Kama is a sexual wellness practice focused on the science-backed idea that Pleasure is Health.

Our mission is to transform how we experience pleasure and its role in our wellbeing. We want to help people of all ages, genders, and sexualities make sexual satisfaction a part of their everyday lives by connecting their mind, body, and heart.

Pleasure is Health

With stress as the number one proxy killer in the world, our mental health is more important than ever. Many societies, however, focus on managing the pain and looking to the brain to restore balance.

We are designed for infinite pleasure, which is why Kama is shifting the focus back to our bodies and taking a different approach to wellness and wellbeing. We are placing pleasure at the forefront of the conversation.

The Kama Method is a simple daily practice designed by our in-house experts to recondition our mind, body, and heart to maximise pleasure and help everyone experience better orgasms. Our holistic approach combines scientific learnings around neuroplasticity with psychosexual therapy, somatic awareness, and ancient wisdom.

Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity

Recent research in neuroplasticity, which is the brain's ability to move, change, and heal, has shown that we can create new neural patterns and behaviours with intentional, repetitive practice. This allows us to shift pain towards pleasure.

Psychosexuality

Psychosexuality

How we think and feel profoundly impacts our experiences of sexuality and pleasure. By reframing our perceptions and building a strong self-awareness, we can create sensual and sexual experiences which align with our true desires.

Somatic Awareness

Somatic Awareness

Somatic Awareness is the ability to be present with our sensations, senses, emotions, and thoughts. By developing a stronger inner awareness, we can observe our own patterns of behaviour — and let them go. It is also one of the most powerful ways to experience self-healing.

Ancient Wisdom

Ancient Wisdom

For thousands of years, cultures around the world have been harnessing sexual pleasure for their health and vitality. Modern science has confirmed the effectiveness of some of these ancient practices, but it cannot replace age-old ways of energetic love-making.

Pleasure is a Human Right

In 2019, the World Association for Sexual Health declared pleasure a human right: “It is everyone’s birthright and therefore it should be included in all aspects of healthcare education and training.” Kama is a response to the directives set out in their Manifesto. These are some of their key guidelines:

Sexual pleasure is a fundamental part of sexual rights as a matter of human rights.

Self-determination, consent, safety, privacy, confidence, and the ability to communicate and negotiate sexual relations are key enabling factors for pleasure to contribute to sexual health and wellbeing.

Sexual pleasure shall be integrated into education, health promotion, service delivery, research, and advocacy in all parts of the world.

Pleasure is a positive experience for all concerned and not obtained by violating other people’s human rights and well-being.

Through the exponentially growing demand of world-wide clients, she understood that the most effective way to transform trauma and access one’s pleasure potential was through a consistent embodied practice as well as an exposure to new ideas around sensuality and sexuality. Bringing together the best of psychosexuality, somatic awareness, and ancient embodied pleasure technology, she created her innovative method that is now impacting female medicine and the lives of thousands.

“The Kama Method works with the body’s natural design to build new neural-pathways for deep states of relaxation, sensuality, pleasure and orgasm. The result is becoming a masterful lover, for yourself and others.”

Aaron Michael
In-house Sex and Somatic Coach

“It’s through deepening our sensual and somatic awareness of our body that we unlock our full pleasure potential.”

Dr. Saida Désilets
In-house PsychoSexual expert

“Kama is creating an opportunity for individuals to harness the amazing technology of their own bodies in the safety of their own home so that they may begin their own neuroplastic healing process. It’s time for us to move out of theory and into embodiment so that we may know acceptance, self-worth, and self-love from the inside out.”

Lisa Wimberger
Founder of the Neurosculpting Institute

“Pleasure is our birth right and has its own unique sound print. I want to live in a world where we can sound our pleasure freely and create harmony and connection. Kama brings all of this to life, offering learning, growth and support. The world needs more of this!”
