Persons who were in three different cults (International Church of Christ, Andrew Cohen's EnlightenNext and One Taste tell their stories. One Taste is Story #3)

What makes these so valuable is each person describes the complex mixture of good and bad that attracted them to the group, bonded them deeply to the group and its leaders, and led to considerable sunk costs before they realized they needed to leave.

In the case of One Taste, it came down to money.


THREE FORMER CULT MEMBERS ON WHAT IT TOOK FOR THEM TO FINALLY BREAK FREE

I started working for them when I lived in the house, and that was also amazing — until the team stopped making money, and we stopped getting paid. There was all this other drama as well, and I started to see that making money was a huge focus of the organization, more than the teachings. My savings were gone pretty quick: I paid for the $15,000 coaching program. They got people like me, who didn’t have 15 grand, to put it all on credit cards, and they got people like me, who didn’t really have a job, to continue not having a job and living off their credit cards, which is why I left with a pretty hefty sum of debt.

But...there were benefits at first.

Quote

People get hooked because they take the $99 class, the clit-stroking practice, and most people’s lives do change positively in some way. Then they buy into the more expensive programs, which are less valuable than their cheap programs, but that’s how marketing works. I actually stand by their practice: It’s super legitimate, and most of their claims, though they might be exaggerated — what it does for men is, it teaches them to have an extremely long attention span. It develops into intuition that can make us feel our body more. This might sound crazy, but all the benefits I get from doing yoga I definitely got from doing this practice. I got to be more in my body and got good at paying attention to a really small object in a meditative fashion. It made my sex life a lot better, too.

Inside Hollywood’s Orgasm Cult

Quote

With the support of stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Daedone built a lucrative empire on the promise of a 15-minute female orgasm, but what seemed like sexual salvation to some was denounced as sexploitation by many others.

Nicole Daedone sues the BBC for libel

From the UK publication The Times, 14 April 2022: Gwyneth Paltrow's sex guru, Nicole Daedone sues the BBC for libel.


I assume this is in response to the BBC podcast The Orgasm Cult ? This seemed to me to cover the same ground as the Bloomberg articles , etc., so perhaps it is because the libel laws are different in the UK?

My weekend at OneTaste, the ‘sex cult’ made famous by Netflix’s Orgasm Inc


Orgasmic meditation’ was sold as female empowerment; meanwhile the business behind it was being investigated by the FBI. Cult Trip author Anke Richter recounts her own visit to OneTaste, the bizarre company at the centre of a new Netflix documentary.

(Quote)Sandra told me she gave massages after work to be able to afford a “Nicole Circle”, a women-only weekend with the leader that would set her back US$6500.

Only gaunt and grey-haired Mark*, who had known Daedone since her wild days at the sex commune Lafayette Morehouse and followed her loyally on her unusual career path ever since, seemed weary. He became a sex addict in the early days, he told me. Now he was monogamous. OMing for him was “like walking the dog – you don’t always feel like doing it, but you know it needs to be done.”(Unquote)

Lafayette Morehouse is still hard at it today:
