Nicole Daedone founded OneTaste in the summer of 2004 to create a clean, well-lit place where sexuality, relationships, and intimacy could be discussed openly and honestly. Since then, her vision that sex can be healing, creative, and nourishing—to both the body and the spirit—has inspired thousands of students to make Slow Sex a part of their everyday lives. The practice at the heart of her work, Orgasmic Meditation, uniquely combines the oral tradition of extended orgasm with Nicole’s own interest in Zen Buddhism, mystical Judaism, and semantics. Nicole has appeared on Nightline, her work has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, and the San Francisco Chronicle, among others, and her writing has appeared in Tricycle magazine. Raised in Los Gatos, California, Nicole now lives in San Francisco.
