dc.description.abstractThis research project explores the lived experience of sexual becoming from an existential lens. Research linking philosophical conceptions of existential sexualities with lived experience is lacking in existing academic literature, and this research attempts to give voice to lived experience in the process of sexual becoming. A qualitative framework was employed, using a descriptive phenomenological approach to interview participants and identify themes in the existential process of sexual becoming. Key themes of vulnerability, experience, and supports were identified as helping participants in overcoming barriers to the process of sexual becoming, an experience that was engaged in to foster an end goal of enhanced connection. Implications of the existential process of sexual becoming in counselling practice are discussed.en_US
