About - Chantelle Otten Sex Therapy



Chantelle was born in Melbourne, Australia and comes from a Dutch background. Her family background sparked her interest in the cultural differences between sexual attitudes, norms and values, and she enjoys travelling the world meeting Sexologists and being educated on the differing sex, sexuality, normality, culture, creativity and language in the countries she visits. She is motivated by the notion that there is no ‘normal’ from culture to culture, and what the expectation are of normal in each country does not necessarily accommodate to each individuals in the countries she meets, every individual is different. Chantelle is currently working on a study of female migraine and sexual functioning.
Chantelle is a supporter of safe and pleasurable sexual health and relationships for everyone.
