Every Thursday morning, about 20 folks convene in a house south of Sunset in Silver Lake for OM Circle, a group Orgasmic Meditation gathering that's focused on a 15-minute clitoris-stroking practice. Despite the bevy of spread-eagle women whose clits are stimulated by certified OM trainers, there is nothing lewd about the mindfulness practice. The trainers are devotees of One Taste, a community devoted to the power of orgasm — to sharing it and proselytizing it. The class is free, but OM Circles are only open to those who have earned their OM badges — meaning they've paid for and passed the introductory course, and they're not registered sex offenders. When it comes to letting relative strangers bring you to climax, that seems reasonable enough.
