"Orgasmic Meditation" is a thing, and you need just 15 minutes to try it
Meditation can help with a lot of different things. Most of us know it can slow down a racing mind, help connect you to your breath, and even boost your mood. However, some of us might not realize that meditation can also help you to connect with your body on an intimate, and rather pleasurable, level. Yes, we’re talking about sex. And thanks to practices like orgasmic meditation and tantra, “feeling yourself” is just as achievable in the meditation room as it is in the bedroom. If you’re looking for a meditation practice that awakens your mind, soul, and nether regions, you might consider adding some sacred sex into your spiritual routine.
Work your way into Nirvana with “Orgasmic Meditation”
With life becoming so much busier, it has become increasingly important for people to find time to slow down and meditate. To answer the people’s need to de-stress and detoxify, new practices have come up and been invented like the use of quick and easy meditation apps…and now, another company is claiming another way people can achieve Nirvana. Okay, the practice itself is not new (it’s old as time itself)—but the methodic way in which they presented it is pretty novel. Let me introduce you to “Orgasmic Meditation” also known as “OM” which Khloé Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by.
Why Orgasmic Meditation May Be the Relaxing Technique You Need
Orgasmic meditation (or “OM” as its loving, loyal community members call it) is a unique wellness practice that combines mindfulness, touching, and pleasure.
For the uninitiated, it’s a partnered experience of stroking around the clitoris for 15 minutes, with only one goal: let go and feel.
Um, Excuse Me, But Did You Know Orgasms Have 8 Stages?
First, you have to wrap your mind around the number four, which is the number of stages the legendary sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson said are contained in the human sexual response. From what they observed in the 1960s, people go through the following stages when they're aroused: excitement, plateau, orgasm, resolution. Think about your own recent orgasms and this probably makes sense.
Sex Files: Orgasmic Meditation – It’s A Real Thing
With age and experience, my relationship with sex has evolved to a healthier, happier place, but there are still times when I feel like I’m racing towards the climax finish line. My mind is distracted and I feel like I’m performing sex, rather than being present in the moment.
What if there was a way to help slow everything down, be more present and well, enjoy more of the overall journey?
The Orgasm Myth Podcast
Nicole Daedone is a longtime proponent and teacher of a practice called orgasmic meditation, which has been called the yoga of sex. She’s also the author of Slow Sex, and she unpacks the complexities surrounding orgasm like no one we know. In today’s conversation, she tells us why climax is just like sugar or a drop in the ocean and how to get to the real thing we’re looking for. We talk about allowing feeling to take precedence over how things appear. And we see how she’s redesigning sexuality and sexual practices that have previously been defined by men but really serve no one today.
Scientists study the healing power of sex
As our Brain Power TODAY series continues, Maria Shriver looks at the largely unknown territory of how intimacy affects the brain, now being explored by researcher Nicole Prause. If sex is found to have health benefits, it could one day be prescribed by doctors just like other therapies.
How orgasmic meditation is changing male attitudes to sex

Orgasmic Meditation Is a Thing—Here's What You Need to Know
Ultimately, Daedone hopes to see a shift in our approach to sexuality similar to the one we've seen in our approach to food over the past few years. "We have this basic idea that more and faster is better," she said, but we're beginning to appreciate that "slow and connected" can be even more powerful.
I Went To An Orgasmic Meditation Workshop & Here's What I Learned
I haven't looked at sex the same way since, and I would highly recommend orgasmic meditation to anyone who wants to explore orgasm and redefine pleasure for themselves. Even if you don't adopt the practice regularly, it will probably end up changing the way you think about receiving pleasure and remind you just how complicated and powerful your clitoris is. At least, that's what it did for me.

Orgasmic Meditation Might Be the Answer to Your Sex Rut
If you've been hearing a lot about orgasmic meditation lately, you're not alone: In recent years, the technique has gone from something of a taboo to a pretty commonly used (and talked about) form of alternative meditation. But what is it, and what (if anything) can it do for you?
Orgasmic Meditation Finally Made Sex Fun for Me
Because of my regular OM practice, I don't put as much pressure on myself to climax as I used to. I have this dream that one day I can get off my anti-anxiety medication and maybe that will release the Kraken. But if not, that's okay too. My sex life might not have a traditional "happy ending," but it does have an unconventional one.
