Q & A’s

Who do I contact if I have technical difficulties?
Email and explain your problem.

How many days/weeks/months will it take me to complete the course?
It will take about 120 hours to complete the course. It’s self-paced, so you you can decide how to fit the time into your schedule.

Here are some guidelines:

  • 2.5 hours weekly = finish the course in about 1 year (52 weeks)
  • 5 hours weekly = finish the course in about 6 months (26 weeks)
  • 10 hours weekly = finish the course in about 3 months (12 weeks)

    Of course, you can work in the course for an hour or less each week. Just know it will take longer to complete. There is no deadline.

You can also set a goal of completing one module . . .

  • each month = 12 months or 1 year to complete the course
  • each week = 12 weeks or 3 months to complete the course

Can a skip ahead in the course to a lesson or topic I want to view before the others?
No, this is a linear course. Every lesson and topic builds on information already given.

Can I go back to a previous lesson or topic and do it again?
Yes! You can go back to any of the previous content that you’ve already covered.

Do I have to write in a journal and make comments in the Forums?
We recommend that you do, but it is up to you. Reflection is an important part of your personal growth. Part of successfully completing the course is participation in the Forums, so you may not be certified as a Bodysex Associate. If you plan to apply for The Bodysex Leadership Program, just know that we will look at your comments in the Forums to help us determine your acceptance.

This course isn’t what I expected. Can I get a refund?
If you are not satisfied, you can request a refund within 30 days of course enrollment. You must have completed no more than the first module in the course to be eligible for a refund. If these terms are met, we will issue the requested refund of the amount paid less $100 to cover our costs. You will be unenrolled from the course, your information deleted, and you will no longer have access to any of the course content. Course tuition is 100% nonrefundable if the request is made after 30 days or if more than the first module has been completed.

I chose a tuition payment plan. What happens if I miss a payment?
Two weeks after a missed payment, we reserve the right to temporarily suspend your access to the online course and Zoom meetings until your payment is received. If you have not made a payment for six months or more, we reserve the right to remove you from the course. To be re-enrolled in the course after six months and before 12 months after your last payment, the balance of your amount due must be paid in full. If no payments have been made for 12 months, we reserve the right to deny enrollment in the course. No refunds will be given for prior payments.

Do you offer scholarships for The Bodysex Experience online course?
Not at this time. We encourage you to browse our many free resources on or look for a less expensive workshop or offering listed on our Events page.

Can I hold a Bodysex workshop after finishing The Bodysex Experience Course?
No. You will need to complete The Bodysex Leadership Program to gain the skills needed to be able to successfully hold the space and support other women in a Bodysex workshop. Only fully certified Bodysex Leaders are permitted to hold workshops.
