An introduction to Sexual Grounding Therapy
Above all, Sexual Grounding Therapy© is about relationships – our relationship to ourselves, our parents – as our two sexual sources, one masculine, one feminine – throughout our lives (even after they are no longer with us physically), our relationships with our sexual partners, with our children, with friends and the wider community and even with the planet on which we live. One of the problems which frequently arises in couple relationships is where one or both partners is trying to get from their partner what they didn’t get earlier from their parent(s?). Many schools of couple therapy recognise this, but what is different about Sexual Grounding Therapy is that it sees this in terms of triadic and dyadic relationships.
When we, as most of us do, relate to our partner in the same way as we related to one or both parents, we create a triadic relationship, i.e. one with three people in it. We also approach the relationship from a position either of entitlement or need; the need or entitlement being that our partner affirms us as a sexual being. Sexual Grounding would assert that this is our parents’ job. If our parents have done that job, or if we’ve worked on this in a Sexual Grounding context, we’re then able to approach the relationship from a position of wanting to share ourselves with our partner rather than needing something from them.
