Institute of Pleasure was formed by an interdisciplinary
team of professionals including: gynecologist, psychiatrist,
sexologist, psychotherapist, and educators, encompassing all
areas of mental and sexual health. It was founded on November
2005 at Makatao Spa-Therapies, in Margarita,
We believe in the fundamental need to take care of all the
aspects of the individual’s needs, regardless of sex
or age, to promote sexual health. It is understood that sexual
health is much more than the absence of illnesses or malfunctions.
It includes sexual pleasure and satisfaction which are integral
components of the well-being of the human being.
We incorporate the definition of the World Health Organization
which considers health as the physical, psychological, social,
sexual and spiritual welfare of the person, and not merely
the absence of illnesses. As well as the “Declaration
of sexual health for the millennium" realized at the
XVII World Congress of Sexology and Sexual Education in Montreal,
Canada, in July, 2005 which declares the recognition of sexual
pleasure as a component of the well-being of the human being.
Our philosophy is based on honoring an individual’s
right to sensual and sexual pleasure and satisfaction and
prompting men and women’s well-being to improve the
quality of life through education.
