★★★★★ "Sex Club has taught me so many critical lessons about communication, boundaries and intimacy. I cannot thank you enough! I now have a framework and tools to make intimacy and sex a nutritious, safe and fun space. Exploring profoundly essential questions across genders, sexualities & ages, I heard participants share experiences so familiar they enabled me to give my experiences a voice, and others which seemed truly revolutionary." - Emma W. on the recent Online Sex Club Course.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, you have sex or no sex, you experience 14 different types of orgasms or none, you masturbate a lot or not at all. You’re definitely a sexual being.
The relationship to, and conditioning and experience of our sexuality affects all of us. It permeates our day to day experience consciously and subconsciously more than we realise.
Throughout our life the majority of us didn’t develop of practise of processing our sexuality or making sense of it. Mostly we’re unable to translate our inner experience into words because we’re not used to it.
ABOUT THE COURSE
In this 6 week Sex Club Course we will take you on a collective journey to practise expressing your experience in words, hear and learn from others and explore key elements that are necessary to connect to your sexuality more profoundly and experience a richer sex life:
★ Week 1: Desires -explore your deepest desires, both known and unknown.
★ Week 2: Boundaries - learn about your boundaries. Develop self-compassion and make friends with your sexuality.
★ Week 3: Shame - practise the articulation of your shame, insecurities and needs. Shame doesn’t withstand exposure.
★ Week 4: Communication - learn and practise how to communicate your desires and boundaries. Develop confidence and ease to discuss intimacy and sexuality with lovers and friends.
★ Week 5: Solo Sex - exchange your experiences and relationship to masturbation and cultivate self love.
★ Week 6: Partner Sex - explore the difference between your need for sexuality and your need for intimacy.
Over the 6 week period we will create a container together where through shared vulnerability and a commitment to each other we’ll create group trust so it will feel safe to go deeper into our experiences, de-armour insecurities and shame through exposure and find new confidence and comfort in ourselves as a sexual beings.
We will take you through group exercises and enquiries drawn from group process and shadow work that consist of conversational enquiries. Whilst we will offer a framework of exercises, this course very much focuses on tapping into the collective knowledge and experience of the group. No one has figured out how to do sex or intimacy, yet we’ve all learned something along the way. These learnings we’ll share, and we piece together the puzzle that will create a learning experience that is bigger than the sum of its parts, whilst creating a sense of community and deep connection to your fellow explorers on the way.
Sex Club is a fully inclusive space to everyone regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location. The space will be held safely yet bravely. It is confidential and we each share only what we feel to share.

ABOUT YOUR FACILITATORS
★★★★★ "Juliane and Conor held the space beautifully and created an environment where I could share things I'd never spoken about before. They also encouraged us and created a framework for us to feel into how much was right to share at any moment, to stay in the learning zone rather than the panic zone or comfort zone. Lots of depth, and also lightness and joy" - Emilia M.
★★★★★ “Excellently held. As one of 20+ online participants, the virtual space was held so well that we were all able to embrace vulnerability in order to share, release and grow. A powerful 4-week sharing space where everyone was committed and there for the same truth.” - Alasdair K.
I am a facilitator of transformational spaces, community builder and artist developing holistic structures and processes that further our collective evolution.
Sexual liberation is at the heart of individual transformation, without which there can be no meaningful societal progress. To this end, I have co-founded Sex Club in 2017. A space where peers exchange knowledge and experiences, to learn from each other and deliberately develop their sexuality.
I have co-founded and lived in an intentional community project in London for 4 years, developing frameworks for group process work and community maintenance. I became a co-director of The Psychedelic Society in December 2019.
I consult on collective experience design at festivals, artist residencies and co-working environments on how to build true community, amongst others The Psychedelic Society, of which I became a co-director in December 2019. My artistic and personal enquiry is the authentic expression of self through creativity, intellect, emotion and sexuality. I spent 10 years in the corporate tech industry before my calling into the not-for-profit sector and I remembered that I'm an artist, as we all are.
I’m a psychologist trained as a counsellor and coach. I design group processes and offer one-to-one sessions to help people to deepen their self awareness and return to their natural state of ease and flow.
I’ve been leading Sex Club with Juliane since the beginning and I’ve found it deeply touching to see the impact it has had for participants on the courses and in the workshops. .
My background is in psychology with a B.A. in psychology and an MSc in behaviour change, I’ve also trained as a holistic counsellor.
David Chambers - Authentic Dating Podcast:
★★★★★ - WOW.... Just WOW. So much fun, so insightful, so open, accepting and the space was so well held. Met some amazing people and we discuss topics that i hadn't thought I would be interested in. I can't wait to the next one. My only complaint is that I wish it was all day. :)
Amy Cooper - Secret Seed Society:
★★★★★ - I have taken part in these conversational Sex Clubs before and found them really fascinating, safe, reassuring, enlightening, lightening, stimulating and opening I recommend them. It is not therapy but it is therapeutic, it is not about kinks or being straight or queer, it's whatever the group brings. The variety makes the conversation richer and the difference between us has always seemed to be reassuring. Come if you have sex, come if you don't have sex, come if you feel convinced you know something about sex and would like to share, come if you have no idea what questions you would ask about sex or what you would share. My take home was that we navigate sex for ourselves and can find inspiration and connection from others. Try it..."
Mark Wagner - MKII:
★★★★★ - What a blessing to have discovered Sex Club! A sharing circle where we can finally impart our experience, thoughts and feelings on a theme that concerns all of us: Sexuality. Staying well clear of personal judgement, opinions and dogma the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and most importantly acceptant of one and all. For me personally, the 'session' facilitated the integrated realisation that from here on, the evolution of my sexuality was intricately connected to my ability to communicate about sexuality.... So what better place to start than Sex Club!"
