Healthy Relating
It has often been asked whether sexuality education should be left to the school or to parents and the answer has to be both! Contrary to popular belief, your kids actually want to hear about and learn about sex and sexuality from you!

You are the best person to gauge their child’s physical, emotional and psychological development and also to tailor conversations to their needs and developmental level. Parents who are emotionally close to their children and who are open and honest when discussing sexual health topics have the most success at educating their children.

In this series of Real Sex Ed for Parents by seasoned Relationship Counselor and Clinical Sexologist Dr Martha Tara Lee, she explores a different theme with a sex-positive parent. This month, she invites Founder of Herb in a Cup Balan Gopal on Healthy Relating.

Facilitated by Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in May 2018. In practice for more than 12 years, she is the only certified sexuality educator and certified sexuality educator supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore.

Often cited in the media, Dr. Lee is the appointed Resident Sexologist for, Singapore Cancer Society, and and She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She has published four books: Love, Sex and Everything In-BetweenOrgasmic YogaFrom Princess to Queen and {Un}Inhibited.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
