Nicole Daedone is a sought-after speaker, author, and educator focusing on the intersection between orgasm, intimacy, and life. She is the founder of OneTaste, a cutting-edge company bringing a new definition of orgasm to women. 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 real, relevant, and intelligent—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 is the author of Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm (Grand Central/Hachette, May 2011) and has appeared on ABC’s Nightline. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and 7×7 Magazine, among others, and her writing has appeared in Tricycle magazine. 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.” For more about OneTaste and OM, visit onetaste.us.

  1. David Suzuki is a fraudster criminal. I hate him with all my heart.
    The sun heats the earth Dave, you criminal. I have a PhD in chem. eng. and do not support the garbage GHG-GW theory.
    People please go to the petition organization to understand the real reasons for climate change.
    BTW – people don’t vote because there is no vote. The head politicians are owned by the banksters.
    David needs to be guillotined, and I look forward to that day.
    Again, David you are a real piece of shit.

  2. 1) You need a collective ideology that transcends belief systems, cultures, nations, communities etc..
    2) You need to use media to propagate this message.
    3) It must be short & sweet. Use simple slogans.
    4) Create a GLOBAL INSTITUTION for your GLOBAL FOLLOWERS ( like Starbucks, McDonald or the church)
    5) reward them with a new community and give them instructions on how to conduct themselves in the presence of other followers.

    I’m an athiest and i would sign up for the right ideology…

  3. you are the world and the world is you..so take responsibility for your own state of consciousness.. and this has multiple and manifold effects…

  4. @duffmcduffee – OneTaste doesn’t equate “orgasm” and “climax”. We extend the orgasm to continue to sensation beyond what anyone thinks is possible. Check out OneTaste.us for more information. I think we’re saying the same thing.

  5. Not all sex-positive “sexperts” agree that orgasm, male or female, is either required or desired. Practitioners of karezza avoid orgasm in favor of heightened pleasure through “bonding behaviors” like skin-to-skin contact, eye gazing, etc.

    Marnia Robinson, in her well-articulated book Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow, gives neurological and anecdotal evidence that for at least some percentage of people, orgasm leads to mood disturbances and even increased likelihood of infidelity.

  6. Wow! Proof that the world HAS changed… it’s about time!
    Great job Nicole! Thank you for standing up and speaking what has needed to be said for a LOOOONG time!

  7. Technique is described in detail in “the 4-hour body” (Tim Ferriss’ book, quoted in the description)

  8. @greenelf12 @sirnose Oxytocin also causes uterine contraction during birthing.I have birthed 6 children and would describe childbirth as very intense orgasmic experiences.

  9. Turned on women around the world led by Western woman ARE changing the world…Brilliant… thanks for speaking out Nicole….the world is starving for natural intimacy and physical pleasure …

  10. @bastiat6865 The word orgasim? it dosen’t, “Pranic energy; life force energy, may be distilled into many facets of human existence” -If that is what she means she dsen’t make it clear or much of anything to be honest. I’ve made several comments already, I feel I hve to keep repeating myself, but to sumerise she apears to have a one cure fits all atitude when in relaity some people are just arn’t that sexual and some have a diffrent “truth” at the source of tmenselves.

  11. @greenelf12 orgasm does not mean only “sex”. Pranic energy; life force energy, may be distilled into many facets of human existence. Why does that statement induce such vitriol for you?

  12. So, um…

    Is there a point in the video that I can skip to that shows techniques to ensure that women orgasm? I don’t want any woman to know me as the guy that couldn’t make them cum. I’m sure most guys feel the same.

  13. @greenelf12 totally hear you about the “cure all” stuff. She definitely sees the world her way. I’ve seen her speak a few times in SF and I’m familiar with some of the reference material she uses to back up what she says. There is this book called A General Theory of Love as well as a book called The Chemistry of Connection that talks about Oxytocin being the neurological glue that has us feel connected to other people. Oxytocin is released in few times, one being in orgasm. Fascinating to me.

  14. @sirnose It’s not just there though the whole thing seems to be filled with a cure all mentality, I dunno I’d probably have to talk to her personaly because she keep’s banging on about just one thing it look’s like she lacks a wholelistic perspective. Also i’m not sure if Orgasim and Oxytocin is exactly the same thing, so am not entirly sure what you are geting at there.
