Colin Richards

Sex & Relationship Engineer

I have been working in the field of psychosexual health and sexual intimacy since 2005. I created Intimacy Matters in 2012 and since then I have helped over 6000 people in many aspects of their relationships and sexuality. I have discovered and use various different approaches that are not generally covered by conventional methods, to help people in this intimate part of their life   My approach could be described as humanistic in that I look at the biological, psychological, social, anthropological and sexual influences behind our sensual desires, curiosities and fears. I work with men women and couples of all sexual orientations. I offer sensual massage treatments, psychosensual treatments and  I run individual and group workshops to enhance sexual confidence and sex play skills.  I give public talks and run social events. I am based in Central London. – Read More

Sensual Massage For Women Men & Couples

What is a Sensual Massage?

A sensual massage is given with a genuine sense of care and intimacy – incorporating relaxation, pleasure and arousal of the body. It combines traditional therapeutic massage with intended sensual arousal and erotic stimulation. Receiving a sensual massage produces immediate physical and emotional benefits. When we are touched and particularly when receiving sensual, arousing touch, remarkable things happen to our bodies. Doctors and scientific researchers are increasingly discovering the fantastic benefits to health and well-being that regular sexual arousal produces. Here are some facts.  Read More

Psychosensual Treatment

The Psychosensual Treatment for women, men and couples

Help with sexual performance, inability to orgasm and overcoming fears around physical intimacy and sex.

I trained in therapeutic and Swedish massage in 1995. In 2010 I completed a two-year training in Psychosexual and Relationship Counselling and in 2011 I studied the Imago Relationship Process. Since then I have given over 10,000 hours or treatments. Rather than offer my bodywork and my counselling experience separately, I saw a benefit to combining these to create an integrative treatment that could both emotionally and practically support men, women, and couples who were experiencing sexual performance problems. I called this treatment Psychosensual Therapy. [Read more]

Private Workshops

I run various types of private workshops teaching men, women and couples how to improve their knowledge and skills in psychological foreplay, practical sex play and fulfilling lovemaking. These workshops can be tailored to your specific needs and can be arranged at a time to suit your schedule – day, evening or weekends. Based on teaching sensual massage techniques, these workshops give you the chance to practise on selected volunteers (male or female) or your partner. Workshops range from the 2 hour experiential, 5 or 10 hour personal training, to the 20-hour professional training. [Read More]
