Practicing Slow Sex

Practicing Slow Sex

Explore the “slow sex movement” with Nicole Daedone, author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm.

Nicole is a speaker, author, and educator focusing on the intersection between orgasm, intimacy, and life. She is the founder of OneTaste, a cutting-edge educational company bringing a new definition of orgasm for both women and men. She is the author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm (Grand Central/Hachette, May 2011) and has appeared on ABC’s Nightline. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and 7×7 Magazine, among others.

The practice at the heart of her work is called OM or Orgasmic Meditation. OM uniquely combines the tradition of extended orgasm with the practice of Zen Buddhism, mystical Judaism and semantics. Helping to foster a new conversation about orgasm —one that’s real, relevant, and intelligent—she has inspired thousands of students to discover the pleasure available to them by making OM a part of their daily lives.

Learn how this shift in thinking and a daily attention to orgasmic pleasure can revolutionize not only your own sexuality, but the foundation of how you think about yourself and how you live in your body.

Excellent education for many.

Making love is a deeply spiritual experience - and as with meditation, one can experience feelings of euphoria and of mystic self-transcendence when you take things slowly ......

Doing something slower is bound to involve more attention and therefore sensitive energy present. The faster, the more lack of control and degree of sensitivity fades.

Tantric is a good lead-in to even more advanced techniques.

Orgasm and spirituality go hand in hand -- it is about having oneness with the universe, about giving over to a higher power, becoming part of the energy... of course the two are intertwined... in a way sex and orgasm are meditation -- meditation you get to do with another person :)

That is really interesting, and it makes a lot of sense. It is awesome how someone can combine different spiritual practices and come up with something so fundamental, after all I've herd it for a long time and that is that sex should be a spiritual experience of itself.
