*OY in the Afternoon
Communal-Solo Erotic Embodiment Practice
Orgasmic Yoga*, otherwise known as erotic mindfulness practice or erotic embodiment practice, is masturbation using conscious, open-hearted sexual arousal to explore what is erotically possible for you as an embodied human. It’s masturbation, meditation, and everything in between.
OY in the Afternoon is an individual experience in a communal erotic setting. Somatic Sex Educator Tracy Montgomery will gently and loosely guide the practice as we weave breath, movement, sound, self-touch, noticing, and intention into our self-pleasuring practices. There is no agenda, no rush, and no judgement in this sex positive and body positive space.
Everyone 18+ is welcome to join us for OY in the Afternoon:
ALL bodies, genders, and presentations are welcome.
There is no touch of others, even if attending with a partner(s).
There is no eye-gazing or staring, but a soft, appreciate gaze that does not linger is okay.
Nudity is welcome but not required.
You participate as much or as little as feels good for you; folks can be fully clothed, simply breathing and doing Kegels, or fully nude for the practice (or anywhere in between).
Important: Remember to be on time: Once the playshop has started, the doors are closed to further arrivals. If you arrive late, we will welcome you at a future event.
Registration and Fee*: $30 prepaid.
Registration is required, and you must prepay to reserve your space. When you register, you will be asked to complete a short intake form so we can start to get to know you, along with a recent photo of yourself. Payment may be made via e-transfer or PayPal. For more information, or to register, please contact Tracy

Your Potluck offering – please label ingredients
Orgasmic Yoga is a powerful ritual that can stir up quite a few emotions. Tracy will be participating in her own solo practice, but will be available to you should something come up. You will be advised to not stare at each other, and not to keep eye contact. Instead, you will be invited to keep your eyes open in a soft gaze and breathe through any feelings that might come up.
Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to settle in. We close the door to arrivals promptly at 1pm to ensure a safe-enough space. You are free to leave at any time during the practice, but we hope you’ll stay for the potluck.

About Orgasmic Yoga
Orgasmic yoga doesn’t mean you should or will orgasm, it’s about attuning to pleasure. We won’t be doing any traditional yoga poses together, but it might be something you add to your own erotic practice.
Inviting mindfulness into our self-pleasuring practice immediately invites more sensation and pleasure and bigger, better orgasms. Long term, the practice of putting our bodies into extended periods of pleasure creates new neural pathways for pleasure, hardwiring us into a more positive state of being. Through living in reverence with our own pleasure, we literally switch ourselves on and live a life rich with beauty, deep peace, and satiation.
Free from outside stimuli, like porn and fantasy (though we absolutely love those), a mindful pleasure practice is an opportunity to explore your body, sensation and pleasure from head to toe with no rush or agenda.
In this space, folks have connected to their bodies, pleasure, and eroticism outside of a reciprocal, partnered experience; following illness or surgery; and as they move through the processes of healing and/or aging.
“Orgasmic Yoga involves pleasurable, intimate and transformative practices that individuals, couples, and groups can do while sexually aroused.
When practiced regularly over time, Orgasmic Yoga can change your life. The practice sessions involve breathing, savouring, sound, movement, touch, placement of attention, and awareness of intention. Orgasmic Yoga is practiced where you are —solo or with the companions you choose.
