Orgasmic Meditation(OM) is a sequenced practice in which one partner gently strokes the other partner’s clitoris for 15 minutes. The result is said to be therapeutic, rather than sexual. The “stroking” allegedly activates the limbic system and releases a flood of oxytocin.
The technique was originally billed as a spiritual-style practice like meditation, but as it gains popularity, it’s being presented as more of a “technological innovation” or “body-hack to happiness.”
For Orgasmic Meditation coach Maya Gillberg from New York and her clients, sex is not about reaching a climax. “The orgasm is not a happening but a state of being.
It is more a constant wave than one point to reach. ‘OM’ training is a 15 minute exercise in pairs, where it’s all about the female orgasm and stimulation of the clitoris. Good ‘OM’ does much more than give your sex life a boost: “It makes you a complete human being,” says Maya.
