One Taste meditation classes focus on orgasms — and women obviously love it.
“You do it like a meditation practice, or like a yoga practice,” Maya Block, Vice President of the practice, explains, “except it’s for your sex life.”
Orgasmic meditation is a partnered practice where a partner strokes and women’s clitoris for 15 minutes. But the practice is not about climaxing.
“We teach not to have a goal, because oftentimes goals, especially in our sex life, really have us get into our head.” Block explains. “Unhooking our mind from the destination and really being present to the whole process.”
Block says she had difficulty connecting with her body.
“I had no idea how to express the whole world inside of me.”
So, she opted to try out orgasmic meditation and finally found her answer. She explained that it afforded her a rich experience of intimacy in every part of her life.
And the practice isn’t just for women — men can indulge in the process to practice emotional intelligence and empathy. During sex, men usually gauge women’s reactions, but during the meditation, the partners are asked to look away from one another so that they can feel and connect more deeply with each other.
