Want a Tantra Goddess in the Midwest?

For years, men, women, and couples have been asking me if there are any Tantra teachers in the Midwest. I knew of one in Kansas City, but she disappeared a few years ago. It looks like there are one or two active goddesses in the Chicago area.

I’ve dabbled in it – reading books like Urban Tantra, browsing websites and watching videos, but am by no means an expert.

So over the years I’ve put the word out to the local community seeking tantra experts. I found one man who was willing to speak to my group Sex Positive St Louis, but he canceled two hours before the talk, so I had to wing it!

I talked about my experiences with yoni eggs, energy orgasms, extended orgasms, kundalini, and more.

Recently, we found another man in St Louis named StarDancer who was willing to talk about his energy body work to the group. Hearing him speak really inspired me to investigate the Tantra realm further.

I had a revelation – I want to bring Tantra from a female perspective to St Louis! I already do sex surrogate work as a sacred prostitute, so this seemed a natural step in my career as a sexuality expert.

I found out that Barbara Carrellas is offering a Tantra training workshop in New York City June 10-16. Thanks to some generous sponsors who believe in my mission, I AM GOING. I’m SO excited! It will be my first time in New York City. I can’t wait for an invigorating change of scenery and for my universe to expand!

Barbara was featured on Strange Sex demonstrating her full body energy orgasm technique, aka “thinking off” for a group of scientists. She’s the real deal!

Here is more info – Barbara’s intro on the program

Details about registering for the program

More info on Barbara Carrellas – she’s a certified sexologist who has worked with the likes of Annie Sprinkle teaching Sacred Sex techniques! She’s very inclusive and positive in her teachings – more practical and modern than woo woo, she revels in, teases, and plays with traditional Tantra, all while honoring Tantra’s rich spiritual tradition of connection. She teaches all over the world, so it’s nice having a class offered in the U.S.

I’m excited to bring what I learn back to St. Louis. Thank you for believing in me and helping expand our collective sexual universe!

Sex work can be a beautiful thing.

Kendra, that is an AMAZING idea! Just the other day, I saw a clip from a documentary on sexual energy and tantra, and thought, now THAT sounds right up Kendra’s alley!

Yes. Please do this.

I wish I could sponsor you, but I am not in a position where I could help out. But I really hope this can happen for you.

Love it.

Also, thank you for this wonderful blog/outreach.
