When I Fuck Up, Maybe I'm Doing It Right

Nov 8, 2015
Hello again, my internet friends. I learned something miraculous today. I wanted to make sure I shared it. It was an epiphany - I have them every now and again, and if I don't write them down or tell 7 people, I'm likely to forget. I love learning. I've always wanted to know things, to understand …

My Sex is Not Separate From the Rest of Me

Nov 7, 2015
I've spent most of my life like this: So, I unconsciously put my sexuality in lockdown. By not having permission to express it, I just completely forgot that it existed. And the only times it was allowed to come out and play tended to be when I’d had enough alcohol to be bold enough to let it …

Loving Another Woman's Husband

Nov 7, 2015
It's funny what an OM can do. When I woke up this morning I checked my phone and found that my ride to the meeting in Albany had cancelled, so I planned to stay in bed in the sunshine and read my novel. My flatmate had already asked if I was coming to morning practice, but I said I was going to …

Forever Claiming the Key to My Freedom: My Tattoo

Nov 7, 2015
I turned 40 this year.  I have no idea what that means but it feels interesting. I went 40 years of my life with no markings on my body other than a few scars…the most noteworthy were on my hands from my best friend growing up. We got in a fight when we were in middle school and started pinching …

I just finished taking a OneTaste course called Taboo. On the first night, we talked about how one of the most taboo things we run into in relating with other people is vulnerability. Brené Brown, a research professor who studies vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, says that the first …

My Fortunate 500 - Five Hundred OMs and Counting

Nov 6, 2015
There was a moment during my last OM when my upper body felt a lightness and my lower body felt heavier, more grounded. I also felt more present than I usually do in an OM. But that might've been my imagination, my story. Why? Well, because I am an animal with ten counting fingers, and my number …

The Man I Get to Be On the Other Side of Male Conditioning

Nov 5, 2015
I’ve been OMing for five years and I feel in many ways I am just learning who I am. Here are a few things I am learning. I am a deeply feminine man. Form does not come naturally to me.  I run a business. I feel my way through things, I have no moral problem with regularly changing my position on …

Orgasm Meets Attorney: At the Crossroads

Nov 5, 2015
She answered my question very matter of factly, then paused and said, "Now let me look at you." We were at a five day retreat near Mt. Shasta and Nicole Daedone was with us at a Members and Intensive dinner. "Oh," she took a breath, "You're at a crossroad. And you can go …

The Origin Story of My Orgasm

Nov 3, 2015
Every great superhero (and supervillain) has an origin story. Even the Bible has one, and what’s good enough for Superman and Jesus is good enough for me. One of the top questions I get as a practitioner of Orgasmic Meditation is: “How did you get started with this?” It started when I admitted to …

Our Room, Our Relationship

Nov 3, 2015
I feel like I should tell you all the pieces you don’t know: like, how I went from teaching preschool to Orgasmic Meditation. Or how I finally fell in love and found partnership by breaking my own rules. Or how saying yes to my desire brought me from the sunshine of Los Angeles to the “winter is …
