‘Sexual Healing’ is a set of objects that aim for a new approach on overcoming sexual problems after a traumatic experience. To make new prototypes with special sensors in them, so we can continue our research, we need €30.000,-

Sex isn’t for easy for everybody.

Especially for women who deal with pain, frustration or shame after a traumatic experience

Sexual Healing
approaches
things differently.

Together with a group of (para-) medical and woman who are experts by experience, we designed 4 objects which can be used outside the clinical environment. These objects will help to recognize the signals of your body and give you a feeling of security and comfort.

So you can (re)learn to enjoy sex.

“The idea came from my own experience with sexual dysfunction. Even though sex is a highly personal thing, I felt approached in a very clinical way.”

— Nienke Helder | Founder Sexual Healing

We have been working hard over the past months to further develop the objects, that we now want to test. Therefore we want quantifiable prototypes.

With 30.000 EUR in budget, we collaborate with a product developer on to continue the development of the prototypes. The budget goes to producing a casting mould for the production of ‘safe’ prototypes, and implementing innovative sensors. With these sensors we can start testing under the supervision of for example pelvic floor physiotherapists, gynaecologists, sexologists and psychologists. This way, we want to learn how the users experience the use of these objects.

“Pelvic floor physical therapy has quite a clinical approach. I think the objects Nienke made can contribute to making the ‘exercises’ easier and more fun. It’s important that you enjoy sexual activities.”

— Ellen Hawinkels | Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist and Sexologist

So we can continue our research!

In the past year, we’ve received an overwhelming amount of positive responses to the concept, both from women who personally dealt with sexual dysfunctions, as from medical experts in the field of sexual health. This didn’t only make it clear that there are a lot of women dealing with these issues, but also that there is a need for a different approach. So that everyone can experience sex in a positive way.

“What I recognize in this research is that, from my own experience, what you’ve been through can have consequences, but you don’t have to get stuck in it.”

“The more I listen to my own body, the more I’ve sort of ended up in a sexual revolution with myself.”

Next to the development of the objects, we want Sexual Healing to serve as an informational platform on sexual dysfunctions.

Did you know for example that women have a hard time reaching an orgasm when they have cold feet?
