In an American author and businesswoman named Nicole Daedone gave a TEDx talk in San Francisco in which she spoke of her plans to build an empire on the female orgasm. A tall, self-assured woman in her early 40s, dressed in a black silk trouser suit, auburn hair falling to her shoulders, Daedone did not, of course, put it quite like that. But the result was always the same. And bring it to the world she did. In Daedone founded a group called OneTaste, disseminating it is hard to go far in this tale without stumbling inadvertently across a double entendre the practice of what she called orgasmic meditation, or OM.
But the organisation has now shut down following accusations by former members of the group, with the FBI reportedly investigating allegations of sex-trafficking, prostitution and violation of labour laws. Those of a delicate disposition may choose to turn away at this point. For this is a story of idealism and desire, of Californian sex communes and three-hour orgasms, of the search for Eden and the worms in the apple of power and money. Daedone grew up in the northern Californian town of Los Gatos with her mother, a single parent. At 16, she had sex for the first time, got pregnant and had an abortion.
She studied semantics at San Francisco State University and, with a friend, opened an art gallery in the city. She was 27 when she learned that her estranged father was dying of cancer in prison after being convicted of molesting two young girls. She turned her attention to spiritual matters, studying the Kabbalah and Buddhism. Then she met the man at the party. Since the s, San Francisco had been a Petri dish for alternative thinking, countercultures and free-love communes, steeped in libertarian ideas that would continue to flourish in the tech community of Silicon Valley.
Particular attention was paid to the part the clitoris plays in the female orgasm. In exchange, the strokee would give the stroker a token or a small gift. Former students of Baranco set up their own practices and groups, among them The Welcomed Consensus. Nicole Daedone lived at The Welcomed Consensus for some two years. She also spent time at Morehouse, allegedly suggesting to Baranco that she should be his successor.
But the proposal came to nothing. They had no desire to be mainstream. To this end, she packaged the technique that she called orgasmic meditation. He sets a timer. While Diana had scaled the Himalayan peak of the three-hour orgasm, Daedone set the clock at a more modest 15 minutes. Prospective OM-ers were offered a menu of services and events. OM was the universal panacea for the adventurous and the repressed, the sexually liberated and the exquisite orgasms insecure, the needy, the lonely and the damaged. Silicon Valley was a really great place to market because we could talk in terms of having a new operating system for human exquisite orgasms.
Along with OM-ing came therapy-style exercises and group encounters, dressed in bromides about personal growth. But the intimation that OM was a quasi-spiritual practice was unmistakable. I admired her enormously. At the first introductory event Losada attended with her partner, Daedone and the female leader of the London group demonstrated the technique.
And for me personally and many other women I exquisite orgasms it was very helpful. The suggestion that OneTaste was a cult had been bruited almost since it began, with posts appearing on cult-busting sites alleging it was a money-making operation posing as a therapeutic practice. Daedone was sensitive to the cult accusations. But some people at the heart of the operation could see her missionary zeal transforming into something more extreme. The cult trappings became ever more pronounced.
Buddhist teachings hold that the future Buddha will be called Maitreya. ByOneTaste had become a flourishing business. OneTaste replied that the settlement was confidential, but that it had never required any employee to engage in a sexual act.
The company said that it no longer organised group OMs or leased communal homes in its own name. A BBC Radio 4 podcast, The Orgasm Cult, launched in November last year, brought exquisite orgasms allegations of sales staff being coerced into having sex with wealthy men to entice them to take courses, including one allegation of a young woman being forced into having sex with multiple partners. OneTaste is an organisation that helped individuals to increase health, happiness and connection through methods combining mindfulness and sexuality.
But the OneTaste website no longer exists. And Nicole Daedone? The woman who wanted to turn on the world through touch is also out of reach. Shortly after the Bloomberg revelations, Daedone disappeared. For a while, she was said to be living in Bali and then Thailand. She was last heard of living in Italy with a former OneTaste instructor. But her cult of the orgasm continues to thrive.
