Orgasm: The Broadband of Human Connection

#sxsw #Orgasm


Orgasm is different than what we've been taught.
What is Orgasm?
Science shows Orgasm is a vital nutrient to the body. It activates the parasymapthetic and the sympathetic nervous systems, simultaneously. As a result, Orgasm increases oxytocin, regulates cortisol, decreases belly fat, and reduces depression.

More significantly, Orgasm acts as a sustainable agent igniting a section of the brain giving you the ability to feel human connection in a direct manner. This is a full third of the brain that allows you to feel visceral sensation in your body and tune in to the feeling states of the people around you.

Why Orgasm?
Orgasm has the same fundamental goal as the internet -- human to human connection. Orgasm will do for physical connection what the internet has done for us in terms of virtual connection.

Orgasm creates a high speed, limbic network enabling human connection in an instantaneous manner. Life with Orgasm: The fastest technology to date.



Nicole Daedone



Nicole Daedone is a sought-after speaker, teacher, and author who has spent her groundbreaking career redefining orgasm from a woman’s point of view. Starting with her fundamental belief that a woman’s sex is her power, she treats supposedly taboo subjects with unparalleled humor, intelligence, and insight. Nicole is the author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm (Grand Central/Hachette, May 2011) and is the founder of OneTaste, a company that offers training in orgasm, sex, and man-woman relating through online media and in-person coaching and courses. The practice at the heart of her work is called OM or Orgasmic Meditation. OM uniquely combines the tradition of extended orgasm with Nicole’s own interest in Zen Buddhism, mystical Judaism and semantics. Helping to foster a new conversation about orgasm—one that’s relevant and real—she has inspired thousands of students to make OM a part of their everyday lives. Nicole graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in semantics and gender communication. She went on to found the popular avant garde art gallery 111 Minna Gallery in SoMa before moving on to OneTaste. Nicole has appeared on ABC’s Nightline and NPR’s It’s Your Health. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Time.com, Vanity Fair, and the UK Daily Mail among others, and her writing has appeared in Tricycle magazine. She was a featured speaker at the 2011 TEDxSF conference. In his #1 New York Times Bestseller The 4-Hour Body Timothy Ferriss calls the OM practice “required education for every man on the planet.”
