We're taking a deep, practical dive into developing what I call the intimacy and experiential dimensions of your sexuality and your experience of sex. This is primarily relevant for people who are interested in relationships, or they're already in relationships. However, as usual, I think this is all great stuff for everyone to learn in preparation. There are some great takeaways on how you may be looking at and approaching sex in a way that really limits your experience of it, and the experience of your partners with it also.

We'll be touching on Tantra as that is the origin of todays guest's work. But also moving way beyond that, as she has moved beyond traditional Tantra herself to explore the orgasmic experience. We're fundamentally getting pass simply having an orgasm to a more profound and involved experience.

If you don't know much about Tantra, it's probably a good idea to check out some of our previous episodes on Tantra. So you can check out episode 73, which was Demystifying Tantric Sex and Tantra (with Mark Michaels & Patricia Johnson), and then come back here to get the more advanced session.

Today's guest is Diana Richardson. She's spent most of her life studying Tantra, what she sees as the union of sex and meditation. She started teaching to couples in 1993 - so that's 22 years ago, over two decades of experience - and her first book was published in 1999. Now if you check out amazon.com, you'll see that she's a prolific writer on Tantra, Tantric sex, and human sexuality. She has seven books and all of them pretty much have five star ratings across the board. So her work is really appreciated.

She leads seminars around the world, and she does this with a direct, practical approach to teaching sex and meditation so people, in particular couples, can evolve their sexuality, their love, their intimacy, and their experience of orgasms.

As you know, we love practical stuff on this show. It's a great pleasure to have Diana with us.
