Interview With Joy:

How did you become a Tantric Intimacy Coach?

Because of the intense sexual, emotional, and physical abuse I suffered as a child, during my teens I continued to be the victim of abuse. Although it is a controversial point of view, I truly believe that the abuse I endured is part of the reason that I am able to connect so deeply with people from all walks of life and from all sexual backgrounds.

As I began my transformational journey, I realized that I was a broken woman. The damage was mainly evident in my communication style and in my sex life. I was either pretending and performing for the pleasure of my partner, or completely shut down with little to no interest in sex.

As a result, I suffered from a variety of feminine issues (ovarian cysts, intense menstrual pain, and a series of miscarriages). At some point I decided to take charge of my sexuality. My path began with reading all the related books I could get my hands on.

As I became more confident, I started attending workshops on sacred sexuality, Tantra, and Quodoshka teachings. I also dove into the art of alternative healing, learning EFT, Compassionate Communication, Tantric Fusion Massage, and I became a Certified Hypnotherapist.

During this process, the healing I experienced was literally life altering. Unfortunately, it was not enough. In addition to the healing work I was learning and implementing in my life, I realized that I also needed sexual healing.

To transform oneself from a sexual abuse victim to a sex goddess, Sexpert, and Tantric Intimacy Coach takes dedication, passion, and a desire to feel sexually alive and empowered. I also believe it is a life long journey. Although I am further along the path to sensual awakening than some, I still have a long way to go.

There is an old Theosophical statement that says “When the pupil is ready, the Master appears.” Some people have viewed me as their guru, master, or teacher, but intention is to simply share what I have learned. I offer guidance, connection, and I share the knowledge I have gained through my personal life and through working with hundreds of men, women, and couples.

Who are your clients?

I work with men, women, and couples of all ages and from all walks of life. My clients are entrepreneurs, corporate executives, business, owners, and employees. My clients may be deeply religious, non-religious, conservative, or liberal.  I work with people just like you. People who have unmet sexual needs, want to increase their sexual intelligence, or who want to experience more pleasure in either their professional or persona

It is my honor and deepest desire to share what she has learned with you so that you can experience love, passion, and fulfillment in your professional and personal life.

    I’m a male LMP and have often thought about the connection between the physical and energetic body. I’ve also studied Mantak Chia, Kundalini yoga and have had many Reiki sessions that have helped me with the more subtle emotional issues I feel impact my body. How do I intergrate or progress the tantric massage ideas in an industry already difficult for male therapists?

    1. Tantrachick says:

      Hi Nick,

      It is interesting. I just had a female practitioner, “Shakti” ask me a similar question last week. This is the post with my response As an LMP, tantra, Tantric energy, etc. does not fit. As far as my understanding, LMPs are specifically prohibited from working directly with the mind and emotions. I had a lengthy conversation about this very topic with an LMP who gave me an amazing massage at the Olympus Spa here in WA. She was telling me how she finds the limitations quite frustrating.

      As for being a male practitioner…I think you are right that it is more challenging. However, there are lots of incredible male practitioners who experience a great deal of success. I think it depends a lot on your intention and your ability to clearly represent your offerings and boundaries so that the receiver knows what to expect. It also helps by ensuring that you only work with clients that feel drawn to your specific offerings.

      The best advice i can give yo is to begin exploring in your personal life. There are a lot of people who offer sessions on a professional level without fully integrating the teachings and philosophies into their own life. I think that a practitioner can be much more effective if they are walking the walk…not just talking about it. Incorporating Tantra into you life is a powerful way to expand your pleasure..not just sexually, but in mind and spirit as well. Learning to cultivate and channel your sexual energy is an incredible gift…I am actually just about to publish my first book!!!!!!!!!!:-) The Guy’s Guide to Multiple Orgasms…although the title is catchy and meant for a more mainstream audience…there is a lot of useful information in it…I will be offering it at a reduced rate for the first few days so that I can receive some authentic reviews. If you’d like me to email you when my book is published so that you can get a copy at the reduced rate, please email me: joy@shaktara.com

      Also, if this post does not provide you with the answer you seek…or if more questions arise, please comment again…I love talking about this subject…so please keep the conversation going! From my heart to yours, joy

      ps: I will be interviewing Destin Gerek: The Erotic Rockstar tomorrow via Skype video/chat…I will keep your question in mind while speaking with him and then comment to let you know once I post his video interview…it may be really useful for you.

      Thank you Zeb…she is our youngest child. That is one of my favorite photos…

  7. zeb says:

    I recently had a chance to talk with Joy. She is a wonderful person, with so much patience to listen to her clients and help them identify their problems. She is an expert at helping you channel your inner energy, which is already there but must be rearranged and channeled in the proper direction in way that you can see your energy in the shape of PASSION. You will truly feel the impact of her work.
    I gave Joy a fantasy name of VIRTUAL MOM…

    1. Tantrachick says:

      Thank you so much for your endearing comment! I thoroughly enjoyed out session and am so happy to hear your positive updates and to know that you are experiencing breakthroughs…I can only facilitate and guide, but it is you who truly does the work! I am also so pleased that you bought my book and are already incorporating the techniques into your life! From my heart to yours, Joy “virtual mom”
