In astrology, the 5th house represents the House of Pleasure. The 5th House governs sexual relationships, emotional enrichment and creative self-expression. It is about play for the purpose of pleasure.
In a quest to make sexual education and wellness an international language, The 5th House is a collaborative platform promoting cultural and social dialogue between both established and emerging practitioners, scholars, therapists and thought leaders.
Our mission is to immerse your body, mind and spirit with sex-positive workshops and interactive courses both in person and online, as well as arm you with the tools you need, to take control of your own body, mind, pleasure and relationships.
Connect with a like-minded community as well as with sexual health professionals such as therapists, educators and holistic practitioners on our live courses, who will guide you through your own personal sexual journey.
We are a global community of learning and self-exploration, offering a safe and supportive platform dedicated to discovering healthy pleasure and living a more sexually-fulfilled life.
Meet the founder
Alejandra Welsh is a Sex Educator with a background in Psychology. She believes that sexual wellness and pleasure is a basic human right and her life's mission is to create a more empowered and shame-free world where everyone can be their own sexual expert!
Growing up internationally from South East Asia to the Middle East, South America to Europe, Alejandra identifies as a Third Culture Kid (TCK). In short, this means she was brought up on the values and culture of her parents whilst also embracing the wildly different cultures of the countries she lived in; thus creating her very own third culture.
She was brought up around many different cultures, languages, traditions, races and classes. Nothing has been more eye-opening and enriching than truly being a nomad of the world.
However one global common denominator has always been the topic of sex. Sex was seen as taboo and pleasure was never part of the conversation. Slut shaming went unnoticed and 'boys shouldn't cry' was the norm. Unfortunately, this still seems to be the case today, no matter where you were brought up.
The purpose of Alejandra's work is to provide the world with comprehensive and holistic sex education which is culturally relevant and scientifically backed. Her mission is to immerse you in a world of sex and body-positive art, music, literature and culture so that sex no longer has to be taboo.
