“The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal is online video education that explores sexual pleasure and sexual anatomy from a sex positive perspective. Written and presented by a sex educator and therapist, Cyndi Darnell, this video is an excellent resource for adult individuals interested in learning about their bodies and having fulfilling sexual experiences with their partners. The video series provides scientifically accurate and pleasure-based information about the anatomy of the vulva, the penis, and the anus, and the physiology of orgasm and ejaculation, in an entertaining manner.” The American Journal of Sexuality Education – Lorena Olvera Moreno.
“In the twentieth century I knew more about meridians and chakras than vestibular bulbs, the vas deferens and the amazing potential of the smooth muscle tissue of the inner anal sphincter. One of the best somatic sex education resources I have encountered is Cyndi Darnell’s video guide “The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy & Arousal”. Cyndi created this resource for people who like sex and for those who want to like sex better. I wish this were available 30 years ago”. – Joseph Kramer –Visionary and Creator of Sexological Bodywork
“Attending your presentation of two atlas modules was an eye-opener for me—thank you! If only the Atlas of Erotic Anatomy & Arousal could be taught in Junior High Schools—it would save so many lives. Your presentation is friendly, non-threatening, and warmly funny. I was completely engaged with the video, and I look forward to seeing it many more times, cuz I learned so much in just one viewing! The atlas is a game-changer for transgender people, especially those who are considering genital surgery. Most of us modify our genitals for the sake of realness, and a personal sense of integrity. Very few of us go into gender confirmation surgery with the knowledge of how this might really effect our sex lives. What’s more, the atlas is a must-see for every doctor and therapist who care for trans people. Bless your heart for putting together such a loving, funny, and important tool for all of us”. – Kate Bornstein. Author of Gender Outlaw, My Gender Workbook and Queer and Pleasant Danger.
“Darnell is the star of one of the most inspiring series of videos about sex that I have ever seen. The Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal is an online video adult education series featuring the vivacious Darnell explaining a range of fascinating topics:
- Understanding the Erotic Anatomy of the Penis.
- Everything you need to know about the vulva
- The hidden world of the G Spot, Orgasm and Ejaculation.
- A beginner’s guide to pleasurable and healthy anal sex.
Darnell very effectively uses humour and her unique light and chatty manner to teach us all about understanding and pleasuring these regions of the body. She shows us around the sexual anatomy using wonderful diagrams and even more important, incredibly explicit photographs.
I marveled at the great shots of the man’s perineum with Darnell showing exactly how best to apply pressure in that region to increase male pleasure. I loved the sequence teaching you to handle the penis – which gave me some great ideas! Plus the incredibly clear photos showing the different discharges emerging from the cervix at varying stages of the menstrual cycle – so reassuring for any woman who has wondered if her messy knickers are normal.
I really recommend the whole series very highly.” – Bettina Ardnt. Sex and Relationships Columnist. The Australian.
“I have been working in sex education for over 16 years now and I can truly say that Cyndi Darnell’s Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal really is a revolution in sex education and one of the best practical and down-to-earth sex education resources I have ever seen. This video series offers you all the information you need about sex and the body to really know how our bodies work for pleasure, and how to make your connections more fun and fulfilling. Blending science with straight forward knowledge, technique and humor, Cyndi’s whimsical and empowering videos guide you through the all the questions you have about how and why sex works they way it does and how we can enjoy ourselves more; no matter our gender, our genitals or our identity. This video series is a must have for sex educators and lay people alike.” – Tristan Taormino. Author, Sex Educator, Film Maker.
“In my ten years working as a sex therapist I have not seen educational material as good as Cyndi Darnell’s Atlas of Erotic Anatomy and Arousal. It is straightforward, easy to understand and damned good sex education for adults. It is relevant for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation or any sexual preferences you may have.
Cyndi has collaborated with anatomists, medical specialists, researchers, teachers, practitioners and sexual health professionals from all around the world to produce this first-class education tool.
She has broken things down into 4 parts: Vulvapalooza – the vulva, anatomy and arousal; Squirts and Gushes – about the G-spot and ejaculation; The Penis is Mightier than the Sword – the penis anatomy and arousal; and Butt That’s Not All – a beginners guide to anal sex.
Cyndi walks viewers through anatomy, physiology, physiological responses to arousal and much more. She takes the time to dispel myths and to tell us what feels good and importantly what DOESN’T feel good. She is easy to understand, uses the right amount of humour and addresses the questions many people are too afraid to ask.
I recommend Cyndi’s videos to many clients and they agree, it is educational, its fun and they have found the content extremely relevant. They learnt a lot! If you are a sex educator or teacher, this is mandatory viewing. If you want to learn more about sex, your body, arousal systems, look no further. Five Stars.” Tanya Koens.
