Talking Sex, Science and Spirituality!

Listen and learn from me, sex and relationship expert Jacqueline Hellyer, and my co-host Xavier Waterkeyn in these 38 episodes of The Tantric Lounge Radio Show. It’s where sex, science and spirituality meet, and everything in between.

In the Tantric Lounge we explore the third wave of sexuality: beyond shame, beyond sleaze, heading towards true understanding and liberation. It’s sex for the seeker, for the explorer, for the thinker.

We’ve been called “The Enlightened Shock-Jocks” as we present sex like no one else - at times deep, at times hilarious, always inspiring. Listen to entertaining conversations with guest Sex Geeks from the leading edge of sexuality, as we discuss everything to do with sex, love and intimacy.

Become sexually confident, sexually empowered, create high-level connected relationships, and find true personal empowerment!

Episode 3:12 Broadening Your Sexual Repertoire

Jacqueline Hellyer - Friday, October 03, 2014

Spice alone tastes terrible, add it to something fundamentally good and it takes it to new realms of experience... Broadening your sexual repertoire and opening up to the amazing life-enhancing potential of a fulfilled sexuality requires a strong basis. If we divide our sexuality into physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sexuality, it’s vital that our emotional sexuality and our spiritual sexuality are developed so that we have the safety and therefore the freedom to explore the physical and mental dimensions of our sexuality, to spice things up.

Episode 3.11: Female Orgasmicness and the New Sexual Revolution

Jacqueline Hellyer - Saturday, September 27, 2014

Jacqueline calls it the Third Wave of Sexuality, today’s guest Sex Geek calls it the New Sexual Revolution. Alison Petrie is a Tantric Practitioner, Healer and Workshop Facilitator. Today we talk with her about this new revolution, what is it, why is Tantra such a big part of it, and what does women’s orgasmicness have to do with it? What is orgasmicness anyway? Find out here, on The Tantric Lounge!

About Today’s Sex Geek: Alison Petrie

Alison began her working life as an IT professional in a busy, corporate, male dominated environment. A need for more meaning, fulfillment and a curiosity for all things spiritual lead to a career change into psychology/counselling and energy healing. Having opened up on many levels through study, yoga, meditation, energy work and psychic development and having always had a healthy interest in sex, the next question emerged “Can sex be even better ?” which started a deep dive into the world of Tantra and Sacred Sexuality and a reclaiming and valuing of her feminine essence and the need for it in the world.

Episode 3:10: All Tied Up in the Japanese Art of Bondage

Shibari - the Art of Japanese Bondage has a long history. What is it exactly, what is its appeal to modern Westerners, why are we discussing it on the Tantric Lounge, why are there photos of Jacqueline being tied up and why is she having trouble speaking?

Shibari is Tantric in essence - it’s about deep connection, sensuality, beauty and poetry. Today we talk to Hebari, head teacher at the Rope Dojo in Sydney’s inner suburbs and curator of the Sydney Rope Festival. Listen and look at photos as he ties Jacqueline up during this episode...

Episode 3.9: Meet the Seven Goddesses of Sex

Jacqueline Hellyer - Saturday, September 13, 2014

On today’s show we’re not interviewing a Sex Geek, we’re talking to Seven Sex Goddesses! Or at least, Jacqueline is introducing us to the concept of the Seven Goddesses of Sex and how accessing their energies can help modern women come into the fullness of their gorgeous sexuality, with stronger self-image, more desire and greater sexual response!

I've been working on this concept for over six years and I've just released the book. Each Goddess is accompanied by a fictional, historical erotic story to convey the feeling of these energies in a way that is accessible for modern-day woman. Then through 24 illustrative erotic stories readers follow the experiences of three fictional modern women as they experience the energy of each Goddess in their lives. I call it educational erotica - written to educate and inspire!

Menopause affects 100% of women who live long enough to experience it. But what exactly is menopause and how does it affect a woman’s sex life and the sex lives of her partners? In this show we’ll be talking to Heather Cameron, Director and CEO of the Menopause Resource Centre, a not-for-profit humanitarian venture dedicated to increasing awareness about menopause and to empowering women about their choices during what can be a challenging time of life and sexual life.

Surprised, amazed and exhausted by menopause’s frequently debilitating symptoms, Heather embarked on a continuing journey to know more about what was happening her body, mind and spirit.

Episode 3:3 The Anatomy of Sex

Jacqueline Hellyer - Thursday, July 31, 2014

The human body is an incredible pleasure machine, the sensations and experiences we can potentially experience are incredible. Until recently though, it wasn’t really an aspect of science that was studied particularly thoroughly. Even today there is a lot that is unknown or unconfirmed. There’s a lot that is though, and it’s a lot more than you would have learned in school sex ed classes (if you were even lucky enough to get sex ed.) That was more about reproduction than sex, more about how to have babies and not have babies, than about pleasure, intimacy and sexual delight. We’ll be joined in this episode with another of Australia’s great Sex Geeks, Cyndi Darnell, who is creating a fabulous project on sexual anatomy. Join us to find out more about your fabulous body and it’s awesome sexual potential!
