The Center for the Intimate Arts
Provide empowering, enriching, enlightening and entertaining erotic education for everyone. We do so through the dissemination of the integral Wholistic SexualityTM paradigm.
We envision a world where sex is understood, honored and free from shame, where our bodies’ ecstatic potential is explored and celebrated, and relationships are based on integrity, compassion and love. We envision an integral model of healthy, loving, responsible, respectful and ecstatic sexuality for everyone!
Our Origin Story
The Center for the Intimate Arts is the brainchild (and heartchild!) of nurse-midwife-practitioner Sheri Winston. In her decades of clinical and counseling work, mostly with women, she became aware of the great need we have in our culture to heal our sexuality and learn to utilize our full sexual potential.
Over a dozen years ago, Sheri retired from birthing babies and birthed a new vision. The core ideas of an integrated, healthy, deliciously pleasurable and ecstatic model of sexuality became her Wholistic SexualityTM paradigm. As a lifelong educator, she developed a curriculum based on that vision, an ever-expanding set of classes that covers a wide spectrum of learning needs about sexuality, intimacy, women’s health and relationships.
In 2005, Sheri established The Center for the Intimate Arts as the next step in the evolution of her vision. In 2009, entrepreneur (and life partner) Carl Frankel joined her team, bringing his business acumen to the enterprise.
In 2010, her book, Women’s Anatomy of Arousal: Secret Maps to Buried Pleasure, was published and received the Book of the Year award from AASECT (the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists).
