Some days ago I received an email and it gave me Déjà vu. This story started back in 2022. I had been told that I should explore Tantra on many occasions over the years. Tantra? Should I explore sexuality with random partners and call it spiritual sex? No, thank you, that is not for me, I thought. Maybe it triggered my ultra-Iranian origins ; who … Continue reading A Tantra Way of Living

He claimed that they receive too much visibility from the media and this is a reason for their popularity. He suggested not talking to them, as simple as that.
