul nourishing.  I offer private sessions,  an online intimacy course with my videos and personal phone coaching, and community speaking opportunities.

Mature and wise in my body, I’m a PhD. Sexologist, Certified Sexological Bodyworker, Surrogate Partner Therapist, and founder of Austin’s BodyJoy Intimacy School where thousands of students have learned simple and profound ways to touch, talk and play together that feel safe and satisfying. I’m author of Erotic Massage: Sensual Pleasure for Extended Arousal (available in 7 languages) and 8 Erotic Nights: Passionate Encounters that Inspire Great Sex for a Lifetime.  More about Charla and Charla’s Books
