Steve McGough DHS


Steve has a Doctorate of Human Sexuality from the IASHS, and a BS in Biochemistry (focusing on nutrition) from UNC-Chapel Hill.  He’s the Director of R&D at Women and Couples Wellness, and an associate professor of Clinical Sexology. Over the last 10 years, he has worked with several thousand women and couples researching female orgasm.  His graduate focus was developing techniques to help women with anorgasmia (inability to achieve orgasm).

He’s the author of numerous books dealing with wellness, massage, and intimacy and is frequently interviewed in Prevention, Women’s Health, Medical Daily, CNBC, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Ask Men, etc.

Steve has been published in academic journals on topics ranging from neuroscience research to sexology.  He has multiple US & International patents in areas for women’s pelvic and sexual health.


His interest in wellness began at 8 by studying Tai Chi and QiGong. As a child, he was morbidly obese but between 11 and 12 years lost over 60 lbs. For the rest of his life, he has studied how diet and lifestyle affect our health.  For over 40 years he has taught martial arts, massage, and Eastern health practices.

A distinction with his approach is the view that sexual health is an integral part of overall health.  From this, Women and Couples Wellness has created highly effective and FUN ways for busy people to relax, improve their health, and supercharge their sex lives including:

– Comprehensive massage, intimacy, and advanced sexual techniques
– Enjoyable, effective ways to lose weight naturally
– Exercises for improving sexual stamina and overall fitness
– Highly effective ways to relax and sleep better
– Improving your self-confidence and expressing your needs

Solutions include online training, live classes through certified instructors, certified training locations, and our flagship product, the hi® full body massager.

He provides lectures and training programs both in the United States and internationally.

Steve lives with his wife Wendy and their daughter in Carolina Beach, NC (USA).
