Masturbation May: A Daily Orgasmic Yoga Practice for a Month

May 1, 2016

I have had a steady Orgasmic Yoga practice since November 2015. Once a month, and (for a time) once a week for Six Weeks, I’ve facilitated an Orgasmic Yoga circle. The circles have varied a little bit. Some were larger than others. Each time, there has been a blend of familiar faces, friends, and some people who were new to the practice.  Six months of a consistent, communal practice of mindful masturbation. That just hit…

Originally developed by Joseph Kramer, it is a way to teach and facilitate embodiment through conscious breath, movement, touch, and sound.
