Guys, First off I want to thank the administrators for merging the two threads. That is a nice piece of forum wizardry. Reading some of the new posts here, it seems clear to me that the thought of having a courteous and respectful conversation on this issue, driven by objective information, was a bit delusional on my part. Since I have no desire to engage in forum wars, I am going to ma

The question has to be asked. Is One Taste Urban Retreat Center in San Francisco a type of 'front-group' for Lafayette Morehouse? Is it being used as new branding, as the More University and Lafayette Morehouse brands are so damaged due to their past activities? Are they just trying to rebrand themselves as more urban and cool with the OneTaste brand, and move away from the dated

another interesting thing about the OneTaste.us website. www.OneTaste.us There are no links anywhere on that site to Victor Baranco, More University, Lafayette Morehouse, Institute of Human Abilities, or any of these other groups its based on. Not a single word comes up on their site. The info about Baranco came from other sites, it probably slipped out in earlier interviews that Daedone did

in Philadelphia, Marc and Rebekah Beneteau are running TRELLIS HOUSE, which is another clone group of Lafayette Morehouse (previously More University), which is basically the same structure as One Taste by Nicole Daedone. Both are based on Victor Baranco. (how many other groups like these are out there??) Notice how Trellis House uses the word TRANSFORMATION constantly, and that Marc Beneteau

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ One last post here... Marc Beneteau says that almost no one pays the $2,000 a week at OneTaste? HOW DOES HE KNOW THAT? Has he seen their private accounting and payment books? Is that a sucker-price for guys who are losers? Do young women get in for free and guys pay triple? Or is he just making it up? Or writing what OneTaste asked him to write? Its either a false statem

As predicted, as the google alerts get out there, they come to try to do some PR. Someone named Marc Beneteau has started another thread about OneTaste and Victor Baranco, to try and defend their methods. Why is Marc Beneteau starting a "new thread" when there already is a thread going? What is the purpose in that? To derail that train of analysis? Marc Beneteau has also state

In the words of Stephen Colbert, Nicole Daedone has been NAILED. The Victor Baranco connection is very important. Victor Baranco was the founder of The Institute of Human Abilities, where some of the initial staff of OneTaste came from. You can see that Nicole Daedone just copied their course model, language, structure, and everything else. OneTaste is a clone. Victor Baranco was runn

there is also a OneTaste SF YouTube channel. OneTasteSF Some of this stuff smacks of the Landmark Forum, bigtime, the way they pitch it. This video clip below, is just about getting lonely-heart men to pay to talk to women about getting sex. Pure cash-grab.

(excerpts about One Taste. Notice the review that does say that its $2,000 a week, unless you are a lady of the female gender. That marketing method is a variant of no-cover charge for ladies on Ladies Night at TGIF). ___________________________________ Reviews From reviews I have found on a review site, yelp.com they claim that OneTaste ranges from being a cult, orgy, a spa, telemarket

Its invariable that whenever Google alerts cue members of a group, they come and start their PR. The same thing has happened on other websites where criticism of OneTaste was posted, so at some point they will probably come and post here too. The bottom line is that Nicole Daedone has no training or credentials to be fooling around with live-in sex groups, therapy, experimental communities, M

This is another puff-piece, or perhaps a fluffer-piece about One Taste and their MAN COURSE, to teach guys how to pickup women, for a price. The article functions as an advertisement. "If you really want to see what we're all about, you'll take the Man Course," she said. And with that, my fate was sealed. My research later that night revealed that the Man Course would invo

This is a bizarre little new group, with lots of deception going on. Nicole Daedone is marketing the group as Naked Yoga, as that is a great marketing tool. But that is obviously not what is going on, that is just the salespitch for the media. There are many serious problems with this group. 1) cultic commune techniques: Daedone has learned the methods to manipulate people while in a cultic

Thank you for the tremendous work, Anticult! I'd been looking into them on occasion, but had never known about the Boranco angle. The fact that Daedone was in a Theosophist group was troubling enough, the Boranco aspect takes it to a completely different level. great research job, AC.

notice how in their advertising they use deception, they don't talk about what is really going on in there.
