Michael grew up in India, birthplace of the Kamasutra, the world’s first sex treatise, and home to many ornate erotic temples. Despite the fact that sexual education was once a norm in Indian society, it has followed the West by turning it into a taboo subject. Of course, this made it all the more important for Michael to explore and learn more! Since the age of 17, it has always been his dream to become a pioneer in the field of sexuality and bring about positive transformation in society.
Michael Charming has been working in the field of sexuality for more than 7 years and has worked with more than 100s of clients over these years. Through his coaching sessions, his clients have improved their relationship, sexual connection and experienced transformational changes in many aspects of their lives. Through his bodywork sessions, many of his female clients have felt profound relaxation, more confidence, rejuvenation, experienced pleasure and emotional light heartedness, sexual revitalisation, release of trauma, whole body orgasms etc.
Michael believes that our inner world works in conjunction with outer world, and as such it is important to give adequate attention on both. He also believes that because relationships often reflect aspects of ourselves that we keep hidden, the relationship is the perfect practice to wake up to creating the life we want. Michael specialises in working with both, men and women whether as individuals or as couples and his areas of expertise includes:
- Deep Dive Desires and Fear Excavation Coaching
- Relationship by Design Coaching
- Amplified Orgasmic Method Coaching
- Sexuality Exploration and Embodiment Coaching
- Emotional Detox and Full Body De-armouring sessions
Michael’s core visions are to help people have more Orgasms, nourishing and fulfilling relationships and more love, happiness and deeper human connection in their life. He believes that there is a big gap in sexual education created by society, parents and schools. He is on a mission to fill the gap so that once our relationship and sex are handled, we can play our part in contributing to society in constructive and positive way and bring the transformation that we all desire.

Business Name: Mjs Magic
Speaking Title: Make It Count. Make It Magic. Make It You!
Founder of In Difference Proud to Be
As the founder of this new business idea I would like to explain what brought me to set up this idea, I wanted to make a difference, as I know what a difference it made to me to feel valued, that’s what made the difference.
A year ago I was very ill and it was at this time that I really looked back at my life and saw just what brought value to my life. I was unable to do much and was reliant on others to do everything for me. Life has given me another chance now, so I decided to try my best to help others feel the same with their disabilities – to feel valued. It was how people treated me that made the real difference to how I felt about myself, it was the simple things that made the difference.
Two of my four children have autism so I understand first hand the difficulties they face and all of us as a family.
I am a fully trained mental health nurse.Through my training, I realized that the cause to many people’s mental health problems came from the pressure of trying to live up to social expectations that we all feel we need to achieve. People often use coping techniques to hide their feelings of failure or social exclusion. So, if you have certain habits or things you cannot control that make you stand out, it becomes difficult to feel the same as everybody else. This made my clients feel inadequate and the truth was, these people were of great value but somehow they did not realize it or feel valued by society.
Its the way you’re treated that makes you feel valued, not what or who you are. That’s where my thinking came from, the time when I realized its not our fault if we don’t function properly or suffer with the loss of a limb. We are all of value just as we are. I am glad to be me, even if i am not able to do what I was able to do before. I like myself with all my differences.
My time at Camphill Communities in Wales taught me that a community can achieve so much by working together with their individual needs and disabilities. They have high respect for one another and have helped each other to overcome their own personal difficulties. These guys really brought me great joy,because they understood me when i was sad. They would come and support me in my time of need – it was a 2 way friendship and these guys were more aware than people without disabilities. It was amazing what they could achieve by working together, focusing on what they can do rather than what they can’t do.
I hope your join me by getting involved in this new venture. With your help I know we can make a difference and change all our lives for the better, its what you all deserve, to be valued and respected, to be given opportunities, to learn new skills and to make new friends. We are all different but that’s what makes us unique – our differences.
