And of course, to counter the negative reviews of One Taste, One Taste is shilling reviews on sites like Yelp [] with their own people, and people directed/suggested to write there.

You can see the pattern.
The so-called reviewer says something like:

...a friend invited me, I knew nothing about it, everyone was friendly not creepy, they are not a cult, there was no orgy, its all about women's sexuality...slow sex....and Nicole was a genius...some come on down young women, don't worry about all those warnings from others, you are safe...and I don't know anything about OneTaste, but come on down on Wednesday nights, here the address, number, website, shill, shill, shill, shill....its all about women's trust us...I mean them...

Just direct standard techniques. Bait & switch.
Its about the sales pitch to women, and young women. They marketing and advertise to women, because that is what drives the business.
And like all LGAT's, they offer regular free-talks, to get people into the tent. Then the expert persuaders start their work on people. They get the names, numbers, email, and follow-up. They don't start with extreme behaviors, they start with TALKING, and then its all taken one step at a time, the build it up with grooming over weeks and months.

One sorta hoped OneTaste would have gone under, but it seems to have gotten worse. They are becoming more subtle, and even more deceptive.
The real reviews of OneTaste are less than 3 Stars, which they are trying to bury.

Interesting, that again, still, Wikipedia seems to be edited to take out the name of Nicole Daedone's (powerful, connected, wealthy, internet mogul) partner?
Even wikipedia lists the numerous problems with the article, which is just an advertisement for One Taste, constantly manipulated by those in the group.


Search Google for:

"reese jones" "one taste"
"reese jones" "nicole daedone"

A recent version of the article had this text removed...even though the NYT had carried those details.
Quote: "From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"OneTaste is a coed live-in commune and for-profit business dedicated to female orgasm, that promotes greater personal awareness and interpersonal connectivity through the practice of Orgasmic Meditation and Slow Sex. One Taste receives support though financial resources provided by venture capitalist Reese Jones, a founder of Netopia."

Thats another thing about any sex group or LGAT--and something for happy graduates to consider.

How can you be sure you were not recorded or your picture taken?

That is something all young people need to be aware of when approached for any of these ventures--the danger of blackmail.

These days it is only too easy for a stranger to photograph you during an intimate moment.

It could compromise your future.

Not something you'd want to have mentioned in your Alumni Newsletter.

You might have to turn down offers of valuable internships in areas requiring security clearances. You'd have to worry about moral turpitude issues if you later discover you want to enter one of the professions, or aim for a career in the military.

If you reach commissioned officer rank and they later learn through pictures or other records that in your youthful years you were in a sex group, you could lose your rank, its retirement benefits and perhaps be punished for having concealed this information.

**Any time someone invites you to one of these things demand that they give you a legally binding document signed dated in writing that you will not be recorded or filmed. That document should stipulate that you are not to be recorded, filmed, and that you are not to be the subject of record keeping, except possibly for matters such as payment of rent, should you decide to move in.

If they drop you like a hot potato after you insist on these docmentary measures to protect your privacy--then thats a sign right there that you dodged a bullet.

If they react by trying to edge you out of the room and away from other potential recruits when you talk loudly about your desire for legal documented guarantees of privacy and no film taking--thats a red hot proof you will have touched a nerve and were right to speak up.

(When embarrassing medical procedures are done, HIPAA regulations protect your privacy and your records, too.)

If they stop pestering you to participate--thats an important sign that you dodged a bullet.

And in this case, anyone can see that photos of everyone were taken, but just the woman's faces were cropped out of that particular photo.

But like any photo shoot, there would be countless other photos taken, which the photographer holds forever in their computer or website, and can do what they want with. So if the photographer has taken close-ups of the people, then they have that forever on file, and can turn up anywhere.

Even the photographer, calls the One Taste building a "compound".

"portrait of Nicole Daedone shot for 7 x 7's Love and Sex Issue. Sz, make up stylist Meaganne McCandess and I spent the day at the One Taste compound"

Nicole Daedone has her clothes on, and is not in black. She's special, she sits on a stool, and directs the men in group sexual stimulation.
The men's faces are being shown as they follow Daedone's direction.
The women's naked lower bodies are shown, they just cropped out their faces.

If OneTaste is supposed to be about female sexual liberation, then why are only the women's faces cropped out, and their naked lower body parts kept in the advertising photo?
Who is One Taste marketing to, when they are using women naked below with waist, with some very creepy looking men all dressed in black doing something to these women?
Is that marketing to women? Of course not, the photo is marketing to men.
That is simply sex marketing. Its so blatant in that creepy photo for One Taste.

And of course, they get a shill advertising lifestyle article in the local SF paper. Money talks.
The Big O: Nicole Daedone, OneTaste Founder []

They don't ask her why she copied the mechanized techniques of group sexual exploitation and profit-making from Victor Baranco, that is not in the fairy-tale marketing script.
Verbally, they appear to market to women and female orgasm. Of course, that is designed as the same sales pitch as other sects to sell "pleasure".
They need to attract women to the group, or they have nothing.

And like Vegas, if the Madame fills the house with women, then with a little sex marketing, the paying customers will find them.
What One Taste is doing to people, and and who they are selling to, who is paying the real money, is ironically all represented in that one photo. []

"Bottom line, it isn't the practice or any of the surface claims. It is the underneath stripping of your connection to yourself and plugging you into the group think that can be dangerous.
If you are at all in doubt about your OneTaste experience, read the book Combating Cult Mind Control. Believe me, it opened my eyes. OneTaste techniques are on every page. "

And amazingly, "Reese Jones" is still expunged from Wikipedia.

He's listed as a trustee for Singularity University, but no page about this powerful silicon valley internet entrepreneur.

Is Reese Jones really such a non-notable nobody that Wikipedia finds him irrelevant?

Guess its useful to be a possible buddy or possible investor with Jimbo Wales at Wikipedia, and have buddies at Wikipedia to censor your name, so the little people can't have a chance to accumulate info documented and referenced on your activities. (like the NYT)

Its better to only allow the info at sites that can be totally controlled.
Its beyond laughable that a Wikipedia page about this notable internet silicon valley multimillionaire has been managed to be blocked.
At the very very very bottom of the Linked-In profile for Groups and Association you have []


Imagine that.
Groups and Associations. Wikipedia.

And Wikipedia has blocked, deleted, censored references links about that person, like from the New York Times. Nothing about One Taste, or or anything other than the official story.

How many powerful people are able to keep their own name and activities out of Wikipedia for years on end? Name even one?
That's backroom power, money talks, as they say.
Its utterly amazing they've been able to get away with doing that.

If someone is involved with Wikipedia as a Group and Association, possibly as a venture capitalist with Wikipedia in some way, so then its ok for Wikipedia to block entries on that person, and not disclose it?
Is that how it works?

Well, there you have it.
Since this was brought forward in this thread 2 years ago [] now there is a tiny small print admission that in fact there is a Reese Jones involvement with Wikipedia, in both cases tucked at the bottom of the bio, with a single word.
No explanation, no actual details, just a single word mention, obviously in case it hits the media, then they can say technically the conflict of interest was disclosed.
But of course there are no details whatsoever given.

With a venture capitalist..."SUPPORTS" means money. It doesn't mean a metaphysical emotional support, it means donations, investments, seed capital, and/or time and expertise being used.

So if you are involved somehow with "supporting" Wikipedia as a venture capitalist professional, then you can direct Wikpedia to delete and censor information about you? Is that how Wikipedia public education supposed to work?

Someone should ask Jimbo Wales about Reese Jones on live TV.

For the record, below is some info that first appeared in this thread, then later in the NYT, and is censored from Wikipedia.

-----------NYT quote-------------
"Reese Jones, a venture capitalist-slash-geek-slash Ms. Daedone’s boyfriend, likens orgasmic meditation to massage.
“It’s a procedure to nourish the limbic system, like yoga or Pilates, with no other strings attached,” he said. “When you go to a massage therapist,” he added, “you don’t take the masseuse to dinner afterward.”
"Now she lives with Mr. Jones, her boyfriend, a braniac who sold a computer software company he founded, Netopia, to Motorola for $208 million, and makes financial resources available to One Taste, including helping to buy a retreat in Stinson Beach, Calif."
