Moushumi Ghose, MFT or Mou has been an advocate for healthy sexuality for more than 3 decades. She became a therapist in 2007 specializing in sex-positive sex therapy that is trauma-informed.
As a queer identified South Asian - Indian person born to immigrants, it took Mou a while to recognize the true path to her own healing was through creativity, pleasure, and community, and even more specifically, the support of the queer community.
Finding communities that support art, resistance and uprising is the key to healing. As an activist it has been Mou's journey to provide a safe space for this discovery, understanding, and exploration for others.
As a writer and musician first, Mou knew she had to find her voice, and it was ultimately through working with others to find their voice around sexuality, gender expression and relationships that she was also able to find her.
Mou's clients and students are her teachers as well.
Moushumi opened her private practice in 2007 in West Hollywood, CA and her practice Los Angeles Sex Therapy was born!
And, the Documentary Film Series, Temples and Brothels.
For many years Mou hosted The Sex Talk Series on Youtube, as well as the wildly fabulous Sexy Saturdays at The Liberace Penthouse in West Hollywood, CA (both those were so much fun!!). She still makes videos and hosts workshops....
