What we're about
We are a welcoming and casual Meetup group of gay, bi and curious men aged 21+ seeking to energize our lives through the transformative power of Tantra.
We gather about once a month in Fort Lauderdale for workshops dedicated to educating our members on teachings based on the ancient Taoist practice of Tantra.
This is a membership group comprising volunteers and we exist on love donations for workshop attendance.
If you would like to attend a workshop, you must first apply to be approved for membership — it's free! Once you're a member, you can sign up for any or all workshops. If you'd like a friend or two to join you, please have them follow the same process.
SO WHAT IS TANTRA?
The practice of Tantra is spreading rapidly across North America and there are some misleading representations equating Tantra with sex.
One interpretation we accept is that Tantra is not about sex but rather the use of touch as a path to meditation, relaxation and extended pleasure.
We believe society, at large, has lost almost all understanding of the joys and importance of physical touch. As babies, the first primal way we find comfort is through skin-on-skin contact with our mothers. We learn that caressing and touch provide comfort.
As we become adults, however, that nurturing touch and contact with others lessens. A quick handshake here, a quick hug there. Sex becomes a hurried event.
As adults, we enjoy very little extended touch which, studies show, release an important feel-good hormone called oxytocin. Worse, today's men learned as boys to hide — even be ashamed of — self-touch for the purpose of pleasure.
Tantra teaches us how to get past all that and enjoy both receiving — and giving — touch as a means to elevating our erotic energies and locating deeper levels of pleasure, leading to a more satisfying sex life.
It's what our members are calling "The Tantric Charge."
OUR CORE BELIEFS AND TEACHINGS
We believe all men — and especially men who identify as curious, bisexual or gay — have an instinctual need for bonding with other men.
Our members-only Meetups provide a safe, comfortable and educational experience for interested men to explore the pleasures to be achieved through man-on-man sensual touch.
Our guided, two-hour workshops also allow the opportunity for participants to interact and bond with a number of different men — thereby exploring the power of touch fully.
Our group's core beliefs is that neither an erection nor ejaculation is necessary for a man to achieve and enjoy exhilarating erotic pleasure simply through tantric touch.
Further, we believe and teach that there are many techniques to stimulate erotic energy that many men haven't yet learned how to master, including the use of our breath, tongue, lips, fingers, elbows, toes...
We teach members how to explore their body, and their partner's body, to find previously unknown pleasure zones.
Join us for a workshop to discover the power of Tantra for yourself!
