Is Tantra Too Sexy For YouTube?

On June 15th, 2012 we officially launched our Authentic Tantra Online Education Program to a world-wide audience.

As part of our promotion, we enjoy having video trailers of some of the course content so that you, our audience, can have a better idea of what it is we are actually offering you.

We offer detailed instruction in G-spot-Yoni massage for sexual healing & awakening the multi-orgasmic potential of every woman.

As we are doing the demonstrations LIVE, we were thrilled to capture on film myself (Devi Ward) go through the process of an actual Authentic Tantric healing during the session.

We created a video trailer for this particular course that includes footage of the beginning and end of the G-spot-Yoni Massage healing process, so that people would have a chance to see the natural and authentic beauty of this process.

The video trailer contains NO visible nudity, no explicit sexual content, no genital visuals, nothing that is actually “pornographic” in nature.

What you DO see, is Tantric Breathing with my partner, heart-centered connection, emotional intimacy, and me crying and releasing emotional sexual trauma, while my partner lovingly holds space for healing.

And yet, YouTube banned this video, not once but TWICE, on the grounds that it’s content was “pornographic and inappropriate”.

I appealed their decision, as they clearly states in their content guideline that “YouTube makes exceptions regarding nudity for appropriate educational, documentary, artistic and scientific contexts, but only in limited circumstances where the purpose of posting is clear and any nudity it is not sexual in nature.

And yet, when I did a youtube search for “naked girls” these are some of the video’s that came up:

Big Tits Boob Ass Shakingwhich features a 12-16 year old girl in g-string panties, being explicitly sexually suggestive

Sexy Strip Tease Naked Porn Featuring a young woman stripping for a porn interview

Apparently these video’s are NOT considered abnormally sexually explicit or suggestive, and our Tantra Education Trailer is, maybe because you can see my partners hand covering my genitals.

Apparently that isn’t appropriate for public consumption.

What do YOU think?

Is our Tantra Trailer too sexy for YouTube, or is the problem on their end, with the powers that be?

  1. What Allison said here is so true. It seems to be something fearful for our society to see a deep healing on the sexual plane. Something that is out of the typical “ordinary” realm when it comes to sexual content is more difficult for many to digest. You two are doing amazing work and in taking us out of our comfort zones and into that healing place, the shift will occur. Thank you thank you for being open and going for it!

  2. Yeah, it’s pretty mind blowing to view what youtube accepts as “appropriate” content, in contrast with what we were showing. It absolutely verifies that sexuality is one of the main areas in which we need such deep healing as a species. Thanks so much for your comments 🙂

  4. Didn’t strike me as at all pornograhic. Like you, I find it ironic that images of women’s (usually) bodies are used for purely commercial gain without the batting of an eyelid, yet anything that threatens to explore and affirm sexual expression as loving/nurturing/healing is shut down. Given the amount of violent imagery originating in the US I find the puritanical response especially ironic. Before you’re 16 you can freely see people murdering each other, but not making love. We’re no better here in New Zealand. keep up the good work 🙂

    • Hey Bruce,
      Thanks so much for your comment. The actual footage that we have for sale is educationally “graphic”, (as you kind of need to see it to do it), but yeah, I intentionally edited the trailer to be what I thought was very “tame” and discreet, so that it could be shown on Youtube. Apparently they have very different values than me, as does much of the western world when it comes to sexual evolution! Really appreciate you taking the time to comment 🙂 Cheers!

  5. When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I
    receive four emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

  6. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i
    was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

  7. It’s amazing to go to see this website and reading the views of all colleagues concerning this paragraph, while I am also zealous of getting familiarity.
