“The Tantric Path teaches us to embrace and unify the ordinary, the erotic and the sacred dimensions of life, all of which have their roots in spirit.” – Margot Anand

We are hiring an entire nudity friendly camping ground exclusive for the Festival’s use this year to be able to offer an incredible live – in experience with old and new friends. Nature is bountiful and beautiful there only 20 mins south of Byron Bay you can truly relax and enjoy a selection of incredible workshops, night events and all day massage and cuddle facilities.

Marion Ellyard, Ron van Twuiver and the team are bringing together the ingredients for an event that aims to appeal to anyone looking to explore and deepen their understanding, including a range of presenters from around the world offering sessions exploring various aspects of love, relating, consciousness, sacredness, connection, sensuality, sexuality, yoga, meditation and a diverse range of associated topics.

“We are very mindful to balance the presentations around love, relating and conscious sexuality in a way that is meaningful and approachable for anyone, no matter their background or previous knowledge”

It is important to us that this event offers a safe and fun way for people to approach this material and understand what it is all about. Our European Peers have been involved in festivals like these for a lot longer and it’s nice to offer this to the local community of Byron Bay, national and international visitors from all over the world.

These are the FOUR workshops which I will be presenting at Taste of Love!

1) The Art of Deep Listening

Do you know the difference between hearing and listening?
Have you been told you don’t listen?

Would you like to be a better listener?
In this session, we will practice deep listening – not just for the words, and what they mean… but more…

This is a practice circle where there is no teacher other than life itself.

We want to listen better because listening is about information, knowledge, and wisdom.

Listen because your life depends on it.

Without deep listening, we cannot be there for our beloved.

Deep listening connects, heals, and is love.

We want to love deeply… feel deeply… and so let’s listen.

Listen with your ears – understand what they mean.

Listen with your heart – feel what they feel.

Listen with your whole being – read their energy.
Listen deeply.

P/S… every practice circle will be different! Join us and meet new friends!

3) Get Together Snuggle Party

There is vast literature of the benefits of hugging and yet we are a touch-deprived society. We are afraid to touch, afraid to ask for touch and yet afraid to ask or reach out for the touch we need.

A snuggle party is a clothes-on non-genital workshop for adult participants on the art of consensual and boundary-appropriate touch. The premise of snuggle parties is the recognition of “need to be held” is very close to and equally vital as more conventionally accepted human needs like thirst, hunger, and sex.

We like to invite you to come co-create this safe space in which all genders can begin to communicate more authentically and listen profoundly.

In this space, you will have the benefit of doing as little or as much as you desire – and will be encouraged to just be you. You will learn to create strong boundaries for yourself without shutting others down and begin to be more open to others and able to give and receive comfortably, and be touched, valued and nurtured.

Core Benefits for Participants of this Session

  • Increased confidence in sexual communication and express
  • Letting go of the discomfort and shame around touch
  • Responding accordingly to your authentic yes and no
  • Better at asking for what you need/ want/ desire
  • Better at taking and receiving touch/ pleasure

  • Come in comfortable clothes
  • Own blanket/ towel/ yoga mat/ pillows

4) Lingam Massage

This clothing-optional session is based on the penis massage techniques developed by Joseph Kramer who created the Sexological Bodywork certification. Relationship Counselor & Clinical Sexologist Dr. Martha Tara Lee have been teaching these techniques for the past 10 years. She will cover the following topics: penile anatomy; warming up and playing with cock with your hands, penis massage, how to experiment with speed, pressure and rhythm, lubes, safer sex, and more!
Penises come in different sizes, angles, colors, smells and tastes. This is a workshop open to all genders, and penis owners will benefit from learning and understanding more about their own anatomy. Let’s demystify this often misunderstood part of the anatomy, and get all your questions answered, regardless of your gender or sexual orientation.
These are the SAME techniques taught to clients who have premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, and erectile difficulties (not due to physical nature). They are, therefore, therapeutic techniques often taught and used in tantra and somatic bodywork.
You will learn:
  • Male sexual anatomy – including the location of the elusive Male G spot
  • More than 20 penile massage techniques – frenulum, shaft, testicles etc.
  • Types of lubricants to incorporate into your sex play
  • The role and importance of breathing for orgasmic experiences
  • How to experiment with speed, pressure, and rhythm
  • How to achieve long-lasting ecstasy
  • What an energy orgasm is
Save yourself years of heartache, confusion, and sexual anxieties due to the lack of understanding about sexual functioning by signing up for this workshop. All emotions, questions, and laughter are welcomed! You get all this knowledge once and for all in THIS workshop!
Bring: Own floor towel/ sarong/ lubricant/ gloves if possible
Interactive and Experiential parts
Almost the entire presentation will be interactive and experiential. This is a clothing optional workshop – please bring your own sarong/ lubricant/ gloves if possible.

About Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Dr. Martha Tara Lee set out to make a positive difference in embarking on her doctorate in human sexuality before launching Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples who wish to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

She also holds certificates in counselling, coaching and sex therapy, and her fourth degree – a Masters in Counselling in May 2018. In practice for more than 10 years, she is the only certified sexuality educator and certified sexuality educator supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Singapore. She is also a Red Tent Women’s Circles Facilitator from Star of Ishtar.

She was recognised as one of ‘Top 50 Inspiring Women Under 40′ by Her World in July 2010, and one of ‘Top 100 Inspiring Women’ by CozyCot in March 2011. She has published four books: Love, Sex and Everything In-BetweenOrgasmic YogaFrom Princess to Queen and {Un}Inhibited.

Martha works with individuals and couples in private coaching sessions, and conducts her own workshops. She takes prides in making sure all her workshops are also fun, educational, and sex-positive. This comes easily to her because even though she is extremely dedicated and serious about her work, she fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing and sacred. As such, this serious light-heartedness has shone through again and again. For her full profile, click here. Email her here.
