Partnerships with other organizations are a vital manifestation of our mission as the 4-D Network.

We choose partnerships in which we share common visions of positive growth and change–personal, cultural, and spiritual, and with whom we can fully collaborate, in the understanding that in working together we are far more powerful than we are working in competition with each other.

For this notion of organizational partnership I thank cultural historian Riane Eisler, a generous mentor over the years. She is author of many books and founder of the Center for Partnership Studies.



Sex Coach University is the world’s premier training and certification organization for sex coaching. We have trained students in over 46 countries around the world to become Certified Sex Coaches, Clinical Sexologists and Sex Experts.

Sex Coaching is the fusion of Clinical Sexology, which is the study of human sexuality, with results-oriented Applied Coaching. At Sex Coach University we train professionals who enable clients to resolve and overcome their sexual concerns.

This is a new and exciting field and we are passionate about bringing sexual empowerment and healing to everyone.

Our mission:

  • Provide the most comprehensive, client centered and holistic training in Clinical Sexology and Applied Coaching.
  • Provide students certification and accreditation so they can hold their heads high among their professional peers.
  • Create a global community of Sexologists to work together to bring about change.
  • Position students as sex experts, and to be part of the global sex expert community.
  • Train students to build a thriving sex coaching business that is in line with their values, and that attracts a steady stream of clients.

At Sex Coach U we envision a New Sexual Revolution where everyone is sexually empowered and healed on all levels, which can only be achieved if we work together.
