    I was just wondering how many guys here have experience a Body Electric Workshop?
    I have done 2 so far and I can heartily recommend them to any. They are very positive and safe environment. They are about perceiving that Sensuality is more than in your groin and genitals. The largest sexually sensitive organ on the body is your skin actually.
    In Body Electric you learn to give and receive Healthy Wholistic Massage. There is NO ejaculation during the weekend and the week prior to the workshop. It also is amazing to find out that the guys who appear to have the great bodies also have issues of self-worth, and perceptions about their bodies that you wouldn't think. This is done with some very positive exercises.
    When you experience about 8 hands massaging you, your mind can keep with - "Oh, Joe Masssage Guy is massaging me here or there, its everywhere at once, and you go into a kind of altered state of Ecstasy.
    I really recommend this workshop for any of the guys here, especially if your new to being out, inexperienced, this can really be a godsend. They have more advanced workshops after you've completed this Level 1. I'm not affilated with them, so this isnt' an advertisment, just a positive recommendation.
    Namaste and bless you all,
    StuMan :)

    In answer to your question rksportswear Richard.

    When I did BE (Body Elctric) it cost about $325. It is offered in Major Cities. Check their website for more info on that. I did the one in Atlanta, two different times and its worth it, because you come away with an amazing experience.
    Its really important to conserve your Ching Chi, ie, Vital Fluids, so don't ejaculate for a week prior to the weekend workshop. NO ejaculation during the workshop either. What happens is that you learn to GIVE & RECEIVE full body erotic massage over a 2 day weekend, full days. Its done very hygenically and very safe conscious.
    Some of the massage "techniques" have names like "Rock around the Clock", "The Juicer" and more. Those are some nice hints at what to expect.
    But there is much more involved with the workshop than just massage. Its a WAY of Reclaiming your sense of Sacred Sexuality and discovering all kinds of ways of expreiencing sensuality.
    From a Taoist perspective, or yoga persp., I think you Ching Chi gets recirculated and you FEEL really good after the workshop, and while you think you'll feel like, "Oh I've really got to have sex now". It turns out the opposite. You feel satiated. And it last for several days, too. I'm sure its a little different for everyone, but many have reported similar experiences.
    It carries over into your Love~making sessions too.
    They also offer a Massage Certification Course at their school in San Francisco.
    Namaste all,
    StuMan

    What Happens during a weekend?

    It depends somewhat on the Location and who is teaching it, but all the basics are the same.
    Atlanta is good place to attend for gay men.
    One of the first things we did was to divide up, based on total in class, about 33 in ours, into small groups of 4. After sitting and making just eye contact for awhile around a circle. The groups of 4, with someone voluteering to go first, the other 3 will, very slowly and sensuously undress the first volunteer, who will have his eyes closed to just FEEL the experience. Its such a turn-on. And everyone usually loves this. You do this until everyone is undressed. Than you might dance to 2-3 songs to loosen up, get the blood and chi flowing. Again it depends on the teacher, they are allowed some choice on the Way they teach it. But every teacher of theirs I've experienced was very good. They have a definite quality that they maintain.
    Over time you begin to move into some simple massage techniques. Its done in a graduated Process that Unfolds over the two days. You learn some simple breathing techniques that you will use when you are on the massage table on the last day afternoon. Its important to learn the techniques, they are an important part of the Quality of your Experience I would say. Done right, you will have a mind blowing expereince. And DEFINITELY do the Shrouding technique. That's all I'll say about that.

    I was Blessed to Experience my first BE(Body Electric) massage actually from my partner, and that was really awesome. It was done with such loving intention and joy of Spirit that it really put me over the edge, but a very good edge.
    I don't want to reveal to much. Its best not to have to much of a pre-conceived idea, but to be Open to Being Vulnerable and yet, Trusting that you are in safe hands.
    The difference is that in the workshop you might have 4 guys working on you at once. The Mind just kind keep up with the sensations and so that Aspect of yourself that keeps a tally going kind of melts out-of-the-way and your Sudeenly Just the Sensations, The Feelings.
    Its learning to Ride The Tiger.

    I teach Body Electric and also do it with clients who are seeking to build a lot of erotic energy.

    Just imagine 15 different strokes on cock and balls!!! Beats " up/down, up/down" and day.

    I've known many people to take Body Electric...i recall them (Body Electric) buying a resort in Guerneville, California.

    As far as guys with great bodies having the most hang-ups: no big surprise.

    It sounds very cool. It is also hard to believe that with all that sensual touching no one cums.

    StuMan,

    I can not go a day without ejaculation. How you could go a week, I just don't know. And I know 3 or 4 guys with there hands all over me, I would make a mess. Don't know you do it. Sounds like group sex to me.

    Ok, this sounds realy interesting...
    Is the aim of the game not to cum or what?
    I've heard of some meditation techniques where a man can teach himself to prolong sex and ejaculation by masturbating withut ejaculation a few times and then with ejaculation etc. Having multiple orgasms or enlongating the ones I have, sounds worth the agony of not ejaculating for a week. How possible it is would be an entirly different story though...

    Um... actually it's a poem that Walt Whitman wrote in 1855.

    =====

    1

    I SING the Body electric;
    The armies of those I love engirth me, and I engirth them;
    They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them,
    And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the Soul.

    Was it doubted that those who corrupt their own bodies conceal themselves; 5
    And if those who defile the living are as bad as they who defile the dead?
    And if the body does not do as much as the Soul?
    And if the body were not the Soul, what is the Soul?

    2

    The love of the Body of man or woman balks account—the body itself balks account;
    That of the male is perfect, and that of the female is perfect.

    The expression of the face balks account;
    But the expression of a well-made man appears not only in his face;
    It is in his limbs and joints also, it is curiously in the joints of his hips and wrists;
    It is in his walk, the carriage of his neck, the flex of his waist and knees—dress does not hide him;
    The strong, sweet, supple quality he has, strikes through the cotton and flannel;
    To see him pass conveys as much as the best poem, perhaps more;
    You linger to see his back, and the back of his neck and shoulder-side.

    The sprawl and fulness of babes, the bosoms and heads of women, the folds of their dress, their style as we pass in the street, the contour of their shape downwards,
    The swimmer naked in the swimming-bath, seen as he swims through the transparent green-shine, or lies with his face up, and rolls silently to and fro in the heave of the water,
    The bending forward and backward of rowers in row-boats—the horseman in his saddle,
    Girls, mothers, house-keepers, in all their performances,
    The group of laborers seated at noon-time with their open dinner-kettles, and their wives waiting,
    The female soothing a child—the farmer’s daughter in the garden or cow-yard,
    The young fellow hoeing corn—the sleigh-driver guiding his six horses through the crowd,
    The wrestle of wrestlers, two apprentice-boys, quite grown, lusty, good-natured, native-born, out on the vacant lot at sundown, after work,
    The coats and caps thrown down, the embrace of love and resistance,
    The upper-hold and the under-hold, the hair rumpled over and blinding the eyes;
    The march of firemen in their own costumes, the play of masculine muscle through clean-setting trowsers and waist-straps,
    The slow return from the fire, the pause when the bell strikes suddenly again, and the listening on the alert,
    The natural, perfect, varied attitudes—the bent head, the curv’d neck, and the counting;
    Such-like I love—I loosen myself, pass freely, am at the mother’s breast with the little child,
    Swim with the swimmers, wrestle with wrestlers, march in line with the firemen, and pause, listen, and count.

    3

    I know a man, a common farmer—the father of five sons;
    And in them were the fathers of sons—and in them were the fathers of sons.

    This man was of wonderful vigor, calmness, beauty of person;
    The shape of his head, the pale yellow and white of his hair and beard, and the immeasurable meaning of his black eyes—the richness and breadth of his manners,
    These I used to go and visit him to see—he was wise also;
    He was six feet tall, he was over eighty years old—his sons were massive, clean, bearded, tan-faced, handsome;
    They and his daughters loved him—all who saw him loved him;
    They did not love him by allowance—they loved him with personal love;
    He drank water only—the blood show’d like scarlet through the clear-brown skin of his face;
    He was a frequent gunner and fisher—he sail’d his boat himself—he had a fine one presented to him by a ship-joiner—he had fowling-pieces, presented to him by men that loved him;
    When he went with his five sons and many grand-sons to hunt or fish, you would pick him out as the most beautiful and vigorous of the gang.

    You would wish long and long to be with him—you would wish to sit by him in the boat, that you and he might touch each other.

    4

    I have perceiv’d that to be with those I like is enough,
    To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
    To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
    To pass among them, or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a moment—what is this, then?
    I do not ask any more delight—I swim in it, as in a sea.

    There is something in staying close to men and women, and looking on them, and in the contact and odor of them, that pleases the soul well;
    All things please the soul—but these please the soul well.

    5

    This is the female form;
    A divine nimbus exhales from it from head to foot;
    It attracts with fierce undeniable attraction!
    I am drawn by its breath as if I were no more than a helpless vapor—all falls aside but myself and it;

    well, it's too long for the forums, apparently
