What people are saying about Alex's Courses
This course is incredible for providing proper education about sex toys, lube, and barriers. This information is hardly talked about and the need for this education is so vital for clients and people in general. I really appreciate the information and how inclusive and non-judgmental this was!
This course excites me about the direction that our profession is shifting towards to best assist all patients in addressing their goals for improving their sexual function and experience.
The instructors were highly knowledgeable and able to break down myths with ease while bringing in humor. I whole heartedly agree humor is necessary with any sexual exploration, experience, or even educating patients about sexual function. If you'll allow it, I would love to quote the statement "sex without a sense of humor is setting you up for disappointment, embarrassment, and shame." This is so impactful! I can imagine patients or even just any individual *sigh* after hearing it. You both speak and educate with inclusivity and intention. Thank you.
