Women are paying strangers to touch their vaginas in a bid to improve their sex lives and achieve better orgasms.
Orgasmic meditation (OM) practitioners are holding group masturbation classes to teach women how to climax, promising that the lessons can lead to a “larger state of consciousness, improving intimacy in relationships and generally increasing your orgasm skills”.
During a typical orgasmic meditation class, the woman undresses from the waist down while a total stranger strokes her clitoris for 15 minutes.
But before the fully-clothed stroker starts to massage their partner’s downstairs with the help of organic lube, they describe the vagina they are looking at, going into detail about the colour, texture and shape.
OM participants do the stroking in front of other group members in what’s called a “nest”.
While the session might sound rather sexual there’s apparently “no goal other than to feel, connect and be present”.
It may sound like a bizarre and seedy sex cult, but it’s popularity has been snowballing since it was founded in 2001.
There’s over 10,000 practitioners worldwide and 2,000 already in the UK, attracting a mixed clientele – anything from couples in their early 20s to people in their 80s.
Wow! So what do you think… do you need therapy?
