A Mutual Safe Space

by Jon

I was an only child growing up in Huntington Beach, California. My parents had stayed married, and I was attending private school, but in the 6th grade, I was put in public school. What a culture shock that was for me! I was picked on a lot, and in high school, I dated only a couple of times. I was an atheist at the time but decided to look into Christianity because many of my friends were Christian. I would get into it, and it would last maybe a few months, but it would never stick. It just wasn’t for me. I was not feeling it.

Discovering Orgasmic Meditation (OM)

I attended nursing school and graduated in 2015. I met and married a woman in college, but we divorced later. I was living in Orange County when a female friend of mine told me about Orgasmic Meditation (OM), which she practiced. Because the nursing program had been so intense and had required so much of my time and focus, I hadn’t dated much after my divorce. I wasn’t feeling very confident with women, so she thought Orgasmic Meditation would be something I might be interested in. I signed up for the introductory class. 

The class was in downtown Los Angeles and consisted of a group of men and women who were all interested in learning about OM. The people and the instructors were all positive and friendly. We did a lot of exercises, talking to new people and communicating. I felt like we were all on the same level. We did this one exercise where we had to tell the person next to us a stream-of-consciousness story we made up on the spot. That was interesting.

Tapping More Into Intuition

While I was there, I saw a demonstration of Orgasmic Meditation (OM). We got into a semicircle to see how the nest was built and how the woman was positioned. I felt hopeful about being able to actually do it myself. I thought it was a good idea to keep the practice in a container with the gloves and do it all the same way every time so it has a solid foundation. 

At first, I did have some difficulty finding someone to OM with, but it all worked out. It was a bit nerve-wracking asking people, and they would say no because I had never done it before. I did understand it, though. People preferred an experienced partner. Eventually, someone asked me to OM. I felt so nervous, but the container really made it feel like a mutually safe space.

My knowledge and skills from Orgasmic Meditation (OM) help me tap more into my intuition, which helps me, as a nurse, sense what people need.
