Everyone wants great sex, you know this, I know this. (Berkeley college kids know this – as seen in this snappy recent sex article.) But sometimes orgasms are complicated, sometimes they’re MIA and sometimes they’re faked. (Guilty, guilty and guilty). OneTaste, a company dedicated to helping people live healthier, orgasmic lifestyles, knows that very well.
So when I agreed to attend a OneTaste seminar downtown on a rainy Saturday morning, (you know, for the sake of journalism) I was expecting a lot of girl talk between just us ladies. I’d been in the Vagina Monologues in college, I enjoyed sex; bring on the climax chat. I arrived at the holiday-decked Hilton hotel, Starbucks in one hand, pen in the other – I was ready.
I was not prepared for the variety at the gathering. There were a few couples, there were some single ladies – but also a large collection of men. A fellow of at least sixty years with cowboy bootssat down next to me in the front row as the seminar began. The two speakers, Marcus and Joann, were well-dressed and smilingly, undeniably at peace. Given the setting, I ventured to think I knew why. Everyone introduced themselves and why they were there, and willingly divulged:
“I want to reintegrate sexuality into my life.”
“I want to be able to get what I want, and give more.”
I had to resist squirming in my seat when it was my turn to share. What? Me talk about my cum history in front of all these dudes? Surprisingly, I opened up: I wanted my next relationship to be more open, I admitted. More honest.
OneTaste was all about that – through Orgasmic Meditation (OM), Joann and Marcus revealed, which was defined as “extended, focused touch” on the woman during an OM. There were plenty of couples at the gathering, but having an Orgasmic Meditation can be strictly business, too, with another OMer found in the OneTaste community, no romance involved. The goal is to get that essential dose of oxytocin (with a helping hand) and gradually start seeing the benefits in all aspects of your life.
Okay, I thought. So, people – strangers – can just get together and have one of these “OM’s” whenever, wherever, without any romantic connotation? But what if I want romance in my orgasms? There was a demonstration between Marcus and another experienced OMer before the lunch break, and no, I didn’t expect to see someone else’s vagina that afternoon. While part of me was mortified to be intruding on something so seemingly intimate (with fifty other people), another part of me was determined to get over myself. Okay, some dude is going DJ-style on another lady on a table in the middle of the room, but you know what? He seemed to have been doing a crackerjack job.
Needless to say it was an eye opening experience.
If you’re single and want your next sexual relationship to be more rewarding (by leaps and bounds), I still recommend the seminar. The community is open to anyone and everyone, and signing up is available on their site.
