I wasn't alone in calling it “even scarier than talking about sex”; the said it was “a buzzkill.” Now, less than two weeks after launch, Apple has pulled the app from its store, citing a portion of its guidelines for developers that prohibits apps that “present excessively objectionable or crude content.” Good2Go creator Lee Ann Allman told me that while Apple didn’t provide many details about its decision to remove the app, “they did say it was not deemed to be crude.” So: objectionable.In light of Apple’s decision, Allman decided to remove the app from Google’s app store and shut down its website.This morning I caught up with Mangala from Mystic Sex to ask a few questions about her courses at Pulse Brunswick.What I am really passionate about is the thread between the mystical and the divine and sexuality.There are a lot of people offering tantra workshops, and there is a big tantric community here in Melbourne.Many of these people are offering traditional tantra workshops and I wanted to bring in stuff that I am really passionate about and can transmit really strongly.Once the novelty of the experience wears off, you will begin to feel used, and that feeling will corrode your self-respect.
The Invoking the One workshop is a sumptuous full moon ritual where we gather to release the obstacles blocking us from love, and to call in our beloved.
You’d be forgiven for concluding that the gender most interested in mixing it up might be…women.
What's really fascinating is that with this shift in understanding comes a profound shift in how we as a society are deciding to respond.
When Good2Go launched last month, I tested it out and concluded that it was impractical (who wants to fill out a four-minute horniness/sobriety quiz before having sex?
) and insecure (the app kept a database with sexual consent records that could be accessible by law enforcement).
