    Jordana Ezra

    Trigger warning: this episode contains discussions around sex and language that may offend, so if you have little kids around it might be best to listen with headphones on.

    Jordana (Jordi) Ezra is a certified Somatic Sexologist who predominately works in the LGBTIA+ community. As someone who grew up not feeling safe to be queer, Jordi has dedicated their career to learning, understanding and guiding queer bodied humans to feel safe within the intersections of their gender and sexuality so that they can experience the full spectrum of pleasure that’s available to them.

    Jordi creates courses, programs and workshops for newly out queers to feel confident in their queerness.

    Jordi combines ancient teachings, neuroscience and a combination of tools with a highly attuned intuition in a holistic approach to awaken sexuality, integrate internalised homophobia and heal through the avenue of pleasure.
