There have been several deeply disturbing exposes in recent years about sexual abuse, violations, and misconduct in the tantra and sacred sexuality industry.
Several credible claims of abuse and misconduct have been lodged against various well-known tantra schools and at least one person has had criminal charges filed against them.
In November of 2020, BBC Radio released a 10 episode podcast expose on the One Taste Cult (which is NOT TANTRA but is often confused with Tantra).
In this episode of Sex Is Medicine, Devi explores the troubling climate of abuse in the Western sacred sexuality industry, the importance of lineage and accountability, and outlines some red flags and things to watch out for in your Tantra providers. She is joined by colleagues, certified Authentic Tantra® practitioners, and ACS certified sexologists, Karen Craig and Rosie Bitts.
