What we're about
Welcome to the Austin OM Community meetup page! We are very excited that you have found your way into an exhilarating new way to experience sexuality, relationship dynamics, and communication!
First, let me say that if you have any questions about this amazing practice or our events, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our group organizers. I also want to quickly mention that this group is no longer run by OneTaste. We are a privately run group of Orgasmic Meditation (OM for short) Practitioners in the Austin area and we are grateful to OneTaste for bringing the experience of OM to the world on a larger scale.
The Austin OM Community Meetup page offers many events for both practitioners who have already been formally trained and for those who are simply curious or intrigued about OM and would like to know more. If you are one of the curious, we hope you will use us as a resource to answer any questions you may have. If you have already been formally OM trained, we welcome and encourage you to come out and meet the gang!
Austin OM Community is a community of people who know the importance of practice, who gather together to have honest conversations and add the element of practice to relationship, orgasm, and intimacy.
Our MeetUp events are designed to introduce you to the wide spectrum of what's possible with orgasm, our incredible community, and Orgasmic Meditation (OM).
You can participate at whatever level feels good to you.
What is OM?
Orgasmic Meditation (OM) is a practice that combines the power and attention of meditation with the deeply human, deeply felt, and connected experience of orgasm.
What is OMing?
A 15-minute partnered, consciousness practice, where one partner strokes the other one's clitoris for 15 minutes with no goal other than to feel and be present.
There’s an important distinction that’s worth making between climax and the orgasm state. Climax is a few seconds of physical experience, whereas the state of orgasm is continuous—allowing OMers to access optimal state of consciousness brought about by the activation of the sex impulse.
When harnessed consciously, orgasm can enhance us as human beings. Science and experience agree - orgasm can incline people towards empathy, connection, and generosity. Orgasm magnifies, intensifies, and vivifies everyday experience, not by altering it, but by revealing it in its true nature and has astounding implications for our health, happiness, and relationships.
To learn more, watch the founder of OM, Nicole Daedone’s TED talk ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9QVq0EM6g4 )
Currently, we meet every Saturday at 6:30 pm for Community Dinner! This event is open to all and a great place to meet experienced practitioners to talk with them about their practice or set up OM partners if you have already been formally OM trained. It is also a casual setting to just have fun connecting with some great people! We meet upstairs at Central Market 4001 North Lamar Blvd. Please look for the white sign, stating "I am Turned On!"
We hold a weekly OM Practice Group for practitioners that have been formally OM trained every Sunday at 6 pm. The locations are on a rotating schedule, please contact us for this information, if you are formally trained and would like to attend. If you are unsure of what constitutes “formally trained”, please contact us for more information. We often have additional OM practice groups or workshops and will be updating the meetup as they occur.
Every Sunday at 7 pm, we hold Gender Groups, where both men and women can discuss the intricacies of this revolutionary practice with other men or other women. This is a great place to get support or have questions answered or just be seen and heard in your human experience. This event is open to all who are 18 and older and interested in OM. This location also rotates, please contact us for ways we can get you connected on threads or in person, so you don’t miss a thing!
All of our events are drug and alcohol free, but full of connection!
Our events are currently donation based only and there is no set fee or charge to attend our events. We loosely suggest a $5 donation per meetup to offset costs.
---We use a Whatsapp thread that's exclusive to formally trained OM practitioners within our community to stay connected, discuss OM related topics, and post the details of our events. The meetup is for community outreach purposes and those who are curious to learn more about the practice.
***The RSVP's on Meetup are not indicative of the number of attendees for each Meetup.***Please do not let this deter you from RSVP'ing, however, if you plan to attend, so that we can look for you to arrive and make sure you get to the right place!
Please reach out to one of the Austin OM Community organizers, if you would like to learn more about this practice or have any questions about a specific event.
We look forward to Meeting Up with YOU!

In case you’ve forgotten the potency of this practice and why we love it; I’ve included a few of my favorite Nicole Daedone quotes that speak to the heart of what OM is really all about.
“I learned some key things in that time that I am bringing to you. The first is that female orgasm is vital for every single woman on the planet. The second is that it is not so bad for the guys either. The third, and on a much more serious note, is that it roots our fundamental capacity for connection. “
“For the first time in my life I felt like I had access to that hunger that was underneath all of my other hungers, which is a fundamental hunger to connect with another human being.”
“The only difference is that you get to be absorbed there with your partner.You get to have this most profound and deep experience with another human being.”
“There is no way you ever, ever, ever could have convinced me to try this thing. What happened was I tried it, and that convinced me.”
“The best thing you have to lose is that sense of hopelessness that you will ever be reached deep inside. I set about this journey, and I can tell you that there was a moment when I received a stroke that could never be taken back. It was a stroke where I knew I had been returned to my birthright of my capacity to perceive and receive pleasure.”
“It's going to be a very different definition of orgasm than we know. It is not going to be that fleeting moment of climax that seems to take the whole rest of the act hostage; it's going to be a definition of orgasm that actually works with the woman's body.”
“The status quo is there to douse potential fires. You are here to start them.” - The Turned On Women’s Manifesto
" There is an underlying intelligence that runs through all of us that we have either plugged into or not."
"Those that are plugged in recognize each other in a way that feels ancient and familiar."
"The one who gets vulnerable first wins."
"Your desire wants great things for you."
"Orgasm is the best teacher I know for how to be human."
"What I've discovered is that in every single world the most taboo thing is vulnerability."
" I don't imagine that there's anything more interesting than total absolute immersion into orgasm and all of the beautiful animation that arises from that."
“No pants are the best pants.”
Ha! Just kidding! That last one isn’t Nicole, We just liked it :)
