Education and Stuff about me. I might not be the best self promoter or of the youngest or sexiest Tantra teacher out there. And I do not sell myself on my sex appeal, because seriously I am 61. I have a lot to offer, but being young and sexy isn’t one of those things. But I am probably one of the smartest and best educated and most well read Tantra Teachers.
Education: A lot. You can read it if you want. I.Q. 150

I worked 15 years as a business owner and teacher
After a divorce I worked as a counselor. I specialized in treating depression, PTSD, and anxiety. Guess what drugs and talking do not work.
The last 4 years I have been doing Tantra bodywork professionally and I have enjoyed it very much. I have had really good experiences, I have met really good people, and I have learned a lot.
A few things I learned:
1-Men worry about their penis size more than I realized. They shouldn’t.
2-Men do want to connect deeply with their partner.
3-Men are just as confused as women are about relationships communicating about sex and wanting intimacy.
4-Men and Woman are more alike than different. We want the same things, intimacy, connection, peace of mind, good health.
5-Sexless marriages are bad for both partners. There can not be true intimacy, true love without sex, good sex.
Things I believe in with all of my heart.
And a power greater than myself.
