Nicole Daedone (Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm)
Tuesday, July 26th, 6 pm, at Book Passage SF (1 Ferry Building)
Daedone, founder of the SOMA collective OneTaste, is committed to helping women achieve better orgasms through a practice known as orgasmic meditation, or OM. She recently hosted a pop-up space on Sutter St. to promote her new book on the subject, from which she'll read on Tuesday at Book Passage. Though the pop-up shuttered on July 18th, potential converts are encouraged to pick up the book or stop into OneTaste's regular digs at 1080 Folsom St.
Not since Samantha Jones has a woman brought the female orgasm to heightened awareness. But this time, it's not HBO, it's reality. OneTaste founder Nicole Daedone is bringing her conversation about slow sex to the streets via a pop-up called "Project Orgasm Is...". The art installation and yoga spread triples as a space where you can get a taste of the orgasm entrepreneur’s teachings. The previous Loehmann's men's store on the corner of Sutter and Kearny just got a lot more interesting.
Men and women have been flocking to Nicole Daedone’s OneTaste in SoMa for her relationship, sexuality, and couples workshops for six years now. Some go on to the resident program and orgasmic meditation (OM) practice—more on that later. In May, she releases Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm, a guide to more intimate, even spiritual, sex.
